Add plasma explosion lighting
image, place it above the brown planet
layer. Use free transform
command to rotate the lighting
image like shown below.
layer’s blend mode
then add a layer mask
. Although we did change the blend mode to screen, lighting image edge part was still remain visible. We need to get rid of those edges right? to do that, use soft round Brush tool
with 50% opacity
. Pick black as your brush color, then paint on the edge parts to hide it.
to duplicate lighting layer. Get out from layer mask by clicking lighting
. Now modify its color to purple by using Hue/Saturation
command ( press Ctrl+U
I assume you already download the cloud brush? if not then download it right now
! Once you finished download, activate Brush tool
and load the brush you just downloaded.
After that, create a new layer
on top of texture copy
layer. I call this new layer clouds
, because we’re going to draw clouds there.
Use white as brush color and make sure you already change the brush Opacity
back to 100%
. Pick one of cloud brush available now inside the brush panel, then start adding some clouds beneath the 3d text. I suggest you to use various cloud brush, so it would look more interesting.
Create another cloud layer below sun rise
layer, i simply name it cloud behind
. Continue adding more clouds in this layer using the cloud Brush
. Don’t forget to change the blend mode
, this will change the cloud looks and color, bringing the surreal feels softly.
Now it’s time for some manual lighting effects. First, we need to add a new layer on top of clouds
layer, i call it effects
layer. Start drawing a large white spot with soft edge, using soft roundBrush tool
Create a selection on half of the white spot using Rectangular Marquee tool
, then press Del
to clear the selected areas. Don’t forget to deselect (press Ctrl+D
What you have to do now is transform the half white spot, stretch it vertically to create the light effects. When you’re done with that, duplicate it several times and then adjust the position so it will look like the image below.
Congratulation! we’re done creating the 3D text Poster! now that you already learn something new, why not try to make your own version. It’s FUN!
