In this tutorial we will create a stylish backgrund that
It can serve as an interesting background for postcards, business cards or wallpapers.
So, create a new document of size. 1000x1000 pix. and resolution 72 ppi. Fill with black.
Make sure that the colors are set by default (by pressing the “D“, The color palette will get black – for foreground and white – background). Now create a new layer and apply it to it. Filter – Render – Clouds (Filter – Rendering – Clouds):
Now Image – Adjustments – Brightness/Contrast (Image – Correction – Brightness / Contrast), increase the contrast for the clouds:
The image should look something like this:
After that apply Filter – Noise – AddNoise (Filter – Noise – Add Noise) with these settings:
Use the tool SingleRowMarquee (Region (Horizontal line)) and make the selection the full width of the image:
Click Ctrl+T for the free transformation of the selection and transform the selection so that it fits the image:
Deselect by clicking Ctrl+D, and apply a layer style Layer – LayerStyle –GradientOverlay(Layer – Layer Style – Overlay Gradient).
Adjust the gradient to three colors. # 0e01ff– #ff0201 – #deff02
Blend Mode – Overlap; Opacity – 40%; Method – Linear; The angle is 180 degrees.
Choose a tool Eraser(Eraser) with soft edges and erase part of the image above and below, imitating a wave.
Now select another eraser from the standard Photoshop set. Spatter (Spray).
And “perforate” the layer in some places.
Great, now use Filter – Blur – MotionBlur (Filter – Blur – Blur in motion) with the following settings:
We get something like this:
We have already obtained a rather interesting effect, but we will not dwell on this. Add a few wavy lines to the image. But first we will adjust the brush, we will need it later, we will also change the color for foreground (foreground) on white.
Choose a tool Pen(Feather) Tool. Make sure that you have selected on the Pen settings panel Pass(Contours). Now draw a wavy line.
Create a new layer, then click PKM on the contour and in the drop-down menu, select StrokePath (Run the outline of the contour).
You will see a small dialog box in which you will be prompted to select a tool for stroke. Choose a brush (with the settings that we set earlier) and click OK.
Here is what we got:
Again, click the RMB on the contour and select DeletePath (Delete contour) or click Ctrl+H.
Create two more lines (arrange them so that they visually fill the entire image):
Choose a tool PolygonalLasso (Polygonal lasso) and highlight a small part of the line:
Arm the instrument Blur (blur) Strength (pressure): 50% and blur the selected part of the line. Press Ctrl+D, to deselect. Here is what we got:
Using this simple method, “blur” the lines in several places:
Now, we will need a round Brushwith soft edges and a radius of 9 px and on the new layer, we will put several points on the blurred sections of lines.
Again create a new one and name it Ellipse one, using a hard round brush or tool Ellipse (Ellipse), draw a few white circles of different diameter. Beyond that, create another layer and name it Ellipse 2, On this layer, draw a few white circles, but so that they partially overlap the circles of the previous layer.
Set opacity for layers Ellipseone andEllipse 2, equal to 20%.
Optionally, you can add more circles to fill out the entire document.
Great, now let’s merge the layers with circles and lines. Apply to the layer Layer style.
Layer – LayerStyle –GradientOverlay(Layer – Layer Style – Overlay Gradient).
Adjust the gradient: Adjust the gradient to three colors # 0e01ff– #ff0201 – #deff0
Blend Mode – Normal; Opacity – 50%; Method – Linear; The angle is 180 degrees.
The image took about the following form:
Reduce the opacity for the layer to 50%. Press Ctrl + J to create a duplicate layer. Apply to duplicate Filter – Blur – BoxBlur (Filter – Blur – Blur by frame) with the following settings.
See the difference
And finally, add a few white dots on the new layer on the line using a hard white brush with a diameter 9px. Set the opacity level 50%.
