Hello, this is Clayton Jenkins with yet another Photoshop tutorial. Today I’m going to show you guys how to make some fruit, okay so you want to create a new composition, I like to choose my tool already by 1024 pixels, that’s just some gigs I want to play as one of my background, it’s probably not necessary to click on that thing, but okay, we want to create a new layer and we want to mean this one, orange, okay, and then we’ll take my, your drawing tool and draw an orange, okay, so, oh by the way the colors are, your foreground FA, 9C, 2A, and background, C8, 58, 12, but you should really mess around the colors cause you can get some nice looking colors, just don’t make them construct6ion looking, you can really just draw them white if you want it because we need our filter clouds, I want to select what we’ve drawn first, then I’m going to filter clouds and here you go, okay then you’re, we’re going to want to do a new layer and call it Core, and then we’re going to want to change everything to black light, there’s a shortcut to do this , it’s like control something key, or default, I can’t think of it right now, so obviously we can do, go to filter clouds, okay, and then, oh well if you can’t find the clouds once are you there, maybe less easy go filter in there, that’s right there, okay then we want to sponge filter, so filter artistic, I believe, yup, then I’m going to set mine to zero, 7 or 8 and 3, and okay, then let’s do in artistic wrap, so I’ve got to filter artistic plastic wrap and then 13 or so, see how gets it that nice, 15 maybe and then drop this down, okay, and then now we need to clip the core layer to the orange layer to create clipping mask, there you go, so you just right click and click create clipping mask and then we’re going to change this mode to soft light, and there’s your orange, then you want to do a new layer, and then this one peel and then clip this one to orange too, so create clipping mask, I’m going to choose a much lighter orange, so let’s all use the blur and smudge tool now to soften up some of these edges. Okay and so now I’m going to create another layer, oh geez, doing Photoshop with a mouse pad, alright, let me just, I’m going to do, it’s up to you really and then you can make it like this and it’s not looking very realistic but, I mean, for maybe for a web design it might get the job done but let’s choose a darker color here. Okay, yeah, I might do one more, just to make it, I mean, you can keep going with this to make it more realistic, see here’s some ones that a lot of people have done and you can change the color around, I’m going to let you guys be creative of this, this has taken long enough, so that is how you create an orange in Photoshop from scratch, add more wavy things, break it up, add some brush strokes as in darker colors along top here, whatever. Oh yeah, this takes to me, you know, hour or an hour or so to record and an hour or so to edit, please subscribe to make me keep making this, just takes a minute for you to hit that little button and takes me several hours to make this and I’m in college so it’s hard for me to get around in making this, I guess in the next tutorial I can be taking a bit further now with some water drops and some seeds and maybe I should finish it thanks for watching a lot. Alright, I’m doing my Photoshop tutorial on the internet, I’ll call you when I’m done, okay I’ll call you when I’m done.
