Photoshop Poster Tutorial – G900
As announced on the deviation, I’ve created a tutorial of the Sony Ericsson G900 picture.
Creating posters with Photoshop is a necessary part of any print and graphic designer. To get started, it can be very helpful to check out a Photoshop poster tutorial like that one. In this tutorial you will learn how you can create a 3D styled room where your product is presented in. For extraordinary boost you can add some effects by using Abstract Brushes.
It’s a perfect example for creating an awesome Poster with Photoshop.
Now, take the image (UPDATE: The original G900 picture isn’t available anymore. So you can use this Lumia picture taken from the press libary of Nokia.) of the mobile phone and delete the whole white parts (cut it out) and place it in the center. You can take any other phone.
Duplicate the layer of the mobile phone and color it completly white (ctrl+u – lightness +100). Use the gaussian blur to create a glow and set the layer on overlay. Don’t forget to put the layer below the mobile phone layer.
Get Spazz24′s Splatter Brushes and install them (If you don’t know how to install brushes, read this guide). Create a new layer between the glow and the mobile phone and use some of the brushes to get a result like I got.
Create a new layer below the mobile phone, draw a dark bold line with the paintbrush and place it below the phone (phones shadow). You can also create a dark rectangle, blur it and rotate it slightly.
Duplicate the line layer and move it 5px upwards. Press ctrl+u and color the line (hue 290; saturation 100; lightness -50).Press ctrl+e to merge the layers. Duplicate the merged layer and use gaussian blur (about 1px) to create a glow.
Create a new file with the sizes 30×30 and fill it black. Go to edit -> define brush preset and name it ‘square’ (or something). Switch to our phone picture, create a new layer and select the paintbrush. Open the brush palette and choose our new created square-brush. Click here to see the settings (sorry, but I use the german version).
Make a new layer, select the ellipse tool and create by dragging a big ellipse. Switch to the eraser (oppacity 50% and a biiiig pencil) and erase the marked area (image). The gradient has to be very soft!
Don’t forget to add a cool text or something. Your poster is done now. Check my other tutorials here!
