This tutorial was written by me on 12th of February 2012

*Supplies*
Tube of choice - I'm using the awesome work of Arthur Crowe. You must have a license to use his work.
The tube I've used is from his new store Arthur Crowes Factory
Texture of choice. I've used texture 5 from Vix PSP
Fonts GAMECUBEN and Will&Grace
Plugins
Xero Radience. If you don't have this plugin you can get it here.

*Lets Get Started*
File - New - New Image 650x200
Make a gradient with 2 colors from your tube.
I used Foreground #000000 - Background #8c248b
Floodfill your canvas with the gradient.
Copy & paster your tube as a new layer - duplicate 4 times and position as shown
Once you have the tubes in position merge them all together.
Duplicate the tubes layer.
On the origional apply xero - radiance

Change the Blend mode to Luminance (Legacy)
On the duplicate tube layer - Adjust - Blur - Gaussizn Blur 3
Change the blend mode of the layer to Screen and lower the opacity to 60
Copy and paste Vix_Texture5 as a new layer (or whatever texture your using)
Change the blend mode to screen and lower the opacity to 24.
