In this tutorial I will present how to create an amazing colorful heart using photoshop and we use attractive bokeh effect in a heart shape with nice a blur effect in the background of the illustration and other composition enhancement to bring more attraction and focus on the subject image. So, why not have a try…
Open your photoshop and create a new layer (600×500 px), fill it with black.
Create a new blank layer, choose soft brush tool, 500px, color f3606e to spot on the middle of the pic:
Create a new blank layer again, use hard brush, 30px with color f3606e to draw on the pic and then lower opacity to 60%
Right click this layer, choose Blending Options – Outer glow:
Create a new blank layer, choose hard brush tool, 85px, color f3606e to spot over the previous brush spot. Lower opacity to 20% and apply Gaussian blur with 4px we have:
Merge two these brush spot layers (in my Layers pallete, it’s layer 2). Duplicate layer 2 then merge them we get layer 2 copy. Duplicate it four times, resize and change the color of some by applying Color overlay from Blending options, set the position like this:
After that, merge all these layers.
Create a new layer, use custom heart shape tool with the option like the pic below :
Draw on the pic like this:
Create a new blank layer, choose brush tool, hard brush, 30px and press F5 to adjust settings:
Then choose color f3606e to start tracing the path of heart shape, and don’t let the brush out much of shape:
Create a new blank layer, choose brush tool, press F5 and set Scattering (keep all old brush setting in previous step)
Use brush with different colors to paint within the shape ( don’t let it out of shape), use light color for the center of shape:
Come back to heart shape layer, choose PenTool, then right click this shape, choose Delete path:
