      Pandaren Signature Tutorial

      Pandaren Signature Tutorial
      This is not that basic, so you will need some basic photoshopping knowledge. I am not sure if this can be replicated with gimp...
      By the way, pandarens are creatures from another game I play.
      Anyway, here we go!

      Here is the final result:

      To start, I will be playing around with a new size of 500x125px. Create a document this size and paste in your render.

      Now, fill your background with black.

      Use colors taken from the render (eyedropper tool) and paint a background with a soft brush.

      Now, we are going to smudge the background. Use settings similar to those below.



      Smudge outward from the render.

      Make a new layer over the render and use a 50% opacity white brush to reinforce the highlights, which are by the panda's head and a bit underneath his left arm.

      Add in a few textures above the render. I added a bokeh and a c4d or two. Set the c4ds to color doge. As for the bokehs, go to channels and find the channel with the most contrast. Command+click on the icon for that channel and copy it with command+c. Set the bokeh (copied channel) to overlay.

      Use layer masks to remove parts of the textures that don't look good.

      Put in a starry texture. Before putting it in, use the channel method to extract it. Then, set it to color doge.

      Since I am especially picky with this sort of thing, I decided that I did not like the grey in the corner. I went back to the first layer and covered the grey with black. I then smudged it.
      this

      to this

      Use a layer mask on the render to make it blend.

      Use the channels method on a c4d and desaturated it on normal. Make a new layer, hide the c4d, and click image>apply image and then edit>transform>flip horizontal. Show the c4d layer (under the applied image) and then click the applied image. Go to layer>clipping mask.

      Here, I worked with the lighting a bit more. I used a bright yellow over the edges of the render and white on the light sources. Use colors that match your signature.

      Create a gradient map and set it to soft light. Mine was dark purple to light purple, but pick something that matches your color scheme.

      Create a photofilter. I used a warming filter at 75 density. Pick something that matches your colors.

      Go to image>apply image again. Use filter>sharpen>sharpen edges.

      Erase anything you don't like.

      Apply the image again and go to filter>blur>gaussian blur and erase the render and anything else that doesn't look good.

      Add a border (I used 4px white on top and bottom) and text (I didn't use any) and then you are done!

      Re: Pandaren Signature Tutorial

      Great tutorial! I would try but my photoshop knowledge is awful so it might end up terrible >.<
      Also, do you mind if I ask what game that the Pandaren is from? It looks pretty cool. :)

      Re: Pandaren Signature Tutorial

      Very nice guide! I'm currently trying to figure out how to get the smudge brush settings. I use Adobe Photoshop 9 and I still don't know where everything is (it's somewhat pathetic).

      Thanks for posting the guide!
