Here, I'll teach you how to make a pencil signature. Create a new image 600 x 100 with a transparent background 12de2.jpg Fill it with pure yellow orange 27vt.jpg Create a new guide in the middle, horizontally 3guide7az.jpg Select one half and move the selection to the middle 5moveselection4vf.jpg Drag new guides to split the image into quarters 6newguides5yp.jpg Select the top quarter and increase the brightness (IMAGE>ADJUSTMENTS>BRIGHTNESS/CONTRAST) to +20 Select the bottom quarter and decrease to brightness to -20 7brightness0ec.jpg Create a new layer under the orange layer and fill it with pastel yellow orange. Hide the orange layer by clicking the eye icon next to it 8color8du.jpg Apply noise (FILTER>NOISE) 9noise3dr.jpg Apply motion blur (FILTER>BLUR>MOTION BLUR) 10blur3cu.jpg Add shadows and highlights using dodge and burn (CTRL+O) and drag a new guide 11dodgenburn6wf.jpg Make a selection 12tip1fl.jpg Transform the selection (CTRL+T>PERSPECTIVE) dragging the corners to the center 13tipa8qd.jpg Paint the lead and add a highlight to it with a soft brush 14lead8vq.jpg Make the orange layer visible and delete the right part 15cropaintip0wv.jpg Drag a new guide 16newguide8pw.jpg Using the guides as a reference, create an eliptical selection in the middle part, hold SHIFT and make narrower selections on the top and bottom. Invert the selection (SELECT>INVERSE) 17finishtip9gp.jpg
