In this tutorial we will make Sony Ericsson logo in about 20 minutes. Besides this you will understand how to save your time, changing layer styles and using the copies of your initial effect or form. So let’s go.
I will use a reference first, because the goal of this tutorial isn’t the creating of analyzing the creating idea.
You all probably remember the logo, but here is some reference to memorize the elements of the logo.
Now what they probably did if they use PS when the idea came out.
The idea is what really counts. I’ve created a circle using the shape tool, I’ve made it green. This circle will be the middle round element of the logo.
I’ve used only one layer style of this one.
This will be our shadow for now.
The reflection was done my soft brush. It is way more easier than to create shapes an blur them, especially when you have one of Wacom’s products.
So, just 1 stroke with soft white brush and there we have it.
But I will still BLUR
my reflection with any Blur Tool or filter.
While looking carefully of the logo back then I’ve actually saw that the reflection has some Yellowish green color. You will probably see it too.
So here we go. I’ve used color Overlay in my layer styles.
