The next lesson I'll show you how to create nice wallpapers for the desktop.
Firstly we need to represent a new file (File>New) of 1920x1200 px and 72 dpi. Then choose the black color for this layer, applying the Paint Bucket Tool (G) for this operation.
Make a copy of this layer (Ctrl+J) and select Filter>Noise>Add Noise, setting the next demonstrated parameters:
We've got the next background:
Then choose Filter>Filter Gallery>Sketch>Bas Relief.
This way we'll get the texture of the wall:
Fill 50% on the layer
Create a new layer Shift+Ctrl+Alt+N and give it the next indicated color:
Change the layer's parameters:
We'll get a dark wall:
Create a new layer, giving it a new color:
Set the next parameters for the last made layer:
It's the result we must get on this stage:
Next select the Blending Options. Have a left click on this layer on the layers' panel and set the next parameters:
Fill 0% on the layer:
We've got a wall with the backlight:
Make a correcting layer on the layers' panel:
Set the next shown parameters:
The background became colder:
Select the Brush Tool (B) of white color and represent a brushstroke of big sizes:

Do this operation several times, the same way from below:
Press Ctrl button, click on the logo's layer and we'll get a marking. Then click on the mask representation on the layers' panel:

We'll get a texture on the made logo:
Insert the mask on this layer:
Click on it and give it black color:
Download out of Internet the brushes bloodbrushes2_invaynestock.abr, choosing the one from below of black color:
Not leaving the mask, we'll represent several spots:
Make a new layer and situate it under the logo's layer, representing the spots with the brush of white color:
It's the result you should get:
Change the Fill option on 16%:
We'll get the next spots:
Represent several new spots on a new layer again:
Change the layer's parameters:
We'll get the next result:
Next we'll create an ellipse on a new layer, choosing the Elliptical Marquee Tool (M).
Have a right click on it and choose out of the menu the Stroke option:
Set for this layer the next Blending Options:
It's the result we'll get on this stage:
Then move off the unnecessary elements with the Eraser Tool (E), Hardness 0%.
Now we'll create a new layer, placing it under the layer containing the logo. Represent a big brush stroke, the same way we did at the beginning of the lesson and set the next demonstrated parameters for the last made layer:
