Hey, it’s Clayton Jenkins, welcome to yet another Photoshop tutorial as you see today I am broadcasting in sure HD, and I’ve decided to demonstrate to you guys how to make a cool and crispy advertisement for beverages. I’d like to think this is alcoholic but since I don’t drink alcohol, we’ll call it Mountain Dew for our poster. Anyways, I start earlier and it took 20 minutes so today we’ll be going much quicker and I’ll be leaving out many of the things I included in the first video for the sake of time and you can go over to the origin of this and find how to complete everything as I have done before and you can see at that it bubbles coming up, curly lines and you get the idea. So, crazy great looking, proud of so let’s get started. Here you want to go to a File, New, I chose U.S. paper because I need this printed, but you can choose any size you like, I’m going to grab the Graying Tool, but you define it in the paint bucket, I’m going to make sure it’s on Radio, I’m going to change the colors to CEED12 and other color 186600, okay, and then I’m just crank up, actually send it up; let’s do this on a new layer now on the background, okay, and drag it there, give it a little bit further, the mode needs me on there off that is why I’m getting messed up, make sure your mode is on normal, there you go, okay. So that will work, maybe a little bit further out, okay, create a new layer, layer, new, name it Crazy Lines and okay, same thing but we’re going to want to change our Graying Tools to black for colors to black and white and okay, we’re going to change our gradient to the reflected gradient and our normal to different which is down here; and then you’re going to want to start strong lines like so, so yet is where the facts, that’s good, I’m going to do, undo image adjustments, saturate and then I’m going to change this to soft light, and this change will pass to be down the light to 20 or 30% so really low, little lower than that, okay, 20% fine, just lowered to get the effect of light, now I’ll just bring in the bottle. I’ll bring out the links in the side bar, let’s see here, tools, downloads, okay, so I’ll just bring in the bottle, bring this down, unlock it, drag it in, yes, whatever, cancel, no, okay; now resize it to your delight, I think this will work fine for me, I’m going to rotate it just the hair and drop it in this bottom left corner, hit OK, and then I’ll come up and drag, quit the Magic Wand Tool, refine edge, I’ve already got this settings which have worked out for me to give me a crisp edge but you just may want to play around with that until you get a nice cut like so, that looks just nice but we want to make it green because blue doesn’t work, I guess we’ve had, if we had a blue background on my work. Create a new layer, title it Green Bottle, control click on the one you imported, C as in selected, now fill the, pick on nice greens in your background somewhere, come up to the paint bucket tool and fill that area on the green bottle layer, paint up them here and change it to hue, now we have a nice green bottle. Now let’s bring in some of the leaf, you bring out leaf 1, oh no, we get it, get it, I don’t care, just drag it in, no, we’re going to work on the same thing that is leaf, except if we’re going to do, hold shift, control to make me as more areas like so, and peg the leaf, time says I won’t get that perfect but you will want to, to give it in a very clean look, a few minutes and you refine it and you made me manually controlling it will do the trick. Now I’m just kind of put the leaf here like it’s laying over my bottle and then rename this layer so that it don’t get good habit, leaf on top 1, so really name it that so we’ll remember it. Now for the wave, let’s go and drag picture of the crashing wave like so, it’s a nice wave, it was very blue, drag it in, I don’t know why it drags it to the back layer, it’s kind of annoying, apologies for my computer speed, I’m running several applications and recording in HD, I’m going to drag this up to the top layer, then we’re going to want to make it a little bit bigger, that’s too big, and now we’re going to just want to select the layer, do that by Image, then select color range, corrugate in the post tool and just select the white part of the wave, don’t select too much blue as I just did, select color range, turn the breaks on intermittent, okay, now hit control shift I, delete, come up here and delete all these pixies, drag this down here, free transform, flip horizontal and drop it in the corner like so. A lot of people like to sharpen this wave, you could even go in there with maybe like a paint tool and fix the bubbles, places that emits soften it up maybe, I don’t know, it’s up to you. A lot of people like maybe could, you know maybe soften it up and then maybe go to filter pixel it or add noise or something, filter, distort, that was nice, that on tough like there, add noise maybe not too much but something like that, it’s up to you guys but that is how you get started, look for all the useful things in the side bar cause you’ll all need them to successfully complete this tutorial, thanks for watching and please subscribe.
