Color Nuke - Special Effects

 
Color Nuke: In this tutorial we will make a full of colors wallpaper. I gave Color nuke name to it. And one more thing: I will not give you very detailed information on this one because you won’t be able to make the exact copy of it anyway. You will probably make something else, and this is a good thing, because I never copy something from scratch. That is why only the basic moves will be given here. So let’s go.

Document Dimensions: I prefer Wide format for this one. And of course you won’t be given final image with 300dpi.

I will start from background. Basic operations here: just a gray to white gradient and a little bit of brush erasing with my flat dot brush.

Now this is a part of preproduction so no cool effects here.

Next thing I’d like to do here is to create some brush tips.

Maybe a couple of effects on the brushes will make the brush look more waves like. I will use twirl effect on one of my brushes.

So let’s see what our brush can really do. I will be using Wacom tablet for several next moves, so if you have no tablet you will probably not get the result like I did. Here are my brush settings (for tablet users).

As
  
you have noticed I’ve also set Color dynamics to my brush on, so here are the colors on my brush.

You have to set foreground and background too.

So here are my first brush strokes with these settings that I really like.

Changing the foreground a little bit:

More and more: with a little bit color changes.

Now I will make something with background. I don’t really like that background we’ve made in the very beginning. So I will create a new layer now and fill it with very colorful rounded gradient.

.. And this is the end of our tutorial. I really enjoyed this one because I found the colors I really like. Don’t think that the shape is perfect, but still I like it too. I just hope you get the idea of this tutorial…. And I mean the idea but not the exact stage process. I hope the people who know what is going on here and which are working in the industry learned something interesting: color variations, PS brush possibilities...etc.

The rest of you who think that the design is all about “cool” 3d like bevel or glow like effects without any shape and color theory study (for example) ….. Well, so be it.

So thanks for all the people who support me. Thanks to all of you, who know or learning to control the edge between design and art (in such cases).

For the rest of you Numbs - you just won't make it! So just practice to control the angles on the drop shadow or bevel and emboss layer styles settings.

Nothing to brag about.. but hey it will do some good if you like some abstract forms of graphical design but overall pretty simple maybe (would do better if you had some darker color spectrum!)

Amazing result, but if you execute a tutorial like that, better keep it for yourself. Anyone, who can follow this tutorial, could make a design like that without it anyway. And sorry, but I think your comments were a bit rude too. No offense, keep up the good work, but for pete's sake, don't ever bother sharing your work on a level like that again. Thanks

Fantastic. I'm trying to learn Photoshop at the moment and it's always difficult to figure out how to do things that may be simple to a professional user. This tutorial has lifted the fog surrounding many techniques for me. Thanks a bunch.

It looks awesome, but as a beginner it was way to confusing, don't get me wrong i understood bout half of it (in the beginning) but after that i completely dint understand anything : P. i especially clicked on this cuz i like that kind of art work but in the end i didn't learn much. So i will give the same advice another user did. please don't ever share a tutorial again because that was disappointing.

this is a horrible excuse for a tutorial. It's like you just took a bunch of screen shots and made a few random comments about them. Very disappointing, and you should take some tutorials on making tutorials before you write another one!

It looks fantastic in the end and I don't get these people terming this as 'lousy' and whatnot.I am a design student and this kind of authentic looking graphic art is much prefered by design clients over the same old mundane looking space/3d/bevel graphics.In my humble opinion this would look fantastic in print, the generic '3d' space-agey effects just don't compare

great tutorial. color theory is a key component to any good design, just as typography is. I've always had a somewhat rough time with brushes, but this is rather inspiring. tihs is a great tutorial because it isn't a walkthrough like the other commenters seem to want, it teaches you a concept or idea as you put it, not how to make a metal tree frog on a leaf or something.

A good final image, but terrible as a tutorial. Your comment at the end: "I hope the people who know what is going on here" demonstrates your own acknowledgement of the inability to follow this 'tutorial' and your comments overall come across as very derogatory and patronising. In future, you should comment for practically all of your screenshots, not one comment for every 6 screenshots, and be encouraging, clear, concise and enthusiastic. Like I said, good image, but not a very instructive or informative tutorial, try improving your communication skills for the next one.

I like what you did with the image and I respect your work, but as a tutorial it wasn't good at all. I understand what you tried to do here but there is people who really need and want an explanation step by step because they are willing to learn. And your final comment it was a little bit rude, use your tutorials as a space for teaching not personal opinions if you want to express yoursefl create a blog. As I said, I really like your work and maybe if you are willing to teach something like it is supposed to be next time I'll be looking forward your next tutorial.
