Photoshop Tutorial – quick painting
In this photoshop tutorial we are going to pain a quick painting. It was done using a mere mouse. The theme of the painting is warm seasons of the year and it has a style of a child drawing done digitally in a short time – about 20 minutes.
So let’s get going.
Create a document. You won’t have to set the CMYK color gamma.
Now let’s set some background color and the mood to our picture. I’ve created a gradient here.
Here is our gradient fill.
As this is not a layer tap twice on the background to create a layer.
I would also like to warp my picture a little.
Crete a layer. 1st one.
Choose a round soft edged brush, set it to AIRBRUSH and hold a little bit on the tap. This way you can choose the diameter of the spot that you need. This will be our sun.
I would like now to apply some layer styling to our sun.
Here is our result.
Choose a sponge brush, let’s say N 14, create a new layer and make several strokes.
Something like this.
Create another layer (there will be 4 strokes layers in total).
Set the radius of the brush a little bit smaller and make some strokes.
I will also warp my strokes.
I will create a mask to my first stroke layer and make it a little blend with my background. I’ve switched off all the background layers for you to see how it will work.
Apply a normal contrast blue drop shadow to our strokes. To all strokes that are on the left.
Warp the strokes a little bit more and crate 2 copies of any stroke layer. Transform the strokes- flip them horizontally. So now we have them on the right too.
Switching back to the sun; I will apply a layer style.
And one of the left strokes needs a layer style too; a gradient overlay.
Here we have all the view to our picture.
Now I will grab my brush tool and select the LEAF brush with standard settings in Photoshop. This brush is set to scattering and etc.
Make several clicks and here we have the areas covered in real like leafs. That’s why I like Photoshop; you can make a brush out almost anything.
I will bring out the levels a little bit, and color balance my image
In the eng I will a ply plastic wrap filter, you won’t have to do it, but I like the picture with this effect.
And this is it.
Here is our Funny and sunny mood painting done in Photoshop. Hope you learned something.
