How to Create an Essentially Beautiful Flyer

How to Create an Essentially Beautiful Flyer

In today’s tutorial we will be showing you how to make use of simple elements and colors in Photoshop to get an essentially beautiful outcome. People always over complicate things, that’s why we will be having a simple approach towards this large piece. We will be teaching you in a step by step manner and hopefully you can learn something new from this tutorial. Let’s get to it.

Tutorial Requirements

Stock: Model Wearing Purple Dress
Brushes: Abstract Glow Brushes by Ro-stock
Elements: Elements Pack
Textures: DSC_0042
Time: 1 Hour

Final Preview

Step 1

The first thing you have to do is decide what stock image you are going to use and what your output size for the large piece is going to be. Are you going to print it in a A3 size or are you going to only use it on the web. In our case we will be making a large enough image to use on the web and in print if necessary. Go ahead and open up Photoshop and then create a new document by going to File>New (CTRL+N) then create a document with the settings below.

Step 2

Now that you have a blank document in front of you it’s time to create your color base for the design. Go to Layer>New Fill Layer>Gradient this will bring up a gradient fill box. Now double click the gradient to setup a new gradient and set the gradient from #3c6c94 to #c0ecf8 (See below) Once you have created your gradient hit OK>OK and then you will see a nice smooth, good looking gradient as your base.

Step 3

Time to make use of the first downloaded texture, it’s called DSC_0042 I am not aware who the author of the texture is due to having the texture for quite some time now. Open up the texture and drag it into your canvas. Set the layer’s blending mode to Overlay and erase parts of the layer you don’t want. Now create a new layer Layer>New>Layer (SHIFT+CTRL+N) and use a big soft brush with the color #6b6b6b and brush over your entire canvas, then set the blending mode to Overlay. Lastly go to Layer>New Adjustment Layer>Gradient Map use the default gradient map, which is Black to White and then set the blending mode to Multiply and the Opacity to 76% This is what you should have below.

Step 4

Now it’s time to bring in our stock photograph, I have chosen to use one from iStock Photo. Open up your model picture in Photoshop and start to remove the background from around your model if you don’t know how to do it, follow This Tutorial from Media Militia. Now that you have removed the background from the models picture you can drag your model into your canvas and you should have something like this below.

Step 5

Now that you have your model in the canvas, it’s time to start working on the effects. Create a new layer and take a big black soft brush and then brush at the bottom of your canvas, just to add a darker feel at the bottom. You should have something like this below.

Step 6

In this step we will start adding lighting to the model. Create a new layer and fill it with black #000000. Now set the blending mode to Linear Dodge and select your brush tool with a soft brush of about 960px big. Now start using different colors to blend your model and lighten up the canvas. I used the following colors: Blue #005d7f | Pink #570033 & #970059 | Green #617c01 | Red #810007 I mixed those colors together and then finally used a hard small brush with White #FFFFFF to create the dots that you see on the chart below. The image you see below is the layer with colors without the blending mode.

Here you can see what the outcome is after the blending mode is set to Linear Dodge.

Step 7

You can see the piece is coming together now. In this step we will be repeating the exact same thing we did in Step 6 just with a bit different colors. Create a new layer and fill it with black #000000 now set the blending mode to Linear Dodge and grab your brush tool with a soft brush sized 700px now choose the colors that you want to use to light up the canvas. I used Pink #450627 & #32041b | Green #1a1900 you are free to use any colors that you desire though. See color placement below.

Now add in another soft pink in the top left hand corner just to balance the color in the piece.

Now make sure both your layers are set to linear dodge. You should have something like below.

Step 8

Now it’s time to add in some elements. In this case we will be adding in some butterflies, stars and cogs. I have made these elements available for download as a package Elements Pack Now you can import these elements into your canvas and then place them around how you would like them to be placed. I added in the cogs first and set some of their blending modes to overlay just to give a variety of depth.


Now I added in the stars and placed them around as I wanted, depending on the image you use, you can position them to flow with your design.

Next I added in the butterflies, I made some of them bigger than the others to also portrait depth in the piece. This is what I have so far below.

Step 9

In this step we will be adding some image adjustments. Go to Layer>New Adjustment Layer>Brightness/Contrast. Leave the brightness at 0 and make the contrast -20 now press OK to accept the changes. Now go back to Layer>New Adjustment Layer>Curves Use the RGB Channel and just curve your line out a tiny bit to darken the middle of the piece a bit. You should have something like this below.

Step 10

Now it’s time to make use of some brushes. Navigate down your layers palette and create a new layer just underneath your model layer. Now grab your brush tool and make use of Abstract Glow Brushes by Ro-stock now choose your brush from the pack and brush underneath the model layer to give it a mystical feeling. I made use of 2 different brushes in this case to make things flow well. I have something like this below.

Step 11

In our final step we will be sharpening the image. Firstly create a new layer by going to Layer>New>Layer and then go to Image>Apply Image. Now that you have a applied image go to Filter>Other>High Pass now use a radius of 10px and hit OK. Now set your blending mode to Overlay and your opacity down to 42% and you are done.

Realistic Decorated Wine Bottle Illustration

Realistic Decorated Wine Bottle Illustration

In this tutorial I will teach how create a realistic bottle illustration and some shadow and cut techniques.

final-s.jpg

Step 1

Create a new file with 700px of width and 700px of height. Now use the pen tool (shortcut “p”) to draw one side of bottle. If you don’t know how use the pen tool take a look at this link of photoshop online help When you reach the desired result now use the Direct Selection Tool (shortcut “a”) to select all point of path, hold ALT and drag the path to duplicate. Now, still using Direct Selection (Shortcut “a”) select all point of the second side, right click and select “Free Transform Path“, go to menu “Edit/Tranform Path/Flip Horizontal“. Place the flipped path on the right place to create the bottle silhouette.

photoshop-tutorial1.jpg

Step 2

Now, we need to close the silhouette. First, using the pen tool(“p”) close the top of bottle. Go to the bottom o silhuette and do the same thing but with a little curve between points. Like above:

photoshop-tutorial2.jpg

Step 3

Go to the “Paths” tab and click on fill option button at bottom of panel. After this, make sure your path layer still there on paths tab, never erase or overwrite the layer of the bottle path. Now we have the bottle, but we need some color and realistic details, in most cases this can be done using some gradient and shadow effects. To apply Gradient without lost the initial shape we use the blending options.

photoshop-tutorial3.jpg

Step 4

Go back to the layers tab and right click on the bottle layer and select “Blending Options“. Check the Gradient Overlay, define Style to Linear and Angle to 0 and double click on the Gradient field to open the Gradient Editor. Create a new custom gradient using the color #878398,#9c96b3,#413e4d,#7c7792,#878398. Like below:

photoshop-tutorial4.jpg

Step 5

Create new layer and change name to reflection. Go to the paths tab, duplicate the bottle path(right click on the path layer) and resize the points of path to reach the first image above. Fill the path with white color. Back to the layer tab, apply a gradient overlay in blending options and set the Gradient Fill with some white and gray color and define the opacity field to 60% and close the Blending Options window. Now go to the blend mode of the reflection layer and set to Soft Light and change the opacity to something like 45%:

photoshop-tutorial5.jpg

Step 6

Go back to the blending options in the bottle layer and define inner shadow like below, and create a Stroke like below:

photoshop-tutorial6.jpg

Step 7

We need a label for wine glass. Create a new rectangle with Rectangle Tool, place the rectangle layer between reflection layer and bottle layer, rename it to “label”. Go to Blending Options again and apply a dropshadow with 41% opacity, distance 0 and size of 2. Now apply a Gradient Overlay with the settings like below:

photoshop-tutorial7.jpg

Step 8

Create some texts like the title and some description to fill the space, use old style fonts, for me Trajan Pro is a good one. Add some vector shapes with old flourishe style, the result will be something like this:

photoshop-tutorial8.jpg

Step 9

Create new path with the stopper shape, fill with brown collor(#988c6c). Go to Filer/Noise/, Add Noise and set the Amount value to 5. Now it’s to other gradient, add gradient overlay in blending options windows on this layer. Define Blend Mode of Gradient Overlay to Vivid Light and set angle to 0 and create a gradient #000000 to #957c34 and back to #000000. With this step we get a good stopper like below:

photoshop-tutorial9.jpg

Step 10

Now we jump to details. Create a new layer and a simple path to reproduce a ring on that layer, fill it. Create a dropshadow with Blending Options like below and add a Gradient Overlay. Use the colors to reproduce gold material (I use these #d1c04c,#eae2aa,#a48440,#645025,#3a2e14). Look step by step below:

photoshop-tutorial10.jpg

Step 11

More details. Create duplicate the stopper path and change her size to wrap the neck, fill it with black:

photoshop-tutorial11.jpg

Step 12

We almost finish. To create a coll background select #063e41 color and fill a background layer of document. Go to Filter/Render/Lighting Effects and select Omni Light Type.

photoshop-tutorial12.jpg

Step 13

Now we need a realistic shadow. Duplicate the bottle layer, remove all effects(right click on layer “Clear Effects“), go to Edit/Transform/Wrap menu or hold CTRL on the edge o shape and resize it to reach this result:

photoshop-tutorial13.jpg

Step 14

Go to Image/Adjustments/Hue Saturation menu or press CTRL+U on windows. Change the lightness to -100. Go to Filter/Blur/Gaussian Blur menu and set it to 8. Change the opacity of layer to 34%:

photoshop-tutorial14.jpg

Step 15

Add some flowers. Open this images on photoshop, go to Channels tab select the most contrasted channel, duplicate him, increase the constrast of duplicated channel layer in Image/Adjusments/Brightness/Contrast and Image/Adjusments/Curve, use Quick Selection Tool(“w”) to create a fast selection of areas outside the flower. Delete the duplicated channel, back to the RGB channel, right click on the selection and select inverse. Cut and paste the flower on the bottle document. Repeate the same step to cut other flower. Othe tip is increase the brightness of flower (Image/Adjustments/Curves) to made things more white. Define some dropshadow in Blending options for eache flower:

photoshop-tutorial15.jpg

Step 16

Use some vectors like this and change the blend mode of vector layer to Luminosity and opacity to 50%. We also add an reflection effect in the bottle(we can teach how create reflection in some other tutorial):

photoshop-tutorial16.jpg

Conclusion

With this tutorial you learned how create a realistic bottle, shadows and how work with Blend Mode, Gradients. With some easy steps you can reach a good effect.

Dissolution – 25 Years of Photoshop

Dissolution – 25 Years of Photoshop

This digital painting was created by Germany creative director or illustrator Martin Grohs. Actually it is a wallpaper, titled as “Dissolution”. It portrays one vision, one space-lady with melting space suit disappearing before a hot exploding plant. These all reflect the theme “what you take from the earth, you must give back, that is nature’s way.”

This wallpaper was made to celebrate 25 years of photoshop. The greatness of photoshop is it can present imagination to us or we can just have imaginations. While one fantastic uniqueness of this wallpaper is that it is dynamic, which shows audience a gradual progress of dissolution. Space-lady’s changing space suit, the color-changing space and the plant embody the theme of dissolution, presenting a coming explosion. And at the end of the process ,the word “dissolution” perfectly appears on the screen. This is really a piece of super-inspiring work.
