Photoshop tutorial: Cool backgrounds :D

Postby Satsuma on Thu Jul 06, 2006 6:36 pm

Well, being so very bored. I have decided to make this to take up some time.

This is my first tutorial so be nice.

I will show you how to make some pretty cool backgrounds :D

Anyway

Start



First of all open a canvas with these settings:

Image

Now, set your colours to white and black, with white on top.

Now do this on your first layer:
Image

Outcome:

Image


Now, new layer. And use brushes! Only use a brush "once". Once you've clicked one dont use it again.


Now, new layer, black brushes, and go over the white layer.

Outcome:
Image


Now get your render out, and put it on your sig so far.

Image

Now duplicate the render so it covers the WHOLE canvas. As many as it takes.

Outcome:

Image


Now merge all of the render layers into ONE layer.

And do this:

Image

Use these settings:

Image

Outcome:

Image

Now you need to make the layer overlay.

Image


Now you should have a rather sexy outcome:

Image

But it doesnt look that good yet, so we need to toy around with the colour settings.

Right click on the layer, and click blending options, and toy around until t suits you.

Image

Now you should have a sexy background!!

Image

Thanks for reading,

Sats
