      Little Angel Signature Tutorial

      Little Angel Signature Tutorial

      This requires some basic photoshop knowledge. Most of it can be replicated in gimp.
      I would love to see results! By the way: I did not attach any fractals, textures, or c4ds because I think it is important for people to find those things themselves. If you are really struggling in finding nice ones, I can provide you with a few.

      I was very tired while making this, but it was fun!
      Ok, enough with me talking. Let's get started!

      Here is what we are making:


      Start with a new canvas: 400x200px


      Paste in your render. I used this angel from a painting.


      Take some colors from the render and paint the background with the colors.


      Add in a painted texture. These can be found on deviant art.


      Desaturate the texture and set it to overlay.


      Add in another one. This one is a grungy mix between a c4d and a paint texture.


      Set the texture to screen.


      Duplicate the texture and flip it around. Then set it to multiply.


      Use a layer mask to remove the bottom of the texture on multiply.


      Add a c4d. Set it to color doge.


      I did not like the little red patch by the bottom of the angel, so I went back to the first layer and smudged it.


      On a layer above the render, brush some black at the top and set it to overlay.


      Use a layer mask on the render. Erase a bit of the top and bottom. I also moved the render down a bit here, because I was not satisfied with the placement.


      Above this, create a gradient map using a gradient similar to this one. Set the gradient map to soft light.

      With gradient map:


      I thought that the render did not fit enough, so I went back to the layer mask on the render and brushed a bit more on the edges.


      Underneath the render, I decided to add another stock. I used a starry fractal, desaturated and set to color doge.


      This will probably be the most confusing part for most people. On a new layer above everything, take a black splatter brush (find one on deviant art) and brush a bit around the render.


      Hide the splatters. Make a new layer and go to image>apply image. Then show the splatters. Select the applied layer and go to layer>create clipping mask. then, drag the applied layer down a bit. You can skip this if you find it confusing!


      Here are the last steps! First, go to the render layer and go to filter>sharpen edges. Then, make a new layer and select all. Then, go to edit>stroke. Use these settings:


      And then:
      You are done!


      Hope this helps you out!

      Hi Keira! I decided to try this. I could not figure out the gradient map, the layer mask, or the clipping mask, but i could do everything else. Also, the place that you get texture thingys from is blocked out, so you should change those. I just used a google search to find the ones I used for this.

      Anyway:
      First sig ever!!!!

      Re: Little Angel Signature Tutorial

      Hey, I finally decided to try this tut.

      I had trouble since I used Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 (and I have no idea how to use it.. Was kinda figuring everything out. I ended up having to use gimp to get the splatter part, heh) but I really like this guide..



      I couldn't find a good c4d thing, so that's what I ended up with.. Meh.

      Anyways you should totally do some more guides (:

      I have a bunch of guides linked in my sig. If you think I should make more, I would love a request for what kind of guide. You can go through my albums if you like. I just don't know what to make a guide about.
