How to Create Splashing Water Background (Photoshop)

In this section we will introduce you how to create the splashing water background.

Unlike the still water texture we introduced previously(Photoshop: How to Create Water Surface Texture), this is an image of splashing water.

The only thing you need to is overlapping four filters. Please try.

Step01 Cloud Pattern 1 Filter

Open a new file. Set [Generate Color: Black / Background Color: White] and apply [Filter > Generate > Cloud Pattern 1].

Cloud Pattern 1

The white background turned into cloud.

Step02 Blur Filter

We have applied Cloud Pattern 1. Now we apply [Filter > Blur > Blur (radial)].

Blur (Radial)

The cloud pattern is blurred radially.

Step03 Wrap Filter

After blurring it radially, add another filter on top. Set the value [Filter > Filter Gallery > Artistic > Wrap] and click <New Effect Later>.

Do not click <OK> yet.

Wrap Filter

Wrap Filter turned the image more mysterious.

Step04 Chrome Filter

Apply [Sketch > Chrome] directly after clicking <New Effect Layer>.

Chrome Filter

The rough texture turned smooth.

Step05 Adjust Brightness/Contrast

Copy the background layer and disable the view.(Retaled articles:Know the Basic of Photoshop Layer)

Select the background layer. Adjust the contrast intense with the setting above in <New Brightness/Contrast>.

Step06 Adjust Hue/Saturation

Display the copied layer and set [Generate Mode: Overlay]. Check on Color Unionization in <New Hue/Saturation> and adjust the coloring.

Done!

Done!

We only overlapped filters. The outcome varies every time as we use Cloud Pattern and that gives an interesting effect.

Cloud Pattern Difference

This is a newly created illustration.

Since cloud patterns are generated randomly, it looks different from the previous one. The key factor in this tutorial is to create a deep texture by overlapping layers and using overlay.

Changing values would create very different designs. Please try and explore.
