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.

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

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”

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.

5. Using small Brush make scattered spots over cucumber body and then pimple them with Layer Style Bevel and Emboss. Add some water droples.

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.
