Section off the bottom area of your name - make the link a little wavy:


Ctl + H - the Feather SEleciton Box will appear:

Copy and patse your tube as a new layer over the mask layer.  This tube you'll be applying the mask to so move it into position that makes it slightly askew from your main tube layer.
Apply the mask.
Merge Group.
Change the Properties to Overlay.

Make your Text Tool active using KB Bool Lane font.
Stroke set at 1.0
Type the letter H.  It will be a bush and you want to move this behind your tube.  All pc's font sizes differ which is why I don't bother putting in a number when I write tutorials, but for this I set my font size to 60.  You may need to play with your font size.  See my tag for the approximate size you need.
Give the bush a slight Inner Bevel:

Color Pallet:
Foreground and Background: #0b0303
Stroke: 1.0
Type the letter F - see my tag for approximate size
Give it the same slight Inner Bevel you used last - 4x's.
