Turn any photo into a dot grid artwork with these Photoshop actions. You'll get great results with dots that change size. They get larger in brighter areas and smaller in darker areas. Free download available.
Erase the unnecessary areas. To do this make a marquee selection of the original "G" and "G Copy" layer (while holding the ctrl+alt key, select the box next to the layer's name) Select>Inverse, then delete while the highlight layer is still selected.
Change this layer to 'Soft Light' and add this layer style (Layer > Layer Style > Inner Shadow).
Repeat these same steps for the rest of your letters
Step 16 Cloud
Create a New layer and rename it "cloud". Place this layer beneath the letter layers. Grab your brush tool and use different sizes of circles to create the cloud. I used the color #e40480. Once finished duplicate this layer
Add these layer styles to the original layer (Layer > Layer Style > Bevel and Emboss).
This is how yours should look.
Create a new layer above the cloud layer and with a #FFFFFF soft round brush place some highlights around the cloud. Make sure the opacity on the brush is very low.
Go to your "Cloud copy" layer and place it underneath the original cloud layer and change the opacity of this layer to 27%. Also maneuver this layer a bit so that the shadow shows.
Create a new layer for the inner cloud grab a hard round brush of different sizes and create a cloud. I used the color #8cb809
Add these layer styles to this layer
Create a new layer and add some shine to this cloud layer with a small soft round brush. I used the smudge tool also to stretch out highlights
Now I will show you how to create the background. First Create a New Document
Grab your rounded rectanlge tool and make a rectangle. The color I'm using is #8cb809 Radius: 21px
Add a Stroke in the layer style panel
Make multiple duplicates of the brick. Note: Make sure to overlap the bricks so that there is no white background showing.
Create a new layer above the bricks and with a 60px #000000 soft round brush apply shadow to the bricks. Change this layer's Opacity to 27%.
Go to Edit>Define Pattern and name it bricks, click ok. Go back to your graffiti document. Create a New Layer underneath your cloud layers. Fill this layer with #FFFFFF. Change this layer Fill to 0%. Add these layer styles
