I’m going to lock these two together, until we center that out. I want to stick a line right underneath from yesterday and today, but I want to find kind of a tweaked out looking line. So, maybe something like this, and let me go to my brush options, shape dynamics. And something like that will work, now just increase the size to maximum and I’m going to transform that, flip it so that it’s right underneath from yesterday and today.
Transform again, I’m going to condense it down, and stretch out so it looks like a line going across. And a layer mask, and choose a normal brush, may get rid of some of this. Change the opacity to about 20. A little bevel on there, and twitch, duplicate the layer, get rid of the bevel emboss on the top, change it to either hard light or saturation, that looks pretty good. And that’s pretty cool. And actually I think I like it better just kind of as a fitted outline like that. Bring down your opacity a little bit, and that’s looking good.
And I have to put their My Space on there as well. So, I’m going to go ahead and stick that at the very bottom. And grab the bevel from here, copy layer style, bring it down to here. Paste layer style, and I’m going to put a drop shot on there as well, let’s do a little bit more spread on there, bring it out. Let’s go with a little bit lighter blue, sort of pop. Copy that, take off the effects, change it to either hard light, or overlay, or saturation. That overlay looks pretty good. I’m going to change the bevel to a cone, as well. Take off hues global light, and try to find a nice pattern for that. I’m going to do is actually just go ahead and lock them, and go to transform perspective. I’m trying to get a nice little perspective going here. Try to keep it similar to the logo. So, that’s looking pretty spiffy.
I’m going to go ahead and create a new layer. Change the color to white. And set my feather for maybe like 20, in it you want to have a white box that they can put their gigs in. So, I’m going to go ahead and bring that down. And fill it with white, and fill it with white again at a 100%. So, I thought it was supposed to be, God damn it. And change the blend mode, duplicate that. I’ll shrink that down, make it normal, and I’m just going to go ahead and bring that in. Set it for like 50%, try 60%, try 70%. And I’m going to put a bevel on it, so it doesn’t look so boring. All right, so there you go. Got a pretty decent flyer going on here. That’s going to be it for right now.
