Butterfly Wallpaper Design

April 7th, 2007 by ART-D Posted in Adobe Photoshop, Designing


A pretty popular thing this effect is. Requires knowledge of basic photoshop.

Create a new layer having 1024×768 px and 72 dpi. Select now the Rectangle Tool (U) to represent the background for the picture to be next.

Choose the Brush Tool (B) and represent the grass on a new layer (press the right button on the picture and selectCreate Butterfly Wallpaper Design in Photoshop CS)

Select two colors for the brush: CCDC4A and 7FB51B from the left panel, the way it is demonstrated in the next picture. Applying smooth motions, we have to represent the hills covered with the grass.

    your tutorial wasnt very detailed.. u didnt mention where u get the brush and didnt explain very well.. i dont even understand half of it.. stupid tutorial i reckon

    This is a great example of a bad tutorial. I followed exactly as it says and right from the outset my clouds looked nothing like the picture. I then added the grass which also looks different. The grass pictured looks much brighter and also looks like it has a gradient overlay of some sort not mentioned.
    When I got to the step that says ‘Applying the previous instrument (the brush ) represent now the train made of butterflies.’ I gave up. This is not even correct english. If you are going to teach people learn english first.

    The two colours for the yellow/green are not the same in CS5, I found that #cce15e and #8abc39 work perfectly :)!

    Awesome tut, maybe things could be a little clearer sometimes, but otherwise thanks!

    Really a bad tutorial. You do not mention about details

    I actually don’t think the tutorial isn’t so bad. I just had to play with the colors. She did say we needed some basic photoshop knowledge. I loved it because it taught me some creative ways to use tools that I hadn’t thought about before. Thanks!
