In this illustration I’m going to show you how to create objects using multiply layers and gradients.
Start as usual ? by creating a new document (1024×768) and a new separate layer (ctrl+alt+n).
Now use a gradient 2x times with further options:
Make a copy of the gradient layer and use some filters on it.
I?ve used Color Halftone filter with a little bit of Gaussian blur filter.
On layer set Fill/Opacity and mode:
We got this:
I’ve used a little color correction changing the color gamma of my image. I like it red.
So just create a new adjustment layer ? CHANNEL MIXER.
And here are my channel mixer options:
Now I want to use another gradient on the image ? use this one 2 times as well.
Now let’s paint a little (so create a new layer and begin) with basic brush.
Make a selection using color range + use further command and copy the selection to separate layer.
I will use my alien skin software plug in.
Erase a little bit near the eye using LOW FLOW (2-5%) Eraser.
Now write some text line and we are done here ? ENJOY.
