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 Signatur.
You need the following resources
I start for my signature with a new file (File -> New) in size 500x230px. The background color I adapt to my first picture. In my case, it’s # d6d6d6, it’ll probably be a different color in another image.
I put my first picture on my signature
As you can see now you can see the edge of the picture on the left. Since I just do not feel like it in any texture to dazzle I use the rectangle Tool
And create a bar at the left edge of my signature with the color # 40a2cb.
With the same color I create slightly to the right of the edge a second much narrower bar and at the same time with the color # 506b76 one more. I lay the two narrow beams close together.
I now put texture1 on my graph and multiply the blending mode to screen. I do not want to have the golden patterns in my artwork, so I push the texture so that I only see the bright pattern.
Now comes texture2 with the blending mode multiply on my graphic.
I now put Textur3 on my graph and set the blending mode to screen .
It follows my 2nd person for this graphic. To do this, I create a hexagon with the polygon tool (right click on the rectangle tool in the toolbar)
The background color does not matter but for a contour I choose the color # 3a81a5 at 2px.
On top of that, I put the picture of my person and give the picture a clipping mask so that it can only be seen on this hexagon.
I then use texture4 with the level setting negative mutliplieren . I give the texture a layer mask and take away the long line above the pattern. I push the texture so that you can not see the bird like that.
Then I take my 3rd person and release her. I make this picture black and white
Uhh text. I know you love him
I made the subtext in the font Bebas New and the color #282728 and #ffffff
The main text is also in Bebas Neue and in the font Germanika gestalltet.
I conclude by placing Textur5 negatively on my graph with the blending mode multiply .
I reduced the texture to 90%.
I give the texture a layer mask and take it away with a soft brush over my people easily. And I see now that my first picture is way too dark. So I go back to the picture and make it a little brighter. I do that by lightening the picture myself and then going back to Textur2 and taking it off the face as well.
Now I put the Coloring1 on my graphic.
The coloring is very nice but as you can see it makes my colorful picture pretty dark. So I go to the picture and light it up.
I now put my graphic in a folder, duplicate it and put a folder on a plane. Then I apply Topaz.
Thanks to dream thief for the settings, I love them
too soft for many but i celebrate it. Therefore it is not a MUST.
Go to Topaz Clean3 -> Crisp Collection -> Edge Boots with the following settings
Then again the same with the settings
And finally sharpness over it (Filter ->Sharpen > Smart Sharpen) with the settings
I give this layer a layer mask and take away the layer above the text to 100% and over the faces with 30-40%
Then I’m still on a vibrance layer on it with the settings
And the whole thing is done
