Step 11

Okay next step is easy, just adding text inside the red circle using the Type tool. In case you wondering, the font used here is “Bebas” and “Century Gothic”. If you feel lazy about typing, ask you friend to do the work (that’s a joke, don’t be too serious! *LOL* )


Step 12

To make the double lines below the “Street Dance” text, just type an “equal symbol” using the Type tool. Any font will work, but i choose “Bebas” in hope it will blend smoothly with other texts.


Step 13

Go to Type> Convert to Shape menu to convert the type to shape (d’oh!). With the text now working as shape, use the free transform command to adjust its width.


Step 14

Now go to Edit> Transform path> Perspective and grab one of the corner control point’s to skew the shape perceptively.


Step 15

Add another red circle by copying the first one we created before (click on the ellipse layer, then press [CTRL] [J] will do the work). Make this second circle smaller, and reduce the stroke width to 1px from both the option bar and layer style’s dialog.


Step 16

Until this step, i assume you already download all the stock images, including the 3d render pack from here.

Use the File> Place… menu to import 3d render “bumble” into the canvas. Adjust the size and position, press Enter when you’re done. This way, the 3d render stock will be treated as a smart object (meaning: whatever you do to the image, the quality will always be good because it is protected).


Step 17

Add layer style “Color Overlay” to the “bumble” layer. Pick red as color and set the blend mode to Multiply. Click OK, the bumble color now changes to red.


Step 18

Place another 3d render pack above the first one. See screenshot below to take a look of the image competition.


Step 19

Repeat the same process in step 17 for both the “Reef2” and “Octave” layer, in order to change their color to red.


Step 20

Open up the pigeon stock we got from here. We just need the left wing, so grab the Pen tool and draw paths following the wing’s shape. Make sure you select the option: Path from the option bar before start creating those paths. This is the right time to practicing your skill with Pen tool, am I right?


Step 21

When you done creating path, right click on it and choose Make Selection from the pop-up menu. Inside the Make Selection dialog, you can adjust the selection the way you need it, but i will skip it by straightly clicking OK button.


Step 22

Copy and paste the wing into our work, place it under the dancer’s layer. Use free transform command again to adjust its size and position.


Step 23

Use the same technique to change wing color to red. Add layer style “Color Overlay“, but this time pick a darker red color and change the blend mode to Vivid Light.


Step 24

Press [CTRL] [J] to duplicate the wing layer. Create new empty layer below it by [CTRL] clicking the new layer button.


Step 25

Right click the wing copy layer, choose Merge Down command form the pop up menu. This will merge the wing and empty layer below it, deleting the layer style “Color Overlay” in the process but keep the color effect intact.

I’ve always wondered how these posters were made, now I know! I really like the subtle touch of the bird’s feathers. Thank you for sharing. I’m looking forward to using some of these techniques in my own work.

Step 10 is confusing. Please elaborate


draw an ellipse shape, set the fill color to red and set the stroke width/size to 5px, pick white as stroke color (i made this with photoshop cs6)

after that, just add layer style Stroke
