Hello friends, today I will teach you How to Create a Resident Evil Umbrella Corporation Logo in Photoshop. I’m a bit inspired today so before I sleep I create this design just for you guys. Many of us are waiting for Alice (Milla Jovovich) to fight against the evil umbrella corporation and all the people that transformed into undead. This fight will spread lots of bloods and awesomeness. Hahaha!!!
Oh Well, I’m sorry for being too much excited 😛 so let’s proceed to our tutorial. Share it Guys If you love this tutorial.
Open up your Adobe Photoshop Software and Create a New Document (ctrl + N). My configurations for this tutorial are: Width: 800px, Height: 600px, Resolution: 200px/inches. But you can change it for your preferences.
Create a New Layer (Shift + Ctrl + N) and named it background gradient, the color from the left side of the picture is # 000000 and on the right side color # 45494d. And apply this gradient to your gradient layer from bottom to top.
Here is the part where we are going to create our umbrella shape logo, create a new layer (Shift + Ctrl + N) and named it as Umbrella down Shape. Now we are going to use our Pen tool and select the Shape see the image below. So we can easily change the color of our shape, mine I set it up as color red with the Fill and stroke is none.
Use your pen tool to draw a cone triangle please refer to the image below. When you’re done duplicate this umbrella shape layer and rotate it upward then press Ctrl + G to group this two layer of shape and named the folder Top and Bottom, so the image should look like this. I hope you can catch up, if you have questions for this step just drop some comment for clarifications and I will answer it.
Wow, this will be the easiest step for this tutorial, duplicate your group folder and named it Left and Right. So now, you already have the same copy of your first two shape named Top and Bottom. What you’re going to do is to select the Left and Right folder Group and then use your Move Tool or press (V)
You should see by know your transform control points, if not check the Show Transform Controls so you can rotate the selected group of layer. See the image below.
If you do it well, you should come up like this. We are almost done; I can see already the umbrella shape look. Just duplicate again the group layer twice named it sideways one and sideways two or anything you want. And change the color of your shape to white and repeat again the process in step 4.
For this step we are going to add some rectangular effects in the background, I use Line Tool or press (Shift + U) to select the line tool in your toolbox it’s like a forward slash “/”. The Fill is set to none while the Stroke is set to #000000 color and the size of the line is 3px. And then start to create a line graph.
After you finish creating line graph, right the layer and add Blending Options. Click the Bevel & Emboss and set up the configuration as follow: Style: Pillow Emboss, Technique: Smooth, Depth: 231%, Direction: Up, Size: 8px, Soften: 0px.
Bevel & Emboss
Check The Stroke Checkbox and see the preset selection in the image below: Size: 3px, Position: Outside, Blend Mode: Normal, Opacity: 100%.
After you set up the blending modes for this rectangular shape place it under your umbrella logo, because we are using this for the background. See the image result for this step.
I duplicate the entire umbrella shape group folder so I have a backup for that because we are going to merge the entire umbrella layer, to merge the layer press Ctrl + E. Once you’re done right click the umbrella layer and click the Blending Options.
Please check all the images below for the options that I used.
For Bevel & Emboss Options
For Contour Options
For Stroke Options
For Inner Shadow Options
For the last Options Pattern Overlay, I use the pattern Texture Fill which is the default of adobe Photoshop cs6. I hope you have it all.
If you do it well, you should have an output image like this, Wow Awesome Shiny Effects Right? XD
To add some nice colors, I added three adjustment layer colors: Levels, Exposure and Photo Filter.
Voila. We are done!
