Wall-E Cartoon Style Wallpaper

Do you want to make cartoon style wallpaper by yourself? Ok, then this tutorial special for you.

Now we’re going to make a really nice starlit night background. Create a new document in Photoshop, something like 1920×1200 px and drag a linear gradient with colors of #000000 and #141b4c.

Create one more new layer with Layer > New > Layer and fill it with black color. Ok, now we will try to create cartoon starlit night effect. For this apply Filters > Noise > Add Noise with similar settings to these:

Press Ctrl+I again to invert image back and change the layer mode for this layer to Screen.
Now comes the important part, we need to take off superfluous groups of stars. For this apply Eraser Tool with brush size 50 px and erase away content layer selectively. So, now you’ve got something interesting like that:

Then apply Filter > Sharpen > Sharpen and set up opacity of 35% for this layer.

Looks good! The next step what we need to bring pictures of heroes to our wallpaper. Actually, you can use different pictures of heroes of this cartoon. I prefer to use two of those, for example Wall-E & Eva.
If you want to download images of heroes used above, please feel free: Wall-E.png and Eva.png
Well, I would like to bring some luminescence to picture of Wall-E to create a feeling of moonlight. For his effect right-clicking the layer in the layer’s palette then going into the Blending Options. When you’re in the Blending Options, click and apply the following layer styles/settings:

The next step what we need to add some flying trace to our second hero of Eva. Do this by using Pen Tool with color of #4698f9. Look at picture below:

wall-e image 21

Then set up fill of 20% for this layer. Now, head into the Blending Options for this layer, so right-click your layer and go into the Blending Options and apply the following layer styles:

After apply Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur with similar settings to these:

The flying trace is fantastic:

Well, to make flying trace more interactive we can add some details on it. For this make selection with Elliptical Marquee Tool and fill our selection with color of #4698f9 like on a picture below:

Then apply Select > Modify > Contract and contract selection about 3 px, press Del to clear selected area:
