for a coupon I want to pin a text field that looks like a fabric patch on the background. For this I have integrated a long pin to hold the patch in place. Now it all looks a bit flat, because the entrance and exit of the pin is very unrealistic. Therefore I ask the question, how you would design this. The style goes in the direction of clipart, so should not be photorealistic. I already tried to work with certain filters to get wrinkles but that didn't really work.
Thanks for the help!
Can you post a screen shot? Off hand, without seeing it, I would say you need to use a displacement map.
Here it is 🙂 I know its not really good, im still learning. Thanks for helping
You need to start with what actually happens. It can be a lot of work to fake it in Photoshop, but your design is unrealistic because it isn't where a pin would actually be.
1. The pin is entirely under the patch. It doesn't hold it on at all
2. The pin is entire on top of the background. It isn't held to the background.
3. The text Naehen is actually on top of the pin. This doesn't really make sense, best to just avoid the overlap.
Play with a pin and a patch and photograph or sketch the reality.
Also: you have three elements each either sewn or hemmed, and one pin. You either need to pin all of them, or not have a hem on the one you are pinning.
thanks a lot for your help. What you say totally makes sense, I think I will change the pin and get rid of the hem in this case since the Pin is some sort of an eye catcher I guess. Thanks again 🙂
You need to add some light and shadow to the tag and the underlying fabric to give the impression that it is pinned on.
This is just a quick rough idea of it -- if I were doing this for final output, I would pin a tag to a piece of fabric, and look at how the folds created light and shadow, and then do a simplified version on the final piece.
Hey, I really love it. Did you simply use a brush for this or a filter? I'd love to do it as told y´by you but how?
I painted the light and shadow on separate layers, blurred them and changed the opacity until I liked how it looked.
The white layers I set to Luminosity, and the black ones I left at Normal
