Note: This tutorial was taken off another forum, but reworded. I just found this a neat tutorial, so I wanted to share it. Reference: If you stumbled upon this thread looking to make a awesome looking signature, you came to the right place! Before you start, make sure you have Photoshop CS2/CS3/CS4. First, open a new document as shown below with a picture. Width: 500px Height: 100px This suppose isn't a definite must, but this is the size I will use today. Before you do anything, make sure your colours are set to default, foreground black and the background white. You can easily set this by pressing the letter 'D' on the keyboard. Next, select the Paint Bucket tool as shown below. Once using the Paint Bucket, press on the canvas once to make it black. Now, for the brush package I'm going to we're going to use for this tutorial, . Now select the brushtool in photoshop, and go to settings, click the little arrow, and then click on Load Brushes as shown on the picture below. Now go to the directory wheres you saved the brushset, mark it, and press Load. You should now be able to use the brushes, as shown below. notice the size of the brush is pretty big, but just leave that untill you get more experienced with using these brushes. Note: I forgot to mention, we'll be using THIS brush: Now create a new layer, and be sure to mark it. Make sure your foreground color is set to white, so the brushstrokes you do will be white color. Now simply click once with your left mouse button on your new layer, to use the nice brush. Dont "Overbrush" it too much, few clicks are enough with this brush. Here is what I got: Now create a new layer and set the Blending Mode to Color. Set your foreground color to any color you like, Im just gonna be using a normal blue. Pick a normal brush, with the size of 100 and Hardness of 0, settings (opacity, mode etc.) should still be the same. Now start coloring the new layer you did, which has the Blending Mode set to "Color". You will notice that parts of the brush and background becomes the color you choose, and it gives a nice effect. Now switch to another nuance of your color, and brush a few spots, to make it look better. Here is what I got out of it: Now select the layer where you did the abstract brushes on and duplicate the layer by pressing Ctrl + J. You now have "Layer 1" and "Layer 1 Copy" above "Layer 1" It should look like this: That's pretty much it for the background, experience around a little, to make it look like you want it to be ;) Add some text and other extra's if you want :) This is what I did: - Added some text with a gradient and a small shadow on. - Added a little shine effect on the top half of the signature. - Added a 1px black stroke around the whole signature. Here is my outcome: Warning: Before anyway says I ripped half of the original guide, I admit I did, as I had to go asap.
