Create a Cool Signature (Megan Fox Example)

Welcome! Today you’ll learn how to make this signature :

Now, make a new document: " File > New "I’ve used 400 by 90, you can use another size if you want to . Fill the first layer with white: " Edit > Fill "Now find a nice looking render, bring it into your canvas, and then re-size it. I have placed mine in the middle of my tag.

Make a new layer and select your brush tool. Get out the soft round brush and make two orange dots around the render’s face. I have made mine on the bottom of the tag. Set the layer to Linear dodge.

Do the same as we did one step before, but this time use yellow and make the dots at different places from the previous time.

Take your brush tool and select some cool brushes (maybe grunge; just some that look like mine). Then select yellow and brush on the bottom of the tag with them. Do it on the left side of the render and on the right side.

Now take your brush tool again, select a soft round brush and make two black dots (one on the left side of the render’s head, and the second on the right side). Set the layer to Soft Lighten.

Again, select the brush tool. Select some cool brushes as with the yellow brushing. This time use black and brush on the sides.

Find a nice looking c4D, and place it on the right side of the render’s head. Then sharpen it some: " Filter > sharpen > sharpen ".Erase the rest, and you’ll have something like this :

Set It to lighten

Apply Image on a new layer: " Image > apply image ".Then take your burn tool, select a soft round brush and make the left and right side around the head a lot lighter. Then lower the opacity of the layer to 55%

Find a nice stock and place it in the middle of the tag. Take the erase tool and erase the parts you don’t like. Set the layer to color.

Apply Image on a new layer: " image > apply image ".Then do " filter > liquify ".Play with it until you have something like this :

Set the layer to saturation :

Add a yellow texture like this again :

Set to darken at 50% opacity.

Add the same texture as one step before, but this time smudge it a bit. Set it to darken.

Add a nice looking c4D (one with a red color). Smudge it and erase the parts you don’t like.

Add gradient map :

Set to Multiply at 15% opacity.

Apply image: " Image > apply image ". Then erase everything except the bottom of the tag and set the layer to Dissolve.

Do the same as the previous time but this time use another stock (something with more colors). Set it to Dissolve also and erase the ugly parts.

Apply image on new layer: " Image > apply image ".Take your dodge tool and make some parts of the tag lighter. Lower the opacity of the layer to 55%

Take your brush tool, and by using a soft round brush, make some dots around the render. I have used yellow. Use different sizes for the dots.

Add gradient map :

Set to hard light @ 50% opacity. Erase the parts you don’t like.

Add another gradient map :

Set to saturation and erase the parts you don’t like.

Add color balance :

Leave at normal but erase the parts you don’t like .

Apply image: " image > apply Image "Then do " filter > distort > displace " and select one of your old psd’s, now erase the parts you don’t like .

Take your blur tool and by using a soft round brush blur some parts of the tag.

Make a new layer and take your brush tool and select a soft round brush and white color then make a big dot under the render’s head. Set it to Soft light at 55% opacity.

Add gradient map :

Set to multiply at 15% opacity and erase the parts you don’t like.

Apply image on a new layer and do ” filter > sharpen > sharpen “. Erase the parts you don’t like .

Add gradient map :

Set the luminosity at 25% opacity.

Apply image on a new layer: " Image >apply image " then " filter > distort > displace ". Select one of your old psd’s and then erase the parts you don’t like.

Add color balance :

Leave it at normal but lower the opacity to 15%

Now you’re done. I hope you have learned something new and like your outcome.
