Hi. This is Marty from Blue Lightning TV.
This is Part 2 of my tutorial showing how to create own, cool-looking, vintage, vehicle logo. Picking up from where we left off, reduce the Fill of your logo to 0%. Making the Fill 0 makes the logo invisible, but will retain the visibility of all the effects that we’ll
be adding to it. Double-click on the thumbnail of your logo to open its Layer Style window.
Click Gradient Overlay and change the Blend Mode to Color Dodge. If your gradient bar
isn’t black to white, open your gradient presets and click the black white thumbnail. The Style
is Linear. Make the Angle: 90 degrees and drag the Scale slider all the way to the right.
Click Bevel & Emboss. The Style is Inner Bevel and the Technique is Smooth. Make the Depth:
20%, the Direction: Up and the Size: 7 pixels. Soften is 0. Uncheck Global Light. Make the
Angle: 135 degrees and the Altitude: 37 degrees. Open the Gloss Contour presets and click the
double-ring thumbnail. Make the Highlight opacity:35% and the Shadow opacity: 100%.
Click “Contour”. Open the presets and click the half-round thumbnail. Change the Range
to 33%. Click Inner Glow. Change the Blend Mode to Linear Dodge and slide the opacity
to 100%. Click the color box and pick a medium color that compliments the color of your vehicle.
I’ll type in a medium blue: 3B8FED. Then click OK or press Enter or Return. Make the Choke:
80% and the Size: 6 pixels. Click Stroke. Make the Size: 1 pixel, the Position: Outside
and the Blend Mode: Screen. Click the color box and pick a rich color that that fits within
the color scheme of your logo. For mine, I’ll type in 1858FC. Click Drop Shadow. Change
its Blend Mode to Normal and click the color box. Pick a very dark shade of your color.
I’ll type in: 010103. Make the Opacity: 100%. Uncheck Global Light and make the Angle
90 degrees. The Distance is 5 pixels, the Spread is 100% and the Size is 10 pixels.
Then, click OK. Next, we’ll add a soft drop shadow. Make a copy of your logo by pressing
Ctrl or Cmd + J. Hide all the effects except Drop Shadow. Double-click Drop Shadow to see
it in the Layer Style window. Change its Blend Mode to Multiply and reduce its opacity to
25%. Make the Distance: 24 pixels, the Spread: 18% and the Size: 18 pixels. Then, click OK.
Next, we’ll add a reflection on the middle of the logo. Click the New Layer icon to make
a new layer. Ctrl-click or Cmd-click on the thumbnail of the logo to make a selection
of the inside of its shape. Go to Select, Modify and Contract. Contract it 6 pixels
and click OK or press Enter or Return. Press “Q” to make the selection into a quick mask.
Open your Pen Tool. We’ll create an arc path like you did earlier. Click to the left of
your logo approximately a third of the way up from its bottom. Release your cursor, go
to the right of your logo and press and hold Shift as you left-click to make a horizontal
path. Release your cursor and go to the middle. Press and hold Alt or Option as you left-click
to add an anchor point. Then, press and hold Ctrl or Cmd as you drag the anchor point up
approximately this much. Complete the work path surrounding the bottom of your logo.
Right-click directly on the path and click “Make selection”. We don’t want to feather
it, so type in 0 pixels. Press Ctrl or Cmd + Delete to fill it with the background color,
which is black and then press “Q” again to make the quick mask back into a selection.
Press “B” to open your Brush Tool and increase its opacity to 100%. Reduce the brush size
by pressing the left bracket key on your keyboard. Keep your brush mostly below the selection
and brush across your logo. Then, deselect it. Reduce its opacity to 70%. The last step
is to add a lens flare. To do this, first, make a composite snapshot of your image by
pressing Ctrl + Shift + Alt + E on Windows or Cmd + Shift + Option + E on a Mac. Then,
go to Filter, Render and Lens Flare. Make the Brightness: 80% and the Lens Type: 50-300mm Zoom. Drag the lens flare to a point on the top of your logo that’s vertically aligned
with the sunset. If you’re using a different background, drag the lens flare to any point
that looks good to you. Then, click OK or press Enter or Return. This is Marty from Blue Lightning TV. Thanks for watching!
