What You’ll Be Creating In today’s tutorial, I’m going to show you how to easily create a spring banner. You will draw birds, a bow and floral branches using basic shapes, and learn how to add a new fill to an existing one. 1. Drawing the Body of the Bird Step 1 Create a new document ( Control-N ) and hit the Ellipse Tool (L) . We will first create the body of the bird. Set the stroke color at any color and with no fill. Create an ellipse. Then add a smaller one on the top. Take the Rectangle Tool (M) and draw a rectangle; this will form the neck of bird. To finish off the body shape, take the Direct Selection Tool (A) and make the lower part of the rectangle wider. In the end, the shape should look like in the following image.

What You’ll Be Creating Drawing a side view of something seems to be the most intuitive—without “perspective” it’s simple and fun. However, because of this simplicity, side-view drawings are also boring, and they make it very hard to present all the features of a character. In this short tutorial I’ll show you how to turn them into an interesting, 3D view with a simple Photoshop trick. 1. Prepare a Drawing in Side View Step 1 Open Adobe Photoshop. Create a New File ( Control-N ) and draw the character in a side view on a New Layer ( Control-Shift-Alt-N ). Step 2 Set the Opacity of the layer to 20% . Then create a New Layer . Step 3 On this new layer, draw a simplified version of the character. Use shapes that are as simple as possible, forgetting about the details for a while. 2. Build a Bounding Box Step 1 Every 3D object, no matter how detailed, can be inscribed into a box. Analogously, a side (2D) view can be inscribed into one side of that box—a rectangle. Let’s build it! Select the Rectangle Tool ( U ) and change its settings as shown below. Step 2 Draw any rectangle. Don’t worry about creating a new layer—for Shapes they’re being created automatically. Step 3 Use the Free Transform Tool ( Control-T ) to resize the rectangle and fit the character tightly inside. Hide the character (click the “eye” icon next to the layer). Step 4 Duplicate ( Control-J ) the rectangle and hide the original. Now we’re going to need some perspective rules. You can find them all in my live perspective article —they’re not as…
