Making Funny Disco Style Background

In this little Photoshop tutorial we’ll be designing funny disco style background, for your wallpapers, greeting cards, etc.

Let’s start with a new document. For this Photoshop tutorial I’m using a size of 1000×1000 pixels, 72 dpi and black color.

First of all press D to set up foreground and background colors black and white, then create a new layer and apply Filter > Render > Clouds:

Now use Image > Adjustments > Brightness > Contrast to make clouds more contrast:

To get the next picture:

Looks not good yet! Ok, next we’ll add cool white lines to the background. Now before we can start making our lines, I would like to note you that you need to get out the Brush Tool before and set up with the following settings:

Making Funny Disco Style Image 16

Also set foreground color as white. Get out the Pen Tool (you need to make sure that you’re working with Paths instead of Shape Layers) and drag the first line onto your canvas like I’ve done in the below screenshot:

Making Funny Disco Style Image 17

Create a new layer, then right-click and select Stroke Path.

A little dialog box will appear as in the screenshot. Choose the Brush from stroke path resources and press OK. The picture use to look as mine:

Next right click again and select Delete Path. Add two more lines, making the same things two more times:

Now select the Polygonal Lasso Tool to make selection of small part of line as below:

Making Funny Disco Style Image 21

Then select the Blur Tool (Strength: 50%) and blur the selected part of line. Press Ctrl+D to deselect it. You can see the result below:

Making Funny Disco Style Image 22

Also you can blur more parts of different lines:

Making Funny Disco Style Image 23

Now get out the Brush Tool and a soft round brush (size of 9 px) to make little white dots on the blurred and normal lines boundary.

Ok, let’s move onto the next step. Create a new one layer, then select the Ellipse Tool and make different white rounds as on picture below (Note: every time pres Shift to make all the rounds on the same layer):

Set opacity up to 20% for this layer. Then create a new layer and create new white rounds on it and set opacity up to 20% for this layer too.

Making Funny Disco Style Image 26

Make the last one layer for white rounds. Do the same things again.

Making Funny Disco Style Image 27

Ok, merge all layers with white rounds and lines in one and apply the following layer style:
• Gradient Overlay

Making Funny Disco Style Image 28

Now your canvas should look as mine:

Making Funny Disco Style Image 29

After that things set opacity to 50% up and press Ctrl+J to duplicate layer, then apply Filter > Blur > Box Blur with similar settings to these:

Making Funny Disco Style Image 30

See the difference:

Making Funny Disco Style Image 31

Ok, to finish off the background I think we should add some white dots on it to make it funnier and more contrast. Get out the Brush Tool and a soft round brush (size of 9 pixels) and put some dots on the new layer as below. Set opacity up to 50% for this layer.
