Still on Creating a Customized Product

Creating a Customized ProductDo I should hire a professional designer to create my ad just for me? Hell No!!! Designing is a learned craft and of course I do believe that everyone has creativity. What most pro-designers (defined as anyone who writes an advertisement for now, lol) do is... dig and cultivate their insane creativity.

Really awesome ad designers aren't afraid to come up with dozens of bad ad ideas. I know I ain't good enuf on this, but still.. I ain't like that. I, my self know from experience that it's often the ones that don't work that will spark the idea for the one that will work.

OK.. Enuf with the chit-chat.. lmao! I'm gonna show you the untold part of how you create a customized product after coloring your bottle yesterday.. Still remember with the steps I wrote there?? There you go..!!!


Step 4 - Reflection

After all that base shading color for the bottle, I added another two shading layers but this time I'm going to be using a darker shade of gray with a color number of #a2a2a2.


Creating a Customized Product


Including the top and the bottom part of the main bottle, I think.. the shading at the upper of the bottle would be a 'lil less dark in comparison to the lower parts. So I turn down the Fill Opacity of the upper shade more than the bottom to about 51%.


Creating a Customized Product


Next, I'm gonna add the white strip flow across the bottle as a reflection or something. First, add a new layer and name it as Whitestrip. Pick the Pen tool (P) to create a shape just like shown below.


Creating a Customized Product


Make sure it is curves down elegantly and smooth enuf to emphasize the contour of the bottle. Once you've defined it, Hit Right - Click and select Make Selection. Press Ctrl + Backspace to fill it with White color. Than press Ctrl + D to Deselect.


Creating a Customized Product


Warning : Press Ctrl + Backspace to fill the selection with White color will works properly if you see the Black and White as your Foreground and Background color (display) on the flying menu at the left side of your workspace of Photoshop.


OK.. Unless you arrange your Cup layer and its contents below the Main layer, you'll find the chaos on your image. Don't worry.. it's all about how to arrange it into each place well.

Drag your Whitestrip to above the Main bottle (above the Gradient Fill and the Fill color adjustment #a2a2a2 bottom and upper) like I show you with this chaotic screen shot, lol.


Creating a Customized Product


Now you know exactly how your arrangement layer is after you drag the Whitestrip.


Creating a Customized Product


Next.. you're gonna need to do the Clipping Mask step on that layer to hide the unneeded part of the white color covered the Main bottle. Look at all my layers there!


Hire Me?!


Creating a Customized Product


After doing that favo step (Clipping Mask), turn down the Fill Opacity into your need :) Mine is around 30-50%.

Alternative : You can simply change your Blending Mode without changing the Fill Opacity, change it into Soft Light.
