Sunny Glossy Logo
This photoshop tutorial will show you how I created the logo to TutorialBeach.com
Create a new RGB document.
Background and foreground color do not really matter as these are going to change anyway.
The sun I used is from a font calles "whether" which you can get at dafont.com
Use a bold font for the text.
Now you need to apply some layer styles..
Bevel and Emboss:
A Gradient Overlay:
(This is the gradient I used:)
And finally a stroke:
It will look something like this now:
Now we're going to work on the glossy effect.
Now you have to use the pen tool to create a wavy shape like this:
(I colored the background so you can see the shape better)
Hold down CTRL and click the text layer's icon to select the texts shape (the shape layer is still selected)
Go to Select --> Modif --> Contract and contract the selection by 2px.
Invert the selection (CTRL - SHIFT - I) and hit del to delete everything that's not inside the selection.
Set the shape layer's opacity to something like 30 percent.
You have a glossy logo now and are almost done:
This last step is optional:
Fill the background with a nice gradient like this:
And that's it, there's your sunny glossy logo.
