Step 51

Switch back to illustrator, create a new document and paste the mask there.

Step 52

Trace the mask using the Trace command. Choose the Hand Drawn Sketch preset from the tracing presets. By default your trace should look like this.

img(80)

Step 53

Paste the mask trace in the main file. And place it behind the model.

img(81)

Step 54

Color is too dark, let’s apply a different color using the Layer Styles box.

img(82)

Step 55

We are going to trace yet another image. This time drag and drop the image into Illustrator. Select the image and apply Hand Drawn Sketch preset to it. When finished Take the trace into Photoshop.

Step 56

Paste in the main file.

img(84)

Place it below the model layer. Well it looks nice and organic and the background is coming alive. let’s move on!

img(85)

Step 57

Bring in the Umbrella image into the design. Place it below all the other layers. This image has a nice retro look and will complement our design.

img(86)

Step 58

I selected a portion that I want to use.

img(87)

Mask out the umbrella with the selection.

img(88)

Change the layer blend mode to Linear Light to make it more cheerful.

img(89)

Step 59

Create a new layer below the model layer and make another selection using the Lasso Tool. Fill the selection with #fe7163.

img(90)

Step 60

Draw a triangle shape with the Pen Tool.

img(91)

Step 61

Apply a 1 pixel stroke to it using the Layer Styles box.

img(92)

Reduce the Fill opacity to zero because all we need is a triangle outline.

img(93)

Step 62

Draw some random shape below the triangle. Use the Pen Tool or Lasso Tool whatever you like.

img(94)

Step 63

Ctrl + click on the triangle’s vector mask.

img(95)

Invert the selection (Ctrl + Shift + I). Hit delete. And it looks good.

img(96)

Step 64

Create another shape following the same method as above. Create a circle shape layer using the Ellipse Tool.

img(97)

Step 65

Reduce the fill opacity to zero.

img(98)

Apply stroke.

img(99)

Step 66

Make the circle a half circle by deleting one of the anchor points. Use the Direct Selection Tool to select the anchor point.

img(100)

Step 67

Create another random colored shape below the half circle. Just as before Load selection from the shape layer, invert it and deleted the excess area.

img(101)

Step 68

Once again back to Illustrator. Select the Rectangle Tool and Draw a bar. Open the Transform Palette. Menu > Window > Transform. Skew the bar by 60 degrees by entering value in the Skew field.

img(102)

Step 69

Duplicate the bar and stack them. Apply different colors to them.

img(103)

Step 70

Paste the shape in Photoshop. Place it above the model layer. Press Ctrl + T and rotate to match the angle of the stripes of the umbrella.

img(104)

Change the layer blend mode to Overlay.

img(105)

Step 71

Switch back to Illustrator. Draw a similar path using the Pencil Tool (or Pen Tool). Open up the Artistic_Ink palette. Select the path and apply a brush stroke to it.

img(106)

Step 72

Bring into Photoshop. Place it behind the model and adjust the rotation.

img(107)

Step 73

Apply Color Overlay.

img(108)

Step 74

We are heading to Illustrator for one last time. Create some swirls using the Pen Tool.

img(109)

Step 75

Once you have drawn the swirls, select each individually and apply art brush to them one at a time.

img(110)

Step 76

Draw circle with the Ellipse Tool. Apply art brush to it. Change the stroke width if it is thick.

Some good techniques I just learned here – thank you! I just wish Photoshop had some of Illustrators features so I don’t need to go back and forth. I can copy and paste the illustrator elements into Photoshop CC but the problem is to get Illustrator, you need the full Adobe Creative Cloud subscription. Most of my students can only afford the Lightroom and Photoshop plan.

Edward Dusenbury

What is the canvas size for step 1?

Photoshop Tutorials Staff

1169×1654 pixels

Although you can use any canvas size you like, it’s best to use something similar while following the tutorial.

Can we do the same in Inkscape and Gimp?

Joanna

Really covered a lot of different techniques and new shortcuts. It’s cool seeing such seemingly “random creativity” captured and explained step by step.

I also appreciated seeing vector art combining with textures in photoshop. Merges the gap for me that I have in my head.

thank you!

Allison

You should add some bookmark or like buttons!!
