Using Photoshop you can create some really interesting plays on light and shadow similar to the standard start up Mac background in OSX.
This tutorial is an intermediate tutorial and uses the pen tool, a bit of brushing and a gradient. Anyhow this is the first tutorial i've written for years, i went through the old deviantart tutes and found the ones i did when the site first started, they've all gone offline so I thought its time to start afresh
Anyhow hope this helps someone in some way. I actually use this technique in corporate work so it does have some practical use from a design point of view. Just remember to keep it subtle! (thats like my motto)

This has been usefull to me to show my clients a mockup of how the final case would look. I've been designing many DVD covers / Booklets and this was a really handy template I made, since it looks pretty real and stylish.
This is the DVD case I've been using as a preview for the DeviantGirls series. Many people asked me about it, and I thought it would be better to release it to the public. You only need Photoshop CS/CS2/CS3 to open it and tweak the layers. You can fully customize both artworks and stuff. If you want to change the box color, look on the "dvd case" group and tweak them with Hue/Saturation.
I hope you like it!
Comments and favourites welcome.
Important: This template is FREE for use. Whatever you do, congrats, it will look great lol . BUT... if you show your artwork on deviantart, I would appreciate a link back to my gallery.
I was planning to include this icon in my affel icon set but I didn´t finish it at time, so well, I´ve decided to rebuild it from scratch and release the icon separately including the PSD as well.
I used this picture as a model to create the icon. Hope you find it useful in some way.
One icon in PNG format with a resolution of 512x512px (Leopard Ready) and the PSD I used to create the icon.
This file is free to use, both the icon and the PSD. You can do everything you want with the content of this file except using it for monetary gains or commercial purposes. That´s forbidden. Thanks for reading.
