Creating Chameleon Effect Fabric Texture
Here one more interesting tutorial where Iâ€™m going to show you how to create amazing fabric texture with chameleon effect using just Photoshop tools.
Letâ€™s start with a new document. For this Photoshop tutorial Iâ€™m using a rather puny size of 700×700 pixels, feel free to use a larger size though. Select some appropriate colors, for example colors of #7000a4, #911661 and drag a linear gradient.
After that use the Smudge Tool (Brush: 100px, Mode: Normal, Strength: 50%) to add a couple of paint-brush strokes.
Ok, after that create the texture. Apply Filter > Texture > Texturizer with next presets:
We made our fabric texture like on the picture below.
Letâ€™s add some folds to our fabric. Select the Burn Tool (Brush: 100 px, Mode: Shadows, Exposure: 20%) and add a few dark lines to the canvas.
Now, apply the Dodge Tool (Brush: 100 px, Mode: Highlights, Exposure: 30%) to enhance contrast of the folds.
Reduce the brush size and add thin bright lines on the top of folds.
Looks good, isnâ€™t it? And the last one thing that we have to do is add chameleon effect to our fabric. For this apply Quick Mask Mode with gradient as below:
Then go back to Standard Mode. Now we have some selected area.
Apply Image > Adjustments > Hue/Saturation (or press Ctrl+U) to selected area with similar settings to these:
Remove selection with Ctrl+D and we get the next chameleon effect:
Ok, we are done for now! Thanks for reading; I hope you enjoyed the tutorial!
