In this lesson I will explain how to make a very beautiful abstraction. Every time you follow this lesson, the results will be completely different, but always very beautiful.
Step 1.Create a new document 1000? 1000 pixels with white background. It is very important for this lesson that the document has such a width and height.
Step 2. Then using Gradient tool (gradient), select a black and white linear gradient (you can use different kinds of gradient, it doesn’t matter) and set mode difference, Fill our canvas with this gradient several times.
Note: The psychedelic background can help you with this step..
Step 3.Now let’s apply the transform method to create a form of abstraction. Duplicate this layer with Ctrl + J, then flip it horizontally with Edit> Transform> Flip Horizontal (edit> transform> discard canvas horizontally) and change the layer mode to Lighten (replace light) for this layer.
Step 4.Let’s go to Layer> Merge Layers (layers> merge layers) (Ctrl + E) to merge both layers into one. After the layers are merged, duplicate the layer again. Ctrl + J. Set the layer to “light swap” on this layer, and flip it vertically using Edit> Transform> Flip Vertical (edit> transform> flip canvas vertically).
Step 5.Merge both layers in one (Ctrl + E) and duplicate the layer again (Ctrl + J). The copied layer is rotated 90 degrees clockwise Edit> Transform> Rotate 90 CW (edit> transform> 90 clockwise), change layer mode to Lighten (replacement light).
Step 6.Merge both layers in one (Ctrl + E) and duplicate the layer again (Ctrl + J). The copied layer is rotated 90 degrees counterclockwise. Edit> Transform> Rotate 90 CW (edit> transform> 90 counterclockwise), change layer mode to Lighten (replacement light). Finally, merge all layers into one.
Step 7.I would like to add color to the abstraction. Select Layer> New Fill Layer> Gradient (layers> new fill layer> gradient) and click yes. Use the same colors as in the image below, and remember to change the gradient style to radial.
Step 8.Change blending mode to Linear burn (linear dimmer) for the gradient layer.
You have completed this lesson! It looks very cool, is not it?
Creating additional abstraction options
When using this lesson many times, changing colors you can get completely different results:
