Hola peeps Hug


 I'm here with a tutorial gallery. If you have any doubts and stuff regarding Photoshop and the stuff I make please feel free to ask me. I'll try my best to answer.

You all know me, so making you all sit through another introduction would be nothing less than torture. LOL

So in case you want to read my intro or check out my creations here's my gallery

Recently I had a talent explosion inside me and my stuff went from crap to nice. I've learnt (more like discovered) a lot of stuff and I'm going to share some of them here. Why? Because the more you share, the more you grow. 

P.S for pms buddy huewalker.

Xoxo,

Desto.

I feel I ought to talk about this before jumping to the tut. If you're a pro at PS please feel free to skip. 

Blending

There are two types of blending out there - soft blending (soft cut) and hard blending (hard cut)

In soft blending the foreground (images of people and all that) don't have much contrast from the background. They're blended in, i.e, the boundary between the image and the background is not well defined. 
 



In hard blending, the people images stand out. The boundary is clear and defined. 



We're going to combine both these blending styles to create a simple signature.


How Do I Blend? 

Layer masks all the way!

I don't know how many of you use layers masks. In fact I started off with the eraser tool. But then I stumbled upon layer masks. They are  life savers. Period.






(^Cough, that image is from google)

So you click on that tiny button. You'll get a white rectangle next to your layer and if you want to erase any part of your image select that rectangle and pick a brush ( foreground color black color ) and paint over the areas of the image you want to erase. Basically it is the same as eraser tool but layer masks are reversible. If you want to get the original image back all you have to do  is right click on the white rectangle and select disable layer mask. 

The secret to this technique is to keep playing with the opacity of the brush. It might take some time to master this, but trust me, the end results are worth it.

Signature Tutorial


(Doing this is for the one and only Rosh LOL)

It's pretty simple and I'm explaining like everything. You do not have to follow each and every step of this tutorial. Feel free to improvise and experiment.  


Step 1: Open a 600*300 canvas.

Step 2: Fill it with a color of your choice. I'm going for #d49ba8.

Now I'm going to use two images of Shay Mitchell. I've already cut them from the background.  (You can also search google for pngs.)

Step 3: I placed the first image.


(Cough, now comes the blending)


Now I'm gonna add a layer mask. Foreground color is black (it's gonna stay the same for all the masking in this tutorial). Brush around the corners of the image. It looks like this.  


Go here if you want to see my exact mask. 


Step 4: I'm using this image of pine trees  (found it from google). 


I add it between the big image and the small, resize it a bit. I turn it into black and white (Alt+Shift+Ctrl+B). Now I place it like this. Layer Mode is color burn, opacity 55%.



Step 5: Now I'm gonna add a layer mask. Then I pick a soft round brush around 200 px. I change the opacity to 80% and paint. I paint over the edges. And also on the shoulder because it looked quite ugly.


My exact mask can be found here


Step 6: I add another image. 



Step 6: Create a new layer. Fill it with a lighter shade of the same hue. I'm using #ead9dd.


(More Blending)

Step 7: Pick a soft round brush. (200px). I paint over my layer so that her face is visible. It approximately looks like this.



My layer mask looks like this



Now we're gonna learn a cool text effect.  That's in the next post.

Motion Blur Text Effect 

I'm going to add text to the siggy I just made.

Step 1: Create  a text layer. My text is "mitchell". Font I'm using is Gladifilthefte. The size is 60 px. My color for the text is #86061d (almost the same color as her dress).

Step 2: Duplicate the text layer. Go to Filter-->Blur-->Motion Blur

Angle - 90
Distance - 50 px

 Now place the filtered text layer below the original layer. 



Step 3: Add a layer mask to the original text layer. Basically I've used a 30px brush with 92% opacity and placed some random dots. You know just play around. 


Again if you want a look at my mask.



Now if you want to make the text a bit more interesting then merge both the text layers and add a wrap. Edit - Transform - Warp- flag bend at 20.


I add my subtext - "Embrace what you were born with because it's beautiful." My font is calibri 8 px. The same color as the main text. 


That's it. Now I'm gonna add a coloring. I'm using my 2nd PSD Autumn Light at 80% opacity.

(Optional )

So basically I just do these steps for a finishing. I merge all layers together into a new layer by pressing Ctrl+Shift+Alt+E. I'm sharpening the layer. Filter - Sharpen - Smart Sharpen. My settings are shown below:


Now I set the sharpened layer to softlight with 38% opacity.

Final Product: 



That's it. If you have any doubts, go ahead and ask!

THIS PLACE IS A BOON! Approve Those techniques are HEART EYES (makes sense from a PS-er's perspective, right? LOL) and YOU, you are BRILLIANT. Went through all the tutorials and they're so well explained and all these techniques are actually quite useful. Defo going to try your tutorials sometime on my stuff.
