3D Burnt Letter

3D Burnt Letter. 15 min project

Once I wrote the letter to the woman Iloved. At the time when I was about to send this letter, she married to another man. I decided to burn my confession… But at the last moment I changed my mind and thought to save letter.

Here you will learn to create naturally looking burnt paper. You will know abilities of Crystallize Filter and another Photoshop shortcut…

1. Create New Document. Make a vertical rectangled selection. Fill it in light grey color. Select lower right quarter of grey rectangle and “Layer via Copy”(Ctr/Cmnd+J)

2. Apply Filter -> Pixelate -> Crystallize to a small rectangle.

3. Make a rectangular selection smaller than jagged regtangle. Feather it 10-12 points and invert selection.

4. Using Hue saturation and then Burn Tool make an illusion of burnt edges. Merge layers and apply Drop Shadow. Add coffee spots. Bend it to create effect of dimensional object. Voila tout!

3D Cucumber

3D Cucumber. 15 min project

Do you like fresh stuff? I do! That’s why I decided to open this Photoshop session from simple tutorial of creating that little green thing.

This is how cucumber.psd file will look like

 

1. Create capsule-like body shape with Rounded Rectangle Tool(U), than using transformation tools Edit -> Transform -> Warp and possibly Liquify Filter make something looks like cucumber. Add some Gaussian Blur to soften edges.
This is how cucumber.psd file will look like
 
2. In this tutorial step create black circle and apply to the selected circle Filter -> Artistic -> Plastic Wrap. It will make star burst. Smudge star’s beams with Smudge Tool as shown
This is how cucumber.psd file will look like
 

3. Make circle on New Layer and apply Filter -> Artistic -> Plastic Wrap. You will get a “star”-like object. To modify it go to Distort -> Shear and then manually smudge “star beams”

This is how cucumber.psd file will look like

 

4. Apply natural color to a cucumber body and using Layer Styles "round" it. For "star" set Layer Mode to Screen and apply needed Layer Styles settings. On a New Layer make cucumber ribs-lines. Set Layer Styles to them.
This is how cucumber.psd file will look like
 
5. Using small Brush make scattered spots over cucumber body and then pimple them with Layer Style Bevel and Emboss. Add some water droples.
This is how cucumber.psd file will look like
 
6. To make it a bit dirty speckled effect apply Filter -> Artistic -> Smudge Stick. I didn’t do it – I like washed greenie vegetables… If you have any comments, regarding this lesson – please leave ’em. If you can do it better, than me(I am sure!), register with Photoshop 3d and show us your talant.
