Make a Cool Vector Wallpaper in Photoshop

Making vector wallpapers in Photoshop is one of the easiest things a beginner can do in Photoshop. The reason for that is because you’re only going to use silhouetted objects so you don’t have to worry about things like color matching, shadows, illumination and things like that. So, let’s see how it’s done.

Step 1

Create a new document 2000×1600 pixels. Get the Gradient Tool (G) and select 2 tones of orange (or any color you want, really), one of them darker and the other one brighter and draw a gradient as shown in the image.

Step 2

You can now start making the grass. I made the ground plain but you can create some hills if you want. Select the default Photoshop grass brush and after you deactivate Color Dynamics paint the grass. Go over the same areas until you cover it and you only see the tips of the grass.

Step 3

You can now make the vector sun rays using the Polygonal Lasso Tool (L) and make a selection like shown in the image. Then fill that selection with white and change the layer’s blend mode to Overlay and reduce its Opacity to about 10-20%. uicker.

Step 4

Add the silhouette of a tree. Again, you have 2 options, use a PNG image like me or download some tree brushes. If you use a stock image, place the tree on your canvas and use a Hue/Saturation adjustment and reduce the lightness to -100. I used an adjustment layer but in this case you can use the adjustment from the menu Image>Adjustments>Hue/Saturation. But keep in mind that if you do it from the menu, you will not be able to undo this adjustment once you close Photoshop (that’s why I use adjustment layers instead).

Step 5

You can create a more interesting scene if you add some leafs falling from the tree. For that you can use the default leaf Photoshop brush. Make sure you decrease Scattering Count to 1 and increase Minimum Diameter to 50% on Shape Dynamics.

Step 7

As for the people’s silhouettes you can use a vector, a brush or a stock image. I used a stock image which I downloaded from deviantART. I used the Pen Tool (P) to subtract the couple from the background and then I used a Hue/Saturation adjustment to reduce the Lightness to -100 and create the silhouette. If you have a brush or vector is a lot quicker though.

Download the cloud brushes and paint a few clouds with white.

In photoshop, keep selecting all the background until you have all of you want to be transparent...Try deleting background and see if the underlying backgroundis already transparent. (If your final image is easy to select, select it directly.). If initially selecting the BACKGROUND, and you need to get a transparent bckgrnd, inverse the selection so the main subject is selected. You may already have a Transparent background (you'll see the checkerboard).
If you don't already have an underlying transparent background, Copy the selected imaged.
