thus in this tutorial I will show you how to create the Captain America shield using Photoshop. The whole action is quite dim-witted and wo n’t take you more than 45 minutes .
Open Photoshop and create a new document. I am using 2600×2600 pixels. Fill the background layer with total darkness using the Paint Bucket Tool (G).
With the Ellipse Tool (U) create a traffic circle in the plaza of the document using red (#d51a37) for the color .
With the Magic Wand Tool (W) select the area of the circle and then add a new layer on exceed of the loss layer .
Fill the raw layer with white using the Paint Bucket Tool (G).
Go to Filter>Noise>Add Noise. Make sure you have total darkness and white for the background and foreground colors. Use 150% for the Amount, Gaussian for the Distribution and select Monochromatic.
With the pavilion selection still active go to Filter>Blur>Radial Blur. Use 40 for the Amount, Spin for the Blur Method and Best for the Quality.
Go to Image>Adjustment>Levels. Change the Input Levels using 103 for the black, 1.00 for the grey and 192 for the white inputs.
Change the Blend Mode to Darken at 100% Opacity.
repeat the same matter now to create the grey circle of the shield .
Repeate the same steps to create the 3 early circles and the leading. Notice that for each object I created the radial brush effect .
time to add some platonism to the harbor. first thing to do is use Layer Styles. Go to Layer>Layer Styles>Drop Shadow. Use white for the color, LInear Dodge (Add) for the Blend Mode, -4º for the Angle, 5 pixels for the Distance and 4 pixels for the Size. Also change the Contour for the one I am using in the image below.
Select Inner Shadow. Use Linear Burn for the Blend Mode, black for the color, 90% for Opacity, 45º for the Angle, 5 pixels for the Distance, 0% for the Choke and 3 pixels for the Size. Alos use the same Contour style I am using in the image below.
