Hello and welcome in making March 2009 calendar
tutorial. In this tutorial we will make a March Calendar Wallpaper
using Photoshop CS2
and some of its possibilities. March is the first month of the spring and it gives a wonderful feeling when everything just melts and the sun is shining. So this is why I've chosen this theme for my calendar.
file. Well if you have a larger monitor resolution maybe you should
create another document with other dimensions.
I've filled the background with something like yellow color.
Don't start from white background - it may change your understanding of the image.
I've created a custom brush here - but you can use any sponge brush you want.
I have a color wheel here. By the way you should study the colors well if you want to
become a master painter: color variations and balance.
I have a reference for the color wheel because I really don't remember the order of the
colors (for speed means).
Now I like it smooth that is why will apply radial blur on the drawn color wheel.
Now some effects will be good too.
Well it gave some sort of tweak.
Now create a copy of color wheel layer.
A little madness: go to the Hue saturation adjustment: drag the hue button and see how the
wheel is really spinning).
