Are you trying to quit smoking? Tired of patches, gum, tablets, and other nicotine replacement therapies? Well, instead of giving in and smoking a cigarette, why not try creating one for a change? It keeps your twitchy fingers busy, helped me to quit smoking (or, at least, it got me started - I had to do the hard part myself). So fire up Photoshop, and see for yourself what wonders you can do with a bit of effort, patience, and willpower... :D
Step 1 - The Base
Step 2 - Texture
Then, control-click your 'filter' layer,
invert the selection and hit delete. Set the blending
mode of your 'noise' layer to color burn and set
to 6%. Create a new layer and do exactly the same as before,
but now scale it just a little. Control-click your base
layer, invert the selection and hit delete. Drag this
layer beneath your filter layer.
Step 3 - Making It Real
Step 4 - Dressing It Up
For the finishing touch, create a new layer and make a selection of about 2px wide (depending on how big you made your cigarette). Edit > Fill that with the same gradient as before and leave Opacity at 100%. Now just apply a black Outer Glow to your base layer around 7px in size and set opacity to 18%. You can also add some text to personalize it a bit further. And thats it... We're done!
Of course, you can go much further than we
have here. If so inclined you can even go right
ahead and create a
whole box. Enjoy your smoke!
