Welcome, today you’ll learn how to make this awesome signature :
Make a new document 400 by 110 and find a nice looking stock and past it, re-size if need !

Now take your brush tool, and in a nice color brush on the right side of the tag, use for this a soft round brush around 70 – 100 pixels big .

Set the layer to Screen

Past again your original stock, and find a nice looking part of it and move it to the right side of the tag, then erase the rest of the tag, but leave the part u want, remember leave the part at the right side of the tag.

Again, past your original render, find a cool place of it, and move it to the middle of the tag, then set the layer to lighten and erase everything but leave the part in the part u want in the middle .

Make a new layer, take out your brush tool, and make a dot on the left side of the tag, use the same color that u have used to brush on the right side of the tag in the second step of this tutorial. Set the layer to linear dodge.

Make again a dot, but this time make the dot in the middle of the tag, and make it in white color, use for this your brush tool and a soft round brush around 300 – 320 pixels big. Set the layer to overlay at 75% opacity

Again, past your original stock and find a nice looking part, move it to the left bottom corner and erase the rest of the stock

Make again a dot, make the dot under renders head, use the same color as before and set the layer to screen.

Add photo filter ‘’ layer – new adjustment layer – photo filter ‘’ and use this one :

Erase the parts u don’t like. As for the erase you need to use brush tool because it’s a adjustment layer, u take your brush tool, u take out the soft round brush and u brush in black on the parts u want that it erase.

Add color balance ‘’ layer – new adjustment layer – color balance ‘’ and use this one :

Leave the Shadows and Highlights all on 0. Erase the parts u don’t like .

Make a white dot by using your brush tool and a soft round brush around 100 – 150 pixels big, make the dot on the right side of the render, set it to overlay.

Make a new layer and fill it with black, then take out your brush tool and make some random dots on that layer, then smudge some of the dots .

Set the layer to Color Dodge

Make a new layer, and make again dots around the render, then apply this blending options :



Leave the layer at normal .

Apply image on a new layer ‘’ image – apply image ‘’ and then move it a bit up, like 10pixels or 5 pixels up, just a little bit .

Apply image on a new layer, then with your rectangular marquee tool select a part of that layer, copy past it, and then delete the applied layer, and move the copy past part of that pervious layer to the left top corner.

Now add gradient map ‘’ layer – new adjustment layer – gradient map ‘’ and use this one :

Set to Multiply at 15% opacity.

Apply image on a new layer, and then take out your blur tool and with a soft round brush blur some parts of the tag for better depth.

Apply image on a new layer and take out your sharpen tool and sharp some parts of the tag that u think will look good after sharpen it.

On a new layer brush with black on the left side of the tag, set the layer to Soft light at 33% opacity.

With your dodge tool and a soft round brush, make the dot under renders head a bit lighter .

Now you’re done!! yeys!!!
