    Faux Render


    Ever wanted to create one of those cool render images that are all the rage these days, but don't want to shovel out the time learning a new 3D program (ie 3d smax, cinema4d) not to mention to heafty price tags on these software packages. Well after reading this tutorial you will be able to create a faux render that looks like it came straight from one of those expensive 3d rendering software packages but in reality was completely generated within photoshop. All you need is a little imagination.

    Step 1.)
    Start a new document of any size, l'm using 800x600 here, and fill the background with black (#000000).

    Step 2.)
    Press 'D' on your keyboard to reset your colors to black (#000000), and white (#FFFFFF)


    Create a new layer, and make a square selection similar to this one, using the rectangular marquee tool:






    Step 3.)
    Get out the gradient fill tool and set it up like so:
    Mode set to Difference


    Also try adding in a few gradients with the Linear Gradient tool as well with these settings:
    Mode set to Difference


    Now begin to fill the selection with a few gradients, clicking and dragging in different areas of the selection until you have an interesting look:






    Step 4.)
    Press CTRL + D on your keyboard to deselect the area.
    Now go to Filter->Distort->Wave and apply these settings:
    You may need to press "randomize" a few times until you get again, and interesting look.


    Result:






    Step 5.)
    Now create a new layer, again with the rectangular marquee tool make a selection similar to this:


    Get out the gradient tool again, and make sure the settings are still the same:
    Mode set to Difference


    Also try adding in a few gradients with the Linear Gradient tool as well with these settings:
    Mode set to Difference



    Now begin to fill the selection with a few gradients, clicking and dragging in different areas of the selection until you have an interesting look just like we did before:






    Step 6.)
    Press CTRL + D on your keyboard to deselect the area, go to Filter->Distort->Wave and apply these settings:


    Change the blending mode of this layer to "Screen" and drop the opacity down to around 83 percent:


    Result:






    Step 7.)
    Create another layer, and make a selection similar to this one using the rectangular marquee tool:


    Get out the gradient tool again, and make sure the settings are still the same:
    Mode set to Difference


    Also try adding in a few gradients with the Linear Gradient tool as well with these settings:
    Mode set to Difference


    Result:






    Step 8.)
    Press CTRL + D on your keyboard to deselect the area, go to Filter->Distort->Wave and apply these settings:


    Drop the opacity of this layer down to around 85 percent:


    Result:






    Step 9.)
    Now you can continue to add a few more of these "blotches" if you want, but to keep this tutorial readable l'm going on to the next part of the faux render process...
    Merge each of your layers together (except that background layer) by pressing CTRL + E on the keyboard.






    Step 10.)
    To add color to the faux render, press CTRL + U on the keyboard and apply the following HUE/SATURATION settings (or choose your own color(s)):






    Step 11.)
    Press CTRL + J on your keyboard to duplicate this layer, and change the blending mode of the duplicate layer to "overlay" and drop the opacity of this layer down to 70 percent:


    Result:


    Here's what l came up with after adding a background and a few little tech brushes (brushes courtesy of www.GreyCobra.com). They are available for free download here.



    Just have fun and explore different settings and blending options.
