Step 1- To get stared on your professional gaming emblem, go ahead and open up an emblem from some professional sport. This will give you an idea of what it should look like, and what color it will be. Now, open your document and make it any size you want. I’m going to make it a bit landscape (400×200) so its size will mirror a pro looking logo. Fill the background with white.
Step 2 – Now, select the Rounded Rectangle Tool and make a shape that spans the document. Take your eye dropper tool and grab the blue color form the professional sports logo. Then fill your rounded rectangle with it. You should have something that look like this…
Step 3 – Next, you need to find something significant from the activity that you’re making the logo for. Just for the sake of things, I’m going to make it for World of Warcraft. Something popular in the game is night elf females. So, I’m going to find me a good picture of a night elf female.
Step 4 – Now, trace around the night elft with your polygon lasso tool . Once you have a selection around her, drag it over to your main document.
Step 5 – Ok, the next step is easy and just requires adding a couple of blending options. First, apply a color overlay of white to the night elf.
Step 6 – Now, take your rounded rectangle tool again and make a rectangle the covers the entire right hand side of the blue rectangle. Use your night elf as a marker for where you want it to start. Now, fill it with the red from your pro sports emblem. Find a point on the night elf where the top of its head touches the top of the emblem, and a point where the bottom touches the bottom of the emblem. Then erase everything to the left of this point. You should have this…
