Hallo, my name is Jenya; friends call me Jeka (not a Joke) and welcome in making Photorealistic Vinyl design wallpaper
. In this tutorial I want to combine Stylish Photorealistic illustratio
n with design elements such as text, logo and color variations.
So let's get started with making a document with these dimensions.
Quite big I think and the print parameters are 300 DPI
. I recommend you to have at least 2 Gb
to work fast with such large documents.
Create a new layer and overlay it with simple liner style black to white gradient.
Tnx to layer modes in Photoshop you can create quite interesting effects. For example I've created a new layer, overlaid it with black to white gradient, only this time round and set the layer mode to Color Burn.
Now I can control certain areas, filling it with smooth gradation of black to white. You should try it.
Next step: Vinyl
I did find some final references, mostly to find out the pattern of music lines on the vinyl.
.. And this is how I recreated them in Photoshop:
Take' a rounded area, create a new layer.
Fill the area with black.
Make a smaller selection right in the center to paint some sort of graphics.
I'm using torn edge brushes for this, very abstract and fast: Basically a color tweak.
Maybe a face: you can paint there whatever you want.
Leave the selection on all the time. Paste some text there.
Next step: vinyl pattern.
I figured out how to this fast while looking once again on the vinyl.
Here are the gradient settings first. Here is the gradient itself - as you can see I'm using noise gradient.
De-saturate the layer leaving it without colors but with pattern that we need.
Lower the opacity.
It really seams painted like - I want to drop some shadows and lighting.
Here is the shadow line- where our shadow will be.
I also made a copy of vinyl pattern - so it is more intensive now.
Drop a mask on this layer.
Choose this gradient with settings below.
Use this gradient to hide the part of the pattern making it darker.
A little tweak - make a selection ( or a path ) - make work patch out of it ( or don't ) - choose type tool and type the letters on the circle.
