In this tutorial we will create a beautiful and elegant photo-realistic metallic logo in Photoshop.
Program: Photoshop CS5
Approximate time: 2o – 25 Minutes
Resources: Just our very own Photoshop
Before we go ahead with the tutorial, let’s have a look at the final result.
To view in full size click on the demo button.
Start your Photoshop CS5 and open a new document of 800x800px.
Now we will fill our background with grey #949191-black#1D1C1C gradient.
Follow the given image below for the radial gradient direction.
Now go to Filter->Noise->add Noise.
Set the Amount 7.16%, check on Gaussian and Monochromatic as shown below.
Now add another layer and fill it with color#151414 and reduce its opacity to 20%.
Now select the smudge tool and make its strength 12% and choose a 10 px round brush for it. Then smudge the edges a bit as shown below.
Okay it’s time to add our text on the background. Make a new layer, select type tool then select the Lucida Calligraphy font, 72 pt (or bigger if you want). Now type your logo text like I did “Websoulz” with white color #ffffff. Now select Warp Text, Select the Style Arc, Horizontal and bend it +12%. Follow the settings as shown below.
Now right click on the text layer and go to blending options then select “Stroke”. Choose the color black #000000 and make the size 1px and keep the opacity to 100%.
Now select Drop Shadow and make settings according to the image given below.
Now duplicate the text layer and right click on the copied layer then go to blending options and select Bevel and Emboss. Make the settings shown in the image below.
Now add the ring (I’ve used a ring brush), repeat the process we did with text layer.
I’ve added a bird shape (a brush I’ve made myself). You can select the shape for your logo of your own choice. Again repeat the text layer process to make it look like made of metal.
I’ve added a couple of lines or shapes under the text and made them metal like repeating the same process we did with text layers. There you have it, our photo-realistic metallic logo is complete.
