Adobe Photoshop Very Simple Tutorial: Designing a Melon

Adobe Photoshop






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.





  1. Using Elliptical Marquee Tool, make a round selection.
  2. Fill the selection with 50% Gray.
  3. Copy that color for background. Then pick a near-yellow color for foreground.
  4. Apply to the selection Texture > Stained Glass.
  5. Adjust Cell Size and Border Thickness to create meshes. Minimize Light Intensity.
  6. Switch colors and bring 50% to the foreground.
  7. Apply to the selection Sketch > Plaster to make meshes more striking.
  8. Duplicate the layer.
  9. For the bottom layer, add a layer style. Enable Bevel and Emboss and Texture to decorate the surface.
  10. Finally, use Adjustments > Hue/Saturation to colorize the surface.
  11. As for the top layer, lower opacity.
  12. Combine two layers into one.
  13. Apply to the layer Distort > Ripple.
  14. The last step is to apply to the layer Distort > Sherize.
