Here’s what happens after this lesson.
For the work we need:
Step 1. Create a new document sized 1920px at 1080px. Download Basic Texture.
Step 2. Upload an Aladdin Lamp image, place it below the main background and discolor Ctrl +Shift +U.
Step 3. Add a shadow for the lamp. Create a new layer and name it “lamp shadow”. Using the tool Ellipse Marquee Tool (Oval selection), create a selection as shown.
Step 4. Right click and select Feather (Feather) with a radius of 3px. Fill with black color.
Step 5. Move the “lamp shadow” slightly up and to the right, as shown below.
Step 6. In order to add fire from a lamp, we do the following. Create a new layer on top of all the others and name it “start stroke”. Tool Pen tool (Pen) Create a path like the image below.
Step 7. Open the brushes palette and select a brush to use it for the drawn path. See picture below.
Step 8. Select the “start stroke” layer tool Pen and RMB call the menu from which select Stroke Path (Stroke).
Step 9. Reduce the layer opacity by 10% or 20%.
Step 10. Download the fire image and open it in Photoshop. Open up Channels (Channels) and duplicate Red (Red) channel.
Step 11. Navigate Image> Adjustment> Curves (Image – Correction – Curves) and set the following values.
Step 12. Click Ctrl + click on the copy of the red channel to create a selection and go Select> Load Selection (Select – Load selection) and click OK.
Step 13. Now go back to the layers panel, just copy it and paste it into the working document. Name the layer “fire flame”.
Step 14. Click Ctrl + T, resize.
Step 15. Using the tool Lasso Tool (Lasso), create a selection around the lower flame. Click Ctrl +Shift +J thereby dividing the layer into two layers. This layer is called the “bottom flame”.
Step 16. We will now work with the “bottom flame” layer, so hide the “up flame” layer (Note: the “up flame” layer is the renamed layer from the “fire flame”).
Step 17. Duplicate the “bottom flame” layer and press Ctrl + T and make the flame smaller. Click again Ctrl + T and RMB call the menu from which select Warp (Deformation). Warp as you like.
Step 18. Now remove the unnecessary details. Using tools Lasso or Pen , select an unnecessary area. Call the layers in clear names so that you can find them later.
Step 19. Make a copy of the layer with a large flame and name it “stroke_flame_2”, resize and deform it.
Step 20. Duplicate the layer with a large flame again and name it “stroke_flame_3”, resize and deform.
Step 21 Now make the visible “up flame” layer, duplicate it and name it “stroke_flame_4”. Place it above the rest of the layers, resize and deform.
Step 22. We created the first part of the fire successfully, the “start stroke” layer (which was created earlier) is no longer needed. Hide or remove it.
Step 23 You, probably, noticed that the average flame is painted in different colors, than the others. Let’s add saturation to make it look more realistic. Navigate Image> Adjustment> Hue / Saturation (Image – Correction – Hue / Saturation), set the parameters listed below.
Step 24 Before you start creating the heart, move all the layers with the flame into the folder.
Step 25. Now we begin the work on the heart. Create a new layer and name it “heart reference”. Choose a heart shape from Custom shape tool (Arbitrary shape). Draw it and fill with white. Transparency set 10%.
Step 26. We will use the same method for the heart that was used to create the lamp. Before continuing, make sure that you change the saturation of the flame to avoid the error that we encountered in step 23.
Step 27. Duplicate the “bottom flame” layer, rename it to “heart_flame_1” and place it above the other layers. Warp the flame as shown below.
Step 28. Delete unwanted items, then go Filter> Liquify (Filter – Plastic) and instrument Warp Tool (Deformation) display as in the figure below.
Step 29. Duplicate a large flame and rename it to “heart_flame_2”, rotate, deform and remove unnecessary parts.
Step 30. Select both layers “heart_flame_1” and “heart_flame_2”, duplicate them (transfer to the “Create a new layer” icon at the bottom of the layers panel). Navigate Edit> Transform> Flip Horizontal (Editing – Transforming – Flip Horizontally). Select all the layers with the heart and merge into one.
Step 31. Navigate Filter – Plastic and using the tool Deformation, create a smoother heart shape (Note. The red dots in the figure below show where the Deformation tool was used).
Step 32 Now let’s work with the inside of the heart. To do this, you need to either find or create a light texture for the heart. Insert your image into the working paper. Layer the layer “inside heart”.
Step 33 Now you can delete the layer that was used as a heart layout.
Step 34 Select the “inside heart” layer and go Filter – Plastic. Use the Warp tool to warp the edges as shown.
Step 35 The heart is almost ready. Select the “heart_flame” and “inside heart” layers, and rotate them as shown.
Step 36 Merge the “heart_flame” and “inside heart” layers into one and name the layer “big heart”. Duplicate it and rename it to “mini heart”. Resize using transformation (Ctrl + T) and move as shown in the image below.
Step 37. Duplicate the “stroke_flame_1” layer and place it above all the layers to create a fiery trail.
Step 38 Both tracks look not entirely real, so go Filter – Plastic, set the values shown in the figure below and work the following points with the Deformation tool.
Step 39. Choose a layer with a large path that is “stroke_flame_1” and repeat step 38.
Step 40. Well, we deformed and distorted everything we needed, and now it’s time to draw. Create a new layer above the lamp layer, name it “lamp light” and go Layer> Create Clipping Mask (Layer – Create Clipping Mask)
Step 41. Apply the following settings: Size (Size): 3px, Opacity (Opacity): 30px, Flow (Push): 20%, Color (Color): # ff8a00.
Step 42 Start painting at the edges of the lamp, as shown in the figure below.
Step 43 Change the brush settings: Size: 100px, Opacity: 20%, Press: 10%.
Step 44. Create a new layer below the lamp. Call it “lamp glow”. Choose a tool Gradient Tool (Gradient) from color # ff8a00 to transparent. Draw a circle, place it vertically under the lamp, lower the transparency to 30%, place below the shadow of the lamp.
Step 45. Give a little glow behind the flame. Merge all the layers together (the layers are shown in the figure below) and name the layer “magic flame”, but before you merge the layer into one, make a copy of your document. This will provide an opportunity to individually edit the flame in the future.
Step 46 Duplicate the “magic flame” layer and rename it to “magic glow” (place it below the “magic flame” layer). Select the “magic glow” layer, go Filter> Blur> Gaussian Blur (Filter – Blur – Gaussian Blur) and set the value to 10px. Reduce the opacity by 60%.
Step 47. Create a new layer above all layers and name it “Magic Love”. Navigate Image> Apply Image (Image – External channel).
Step 48 Once you merged all the layers into one, run the command Filter> Shapern> Shapern (Note. Works on the English version of Photoshop)
That’s all! See you again!
