Things are hearty

Hello, dear visitors of the site Photoshop-Master

In this tutorial I will tell you how to make a valentine on the desktop.

Materials for the lesson:

Let’s start.
To start, create New layer (File> New) size 1280×1024 px and72 dpi. In order to make the background you need to choose a tool Rectangle(Rectangle tool (U)) and select the whole area.

Next we will paint our layer. Set the following settings:
Fill (Fill) 0%
Layer – Layer Style – Gradient Overlays (Layer – Layer Style -Gradient Overlay)

Optionsgradient (Gradient’s parameters)

You should have something like this:

In the next step, we will use the tool again. Rectangle (Rectangle (U)) to create a horizontal strip.

Parameters of this layer:
Layer – Layer Style – Gradient Overlays (Layer – Layer Style -Gradient Overlay)

Optionsgradient(Gradient’s parameters):

Using the same tool, make a thin line above the thicker line:

The parameters of this line are the same as in the previous one:

Copy this layer (Layer – create duplicate layer (Layer – Layer via Copy) and using the tool Move (Move Tool (V)) drag the bar down:

Using the tool Arbitrary Figure (Custom Shape Tool (U)) draw a heart and using the function Transform (Free Transform) or Contour transformation, make it the way you like it more:

Layer parameters (shapes):
Fill (Fill) 0%
Layer – Layer Style – Gradient Overlays (Layer – Layer Style -Gradient Overlay)

Optionsgradient(Gradient’s parameters):

Blend Options – Stroke (Blending Options – Stroke):
(Stroke type: Gradient)

Optionsgradient(Gradient’s parameters):

Applying tool Ellipse (Ellipse Tool (U)) and Pen (Pen Tool (P)) we will make a crescent-shaped light. Having made the main element an Ellipse, draw the “borders” of the flare. Using the button Alt You can add points (nodes) or delete them. Using the button CtrlYou can change the position of the “borders”:

Layer Options:
Layer – Layer Style – Gradient Overlays (Layer – Layer Style -Gradient Overlay)

Optionsgradient(Gradient’s parameters):

Next, we will create a flare in the form of a heart. To do this, use the tool. Arbitrary shape (Custom Shape Tool (U)). Change its shape with the tool Angle (Convert Point Tool).

Layer Options:
Layer – Layer Style – Gradient Overlays (Layer – Layer Style -Gradient Overlay)

Optionsgradient(Gradient’s parameters):

Here is a heart we got:

Next we will again create the “shadow” of the heart. For this operation you need tools: Arbitrary Figure(Custom Shape Tool (U)), Pen (Pen Tool (P)), Angle (Convert Point tool). Having drawn the heart with an arbitrary figure, correct the contours of the heart with the Angle tool. Use the pen to draw the contours, which will be the shadow, and Corner also correct the contours. You can also use buttons. AltandCtrl.

Layer Options:
Fill (Fill) 0%
Layer – Layer Style – Gradient Overlays (Layer – Layer Style -Gradient Overlay)

Optionsgradient(Gradient’s parameters):

Result:

Then we merge the layers with the elements of the heart. To do this, hold down the Ctrl key, click on the layers you need, then right-click, select the function “Merge layers” or “Create a new group” (Greate a new grope). Next, copy the layer / group and select the function Transformation (Free Transformation) change the size of the heart.

These are the wallpapers you have turned out:

But that is not all! We have not decorated the wallpaper yet. For this we need three types of brushes:

Ideal__s_Vector_set_3,
Straight_Grunge_Lines_Brushes_by_DieheArt, Vector_Flower_Brushes_by_Yasny_chan.

You can download the archive to the lesson.

Create a new layer (it, as in the following layers, should be placed below the layers with hearts and stripes!). We will use the first set of brushes (Ideal__s_Vector_set_3). Colour: # 6D0E12

To make the wallpaper not look so gloomy, make the settings:
Fill (Fill)35%

On the next layer, we will apply the brushes from the third set (Vector_Flower_Brushes_by_Yasny_chan). Colour: # 341d19 (do not forget about the position of the layer!)

Choose any brushes and decorate the wallpaper (the same set of brushes (Vector_Flower_Brushes_by_Yasny_chan)). You can choose brushes from other sets, but the meaning should be preserved. Here’s how this wallpaper:

In the last step we will make a layer (it will be above all other layers!). A set of brushes use the second (Straight_Grunge_Lines_Brushes_by_DieheArt ). Colour: # FDAEB2

These are the wallpapers for Valentine’s Day you have turned out! Learn, Be creative, See, Enjoy!
