Návody pre Photoshop 

Missing Piece - making of

This tutorial is about Missing Piece wallpaper. The most important thing you need for good wallpaper is the idea ;-) So  I came up with pencil sketch, which I then scanned and opened in Photoshop.

Create new document, fill it with background color of your desire (I chose greyish blue), and apply the following filters:
- Noise (Filters menu - Noise - Add noise)
- Sponge (Filters menu - Artistic - Sponge)
- Textutizer (Filters - Texture - Texturizer)

Important! After applying each effect, immediately hit Ctrl-Shift-F (Fade) and fade each filter down to 10-20%.

I overlayed my scanned image for reference...

Set foreground color to orange, switch to Pen tool (P) and create a shape of puzzle piece, using pencil sketch as reference.

Here is the completed shape - I decided it does not need to  be very symmetric!

Open Layer menu - Layer Style - Blending Options (or simply double-click on layer) and apply the following layer effects:

- Outer glow: black, size 3px, mode=overlay
- Bevel and emboss: size 2px, highlight mode=overlay, shadow mode=overlay
- Pattern overlay: choose any pattern that fits :-) blend mode=overlay, opacity=10-15%

Duplicate this layer, change orange color to much darker (brown), then move this new layer down (so that it  is behind original orange layer) and then move shape a little up and right. This will give additional depth to the puzzle piece.

Well, one piece is ready! Repeat these steps and create another one...

Then again, again, again, again, again, again, again, again, again, again, again, again, again, again and again :-)

Use hard black brush (B) to draw hands, legs and eyes.

In new layer (behind brush layer), draw white eyes content with white brush. Apply some Drop shadow to  it (blend mode=soft light).

Repeat for all pieces!

Shadows are very important in this wallpapers - they give convincing 3D look, without need of any 3D software. Switch to black soft brush, set brush opacity to 30-40%, and sketch the shadow.

Set shadow layer blend mode to soft light (so that the shadow is not so strong).

Create new layer, switch to very large (100-150px) black brush, and add some more strokes to the shadow.

Again, set this layer blend mode to Soft light.

And finally, in another new layer, use small soft brush for some more small shadow - right below the legs. Again, set layer blend mode to Soft light.

Repeat and create shadows for all pieces.

The final touch is  to apply some blur to upper part of wallpaper - it will create illusion of macro photo shoot. First, we need gradient selection" - that is

Turn off Quick Mask (hit Q again). This is approximately what selection should look like.

Apply Blur (Filter - Blur - Gaussian Blur, or Filter - Blur - Lens Blur) to selected image (you will need to merge your layers, so that entire wallpaper is  in one layer). Experiment with blur size - 20-30px should be OK. That's all!

Must have taken ages... I like the idea of blurring the background to make it look like a macro photo, I'd never thought of doing that!

I must admire, the vision and creative mind, gifted by God to you. You present all the things so beautifully, that only a classic vision-holder can get into it. Just another masterpiece... keep it up
