I wont go
through those steps.. after I got all those positioned like I
merged all the TOP elements above the frame. Then Hid them or
X'd them out on the layer palette.

the dragons nostrils to flare some..
so to make sure all
the frames are selected Ctrl + A then Shift + X to
export the frames back to PSP to edit them.
#22. I used the magic
wand tool (tolerance 15) to select the places where I
wanted to put the noise glitter... after I selected what I
I went to noise
#23. I applied
the noise to each of the frame layers... starting at 11 %
13% then 15%
If you notice in the
above capture... I didn't select the places where it was
solid... its just random... not all over it..
#24. After I
apply the noise... on Frame 2 on the layer palette... I used
the Warp Brush
with the brush just
big enough to cover the dragons nostrils.. clicked ONCE to
flare them out.. both sides..
ONLY did this on ONE
frame. After I flared the nostrils out.. I used the Sharpen
brush the same SIZE as the warp brush

to sharpen his nose.. When you use the warp
brush on something..
it makes it blurry...fixed it by using the sharpen brush.
