How To Create a Realistic Money Effect in Photoshop

There’s plenty of Photoshop tutorials that show how to create a basic halftone line effect, but they never quite capture that authentic engraved look with plenty of shading and tone. After lots of trial and error I finally managed to figure it out, so here’s an in depth tutorial on how to create a realistic money illustration effect in Photoshop (with some help from Illustrator!). The effect we’ll be creating in today’s tutorial is this vintage engraved or etched illustration style that builds up the tonal areas of an image with lots of tiny lines.

Unlike the basic halftone line effect used in other tutorials, this method actually uses curved and wavy lines that vary in weight to produce an accurate replica of this classic illustration technique.

Building A Portable Design Toolkit

In this article, we’ll explore the idea of consciously restricting yourself to a set of core tools that you know, love and trust. Take a traditional craftsman — let’s say a carpenter. While they may have access to a wide range of tools in their workshop, they will take a bag with just a few carefully chosen tools when working away. Similarly, an artist may have a wide range of paints, brushes and accessories in their studio, but will carefully select a limited palette and a few choice brushes when painting in the field. In the same way, as a digital designer, you should know what your most precious tools are, and keep a portable set close at hand.

Recently I’ve been doing some oil paintings outside, away from the studio (a technique called en plein air). Retinize It: Free Photoshop Action For Slicing Graphics For HD Screens. High-definition (or “Retina”) displays have spread wider and wider, and evidently their numbers will keep growing.
