Ground effects

3. Select the Masonry layer. Open the Layer Style dialog box and apply the following effects:

Pattern Overlay Select Overlay Blend Mode, 22% Opacity, select the Concrete pattern from the Texture Fill library, and set a 63% Scale.

Gradient Overlay Select Overlay Blend Mode, 35% Opacity, select the Black, White gradient, and uncheck Reverse, Linear Style, 125° Angle, and 150% Scale.

Color Overlay Select a pure yellow with HSB values of 60,100,100 in the Color Picker, set Overlay Blend Mode, and 10% Opacity.

The same set of three effects is used on this layer as in the last step. This time Color Overlay is used in a more traditional way to warm the masonry with a toned-down yellow hue. The Gradient Overlay gives some shading to the wall surfaces. Pattern Overlay combines nicely with the original subtle checkerboard texture that was rendered in VIZ.

4. Select the Sunshade layer. Once again, apply layer style effects:

Color Overlay Choose a dark gray (HSB values of 0,0,30), and leave Normal Blend Mode set at 100% Opacity.

Bevel And Emboss Select Inner Bevel Style, Smooth Technique, 51% Depth, Up Direction, 7 px Size, and 5 px Soften.

Color Overlay is used here to completely replace the original color. A bevel is added to give the sunshade a more rounded, three-dimensional appearance. See Figure 7.27 for this layer's effects.
