Caution Sign in Pixelmator
In this tutorial I’ll show you how to create a poster in new Pixelmator 3.0 FX version, using Shapes, Type Tool and new Layer Styles. I hope you enjoy making this tutorial and you’ll like the final result!
Open Pixelmator and create a new document, I’m using 700×800 pixels for the size. Fill the Background layer with gradient colour like in the image below, you can use Gradient Tool or new layer styles.
With Pen Tool draw a triangle, fill it with gradient, which you can make using white and black colours. Then use 10px for the stroke, add a shadow and a inner shadow.
Create another triangle inside first, use 14 px for the stroke and fill it with gradient like another triangle.
With Pen Tool create some stripes, fill them with black colour.
Then add one more, below last four. It should look like in the image below.
Add a picture, move Stormtrooper’s head in the centre.
With Pen Tool create a star shape with some chips, use 4 px for the stroke and fill it with grey colour.
With Custom Shape Tool create a rectangular, fill it with gradient, use 10 px for the stroke and add a shadow.
Add another rectangular, fill it with grey colour.
With Type Tool create a text with a record ,,CAUTION”, choose Arial as the font, make it bold and set font size to 72. Using new layer style fill it with gradient, add a shadow.
Create another text using Type Tool, choose Arial as the font, make it bold and set font size to 36. Add a shadow.
Add a layer, fill it with white colour, then go to Image > Colour Adjustments… > Stylize > Noise, use 30% for the Amount.
Go to Distortion > Twirl Distortion, use 260 px for the Radius and 720º Angle. Repeat that 5 times to make the effect stronger.
Select first triangle, then go to Edit > Invert Selection, then with Magic Eraser Tool erase all background.
With Gradient Tool create a layer, change the blending to Multiply at 35%, add similar layer, change the blending to Multiply at 20%. Select first triangle and with Magic Eraser Tool erase layer, leave only triangle.
