Resources


The following resources were used during the production of this tutorial:





Step 1


Create a new file 600 x 450 pixels and fill the background with black. Then apply a radial gradient using a layer style with the center color #353535 and the edges black #000000.

Step 2


Create an oval shape layer that will become the base of our UFO.

Step 3


Go to Layer > Duplicate Layer and duplicate the oval but make this one a darker gray color.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 4


Now duplicate the layer again but distort its upper area as shown below.

Step 5



To create a polished metallic texture use an Angle and scale it up to 150%. Double click the gradient bar and open the Gradient Editor window.

Step 6


Use 2 tones of gray; #CCCCCC and #666666.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 7


Place the center of the gradient towards the top of the shape to reinforce the conic shape of the object.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 8



To create a 3D extrusion of the upper oval, use an inverted Inner Shadow (this means a –90º angle) with a black color and an Overlay blend. Drag the Choke to 100 and reduce the Size to zero.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 9


Include a thin Inner Glow that will allow the upper oval to receive the light reflected on its inner edge.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 10


Now let’s work on the central oval. Add a Gradient Overlay using the settings below and place the gradient just below the center of the shape.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]




Step 11


Use a white Drop Shadow to simulate a glow over the bottom oval.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 12


Apply the same layer style to the bottom saucer by copying and pasting the layer style.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 13


Reduce the opacity of the bottom layer’s gradient.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]




Step 14


Now we need to create an insert over the upper oval.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 15


Apply a gradient to this layer as shown below.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 16


Also add a stroke in gradient mode, using colors white #FFFFFF and grey #CCCCCC.



[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 17


Now it’s time to create a glass dome of our UFO. To do this draw a shape as shown below. Use a blue #1D408A color.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 18


Edit the anchor points as shown below. By pressing the Alt key (Windows) you can separate the anchor points and transform each segment of the oval independently.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 19


Let’s add some layer styles. First, a Satin effect with the values shown below.



[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 20


Now apply an inner glow using #1D408A.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 21


Add a radial gradient color #000000 and #76B9FD using Linear Dodge (Add).


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 22


Then add an inner shadow but used as a light over the dome. Use the values as shown below.



[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 23


Finally add a Drop shadow to lighten up the bottom edge of the dome.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 24


Now let’s add a reflection to the sphere. Use a smaller oval and edit the anchor points as shown below.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 25


Apply a layer style to the reflection and add a gradient that starts from #44A9FE and ends with black. Set the Blending Mode to Screen as shown below.



[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 26


Add an inner shadow using the values shown below.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 27


Download the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Logo in EPS or, if you prefer Twitter, you can download it from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] as well.



[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 28


Open the vector logo directly into Photoshop. This will open a raster.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]




Step 29


Use the settings below to set the logo to a larger size.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 30


Make a selection of the letter "f." Once it is selected go to Edit > Copy o Cmd + C.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 31


Paste the letter "f" onto the canvas and reduce its size to fit within the sphere.



[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 32


Apply a gradient as shown below.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 33


Create an illusion of 3D by adding a small stroke as shown below.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 34


Intensify the stroke using Bevel & Emboss.



[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 35


Apply an inner glow using to the "f" as shown below.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 36


Use the dome to hide part of the "f" by selecting the path and by converting it into a selection.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 37


Return to the Layers palette and mask the letter.



[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 38


Hide all the effects inside the mask by clicking the “Layer Mask Hides Effects” in the layer styles dialog box.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 39


Use different brushes to paint the perimeter lights depending on their distance. Try to make them as symmetrical as possible.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 40


Add an Outer Glow using #0099FF.



[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 41


Group all the layers in a folder.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 42


Name the folder.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 43


Duplicate the folder to keep a safe copy of your work.



[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 44


Convert the group into a Smart Object or select the option Merge Groups. The aim is to have the whole UFO on one layer so we can reduce the size without affecting the proportion of the layer styles.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 45


Reduce the UFO to 65% of its original size and place it as shown below.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 46


Now create the ray of light that the UFO will project onto the floor. To do this, draw a rectangular shape layer with the same width as the dome.



[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 47


Edit the anchor points of the shape layer as shown below.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 48


Add an anchor point to make a curve as shown below.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 49


Convert the vector into a selection using the Paths Palette.



[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 50


Soften the selection by going to Select > Modify > Feather.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 51


Set the Feathering to 3 px.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]




Step 52


Paint inside the selection with more intensity near the source of light (the UFO). And with the same softened selection technique, paint the floor of the scene.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 53


Now add light to the floor.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 54


Add the following [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] to our artwork. Or find another one that you feel appropriate.



[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 55


Cut it out from its background and reduce its size as shown below.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 56


Create a shadow of the character by duplicating, inverting, blurring, and distorting it as shown below.


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Step 57


Download this [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and include it in our composition.



[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Conclusion


For some finishing touches, apply a drop shadow to our text with the color set to #0099FF and its blending mode set to screen. Then add an Outer Glow with its Blending Mode set to Linear Dodge. For the Background, paint a blue glow to give the icon more visual appeal.
