I have seen lots of manipulating tutorial using fruits for their effects, so while surfing net got an idea how a apple with full of grasses, here this tutorial is full based on how to create a 3D Grassy Apple using simple Photoshop Technique.
For this effects you need high quality grass texture, below you can see the Final Output of this tutorial.
you can also go through by steps.
Let’s start up by creating a new document size of 1200 x 1000px resolution 300dpi and fill the background with White Color then grab the Pen Tool with Paths Mode and make an apple shape as demonstrated below.
Now by selecting the Pen Tool right click on the canvas choose make selection feathers to 0 and hit ok then go to menu File => Place choose you’re grass texture, now rasterize the texture layer (because it’ll be in smart filter mode) once you done with rasterize press Shift + Ctrl + I to invest the Selection and press delete key, and your image looks like this. (Name the layer to Apple)
Press Ctrl + D to deselect the selection then go to Layer => Layer Style => Inner Shadow and set the following settings as shown.
Now select Eraser Tool with Grungy brush and erase the area around it, then go to image => Adjustment => Hue/Saturation and set the Hue to 95, Saturation to 90 and Lightness to 1.(use Dodge Tool Highlight the area)
You’ll get like this.
Here we going to create pedicel for it so create a new layer name it as ‘Pedicel’ grab the Pen Tool and make a shape as shown, then go to Layer => Layer Style and set the following settings for it.
You’ll have something like this.
In this step we’ll create leaf, again make a new layer name it as ‘Leaf’ grab the Pen Tool and design a shape as shown and with the Soft Round Brush (Dark Green Color) draw some Margin then set the following Layer Styles to it.
Your image looks something like this.
create a new layer name it as ‘Shadow’ (don’t forget to create a new layer for every single effect because if your not satisfied with the effect you can go on by deleting layer) here grab the Grungy Brush Tool with green color and just paint on the pedicel to make it feel that it has come from inside, once you done with it grab the Soft Round Brush with Black Color and make shadow of leaf and pedicel on the apple, place with opacity. (This Step needs more trail and error)
Last and final step make a shadow of apple, create a new layer name it as “Apple Shadow’ then grab the Ellipse Tool with Fill Pixel Mode create an oval shape on bottom of the apple and go to Filter => Blur => Gaussian Blur radius around 25px. (You can also go through by adding some light yellow color on right and left side corner of the apple)(
So finally you should get something like this.
That’s it for this tutorial hope you enjoyed a lot and learnt something more then it confused.
