In this week’s Pixel Playground tutorial, Bert shows us how to create an embroidered veil with depth.
His first step is to create the pattern that will become the netted fabric, also referred to as tulle. Next, Bert designs a brush preset he’ll use to add the embroidered rose and trim. To create the rose design, he uses a photograph of a rose as a guide and creates paths along the petals; this is then pasted onto the fabric. He then adds the blue background and masks the lower edge to achieve the scalloped trim. With the foundation in place, he then uses his brush preset to add the embroidery.
The next stage of the effect is to add dimension to the fabric by giving it a sense of flow and movement with shading underneath. Finally he distorts the fabric, adds a drop shadow, and warps it for maximum effect.
Watch this week’s video to get started on your design, and be sure to check back next week for the next installment of Pixel Playground, in which Bert creates an animation in Photoshop using a mask.
