In this tutorial we will make a pack design in Adobe Photoshop.

Hallo after some time and welcome in making a pack design tutorial. I really did this after drinking a tea in a bottle - you know. So after that I really wanted to make a packing of my own. It took me less than 2 hours from scratch. I really think if I would spend about 4 or 5 I could have got supreme quality pack for a tea.

Let's go.

I really like to have an illustration for my packing. I did fount some references for Jasmine flowers. Now it's time to paint them. Paint over is for cheaters) so I'll start from scratch.

Setting background value: as the jasmine flowers are white - the background should be darker.

Beginning with a rough sketch:

Not 1 - I'd like to do several flowers. Paint each on a separate layer.

Paint the details (zoom only when it is really needed - don't fall into a digital pit)

Now we will add some colors to the flowers because in this world jasmine can be any color you want:

So set up the brush parameters about so:

Add color:

Here is my final illustration part:

Now let's make that pack design. Select n area:

And a fast gradient: 2 gradients - black and white and then orange to transparency (mode set to overlay)

I'd like to ass some yellow: you can leave it like so.

Now I took my initial - bottom - black to white gradient and a pattern brush (or floral, how you maybe call it), selected smudge tool. And smudge that gradient.

Add flowers - just copy the layers. To paint in the objects rights just from the surface lights (the color matches the background tone) on the objects.

Then comes the text part:

I think I will name the tea like lost shades or something.

To balance the compositions just copy this twirl thing.

The lower text line:

Some additions on the bottom of the pack: this area I think is for describing the product.

And this is it.

Now you know how to create a packing from scratch in about 2 hours. You can make it perfect in one work day in 8 hours: and this is very fast.
