In this tutorial we will create bitten letters in the form of ice cream using a couple of textures and layer styles.
Create a new document in Photoshop (Ctrl + N) with the following parameters:
Choose a tool Gradient ( Gradient Tool) (G): # 591d00 – # 2d0e00, radial. Draw a gradient from the center of the canvas to one of the corners:
Create a new layer (Ctrl + Shift + Alt + N), select the tool Brush The (Brush Tool) (B) is 1242 pixels and draw a large spot in the center of the canvas with the color # fea800.
Set the layer blend mode with a large spot to Lightening (Screen) and reduce the opacity to 20%.
Insert the texture “Bokeh” in our document through the menu File > Post (File> Place).
Add a mask to the Bokeh layer. Hold Alt, click on her thumbnail so that it appears on the canvas. Choose a tool Gradient ( Gradient Tool) (G) and fill the mask as shown below.
Set the layer blending mode with Bokeh to Linearclarifier (Linear Dodge).
Create a correction layer for the bokeh effect Colortone/Saturation (Hue / Saturation):
Right-click on the adjustment layer and select Create clipping mask (Create Clipping Mask).
Create a new layer and fill the bottom of the canvas with the color # 612200 using the gradient tool.
Set the blending mode of this fill to Softshine (Soft Light) and reduce the opacity to 45%.
Choose a tool Horizontaltext (Horizontal Type Tool) (T), install the font “VAL” and give it a size of 250pt. Write “ICE CREAM” in color # 5b1e00.
Double-click on the text layer to open the styles window. Apply the following styles:
Internalshadow (Inner Shadow): Mode – Multiplication, Color – # 000000.
Internalglow (Outer Glow): Mode – Brightening, Color – # 612200.
Stamping (Bevel Emboss): Style – Inner bevel, Method – Smooth, Backlight Mode – Lightening, Color – # fb9838, Shadow Mode – Multiplication, Color – # 2b0c03.
Add a mask to the text layer. Select a hard brush with a size of 24 pixels and erase some parts of the letters to show that they have been bitten off.
Create a new layer and tool gradient fill the top of the canvas with the color # f8941d.
Create clippingmask (Ctrl + Alt + G).
Set the blending mode Replacementbright (Lighten) and reduce the opacity to 32%.
Create a copy of the text layer (Ctrl + J) and drop it under the original. Paint over the copy mask as shown below.
Paste the texture for the ice cream in our document and place it between the two text layers.
Create clippingmask (Ctrl + Alt + G).
Select the layers shown in the screenshot. Make copies of them and convert them into a smart object. Right-click on one of the selected copies and select Transformatsmart–an object (Convert to Smart Object).
Activate mode Free transform (Ctrl + T), right-click and select Flipbyvertical (Flip Vertical). Then right-click on the canvas again and select the mode. Perspective (Perspective). Change the perspective of the reflection.
Place the reflection under the text layers and add a mask. Fill it with a gradient as shown below.
Create a new layer above the reflection and use a soft gray brush to draw a shadow under the letters.
Set the blending mode of the layer with shadows from letters to Multiplication (Multiply) and reduce the opacity to 40%.
Create a new layer and copy the styles onto it from the first text layer. Small brush broken pieces of chocolate.
Transform some pieces of chocolate into a smart object. Apply a filter to them. Radial blur (Filter> Blur> Radial Blur) (Filter> Blur> Radial Blur).
Create a new layer and repeat step 26.
Convert the layer to a smart object and apply a filter to it. Gaussian blur (Filter> Blur> Gaussian Blur) (Filter> Blur> Gaussian Blur).
With the help of a mask, I decided to remove a few pieces of chocolate, as they turned out too much.
Create a copy of the chocolate layer to which the Radial Blur filter has been applied. Remove the filter and change the layer as shown below.
Apply a filter to this layer in the corner. Gaussian blur (Gaussian Blur).
On the new layer is small brush With the color # f7941d draw small drops.
Apply style to this layer. Stamping (Bevel Emboss):
AND Circuit (Contour):
On a new layer with a larger brush, draw more drops. Apply the styles from the previous step to this layer.
Convert all the drops into a smart object and apply a filter to it. Gaussian blur (Gaussian Blur).
Next, apply the filter Radial blur (Radial Blur).
Create a new layer and a big soft brush color # e58a1d draw a few spots. Then choose a yellow color and draw smaller spots on top of the first.
Set the blending mode to Replacementbright (Lighten) and reduce the opacity to 12%.
Create an adjustment layer Brightness/Contrast (Brightness / Contrast):
Create a new layer and fill it with a radial gradient:
Set the blending mode to Overlap (Overlay) and reduce the opacity to 14%.
