Have you ever tried so much with your photoshop things?
Have you ever download how to made the artwork with a large mount of megabytes?
Here I am try to save your internet quota, although I am not the Avengers tough! :D
1. GETTING STARTED
Sure, switch on your desktop/ laptop / pc or whatever it is to create the works, and choose photoshop, beside on microsoft excel! :P
2. DECIDE THE TEXT
I choose this ‘500 Days of Summer’ text, you can make your own text. You can pick the type of fonts that you like, with large amount of fonts free download, you can make your own style too :)
3. CUSTOMIZE YOUR TEXT
Try to make your text a little bit customized!
WHY? just in case looking more creative and eye catching!
4. CUSTOMIZE THE COLOR
Hundred of thousands colors you can pick, try more color combination for your own
5. MAKE THE SHADOW
Make the shadow for your text, I choose blue to make pop art style
6. MAKE AND POSITIONING THE SHADOW
Put your ‘BLUE TEXT’ behind the ‘RED TEXT’
WHY? because it used for shadow like I told you before.
you need to rasterize the ’BLUE TEXT’ first, it used to make text into layer
7. MAKE SHAPE
Click ‘Rectangle Tool’ (U) to create the shape, then pick the color by your own style.
8. CUSTOMIZE THE SHAPE
WHY? People never ask you to do it, but people like you even more when you creative. Simple isn’t?
9. THE SHAPE

10. CUSTOMIZED THE SHAPE PART 2
WHY? Why ask? :D
11. CREATE ANOTHER TEXT
Create another text on your artwork, this part is needed in case to make more effective and creative the artwork is. Choose your own text, for example I use the tittle of Original Soundtrack from 500 Days of Summer film.
12. COMPLETING THE ARTWORK
Completing your artwork by copied the previous text and shape that have been made before. Repeat, Choose and Customized it.
13. COLORIZED THE BACKGROUND
It’s good to see object with color, better than only plain white.
To make the artwork begin oldies, you have to put the pattern on it. Here I use old-rusty-metal pattern. You can choose the pattern with every pattern that you like! be creative!
WHERE? find pattern by google, save it to your device and placed to the artwork
WHAT? what kind of pattern that will suitable? this is depend on your artwork style; every pattern are possible, but not of those pattern are suitable :)
15. APPLY PATTERN
To apply pattern on artwork you have to following some steps :
16. FIXING AND EDITING
WHY? this steps allow you to make editable layer for the next steps.
NOTICE : this part are IMPORTANT, for your best I suggest you to copy all of the layer first before edited and converted to smart object. If you did some mistake, then you still have the original layer :)
Editing the smart object with ‘Eraser Tool’, this step useful on create the ‘old effect’. If your ‘Brush Present’ didn’t have the model, you can search and download on google, remember to download the ‘Brush Present’ with .ABR file.
This is the picture after I applied the ‘Eraser Tool’
17. MORE EFFECT
This steps didn’t really important, this steps only give cosmetics on the artwork. You know cosmetics use for? it’s make the the artwork more ‘beautiful’ and nice to see :)
