    [-Graphics-] Making a Backdrop

    Post by Reisen on Wed May 30, 2012 10:02 pm



    Hai guise! Again, again. While I was bored to death, I thought of an idea on making a backdrop tutorial. This time, it's just forest. Yes, forest. Hope you guys like it. And I almost forgot, I am using Photoshop for this. So it may not apply to other image-editing programs.
    Beware of sucky explanation

    Just follow the steps and you'll probably create your one awesome backdrop! Let's start shall we?

    -Step 1-
    Of course, we'll need to map out the floor first. My desired backdrop size would be the regular 544x416 size. (Credits to COAD tileset btw)
    Spoiler:

    -Step 2-
    After that, we will distort the image. (CTRL + T) Distort it until it looks like a floor to you.

    Result:

    -Step 3-
    Now we apply a Gradient Overlay on your floor and set its layer mode to Overlay. Settings seen below.
    Spoiler:

    -Step 4-
    We will now add a background. Any background is fine. Make sure it is behind the floor layer.
    Spoiler:

    -Step 5-
    Make a new layer and click Apply Image. (Image > Apply Image) It can be seen in the navigation bar. (It's for placing the Lens Flare)
    Spoiler:

    -Step 6-
    Now we'll add the sun. Click Lens Flare (Filter > Render > Lens Flare). Set until satisfied.
    Spoiler:


    Result:


    -Step 7-
    Just add in some more details to your backdrop and you're done! (Make sure your actors are placed on the right coordinates though.
    Spoiler:

    And we're done! :) If you still want to add more effects, make sure to experiment! >:3 I-M-A-G-I-N-A-T-I-O-N *rainbowswoosh* +_+

    I hope this helped you guys and I also hope my explaining wasn't that bad. 3: Regardless of that, happy backdrop making! XD
