In this tutorial, we’ll learn how to create beautiful lines of different shapes that you can add to any picture as shown below.
- Adobe Photoshop CS
- Guitar silhouette picture
Open the guitar silhouette picture in Photoshop and resize it to 1125 x 1500px by going to Image > Image Size.
Select the Brush Tool and open the Brush Panel by pressing F5. Select a 10px round hard brush with the following settings:
Create a new layer and make a straight line of white color by pressing Shift.
Go to Filter > Blur > Motion Blur and apply a blur with the values shown below.
Press Ctrl+J to duplicate the current layer. Now, select both the duplicate and original layers and press Ctrl+E to merge them.
Repeat the aforementioned process numerous times till you get a result like mine.
Resize the line as shown below by gong to Edit > Transform > Scale.
Duplicate the layer a couple of times and move each duplicate to the right to achieve the same effect as this:
Merge all the line layers into one and transform it by going to Edit > Transform > Scale.
Now, make a selection of the current layer by choosing Select > Load Selection.
Select the Gradient Tool, choose the Transparent Rainbow gradient and apply it on the left part of the selection.
Repeat the same process with the rest of the selection, but remember to leave some parts in white so that the line will seem more fractional.
Now, remove the selection by pressing Ctrl+D.
Make the line longer by going to Edit > Transform > Scale.
Transform the line as shown below by going to Edit > Transform > Warp.
You can transform the line however you want to.
You can also make different shapes as you can see below.
You can create more lines by following the aforementioned steps and placing them wherever you want to create different effects.
