Umbrella Corporation logo

December 23rd, 2008 by ART-D Posted in Adobe Photoshop, Designing

   

The Umbrella Corporation is a fictional bioengineering pharmaceutical company appearing in the Resident Evil series of survival horror games by Capcom and in its film adaptions. In this Adobe Photoshop tutorial we will create Umbrella Corporation logo.

For the beginning create a new file (File>New) of 1280×1024 px and 72 dpi. Using the Paint Bucket Tool (G), fill the new layer with black color.

Next we’ll represent a kind of geometrical figure, like the next one, applying the Pen Tool (P).

Make several copies of the last made element, placing the copies the way you may see below. The copies may be done, pressing the combination of buttons (Ctrl+J). The turning over and the elements’ corrections may be done with (Ctrl+T).

    Hi I hope this helps.. Click polygon tool (under the rectangle tool. and in the top bar where it say sides put 3. this will make it draw a triangle. and draw a triangle. after that click add anchor point tool (under the pen tool submenu) and click right in the middle of the horizontal line of the triangle. (this will add an anchor point in the middle of the path. after that click the direct selection tool (the white arrow) (under path selection tool) now using that tool click on the anchor point you just added and pull it down. this will make the curve you needed.
    Thanks

    Step 2: make the triangle with three points using the pen tool. To add a curve on the top of the triangle just add a fourth point on the line between the top two points of the triangle. You do this by clicking anywhere on that path line with the pen tool. Click down on that point will holding option (or alt) a drag that point either LEFT or RIGHT (depending on the direction that you created the triangle) which makes this point a handle. Now you can drag that handle down to make a curve.
