I'll try to make a process blog with my ** english. I'll spare you all the details and I'll try to be quite synthetic.
- THE RAINBOW
First of all I scanned a Vinyl (600 dpi). That one was Scarlatti's "32 Harpishord Sonatas"
I played on the levels on Photoshop to have a sharp and contrasted picture of the grooves. By using the tool "Color range", I isolated only the black stripes of the picture. I Used "Color Overlay" to make it completly white.
I drew the 6 stripes and colorized them with vintage rainbow colors. I putted the white grooves layer on the stripes ( see the animated gif bellow)
I added textures on the bold black stripe around the label.
2. THE CLOUDS
I took some pictures of the sky on a cloudy day. Desaturation on Photoshop, and then I used the same technique as for the grooves:
"Color Range" with White . Then I organised the cloud pictures to hide the whole bottom of the design to make the Lp fly. I also added some clouds with a created Photoshop brush.
3. THE FAKE LABEL
I scanned a blank white Lp label(600 dpi) .
Corected the levels to have a great contrasted label, and added distressed textures.
Now I wanted to make it look like a vintage label so I had to create some fake companies logos, What i've done with "Spectrum RECORDS" and "Rainbow Music" . Rainbow Music was entirely created on Photoshop, and Spectrum RECORDS was thought and traced first with a drawing pencil and then with a black pen on paper. I Scanned it and retraced it on Photoshop.
I added some details as "Stereo" or the copyright infos, and added some birds flying through the clouds. Every text and logos on this label were textured manually with the eraser tool.
