The next lesson we'll learn to create an illustration of the nature by imitating the vector pictures.
Create for the beginning a new file: File - New
Paint it in the next shown colors, making use of the Gradient Tool
Now we should picture original, stylish mountains, applying the Pen Tool
and the commands Make Selection
, Gradient Tool
with the same colors we used for the background.
If you want to make the transition between the colors lighter and smother, then make the gradient's stretching longer.
Using the Pen Tool
and the Fill Path
option, create the front plan:
Create it on a new layer (using the corresponding icon in the Layers
window for representing a new layer) the sun with the Ellipse Tool
by holding the shift button.
Make a copy of this layer: Layer - Duplicate Layer
(ctrl+j) and blur out this copy, using Filter - Blur - Gaussian Blur
We should make the blurred zone more visible, which is why we need to copy the layer with it (ctrl+j).
Choose after that a standard brush having the leaves shape and represent the tree's corona and the falling leafage. Attention! Farther we place the leaves from the tree, the bigger brush's size we choose.
