Easy Fluffy Slipper
This is a very easy project and here's how I made it:
You will need a copy of Paint Shop Pro, version 8 or later.
You will need the fur preset, if you don't already have it. Unzip it and place it in your "Presets" folder, not "Preset Shapes". I've included a cloth fill in greyscale so that you can color it to your tastes. This should be placed in your "Patterns" folder.
Open a new image, add a background color, add a new raster layer and set your foreground/background colors:
Select the brush tool and Preset:
Using your brush tip, lay out a shape similar to this:
Add a new raster layer and place it under your slipper top. Reverse your foreground/background colors. Using your airbrush tool (I chose airbrush but you can use the pen tool or preset, whatever you are most comfortable with), add a shape similar to this:
I used these settings for the airbrush. Experiment to see what works better for you:
Now select the tools: Select All>Float>Contract and set number of pixels to 11
While still selected, use the "Invert" tool to select the outer edge of the sole. Choose the "Inner Bevel" tool with the following settings:
Now use the "Invert" tool again to select the inside of the sole. While selected, flood-fill with a cloth pattern and colorize to your liking. De-select.
In your layers palette, select the slipper-top layer. Select the "Drop Shadow" tool with the following settings:
Using your "Eraser" tool, carefully remove the shadow bleed on the background.
Your finished image should look something like this.
Delete the background layer, merge visible, tube it and you're done!
Create your own image using your tubed slipper. Here's one of mine:
