Bloody Roses Heart Photoshop Tutorial

This tutorial teaches you how to create a bloody roses heart in Photoshop using just a few stock images. We'll use of course red roses, medieval fantasy swords, a vector ribbon, plus blood brushes and textures. I am pretty much please about the result but I am sure that your Valentine heart roses will look even better. You can check out some heart roses tattoo samples for more inspiration. If you replace the swords with an arrow for example you will also obtain a beautiful bleeding heart manipulation.

Advertisment

In this tutorial we are going to create a bloody rose heart in Photoshop just in time to practice it for this year Valentine's day. I will start with a simple background layer; fill it with #e8dab7 color. Copy this fantasy sword stock image in your PSD file. Use a Selection Tool to remove background in Photoshop. You can create a clipping path with the Pen Tool and add it as layer mask.

Add an Inner Shadow layer style to the Sword Layer and also add a Brightness/Contrast adjustment just for this layer. Also roate the image like shown in the preview.

Select the Sword Layer and the adjustment layer and cnvert them into a smart object; duplicate the new created object. Flip the duplicate smart object horizontally to create a cross swords effect.

Add this beautiful roses heart to your image and remove its background. Duplicate the layer and call them Roses Heart 1 Layer and Roses Heart 2 Layer.

Add a Inner Shadow style and also a Brightness/Contrast adjustment just for the Roses Heart 1 Layer.

Set the blend mode of the Roses Heart 2 Layer to Soft Light

Create a new layer below the Roses Heart Layers and set the blend mode to Overlay. Use the Brush Tool and a soft round brush, color black, to paint a shadow effect. Make sure that the shadow is visible only on the swords. For that you have to make a selection of the swords and paint only inside that selection.

Now we'll add a ribbon on the center of the roses heart. You can pick one of the many vector ribbons available for free on the internet. Here is the second collection of ribbon vector with free PSD files.
