Make an Illustration

Today we are going to do a really cool and easy to illustration tutorial in Photoshop.


Let’s begin with creating a new document and of course a new layer.



illustration

Using any marquee tool just make such selection.

The diagonal line can be not really straight.



Now grab a lasso tool and begin adding these waves. To add hold the shift key, to subtract hold the control key.


I’m doing it on a tablet so maybe for people who work with Mouse it will be a little bit harder to do.



illustration

I’m just adding these curves.



illustration



illustration

I usually save such selections. So save it.



illustration



illustration

Now create a new document leaving the selection on, and overlay the selection with ordinary color fill.



illustration



illustration

Apply some layers styles ass well.



We have standard drop shadow mode, a blue outer glow and gradient overlay.



illustration



illustration



illustration

Moreover I’ve just copied the layer 3x times and transformed each of the layers a little bit.

What
I’m doing right now I’m just doing a little bit of styling. For those
layers whish are closer to viewers eye I’m just changing a little bit
outer glow settings and color. I will make it a little bit lighter as
it gets closer to the eye.



illustration



illustration

Now I will apply Filters > Distort > Twirl filter to each of the layers, but only with different twirl angles.



Here we go, watch carefully.

And final production step.



Create a layer next to background and use a rounded gradient on it.

illustration



illustration

Fix it a little bit.



illustration

And we are done. A little bit color change.
