My wife’s favorite fruit is melon. Last year, I had a friend ship a couple of very expensive melons all the way from Japan. One melon cost me some 50 bucks. When I opened a package, they were both half bad. These melons were for my beloved wife’s birthday. I didn’t have time to order new ones. So I did what I had to do, you know? I got on my iMac, launching Adobe Photoshop. In a matter of 4 minutes or so, I designed a melon for my wife.
The following tutorial shows easy steps to design a melon, using Adobe Photoshop CS2.
- Using Elliptical Marquee Tool, make a round selection.
- Fill the selection with 50% Gray.
- Copy that color for background. Then pick a near-yellow color for foreground.
- Apply to the selection Texture > Stained Glass.
- Adjust Cell Size and Border Thickness to create meshes. Minimize Light Intensity.
- Switch colors and bring 50% to the foreground.
- Apply to the selection Sketch > Plaster to make meshes more striking.
- Duplicate the layer.
- For the bottom layer, add a layer style. Enable Bevel and Emboss and Texture to decorate the surface.
- Finally, use Adjustments > Hue/Saturation to colorize the surface.
- As for the top layer, lower opacity.
- Combine two layers into one.
- Apply to the layer Distort > Ripple.
- The last step is to apply to the layer Distort > Sherize.
