Sony Ericsson G900 - A Photoshop tutorial
As announced on the deviation, I’ve created a tutorial of the Sony Ericsson G900 picture.
I’ve tried to create it as easy as possible that you can understand every step. All right, lets start !
Create a new file (I used 500×800 in the original) and fill it with any color (I used purple, #6d005c).
Take the burn tool and darken the marked area (image). Then switch to thedodge tool and lighten the marked areas (image). The shadows and highlights create something like a room.
Now, take the image (sonyericsson presslibary) of the mobile phone and delete the whole white parts (cut it out) and place it in the center.
Duplicate the layer of the mobile phone and color it completly white (ctrl+u - lightness +100). Use the gaussian blur to create a glow and set the layer onoverlay. Don’t forget to put the layer below the mobile phone layer.
Get Spazz24’s Splatter Brushes and install them. Create a new layer between the glow and the mobile phone and use some of the brushes to get a result like I got.
Create a new layer below the mobile phone, draw a dark bold line with the paintbrush and place it below the phone (phones shadow). You can also create a dark rectangle, blur it and rotate it slightly.
Add a layer mask (hide all), press D and drag a vertikal line to hide the bottom part of the reflection. Your result should look like this (image).
Create a new layer (above the others) and use the pen (only paths) to create a zigzag form around the phone. Start in the bottom left corner.
Select the paintbrush, choose a 2px brush (soft) and set white as foreground color. Now switch to the pen again. Rightclick on the path and choose stroke path (brush).
Duplicate the line layer and move it 5px upwards. Press ctrl+u and color the line (hue 290; saturation 100; lightness -50).Press ctrl+e to merge the layers. Duplicate the merged layer and use gaussian blur (about 1px) to create a glow.
Create a new file with the sizes 30×30 and fill it black. Go to edit -> define brush preset and name it ’square’ (or something). Switch to our phone picture, create a new layer and select the paintbrush. Open the brush palette and choose our new created square-brush. Click here to see the settings (sorry, but I use the german version).
Create a new layer, set white as foreground color and click a few times on the 2 lines. If you like your result, set the layer on overlay.
Make a new layer, select the ellipse tool and create by dragging a big ellipse. Switch to the eraser (oppacity 50% and a biiiig pencil) and erase the marked area (image). The gradient has to be very soft!
Set the layer on soft light with an oppacity of ~40% and duplicate the layer. Now you can rotate and move the layer into a nice position.
