Magic Talisman

Hi. Today you will learn, how to create some magic element. We will show you how to create magoc talisman.
At the end of this tutorial you will create magic talisman, something like this:

So, lets start:

1: Create a new black
(or dark colored) 1024×768 image. Create a new layer. On this second
layer, use the ellipse tool ff and hold the shift-key to draw a circle. Make sure that the circle is
using paths ff so it will not color in the circle.

2: You now have a path
outline of a circle. Select the pen tool magic talisman,
right-click on the canvas and from the pop-up menu, select “Stroke
Path.” This will outline your path using whatever brush and color
you have selected. I would recommend using the hard round brush at 3
pixels. Right-click and select delete path.

3: Still using the pen
tool magic talisman,
select the Custom shape tool magic talisman and choose a magic talisman shape. I chose the bulls eye. Using whatever shape you selected, place
it somewhere inside the circle. The select “Stroke Path” as we
did before and delete the path.

Make MONEY!!

4: Now use the line tool magic talisman to make your design a bit more elaborate and original. Use a slightly
smaller pixel width than before, like 2 pixels. Duplicate the layer.
Select the bottom layer and go Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur 4 pixels.
With the top layer selected, go Layer > Merge Down.

5: Duplicated the
merged design layer and select the lower layer and go Filter >
Distort > Ripple
. Select a large ripple or about 750%. Now Filter
> Blur > Radial Blur
and make sure you select Zoom and
set the amount to 100. Duplicate that layer and set the upper distorted
layer to Vivid light. Merge all the layers except the black

6: Use the Move tool magic talisman on your design layer and go Edit > Transform > Distort. Move
about the circle until you have it in your desired position.

7: As a final touch, duplicate the layer and
set the lower layer to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur 8
pixels. Set the upper layer to Overlay and go Layer > Flatten Image.
Finally, use the Dodge tool magic talisman at
a brush size of 50 pixels and an exposure of 90% to highlight areas and
emphasize the glow. You now have a kick-ass surface for any character to
stand or sit on!
