Save the Planet!




Save the Planet!



In this Photoshop tutorial well be creating the composing effect including two different pictures and of course layer effects.





Start by making a new document in Photoshop, something like 500×500 pixels and fill it with a black color.

Save the Planet 01

Then create round selection with the Elliptical Marquee Tool and fill it with white color on the new layer.

Save the Planet 02

So, the next step in our composing tutorial that we need to do is finding some appropriate textures of grass and choppy ground. You can find it using Google search or feel free to use my grass texture and ground texture. Copy the grass texture onto your canvas at first. Now duplicate the it a couple of times, then combine and rotate as below.

Save the Planet 03

Now bring the second texture to the canvas.

Save the Planet 04

Go to the layer with white shape and load it selection with Select > Load Selection, then press Ctrl+Shift+I to invert the selection, then go back to each layer with texture by turns and press Delete to clear selected area. After that press Ctrl+Shift+I again. Do not remove the selection. Apply Filter > Distort > Spherize with similar settings to these for each of two texture layers:

Save the Planet 05

Your image should look as mine:

Save the Planet 06

Use the Eraser Tool to composite textures like on picture below. For the Eraser Tool set opacity up to 50% and use similar to these settings:

Save the Planet 07

Now your image should look as mine:

Save the Planet 08

Now, using the Burn Tool with moderate settings (Shadows, 30%) do a little bit of burn-work on the grass layer.

Save the Planet 09

Looks not so good now, really? Go on! Now merge two layers with texture and white round shape in one layer and duplicate with Ctrl+J two more times and hide the last copy (click on the eye, which indicates layer visibility). Go to lower layer and set fill of 0%. After that apply Inner ShadowOuter Glow and Inner Glow layer styles to this layer:

Save the Planet 10

Save the Planet 11

Save the Planet 12

Now we have something like this:

Save the Planet 13

Create a new layer and merge it with previous to get all layer styles in one layer. Then get out the Lasso Tool (Feather: 20 px) and make the selection like on a picture below:

Save the Planet 14

Use Image > Adjustments > Hue/Saturation with similar settings to these to change the glowing color:

Save the Planet 15

See the difference:

Save the Planet 16

Remove the selection with Ctrl+D. Now go back to the hidden copy of layer and make it visible again. Press Ctrl and click the Layer Thumbnail in the Layers Palette to make the selection and fill it with black color.

Save the Planet 17

Deselect image with Ctrl+D and apply Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur with the next presets:

Save the Planet 18

Now we have something like this:

Save the Planet 19

Use Edit > Free Transform to transform the shadow:

Save the Planet 20

Your result should look as mine:

Save the Planet 21

To finish off the tutorial I think we should add some text. You can do this using theHorizontal Type Tool. Write down something like ‘Save the Planet!’

Save the Planet 22

In the above image I’ve used a font called Futura Hv BT (28 pt, Crisp), which is sadly a commercial font. Feel free to try a different font such as Arial Black, or you know, buy or ‘get’ a nice font from somewhere. So, now apply the Gradient Overlay layer style to this text layer.

Save the Planet 23

See the result below:

Save the Planet 24

Well, sorry, but that’s it! Hope you enjoyed this Photoshop tutorial!

Save the Planet 25
