For my tag I altered the way I made the rectangular selection because this tube has a straight edge so I kind of adapted to that. I allowed two of the other sides of the tube to hang out and I cut the last side off to sort of make it look like she was flying out of the frame
For the drop shadow part of the tutorial, I opted for using the kang background (minus the 6 pixel border) as a fill rather than a solid color. I just mirrored the pattern and then pasted it into the selection that I created of the combined drop shadows.
For the HSB part of the tut, I altered the settings a bit to make the lumps a bit larger and to give it some more color. The size of the lumps in the tut is kinda small and I wasn't able to see it very clearly so it sort of looked like mush to me (my regular eyeglasses broke some time ago so I'm wearing a really old pair and things are a little blurry
lol). After applying the HSB, the lumps were running in a vertical direction. I got the idea to run them horizontally to sort of look like the tube was flying, so I had to rotate the shadow layer 90 degrees to the right, then apply the HSB, and then rotate the shadow back to the left
. It was a bit more work, but I think the effect is nice.
*Edit: I hadn't noticed that my lump width was less than my lump height. This is why the lumps ran vertically. Instead of all the rotating that I did, I should have used the lesser number for the height and the larger number for the width. That simple change would have given the same horizontal appearance of the HSB noise.*
And in going with the witch theme of the tag I added "tha" to the end of my name in homage to Tabitha the Witch
