Not your average fuckboy. I have a unique perspective on a lot of pointless things.
[Tutorial] ALL for beginners and advanced
Well, folks ... I see that many members have difficulty in certain simple things and that helped a lot in your sign, so I decided to do a tutorial teaching basics such as lighting, application of c4d's, etc ...
Well, let's put the topic (use ctrl + f to find the related topics by its title):
-Well, to apply a render you need to start a new document (File> New ..> choose the size of your sign / avatar)
"Now let's apply our yield on our empty image to download this one render / stock and click file> place and select the yield
-Well, opacity is very used because it can soften the intensity of the images, to choose the percentage of opacity you want on each layer you have to go in this place
-Well, blend mode is widely used to imaging effects, such as in c4d's, it is widely used just to use the lighting of a c4d or leave a darker image, etc ... To find it click into place indicated below:
"Here below we have such a sign with and without illumination:
-To make a light is easy, choose a soft brush (one round brush that "some" in the corners, it's not a complete circle, it is softer, we may say so), select it with 200 white pixels or other size you think the sign is cool.
-Choose a light beam, preferably to match the lighting, rendering, for example, where is the shadow rendering, is a nice if you focus on ali.Escolha this focus, preferably on the edge of the sign and give one or two strokes with this brush.
-Gradients are essential to have harmony between the bottom and the surrender and to sign more beautiful.
-Get a Comparative Below (the left is without the direct and the gradients are with):
-To apply them in a very difficult, click where the image below shows:
After-Choose Gradient Map:
"Now choose the color of your gradient map:
-Okay, now it's just you choose blend mode soft light or overlay (the most used in gradients) and get the opacity.
Well, Apply Image is very useful for you to have all layers into one, it serves for you to use certain effects, or just have a "backup" in just one layer, for that click Image> Apply Image.
Smudge-is a tool often used mainly to make money, bg's, backgrounds, etc ... is a tool that serves to blur any area of the image to go to it then right at the place indicated below and choose the smudge:
To apply C4D's usually, if you want to use all of it, not just the highlights, you can apply like a normal yield (above is a topic taught), but if you want to use only the effects of brightness, you'll need to move in Blend Mode (above is a topic that is taught and how to move), put it in Lighten, Screen, Color Dodge, or Linear Dodge (4 blend these modes use only the brightness of c4d, each with a bit of brightness, contrast and saturation.
Difference c4d blend mode to normal, Lighten, Screen, Color Dodge and Linear Dodge:
Here may not seem much difference, but their signs you will find it a lot between each on.Não has a better blend mode, I personally use one every hour even on normal ... You can also try other blends.
Topaz is an extra program-photoshop, that is, it does not come in photoshop you have to download it, it is a useful practice, it serves to add quality jpg images, for best quality, to clean up an image of imperfections, is sharpen a lot better than the photoshop and much more, comparative image with and without topaz:
-Download, install and your crackeie Topaz (I will not teach here, look on the internet because it's pretty easy).
To use it is easy, go to Filters> Topaz Vivacity and choose the type of Topaz whatever, below what each one does:
Clean-Topaz = To Clear Image;
-Topaz DeJPEG = Back to the quality of an image on Save. JPG;
-Topaz Denoise: For Making Noise Image;
-Topaz Enlarge 2x: To increase the quality of images will increase by 200%;
-Topaz Sharpen: Serves to increase the sharpness of an image.
Blending Options-is widely used to make shade, brightness, etc ... in renders, fonts, finally any layer ...
To go to the Blending Options-click the right layer and go where it is shown below:
-After clicking the place indicated, will open a window, it will have the types of blending, the choice that you like and party
-Type is the phrase, word, text, finally what is written on a sign / I'll teach avatar...aqui just do it, to learn techniques, seek specific tutorials.
-To use the tool to write with the menu on the left and click the "T", i choose the location and type what you want.
-Some tips that I will make are: never use typography too big, always very discreet; Use colors that match the sign; Never write much, you can use the blending modes that I spoke on the topic up to the shade, brightness, etc.. .. in its type.
Good, edge is very simple to do, here to teach you the signs of rectangular ... first select the tool shown in the image in a new layer:
Photo-filter is a technique widely used to give a delicate color to any sign, which gives a pretty good result.
-To use it, go where the image below shows:
Okay, have a list of colors is just pick one that you like more, notice that the sign will turn a shade of color is selected (you can still tweak the opacity to let weaker if desired).
-This tool is for you to move in light of its sign, leave it lighter or darker as you like, create a new layer, apply the image and to get this tool, go to Image> Adjustments> Curves and open a small window with a black line, move it by dragging with the mouse and checking the results, then you can still move the opacity of the layer to be weaker if desired.
-Color Balance serves to increase the density of any color, to get there, first create a new layer, apply image give and go to Image> Adjustments> Color Balance, will open a window with 3 lines and a deal for you to adjust each , get to your liking and take a look, you can still tweak the opacity of the layer to be weaker if desired.
-Well, here you learn the basics of each tool, to specialize more read muuuuuuuuuuuito tutorials, because they helped you enough, also try to always listen to criticism, it helped you.
