In this tutorial, we will draw two versions of wallpaper on the desktop from one blank.
This does not mean that there can be only two options …)))
It is drawn simply, but it turns out interesting!
So, create a new document (I did: 1024x768pix).
Transfer the background layer to the normal state (for example, double-click the LMB and the OK button in the opened window) or add a New one and fill it with any color. Now, for this layer create a Style – Gradient (Layer-Layer Style-Gradient Overly).
Next we will work with the Pen tool. (Pen).
With this tool we will draw thin curved blades of grass.
We put the first point Pen at the base of blades of grass.
So, the action plan: to start, create several contour options (save contours better – double-click the contour in the Contours palette, you can assign a name to it), then draw lines from the contours, copy them, transform and distribute them throughout the document.
To create the first blade of grass, I used a hard brush 9pix with the following settings: in a group of properties Shape Dynamics (Dynamics of the form – Brushes palette) set the value Fade – damping 10,000.. Depending on the length of the contour, it is necessary to change the attenuation value (the longer, the greater the value). Colour # 2a5e57.
Now we draw more contours and turn them into blades of grass.
In the following cases, I reduced the parameter values Fade 800, 600, 500 … Choose these values yourself, as I said, it all depends on the length of the contour.
Now, distribute the grass over the entire area. We need to create the foreground and background of the image. Therefore, it is more convenient to combine the foreground weed into a group (Ctrl +G), and the grass at the back merge into one layer (Ctrl +E).
How do we do it? Copy the original blades of grass and transform to your taste (Edit-Transform- …).
See screenshot: one, 2 – distribute, 3– correctable four – add background. As mentioned above, I combined the background grass in a single layer and set the blending mode for it. Multiply (Multiplication) with Opacity (Opacity) 20%
This is the basis – Stocking, with which you can make different versions of wallpaper – as fantasy tells you.
Within this lesson, I offer two options.
Open the file “one“Attached to the lesson. Reduce it to the desired size (Image-Image Size …) and paste into the working paper. Correct with Transformation (Edit-Free Transform …), if needed.
Copy the layer one, and for one copy set the overlay mode Overlay (Overlap) with Opacity (Opacity) 70%, and for the other – Screen (Lightening), 20%
In addition, I made a copy of the grass background. Applied a Gaussian blur to a copy of the layer (Gaussian Blur) with value 3-4pix. And increased the Opacity (Opacity) before thirty%
Add Shadow Layer Style (Layer-Layer Style-Drop Shadow) to each blade of foreground.
It is more convenient to create a Style on one layer and copy it (hold the RMB and select Withpy Layer Style), paste on the layers with the remaining blades of grass (being on the layer without Shadow, again PKM – Paste Layer Style).
And I added rays of light.
To begin, we set Brush yellow dots in one line on the New layer.
Then, using Transformation (Edit-Free Transform …) stretch the layer with dots.
And apply a Gaussian blur filter (Gaussian Blur) about 15pix.
Change the blending mode to Screen (Lightening) Opacity (Opacity) – 60%
In which place to place this layer, see for yourself: either on top of the others, or between the foreground and background of the grass.
Let’s add some space to the space.
Add two new layers. On one brush draw a strip at the top of the document, color # e3fcd0, and on the second we will make a strip # 0e311a at the bottom of the document. And change the layer blending mode to Soft Light (Soft light). Opacity (Opacity) for a layer with a light strip, I lowered to 55%
Now, with a brush Bubbles (use Photoshopmaster Site Brushes, WATER section) colors # e3fcd0 add some bubbles to our picture. Blend mode of this layer Overlay (Overlap) with Opacity (Opacity) 75%
One is ready!
Let’s try another option.
To begin, hide the visibility of new layers. – go to the original state Blanks (return the visibility of the background grass layer without blur).
Remove the Shadow Layer Styles in all the blades of foreground – except for a few pieces on the right side of the document.
Now add a texture to the background.
For this you can use the file “2, From the application to the lesson or find something interesting for yourself.
Paste into the working document (above the gradient layer) and, if necessary, using the Transformation (Edit-Free Transform …) resize the image to the size of the document.
Change the blending mode of this layer to Overlay (Overlap), Opacity (Opacity) set 90%
Create a new layer above the layer. 2. And color #onea3b35 shading the bottom and sides of the document. Blend mode is changed to Vivid light (Bright light), Opacity (Opacity) set 25%
With the tool Custom Shape Tool (shapes) draw hearts of different sizes and colors: # e8fed1, # f5a052, # c2fc84.
For convenience, merge the hearts into a single layer and apply the same Shadow Layer Style as for the blades of foreground. That is, we copy it and paste it onto a layer with hearts (being on any layer of blades of grass, press RMB and select Withpy Layer Style; then go to the hearts and again PKM – Paste Layer Style).
If convenient, copy the document and create different versions of illustrations in different documents, so as not to get confused in the layers.
Wishing you all the best,
