This tutorial will be about a creating a style - a wallpaper or a graph design - you name it. So as about basic app I will use Photoshop some custom brushes and my old good Wacom G4.

So create a document about so:

Graphic Design

Fill the background with mild grey.

Graphic Design

Create a new layer and apply some gradation fill with black to transparency gradient with settings you see on the screen.

Graphic Design

Or background let's say sketch is ready. Let's draw something.

So this is my brush tip I'm going to use. Is really looks a cracker or something:

Graphic Design

I will apply massive settings to it.

Graphic Design

Color dynamics - never used it - but I think it can be very helpful in design.

Graphic Design

I'm building 3 levels of elements - meaning that on each layer will be some variation of my brush. So you must have 3 layers.

The picture you can see only 2 now: Layer 3 and Layer 4.

Graphic Design

And here you can see 3 now: the next thing I really like to do is to create some atmosphere: and the best way to do it is to use low flow - overlay or soft light - soft edged brush.

Graphic Design

Some color variations try to stay within any of the color "harmonies".

Graphic Design

I'm rotating and flipping the image to reach some parts of it with the color, like the part in the bottom (yellow.)

Now, I want to cover the image from the side with this claw" brush. It actually has no basic settings.

Graphic Design

Select the area using quick mask and black to white gradient - meaning that the upper edge of selected are will have soft edge.

Graphic Design

Apply motion blur and see the effect.

Graphic Design

So, we'll take another brush that has opacity set to pen pressure.

Graphic Design

....and apply some effects with this brush too. Try to separate each splat on different layers.

Graphic Design

We need this thing with separate layers to be able to transform these things like we want.

Graphic Design

I've did a little with this brush changing the color about 3 times so we have 2 types of brush tip colors applied to our canvas.

Flip vertically. This will be our final position. So take another brush in which scattering is turned on: apply some lines with it.

Graphic Design

Now some text work:

Graphic Design

A splat brush for the final:

Graphic Design

...... and we are done for today. Stylish graphic design is ready. Hope you learned something out of it.
