Create an realistic proportionated Dunkin` donuts box using the grid in Photoshop CS5, rectangle tools , skew and many other tools in this complex photoshop tutorial.
Hello, in this tutorial you are going to learn the steps to create a donut box, so start off with a new document 600×600 pixels like below.
Because we will have to build a box we will need a grid to obtain the best proportion. Go to View-Show-Grid and then go to Edit-Preferences-Guides,Grids & slices… and modify the settings for the grid Gridline every 100 pixels, subdivisions 2.
Let`s make the front of the box, create a new layer and set the foreground colour to white. Grab the rectangle tool with the settings below and make a shape like below sized 6 columns and 3 rows.
We want the box to have a little perspective so go to Edit-Transform-Skew grab the right top corner of the white box part and drag it up like in the image below:
For the left part of the box create a new layer , set your foreground colour to pink and with the same rectangle tool make a shape like below:
Go to Edit-Transform-Skew and drag the corners until you have the same result like mine.
Let`s make the interior of the box, for that set the foreground colour to a cardboard brown and on a new layer pick the rectangular tool and make a shape like below starting from one corner of the white part of the box.
Go to Edit-Transform-Skew and take the steps below.
In all the steps you have to grab the corner marked with a X and drag it to the intersection of the white and pink parts.
Let`s take care of the cover of the box. Starting from the left corner make a shape like below sized 6 columns and 4 rows.
It`s time for skew. Again Edit-Transform-Skew and take the steps shown in the pictures below by dragging the corners marked with X in the directions the arrows points.
We have to make a small retouch. So grab the poligonal marquee tool , make a selection like below and cut it(Ctrl+x).
For this part we will use the Rounded rectangual tool. Create a new layer , set a white foreground colour and make a shape like below.
With the rectangular marquee tool make a selection like below an cut it(Ctrl+x).
Let`s put it in it`s place so go to Edit-Transform-Skew and drag it like below.
We have finished the box itself, please name and position the layers like I did.
Select the “left” layer and add it a gradient overlay with the settings below.
On the “front layer” add a gradient with the settings below.
Change the colour of the “inside” layer to the same brown colour from the cover.
With the “inside” layer selected grab the burn tool with the settings below and brush at the intersection with the “cover” layer and a bit on the other edges.
Let`s create donut. Create a new group and name it donut, and on the new group create a new layer, and with the circle marquee tool create a shape like below and fill it with a soft yellow.
Add a bevel and emboss with the settings below.
Let`s make the topping of the donut. Make a new layer and a smaller circle inside the first circle.
Add it a bevel and emboss with settings like below.
To add some sprinkles to the donut make many circles with the rounded marquee tool and add them the same bevel and emboss settings like above. We have finished the donut.
Using variations of colours and sprinkles make different types of donuts and place them in the box.
