Lighting effects in Photoshop CS2

 
Today we are going to create an illustration without any basic idea. It definitely is a technical illustration that takes you over certain abilities that my newly installed Photoshop CS2 has.

So let's get started.

I will now create a document and a couple of layers.

I will fill my first layer with black to white gradient. I usually do this because it helps my to define basic light source.

So here we have it.

Further on I will create a new layer between the gradient and background. This layer will be filled with pattern.

Here are my pattern settings. The pattern looks like the cage and this gives me a certain idea of the
  
illustration.

Changing the Mode of the gradient to Soft Light layer will give us a better look.

What I'm going to do is I'm going to transform the pattern layer using this kind of transformation tool that looks like meshing. You won't find this feature is Photoshop.
