Hallo and welcome in making a plastic pepper project wallpaper
. So in this case we'll take Photoshop as our basic tool - create some custom brushes: maybe 1 or 2 - and use this brushes to visualize the idea and develop complete design.
So let's start by creating a document and brush creation.
Let's create a brush. As my brush rough sample I will take standard PS round soft edged brush.
So take this brush and change some of its parameters:
Will also use color dynamics - meaning that you should take care what Foreground and background color you have in our tool box.
Save the brush as a new brush preset: as see it in action.
We have these colors for Color dynamics.
So another wonderful thing that I really like is that you can change brush color modes.
So change the mode from normal to overlay and turn wet edges ON in brush settings:
And just take a look what wet edges and different color modes can do.
Change, but just a little bit: the level of the picture and do also change the colors (effects the color dynamics).
Isn't it looking like bubbles?
So I really want to apply a distorting filter and twirl (Filters > Distortion > Twirl) it is.
Zoom in and out - drop some highlights - just set both: foreground and background colors to white.
To expose plastic effect even more apply Plastic wrap filter in Filters > Artistic > Plastic wrap.
So a think this is it for the whole Graphic part.
So when you feel that all the shape is correct just flatten the image: select the side area and apply brush to it.
Paste some text:
So this is for our small plastic project. Hope you like.
