Blue dancing making process
The best day for me is when I can draw directly on paper, but when this time feels like a luxury, digital can quench my thirst for painting to some extent. So I'm grateful for a drawing tablet or a helpful tool like Photoshop Illustrator that makes digital art possible. In particular, when an image comes to my mind, I feel that my life has been enriched by developing tools that help me create a vivid screen right away. Maybe it's because I studied medical informatics and researched and planned in that field, so I'm kind of favorable to these applied tools and technologies. In other words, it never sticks to analog alone.
Today, I would like to show you how digitally converting my inspiration from seeing a hydrangea is as beautiful and pure as the child's heart. I carefully dipped the hydrangea that the child brought with me. Hydrangea looks more vivid on clear water.
Moreover, it seems as if the blue hydrangeas blue petals are transformed into butterflies and then flaps around as if they were about to take off. For a moment, these images scattered like a fractal image and converted into a single picture. To capture that image, I arranged the hydrangeas below, as shown below.
Next, use Smudge Tool to arrange the borders of the petals so that the connected pieces connect naturally.
Then, the petals that look like butterflies of a hydrangea are glued on top of the created image one by one with the lasso tool.
When pasting flower petals that have become butterflies, you need to use the left/right up/down rotation in Photoshop to match the symmetry. As a shortcut, if you see the selected area while pressing Command +T together, right-click and press "Rotate 180" in the menu that appears to adjust the position.
How to change only background color in Photoshop.
After drawing an orange rose recently, I am working on digitizing this painting. Physically drawing pictures gives me great pleasure, but digitizing them later is also a meaningful experience. Because I can reinterpret the concept from various angles, I can see that the picture changes without physical modification. Of course, since I work on my drawings, I have the advantage of being able to change them digitally without any copyright issues freely. Today I want to show you how to adjust the background color and mood of the background, leaving only the most fundamental objects. It's very simple. Those who are new to Photoshop or who want to change their drawings to a different atmosphere would be good to see.
First of all, you need to load the picture file you want to change in Photoshop, and I opened the orange rose that I recently worked on. Then, take out the magic wand tool from the left toolbar and select the background.
When using this magic wand for the first time, it is difficult to capture the desired object well at once. It is normal for partial partial selection as shown below.
In this case, if you click the background again while holding down the shift key, only the entire background is selected as shown below.
In that state, go to Image ---> Adjustments--> Hue/Saturation.
I made changes by setting the mode values as follows.
And check the results.
You can also apply various textures by selecting the filter gallery from the menu bar above.
Some works become series when working on paintings. For example, a rose that I've been drawing recently for a painted flower store project is growing, and one day it will become a large painted flower shop. When I think of warehousing these tasks while doing all the step-by-step tasks, the fatigue piled up will disappear, and I will be happy all day long. So, today, I want to show the step-by-step growth by dividing these works into one category, so I will make a banner to introduce the results on a project basis.
First, open a new Photoshop document 300 pixels wide and 250 pixels high. The size of a standard banner ad. Since the banner is only used online, you can keep the resolution at 72.
Add one more layer.
Load the image you want to use and paste it on a new layer.
Use the Rounded Rectangle Tool (U) to create a button near the bottom of the ad.
Add a mask as shown below to highlight the new shape layer in the Layers panel.
Select the drop-down menu and choose Bevel and Emboss. Set the style to 50% for Inner Bevel and Depth.
Add a new layer to the file and use the Type Tool (T) to create a button "Buy painted flowers!.
Then create another layer and use the Type tool again to create the basic message for the banner.
Go to the window timeline to create the animation.
Now let's create a simple animation to make the banner a reality. With the first animation frame selected, toggle the button layer and both text layers invisible.
Create a new frame in the Animation panel. Redisplay the default message layer in banner ads. Move the text up so that only the last line is visible. In the Layers panel, set the opacity of this layer to 40%.
Create a third frame and move the text further down so that most or all of the text is visible and increase the layer opacity to 70%.
Create a new frame and move the messaging text to its final batch. Increase the opacity to 100%.
Create a fifth frame and display the button and button text layers. Each frame will have “0 seconds” displayed below the thumbnail. Use the drop-down menu to set Frames 0.5 sec. Click the “play” icon in the animation panel and you will see the banner ad in action and you can adjust the timing if necessary.
Create another layer to give the button a twinkle effect. And make the background button of the text invisible, leaving only the text
Create the 7th action flame layer, select the layer with the button and text together.
To complete your banner ad, go to File > Save for Web & Devices. Select GIF as the file type from the second drop-down menu at the top and click Save.
Below is the completed GIF file. I hope you all start a successful business by creating your own awesome advertising banners.
How to fill empty space in Photoshop
Yesterday, I took out the running horse in the picture and made it run.
Go to previous post : moving object with Puppet warp function in Photoshop.
I believe you must have already checked the running horse and moved the objects in other pictures.
But yesterday's horse runs on empty space. In order for the horse in the picture to run better, you need a background in the picture. As you can see from the previous post, there is a hole in the picture as shown below because the horse was pulled out using the lasso tool.
Fill in this hole naturally so that the horse can run happily on this background. Today I want to show you this work.
First, you can click the Lasso tool and draw the outline on the object like below.
Then go to the edit --> fill menu.
In the new window that appears, check if the content part is set to Content-Aware and click OK.
Below is a background filled with holes. When the hole is filled to a certain degree rough, make corrections as shown on the right.
Add some background to the running horse you learned in the previous post.
Then use the timeline function to create a running horse GIF file.
Previous post: Making a moving GIF
Below is an image of a running horse GIF perfectly blended with the background.
I hope you can create more wonderful scenes.
How to make a moving glow effect in Photoshop.
As explained in the previous post above, I explained how to create a light beam in the picture and created the following two files.
Today, I'm going to show you how to create an animated gif file by adding one more file below.
The four files above can be downloaded by clicking the download button below.
First, go to the File ---> Scripts ---> Load Files into Stack as shown below.
Then, a window like the one below appears, click Browse to select all the files to create a moving file, and then click the O.K button.
You can see all the imported files in the Layers panel window as shown in the screen below.
After checking that all files are on one layer, if you move to the window timeline, the timeline window as shown below appears in the middle or at the bottom.
When the timeline selection window appears, you will see a dropbox with two selection options. From there, click Create Frame Animation.
The thing to note here is that you have to double-click the mouse cursor over the text of the Create Frame Animation to move to the execution window where the timeline is created.
If you double-click, the following window will appear. Click the red add frame button 4 times to create 4 frames.
When you press the 2nd frame, as shown below, turn on the eyes of only the layer corresponding to number 2 and turn off the eyes of the other layers.
When you press the 3nd frame, as shown below, turn on the eyes of only the layer corresponding to number 3 and turn off the eyes of the other layers.
When you press the 4nd frame, as shown below, turn on the eyes of only the layer corresponding to number 4 and turn off the eyes of the other layers.
And then you go back to 1 frame and then , turn on the eyes of only the layer corresponding to number 1 and turn off the eyes of the other layers.
Then press the play button in the red area below to confirm the action.
The result screen looks like the one below, it's like the lights of a club.
I'll try to slow down the glittering speed to match the mood of the picture. Click the button to adjust the time as shown below to change it to 0.5 seconds.
Then, the resulting file is saved in gif format. Below is the finished file.
This effect makes it easy to create moving banners as well. I hope you all moved by changing the dark picture you all have.
