Attitude Tutorial

You will need:

Tube - I used one of PinUpToons tubes. You need
to be a registered member of CILM to purchase the tubes,
but any tube will do.
Font - I used Showcase Gothic which came with my PSPX1.
It is a Pay For Use font, so I can't supply it. Any bulky
font will do though.
Plugin Filters:
Eyecandy 4000-Glass
Mask 174 from WeeScotLass Creations

There are a few screen shots with this tutorial so please bear with me.
