In this tutorial Iâ€™m going to teach you how to draw nice flower just like the ones below!
First of all letâ€™s create a new document in Photoshop. For this tutorial Iâ€™m using size of500x500 px with all of the default settings. Select some appropriate colors, for example colors of #ccea01, #507502 and drag a radial gradient.
Now begin to create flower petals. Do this by using Pen Tool. I prefer to choose the color of#35d5e6.
Use Layer > Rasterize > Shape to rasterize all of flower petals. Select Burn Tool (Range: Shadows, 50%) to make dark spots on the petal.
Do the same thing with other petals.
Now apply Dodge Tool (Range: Highlights, 20%) to every layer. Your image should look as below:
Time to bring some patterns to flower. Get out the Custom Shape Tool and select Grass 2 Shape (this is standard shape).
Use color of #001c86 to get the picture as below:
Make the same thing with other petals. Rotate every pattern with Edit > Free Transform Path.
Set opacity to 30% up for every pattern.
Now I would like to make the flower surface â€˜heterogeneous.â€™ For this effect merge all layers of flower in one, then create a new layer fill it with black color and apply Filter > Noise > Add Noise with similar settings to these:
Change layer mode to Overlay for this layer and set opacity to 50% up.
Go to layer with flower Right click the Layer Thumbnail in the Layers Palette. Then go back to the â€˜heterogeneousâ€™ surface layer and press Ctrl+Shift+I to invert the selection, then press Del to clear selected area. Remove the selection with Select > Deselect. After that actions get out the Eraser Tool and a soft round brush (opacity about 50%, size of 45 px) and make clear bright parts of petals.
Now select Smudge Tool and a soft round brush (opacity 30% and size of 150 px) and make and smudge a little bit every petal from the end to the centre to get the picture as below:
You image should look as mine:
Ok, now merge all layer of flower in one again and press Ctrl+D to duplicate layer. Then diminish and rotate the lower copy with Edit > Free Transform.
I think itâ€™s time to add receptacle to our flower. Now youâ€™ll want to begin with creating receptacle of the flower. For this get out the Brush Tool with the next presets:
Then begin to draw a form as on picture below using color of #fbfe00.
Apply Outer Glow layer style to this layer:
Create a new one layer and make a new one form using color of #febf00. Now resize the brush size to 170 px.
Apply Outer Glow layer style again with similar settings to these:
Create a new one layer again and make a new one form using color of #fe8f00. Now resize the brush size to 110 px. Apply the same layer style as was created above.
Create the last one new layer and make a new one form using color of # fe4200. Now resize the brush size to 50 px and apply the same layer style.
Your image should now look like mine:
