3.Now to see the "base"- color the background with gray or something like this- double click on the foreground color window, choose desired color and use Paint Bucket Tool(G)
to fill the Background
4.Duplicate the base layer(right click on it> Duplicate Layer) and name it "filter".
Use the Magic Wand Tool(W) and click on the white "base" to select it
5.Choose the color for the filter and fill the selection with Paint Bucket Tool(G)
Hit CTRL+D to deselect it,
5,1 and use the Rectangular Marquee Tool to select the part of this layer that you don't need,
5,2 and erase it with Eraser Tool(E), hit again CTRL+D to deselect it( if you want to change the color again, as you will see that I did, just use again the Magic Wand Tool, and paint the selection with another color)
6.Right click on the "base" layer> Blending Options and set the parameters as following
and set also these parameters for the "filter" layer
7.Filter> Noise> Add Noise and set the parameters something like that, and repeat this with the "filter" layer but with lower Amount
8. now its time to give this cigarette the realistic look by applying the lines, we must make a Pattern: Open a new document with Size 10x8 pixels, zoom it to the max and pick the Pencil Tool
8,1 draw a black line in the middle,
8,2go to Edit> Define Pattern> I've named it "lines"
8,3 go to Blending Options> Pattern Overlay, find this new Pattern and set the parameters like this
9.Duplicate the "filter" layer and take Brush Tool, set the foreground color to lighter, choose small brush and brush some spots like on a real cigarette (if the color is to bright-you can always lower the Opacity of this layer)
10.Now hold CTRL and left click on the "filter" and "base" layer to select all layers except Background, then right click on one of them, and Merge Layers
11.Right click on the layer and rename it to "cigarette"
12.So this should not be a no-name cigarette, and I'm now going to make a Label
Layer> New> Layer and select the Horizontal Type Tool(T)
Choose Font, also choose foreground color, and type whatever you want, now go to Edit> Transform> Rotate 90 CW, place the Label on the cigarette, right click on the layer> Rasterizing Layer, and use Eraser Tool to erase the parts that are peeking over the cigarette, lower the opacity to about 85% and the result should be something like this
13.Because the label is "Luxury" I'm going to give this cigarette a fine tuning with a silver line to make it more fancy.
Make a new layer, and use the Rectangular Marquee Tool(M) to make a selection and fill it with color( no matter which, because the blending options will turn it into silver)
14.Merge layers, make a selection with the Rectangular Marquee Tool(M) and draw some tobacco
15.At the end I've filled the Background with white and added a shadow to my cigarette and used Dodge Tool to lighten the top of the filter to make it more real!
