Learning to draw a bottle in Photoshop

Look at the final image that comes after this lesson.

Step 1. Create a new document and go View> Show> Grid (View – Show – Grid). Then using the tool Pen Tool (Pen) Draw a half bottle. Take time to this step to draw a good shape. If necessary, use a bottle cap. See picture below.

Step 2. Create a new layer, name the “Bottle Shape”. Go to the contour palette and click on the icon Load path as selection (Load outline as selection) at the bottom of the layers palette. Fill the selection with black. Clean the edges of the bottle with a tool if necessary. Lasso Tool (Lasso). Duplicate the layer and go Edit> Transform> Flip Horizontal (Editing – Transforming – Flip Horizontally). Move a copy of the layer to create a whole bottle. Merge the two layers together.

Step 3. Apply the following layer style to the current layer Gradient Overlay (Gradient Overlay): gradient (gradient) from # 110202 to black. See picture below.
The bottle will be filled with black color, but a dark red color in the middle of the gradient will give it a small amount.

Step 4. Choose a tool Rounded Rectangle Tool (Rectangle with rounded corners), set Radius (Radius) 30px and create a large white rectangle on the left side of the bottle. Then a red rectangle on the right and an oval above it and three more figures, as shown in the figure below. Rasterize each layer Layer> Rasterize> Layer (Layer – Rasterize – Layer). Merge all layers.

Step 5. Navigate Filter> Blur> Gaussian Blur (Filter – Blur – Gaussian Blur) and set the following parameters. Install Opacity (Transparency) 40%.

Step 6. Create a new layer “Label 1”. Tool Rectangular Marquee Tool (Rectangular selection) create a selection across the width of the entire bottle. Fill the selection with white.
Apply a Gradient Overlay to create a round bottle effect. The author used the following colors: medium gray – light gray – transparent – transparent – light gray – medium gray, 0%, 10%, 25%, 75%, 90%, 100%.

Step 7. Create a new layer “Label 2”, make a rectangular selection under the white label. Fill it with black and apply a Gradient Overlay, gradient: from black to dark gray to black.

Step 8. Create a new layer “Label 3”, create a strip of 2px over the black stripe and fill it with the following gradient. Then make a copy of the current layer and place it under the black stripe.

Step 9. Create a new layer “Label 4”, create another selection under the bottom gold stripe and fill with dark blue. Apply style to layer Gradient overlay, gradient: black – dark blue – black.

Step 10. Finally, copy one of the golden lines and place it under the dark blue stripe. Create another 1px strip, place it under the bottom golden strip and apply Gradient overlay, gradient: light gray – white – light gray. Set the opacity to 65%.

Step 11. Choose a tool Horizontal Type Tool (Horizontal text), create a text box across the label. Then apply the center text alignment. For the inscription on the label, the author used different fonts, sizes (see the picture below). You can choose your option.

Step 12. Find a suitable image for the label and paste it below the text layer. The author used a photo of grapes. Then discolor the image. Image> Adjustments> Desaturate (Image – Correction – Discolor). Cut the top of the picture.

Step 13. Now cut those parts of the picture that extend beyond the edges of the bottle. So you should get a picture only on the bottle. Go to Image> Adjustments> Brightness / Contrast (Image – Correction – Brightness / Contrast), set Brightness (Brightness) +90, Contrast (Contrast) +50.
Using the Eraser Tool (Eraser) with soft edges, erase the bottom of the image to create the effect of a smooth transition of the image to the label. Place the layer with grapes above the “Label 1” layer and merge the two layers together. Thus, the gradient: gray – transparent – gray will also be applied to the image.

Step 14. Now add golden text to the label. Navigate Edit> Transform> Rotate (Edit – Transform – Rotate) and rotate your text counterclockwise. Then create a new layer and tool Pen Tool (Pen) draw a line. Apply a gradient overlay to the line and to the text.

Step 15. Create a new layer, name “Up the Bottle”. Create a rectangular selection on the neck of the bottle. The selection should extend 1px wide by bottle. Then apply the following gradient overlay.

Step 16. Select the top few pixels of the current layer and go Edit> Transform> Perspective (Editing – Transforming – Perspective). Upper perspective angles move slightly to the center.

Step 17. Let’s add some shadow. Create a new layer and name it “Gradient Line”. Create a selection under the line that has now been changed, apply gradient from transparent to # 2C281D.

Step 18. Create a new “Blick” layer. Select the upper part of the label (above the “Gradient Line” layer) with the tool Lasso Tool (Lasso). Then fill the selection with white. Set the Blending Mode to Overlay (Overlap), transparency 40%.

Step 19. With the tool Marquee Tool (Rectangular selection) select the upper part of the layer “Top of the bottle”. Copy / paste on the new layer “Top of Bottle 2” and execute Edit> Transform> Flip Vertical (Edit – Transform – Flip Vertically). Lift the layer up so that it docks with the bottom layer “Top of the Bottle”. Then copy the style of the Overlay gradient layer “Top of the bottle” and paste into the layer “Top of the bottle 2”.
Create a new “Shadow” layer. On the right side, add a shadow using the tools. Lasso and Gradient (gradient: from black to transparent).

Step 20. Duplicate the “Top of Bottle 2” layer, place it on top of all layers and name it “Top of Bottle 3”. Navigate Edit> Transform> Flip Vertical (Editing – Transforming – Flip Vertically), align with the top label. Apply style Drop shadow (Shadow) to the current layer.
Tool Lasso select this area, create a new layer “Light”. Fill the selection with white. Set the Blend Mode to Overlap, 40% transparency.

Step 21 Create a new 3px by 12px document. Create a new layer and fill the right row of pixels with black color, medium – white, and leave the rest blank. Next, hide the background layer and go Edit> Define Pattern (Edit – Define the pattern), save the pattern as “wine stripes”.
Now go back to the main document, create a new “Stripes” layer. Use the Rectangular Selection tool to create a selection above the “Top of Bottle 3” layer shape and fill it with black.
Install Fill (Fill) layer 0%. Apply style Pattern overlay (Overlapping pattern) using the saved pattern.

Step 22 Create a new layer “Top of Bottle 4” above all layers. Create a selection above your pattern, but twice the height. Fill this selection with gold. Next, copy the “Top of Bottle 1” layer style and paste it into the current layer. See picture below.

Step 23 Create a new layer and tool Rounded Rectangle (radius 6px) create a shape with color # F7EDD3 on the “Top of the bottle 4” layer. Navigate Editing – Transform – Rotate and turn slightly counterclockwise. Apply the following layer styles.
At the end, make a copy of this shape and place it above the original.

Step 24 Create a layer above all layers and name it “Cover”. Create a rounded rectangle (6px radius) and fill it with # F7EDD3. The figure should be wider than the previous ones and should cover part of the top line. Rasterize the layer and tool Rectangle selection Cut a 2 pixel strip at the bottom of this shape.

Step 25. Copy the styles of the “Top of Bottle 3” layer and paste into the “Lid” layer.

Step 26. Create a new layer “Shade Cover”. Using the tool Rectangle selection and Linear gradient (gradient: black to transparent) create shadows on the bottle cap. Set the layer opacity to 40%.

Step 27. There are a few areas that look unfinished. They should be corrected. Create a new layer. Choose a soft white brush and go around the center of the “Bottle Top” layer. Set the transparency of this layer to 40%. Transparency layer with shadows of 20%.

Step 28. It remains to remove the top of the bottle above the lid of the tool. Rectangle selection . A bottle of wine is ready!

Step 29. Hide the white background layer. Navigate Layer> Merge Visible (Layer – Merge visible). All layers merged into one. Duplicate the layer and place it under the original. Navigate Edit> Transform> Scale (Editing – Transforming – Scaling) and resize to 95% of the original and place to the left of the main bottle. Duplicate the layer and place to the right of the original. You can use the net to make the bottles look symmetrical.

Step 30. Create a nice background. Hide the layers with the bottles and create a new layer under them, name it “Gray Background”. Apply a radial gradient. See the drawing.

Step 31. Create a new layer and name it “Clouds”. Navigate Filter> Render> Clouds (Filter – Rendering – Clouds). Set the Blend Mode to Overlap, transparency 30%.

Step 32 Make the layers with the bottles visible. Merge them into one layer and make a copy of the merged layer. Run the command Editing – Transform – Flip Vertically and place a copy of the layer under the bottle. Stretch a little Edit> Transform> Distort (Editing – Transforming – Distortion). At the end, change the blending mode of the layer to Overlap, set the opacity to 30%.

Look again at the finished image.
