If you ever wanted to give details and depth to a dull plant in no time You have come to the right place In this video, we are going to do some quick moves in Photoshop for a quick but amazing result, check it out. Okay, so before we start, what you’re going to do is import your 2D B&W design into Photoshop If you don’t have one to follow the tutorial, you can get the same one I’m using on our gumroad page There you will find the textures we used in the video, as well as the plant’s cad file and the pdf This is a way for you to support the channel, so that I can continue creating these free videos for youtube You will then be able to follow exactly the same steps in the video to learn everything I’ll leave the link in the video description or here on the cards Well, the first thing to do when you get this blank canvas is to fill the walls Yes you could have already exported with a black fill from your cad or bim software but I think doing it directly in Photoshop gives me more freedom to change it, if necessary So, using the base layer and the magic wand shortcut W Select the inside of the wall Create a new layer and paint it with any color, to keep that selection If you follow my videos, you know that I like to do everything in a non-destructive way So that we can make any chances later, if we want The wall color will be added as a new layer with “clip” below Ctrl + alt + G to “clip” That way, just fill the layer to change the color. I’m going to use a dark blue color for this one. Then after that we can go to the “Blending Options” of the layer and activate the “Pattern Overlay” let’s add a diagonal line pattern I used the split layer mode (Divide) to invert it to white Next, we’re going to add two “Strokes”, one black for the outside and one white for the inside In this way, you will always see the section of the wall, regardless of the type of textures or colors below them. Now, how we did this combination of layers to paint our walls it is very easy to simply add any piece that we may have overlooked You just have to paint on the wall layer and it will match the existing settings. Okay, so the first part is ready, we can then move on to the floor I’m just repeating the texture over the plant Make sure to place the floor below the Base Layer, so you don’t have to be too precise because the wall will cover the floor And also the lines of the furniture will still be visible After repeating the texture, select them all and press Ctrl + E to merge them all together As always, use masks instead of deleting the excess And make sure you use a seamless texture for that If you don’t have these high quality textures, I’ll leave in the video description a video I made on how to create your own library for free Then, a wooden floor for the intimate area and a concrete floor for the rest. That, of course, depends on you and your design. Quick note, if you missed a step, and would like to see it slowly Please use YouTube’s built-in feature to slow down the video. Okay, so select all the layers on the floor and group them into a folder Ctrl + G for the shortcut And above this folder we will create a layer to paint all the furniture white I’m going to jump ahead in this step I’m just using the rectangular marquee tool and the magic wand to select the areas where I’m going to paint white on the furniture layer It’s a very tedious process to watch, but you get the point, right? Okay, now we’ve filled all the furniture with white in a new layer Next, we have to take care of the floor in the balcony area. I think for that I will use the same concrete floor, and it is very easy to simply expand what we have As we are using masks, just click holding SHIFT on the mask thumbnail to disable it for a moment Then, unlink the layer from the mask by clicking on the “lock” After that you can make a selection, and using the Move tool (V) Hold ALT and drag to the side to copy within the same layer And make sure you have the selected layer instead of the mask When you’re done, you can press Ctrl + D to deselect everything Activate the mask again and lock again And lastly, correct the mask and the areas that need to be visible Remember: black to hide and white to show. So far, what we’ve done has been quite common. But now it’s time to create the highlights, the depth And that is what takes this fast rendering to the next level. Pay close attention. Okay, so create a “Levels Adjustment” and place it above the floor paste Then, take a “Clip” down. Clicking this button here Or you can also press the shortcut Ctrl + Alt + G to do this So adjust the sliders to something like this We want to burst the image (Over-expose) Then, paint the “levels adjustment” mask completely black So that the whole effect is hidden Then take a round pin and adjust the hardness to 0% so that you can have a very smooth pin Decrease opacity by 20 or 30% is fine The effect that we are trying to do here is as if the light is coming from the windows Thus, with the help of selections and using the soft round brush we have assembled, we can achieve this effect. And the cool thing is that, since it is below the wall layer, it will not affect Also, since it is cut only for this paste, it will not affect the background, for example In this case, the background is white, so it will not show But sometimes you can be doing it on your plank or landscaping project so it’s nice to have it “clip” below Now you have the freedom to do it however you want If you want hard shadows and highlights all in the same direction all you need to do is use a hard brush and more precise selections You know, feel free to explore and experience different results. We took care of the highlights, now we are going to do the shadows. So, create another layer at the top and also a “clip” below Then, using the same round brush, but now with a black color, intensify the dark areas In this step, you can do as much as you want But honestly, I feel that an uneven shadow gives a more artistic feel to the end result So there is no right or wrong, it all depends on you. I would say that the shadow part consists of two steps One to create depth in the room, to intensify the contrast between highlights and shadows And one more step to take care of the shade of the furniture. So let’s do this. Create a new layer and a clip below And now, using a not-so-soft brush with 100% opacity start painting a harder shadow next to the objects Keep in mind that you have to consider where the light is coming from, or where the sun is. As we all paint with 100% opacity, we can decrease the opacity of the layer to reduce all these furniture shadows at once. Now, above the White Furniture layer, we can create another layer and clip it below (clip) to make the furniture a little more 3D Take a look The same process, but now on a different layer. I’m just showing you a simple approach to this You use the base layer and a magic wand to select within the objects and then paint the inner shadows. It is a very simple technique, but you can take as long as you like to perfect it. I’m also creating another layer between the Shadow Adjust that we just did and the white layer of the furniture to fill with a very light gray and apply a “Noise Filter” It just gives a little detail to the white furniture that was so boring. Okay, now at the bottom of the layer stack, but above the “background” create a new layer so that we can paint the general shadow. This helps to highlight the plant a little more All right, now, if you want to add tiles to the floor You could add a texture that has Or you can just add a “Pattern Overlay”. Let me show you Inside the floor folder, create a new layer and paint it black, whatever the color, the area where the tile will be placed, in this case the bathroom Now pay attention to the next step bring the fill to 0%, not the opacity, but the fill (FILL) This movement allows us to insert our “pattern overlay” with “blending options” without having to show anything on the layer other than our effect Now, just select a square pattern or any of your taste change the scale, blending mode to multiply and reduce opacity If we wanted a bigger tile, we would have to create a new pattern with more pixels because what comes as a standard in photoshop is bursting But that’s basically it guys, very easy Now we have this base ready and you can spend a lot of time entering details, like blueprints objects and so on Or you can be minimal about it. I’m just adding these plants to give this balcony an external feel But you could go crazy here The foundation is solid, good and ready to receive, for example, your interior design project I do not know. There is a lot of space to create here The only tip I would give would be to use the same color scheme so that everything mixes well. Alright, as always, to end it all: The finishing touch I will hide the white background for a moment and, on top of everything press ctrl + shift + alt + E, all together to create a copy of your file in a layer Then, transform yourself into a “Smart Object” and apply a camera raw filter. We use a “Smar Object” so that we can go back and adjust these settings, if necessary. And here at camera raw we just need to touch these sliders to make it look beautiful, there is no rule here I mean, I’m going to try all the results and I usually give a little more contrast, a little more detail But that’s basically it, press OK and you’re done! Okay, if you learned something in this video don’t forget to leave a LIKE, it helps a lot with the youtube algorithm This video was to show you a quick way to render your plan using photoshop Remember to create many layers in your file. One for each type of element Rename the layers and use the color code always.
