In this tutorial, we will draw an illustration of a glass of cold beer using Photoshop.
Here is this:
Materials for the lesson:
Now let’s start!
Create a new document in Photoshop with dimensions of 1200 x 1200 pixels. and with a resolution of 72 ppi.
Apply to the background layer in the layer styles. Gradient overlay (Gradient overlay). To configure, use the screenshot below.
Open the folder with the downloaded Forms (Shapes) and drag the file into the open Photoshop window. On the toolbar on the left, activate the tool. Arbitrary shape (Custom Shape Tool), open the window with the forms and at the bottom you will find the forms for creating the glass.
The largest form for the glass number one (see screenshot below) should be 350 pixels. 624px In order to enter these settings, open a window with options Geometric parameters (Geometry options) and select a setting Preset size (fixed size) In the input fields, enter the required size.
Dimensions for other parts:
# 2 – 326 * 472pix
# 3 – 196 * 455 pix
# 4 – 286 * 116 pix
# 5 – 216 * 16 pix
# 6 – 285 * 111 pix
# 7 – 405 * 272 pix
Note translator: Be sure to add in the input fields after the numerical values pix (for the English version px)
Create each shape on a new layer. All adjustment layers and layer styles will only work correctly with the above dimensions.
Make active the layer with the first large shape for the glass, while the other forms turn off. Apply the following layer styles. Gradient can download here.
Make visible the second form (the liquid inside the glass). Cut the top selection and paste it onto a new layer. (We will use this form later to create beer froth).
Apply to the second form in layer styles. Gradient overlay (Gradient overlay).
Duplicate the shape for the first time and apply these layer styles to the copy:
Now duplicate the liquid form a second time. In layer styles, customize Internal glow (Inner Glow) and Gradient overlay (Gradient Overlay).
Make a third copy of the fluid form. Apply Free transformation (Free Transformation) to the copy, and move the left and right sides to the borders of the shape of the glass.
Now clear the center of the third form. Leave this layer active and load the selection with the original liquid form. Delete the selected part.
Duplicate the form with liquid for the fourth time. Cut the larger upper part of the shape and leave the lower part as in the screenshot.
Install Fill (Fill) for layer on 0 and apply the following layer styles.
Duplicate the previous cut layer and in the layer styles apply an effect to it. Stamping (Bevel and Emboss)
Now find the cut out part of the original liquid layer and make it visible. In layer styles apply to it Gradient overlay (Gradient Overlay).
Merge the created layer with the new empty layer and make it a little lighter. Go to menu Image – Correction – Brightness / Contrast (Image> Adjustments> Brightness / Contrast) and set the brightness to +40.
Set the blending mode for this layer to Dissolution (Dissolve).
Then merge this layer with a new blank layer and reduce Opacity (Opacity) up to 70%, and also apply an effect to it Stamping (Bevel and Emboss).
Duplicate the layer and apply a filter to the bottom layer. Gaussian blur (Gaussian Blur). Settings below in the screenshots.
Create a new blank layer. Load the shape selection with liquid. Big soft Brush (Brush) draw a spot as shown below not the screenshot.
Set the blending mode for this layer to Dissolution (Dissolve) and reduce Opacity (Opacity) up to 40%.
Merge the created layer with the new blank layer and reduce Opacity (Opacity) up to 50%.
Duplicate the layer and apply a filter to the bottom layer. Gaussian blur (Gaussian Blur). You should get the same as in the screenshot.
Make the following basic form visible.
Apply the following settings to this form.
Make visible one more basic form. Apply the following settings.
On a new layer, draw a rectangle 88 pixels wide. Decrease Fill (Fill) layer on 0. Load the selection of the first large base shape, invert it and delete the parts of the rectangle that fall outside the selection boundary.
In layer styles apply Gradient overlay (Gradient Overlay).
Set the gradient opacity markers to different opacities, as shown in the screenshot.
Create a strip, and in layer styles apply Gradient overlay (Gradient Overlay).
Download the selection of the first large base form.
Create a new layer and go to the menu. Editing – Stroke (Edit> Stroke). Apply the following settings:
Erase the bottom of the stroke, leaving only the top. Apply layer styles to the rest, as shown in the screenshots below.
Make a small Ellipse shape visible at the bottom of the circle.
Apply the following layer styles to this layer.
Make visible the layer with the shape of the handle. Apply the following layer styles to it.
Create a new layer and draw spots on it, as in the screenshot below. You can do it this way. Using oval selection, create areas (you can rotate them) and draw them. Then, load the selection handle, invert it SHIFT + CTRL + I and remove areas of stains that extend beyond the handle.
Combine the stained layers into one, reduce Fill (Fill) layer on 0 and apply the following layer styles.
Now make the first copy of the handle of the glass and place it in the layers palette above the stained layer.
Apply the following layer styles to the copy.
Create a second copy of the layer with a pen, and in the layer styles, apply an effect to it Stamping (Bevel and Emboss).
To create a shadow effect, create a third copy of the pen layer and place it below the original layer. Move the shadow layer a little to the left (2-3 pixels.), Then load the selection from the very first, base large shape for the glass, invert it. SHIFT + CTRL + I and remove areas of shadow that extend beyond the boundaries.
You should get it as shown in the screenshot.
For a layer with a shadow, in layer styles apply a gradient from dark brown to transparent.
Now create a reflection of the handle on the glass. Merge all layers associated with the pen into a group. Duplicate the group and merge the copy into one layer. For a merged layer with a pen, apply a horizontal transformation in the menu Editing – Transform – Flip Horizontally (Edit> Transform> Horizontal Flip). Place this layer in the layers palette below the original pen layers.
Make active the layer with reflection and select its left part. Without removing the selection, activate the tool Move (Move Tool). Now go to the menu Editing – Free Transformation (Free Transform) and cut the selection in a horizontal direction. Again go to the menu Editing – Transforming – Perspective (Edit> Transform> Perspective) and cut the left edge of the selected area by pulling the bottom left point up slightly.
Set this layer with reflection overlay mode. Overlap (Overlay).
You should have a similar result.
Make visible with beer foam.
Apply the following layer styles to beer foam.
Duplicate the foam layer and apply layer styles to the copy, with the settings shown in the screenshots below.
Duplicate the foam layer a second time.
In layer styles apply an effect to the copy. Stamping (Bevel and Emboss).
Now make a third copy of the foam layer. Place this layer in the layers palette below all layers with foam. We use it to create a shadow. Move this layer to the left by 2 pixels. and down 1 pix. Apply to the shadow filter Gaussian blur (Gaussian Blur) with a small radius (~ 0.6).
Load the selection of the original shape with the foam and delete the selection on the layer with the shadow. Erase Eraser (Eraser Tool) extra shadow area marked in red in the screenshot.
Apply a light brown gradient to the shadow layer. Settings below.
Create a new layer, select round. Brush (Brush) approximately 18-20 pixels in size. Draw bubbles near the top contour of the beer foam. Set the settings for the brush, as in the screenshot, and use colors close to the foam shades. To select the right colors, use the tool. Pipette (Eyedropper tool).
Change a little brush settings and, on a new layer, draw bubbles with customization in layer styles. Shadow (Drop Shadow). Decrease Fill (Fill) layer up 20%.
Below settings for option Shadow (Drop Shadow) and options Inner Shadow (Inner shadow).
Create another new layer and draw the bubbles again, but without the layer styles. Make the layer translucent or set the blending mode for the layer Soft light (Soft Light).
You can add more small bubbles on the new layer with the blend mode Overlap (Overlay).
Group all the layers except the pen and foam (in other words, all the layers painted in green), copy the created group and merge it. For the combined copy, apply the correction in the menu Image – Correction – Brightness / Contrast (Image> Adjustments> Brightness / Contrast).
Then apply a filter to the copy. Gaussian blur (Gaussian Blur).
And also go to the menu Filter – Noise – Add Noise (Filter> Noise> Add Noise).
You should get about, as in the screenshot below.
Now go to the menu Filter – Distortion – Glass (Filter> Distort> Glass).
Paste the texture between the layers with the handle and the glass shapes of the glass.
Open the channel palette. Make one of the channels active (red, for example) and click the small icon at the bottom of the channels palette to load the selection.
Go back to the layers palette without removing the selection, select the layer with the blurred glass, and apply layer mask , by clicking on the corresponding icon.
You should have something like this in the screenshot. Download selection
original glass shape, invert it and remove the excess.
On the new layer, draw white drops.
Use the suggested settings for the brush.
Use the following layer styles for white drops.
To create a reflection, duplicate the group of layers with glass once again (without layers with foam and pen). Drain the group and Flip Vertically (Flip Vertical). Move the created layer down. Now duplicate the layers with the handle and them as well. Flip Vertically (Flip Vertical) and lower down, like the previous group. Leave the created layers with reflection on separate layers.
Apply Transformation – Warp (Transform – Warp) to reflect the main part of the glass, as shown in the screenshots.
Now you can merge the layers with the reflection of the main part of the glass and the handle.
Add a layer mask (Add Layer Mask) to the resulting layer and fill it with a black and white linear gradient. Download the mask selection (Ctrl + click on the mask thumbnail), invert it, make the reflection layer thumbnail active and apply the filter Gaussian blur (Gaussian Blur) to selected area with radius ~ 30. Decrease Opacity (Opacity) this layer up to 70%.
Draw a black ellipse with the tool Ellipse (Ellipse Tool).
Add a layer mask (Add Layer Mask) to the ellipse layer and also fill it with a black and white linear gradient, as shown in the screenshot.
Load the mask selection (Ctrl + click on the mask thumbnail), invert it, make the ellipse layer thumbnail active and apply a filter Gaussian blur (Gaussian Blur) to selected area with radius ~ 45. Decrease Opacity (Opacity) this layer up to 25%.
And here is the result!
