Pilgrim Settlement: Barrel


I've made a series of items for a Pilgrim settlement. This tutorial will show you how to make the barrel (it's there in the right corner, in front of the house). You will find the tutorials for the other items in the series here.

This tutorial is really easy, so you should be able to breeze through it quickly.

For this tutorial, you will need the following:

Paint Shop Pro. I used version 7.04 but if you are familiar with PSP, you should be able to convert the tutorial without problems. You can download the latest PSP version demo here.

My selection file. Place this in your PSP selections folder (or another location of your choice). [NOTE: If you are having trouble opening the selection, move it to the selections folder inside PSP - for some reason PSP sometimes won't recognize them in other places].

My seamless fill tile.

You may download my materials here.

Step 1. Open a new image 60 x 80, white background.

Step 2. Add a new layer. Load selection 1 (selections>load from disk - then navigate to the location where you placed the selection file).

Flood fill with color #A8A8A8. Apply an inner bevel (effects>3d effects>inner bevel) using the settings in the screenshot.


Step 3. Make the layer with your barrel selection on it active. Choose your magic wand (tolerance about 20, feather unchecked). Click the areas inside the lines (hold the shift key down to get them all).

Expand the selection by 1 (selections>modify>expand). Add a new layer and place it underneath. Flood fill with "03phfill_pracken" that you downloaded.

Apply an inner bevel using the same settings as before.

Step 4. And that's all there is to it. Delete your background layer and merge visible layers. Save as a psp file.

Your barrel is ready to use in your pilgrim settlement.
