Creation of textured object with lighting
Today the topic of our discussion will be a creation of textured object with lighting. A mere marble ball – to draw this by hand is harder then it seems. You should know how the light effects rounded objects.
So let’s begin.
CTRL+N – create new document.
Use a gradient on it background – black to white – Rounded.
Now another gradient to set the color – I chose this one (new layer).
Layer position and settings:
Now to the object, use the Ellipse Tool (U) – create perfect cycle holding the SHIFT key.
Now make the selection of the path (Alt – click on path in the PATH BOX – [Layer – Channels – PATH]), when the area is selected use a rounded gradient and fill the selection/path + copy the selection to a separate layer.
When this operation is done make a round selection and transform it like this – it will be the lighten area.
Do further command:
and fill the selection with this kind of color – not completely white.
Then make another and smaller selection and do the same – transform and further it:
Fill it with color – this will be light hot spot point.
Now make a copy of our object and use a texture on it.
I’m using Alien Skin Eye Candy 5 ? Plug-in for Photoshop – RECOMMEND!
done ! – now use liquefy filter to make the image more real.
Use BLOAT Tool (in the liquefy ) to bump the texture. Current layer position:
Use some layer styles to LAYER 2:
Paint a little bit and singularize the light and bottom lighting. Use the brush soft as possible.
And this is it some final touches.
The illustration is done!
