Faking Clouds

So yea - Awhile ago i’ve posted my Fake cloud picture.

So if you want to learn how to do that - Follow this tutorial. (Though i think it’s a useless/crappy tut. Lol)

1. So i’ll be using this picture - Download it if you like and Open Photoshop.

2. Now create a new layer above the Background Layer.

3. Using a soft brush and “White” for the color - Start brushing letters.

You’ll get something like this…

Adding Textures in Photoshop.

Question : Why do some artist use this technique?

Answer :

1. It improves their artwork.
2. Style
3. Vintage/Old Effect in Pictures


1. First Go to Deviantart and search for “Photoshop Textures”, In this tutorial I’ll be using a “Grunge Texture” you can also use Bokeh Texture, Rust Texture, Paper Texture, etc.

I’ll be using Struckdumb’s Texture

Save it your Computer then Open Photoshop.

2. Then you can now create a document in Photoshop and you can type your text.


3. Now open the Texture picture.

4. Now select Everything by Pressing Ctrl+A, you’ll see those marching ants indicating that you’ve selected the whole piture, Once everything is selected hit Ctrl+C(Copy) or Ctrl +X (Cut)


5. Now go back to your text document and hit Ctrl+V(Paste)

6.Hit Ctrl + T(Transform) and resize the Texture… then Change the blending options to “Multiply”

7. Reduce the opacity according to your preferences.


PS: You can also try other blending options aside from “Multiply”

My Other samples.

Adding Fake Bokeh/s

This is how i add fake bokeh/s on my pictures.

- Seriously i’m not good with this but i’ll post this one just to give the previous anon, an idea.

Step 1 : Download this brush first. Bokeh Brushes by Nuarted of D.A

Step 2: Open the picture in photoshop.

Step 3 : Load the bokeh brush. Press the play button then choose “Load Brushes” then choose the bokeh brushes you downloaded.

Step 4 : Go back to the picture, then Create a new layer at the top.

Step 5 : Now change your Background and Foreground Colors so you can start the bokeh brush.


Note : When i’m faking the bokeh - I use really light colors. Colors that are related to the colors in the picture. Example - On this picture - I use a light Orange color. because the background is orange. Lol

Step 6 : Start Brushing.

Step 7: Apply some Gaussian blur then change the blending option to “Soft Light” and reduce opacity according to your preferences.

This is my finish product - .. Seriously you can do better. :)

Goodluck.
