How to make frees style wallpaper

In this Photoshop tutorial we will create a totally free style wallpaper for today, so we will be sketching a shape with basic brush I guess and then overlay it with bright colors.



So let’s create a document:

Start to develop the shape – twist and turn to find the best compositing – flip the image a lot of times. Because the eye gets used to what you do for some time: specially the abstract shapes.

I’ve decided to transform the shape and leave it like so.

Then I’ve created the copy of this shape and make it way ore bigger.

…and set the layer blending mode to exclusion.



Now create a layer underneath all the layers that you used till now.

I’ve added a little bit of drop shadow to the shape layer – the opacity of the shadow is 20 % – the color is black, the distance and spread is 2 and 3.
