here this is the final image of Wheel Gear Manipulation in Photoshop which is we are going to design in this tutorial
Are you hungry for new tutorials how to create objects in Photoshop? Ok, I have one interesting tutorial for you.
Ok, let’s start! Create a new document sized 500×500 pixels. Drag a linear gradient with colors of #eaf8fb and #d0dee1 as shown on a picture below. It will be background for putting gear wheel on it.
After that start with creating gear wheel. Select Shape Tool and choose on of standard Photoshop shapes
Designing Gear Wheel in Photoshop
and draw out it in the middle of our canvas with white color.
Then reduce height about 60% for this shape and rasterize it with Layer > Rasterize > Shape:
Load selection of shape with Select > Load Selection and fill it with Grey to transparent gradient on the same layer (use color of #6d848c).
Remove selection with Ctrl+D. Now, we should add lower base and process lateral surface texture. Duplicate current layer with Ctrl+J and move lower layer 20 pixels down.
Then use the Polygonal Lasso Tool to connect the top edges and bottom edges of the gears with selection and fill it with whatever color you want.
After that deselect chosen area with Ctrl+D and apply Color Overlay (link to 08) layer style for current layer.
