Hello! In this tutorial, I will show how I created the
. First, create dark sky in the background. For that, set
forecolor to dark blue and back color to black, switch to Gradient tool
change gradient type to Radial, and create gradient from bottom to top of
View full size Rainbow
To add some highlight, create new layer, and use large
soft white brush to add a spot. Then, transform it (Ctrl-T) - stretch it
Change layer blend mode to Overlay.
Next step is to create a cloud. Change forecolor to light
blue, switch to Shape tool (U), select Ellipse, switch to 'Add to shape area'
mode (2nd button in top row, so that all shapes you create are in single layer).
Then, holding Shift, add several circles, overlapping each other a bit.
Add the following layer effects: - drop shadow (black,
mode = overlay, opacity 30-40%, distance 3-4px, size 10-15px)
- inner glow
(white, overlay, size = 5-6px)
- gradient overlay (black-to-white, mode =
overlay, opacity 75%, angle 90)
- bevel and emboss (size 30px, soften 5px,
highlight white 75% screen, shadow multiply 40% blue)
- satin (black, mode =
overlay, distance 6px, size 14px, try different contours)
Our cloud is
Add another small cloud in front of bigger cloud. When
you add layer effects to smaller cloud, decrease all sizes and percents
And then, more and more clouds!
Next, we need a rainbow. We will make rainbow with
shapes, each color in one shape layer. Create new layer (behind layers with
clouds). Set forecolor to red, select ellipse shape tool (U) and make a red
circle (as always, holding Shift to preserve proportion)
