I just wrote a little Tutorial, and I hope you get my point. I’m sorry if you don’t, but you know English is my second language.
So let´s start.
This tutorial is about this Signature.
You need the following resources
I start the graphic with a new file (File -> New) with a size of 500x200px. As a background I use a gradient layer with the colors #dbddd7 over #cf436b to #1f1828
Your graphic should now look like this.
I create a rectangle with the color #000000 with the rectangle tool and put it on the right side of my graphic.
Then my first person comes up with the graphics. I’ll leave the image in black and white and set the layer property to Multiply.
Now I take Texture1. Put them on my graphic and set the layer property to screen. So that the texture can only be seen on the right side, I give it a layer mask and cut the texture to match.
Since I don’t like to keep it so white, I put a color area (Layer -> New Fill Layer > Solid Color) with the color #029b92 and set the layer property of the color area to Multiply.
Then I apply a clipping mask to texture1 so that the color can only be seen on the pattern.
Now I duplicate Texture1 once and mirror this layer (Edit -> Transform -> Flip Horizontal). Then I move the texture under my person.
I know I have this gap in the middle between the patterns. But that doesn’t bother me and in the end you only see it if you know. So I leave it that way.
So I now take Texture2 with the layer property screen[/ b] and put it in the middle of my graphic.
With the ellipse tool I create a circle in the color [b]#000000 and give the circle a layer mask and remove part of it. It doesn’t have to be exactly in the middle. I move the circle to the edge of my black rectangle.
My second person comes onto this circle with the help of a clipping mask.
In fact, the turquoise stuff in the second photo was already on the picture and that’s why I chose the turquoise for the pattern.
I now use the ellipse tool to create two circles with a contour of 1px in the color #ffffff and cut them off in half. I put them a little offset around my black circle.
If it goes well, it will end up looking like this. That doesn’t make the circle so flat and boring in the middle.
The last texture is now Texture3. Also multiply with the layer property screen. I slide the texture so that I have one of the “strokes” on the right side of the circle.
The text for my graphic is already coming.
Because the text in “only” white is too boring for me. I put a invert layer (Layer -> New Adjustment Layer > Invert) over it and apply a clipping mask so that the layer is only applied to the text.
Then I give the layer a layer mask and remove the layer where I find it good.
This gives the font such a black and white effect without me having to work hard.
Now comes the color. For this I put the coloring on my graphic.
Then I duplicate the coloring once and set the opacity of the duplicate to 30%.
With that the whole thing is already done.
