Customize your car in Photoshop
;Step 1 Start out with a 400 x 300 black canvas. First create a new layer set then make a new layer inside the layer set. Select the line tool then set the weight setting to 7px. The weight setting appears at the top of your window when the line tool is selected. Draw a #FFE400 slanted line, Holding shift and moving the mouse in a slanted direction will create a perfect slanted line.Step 2 Now add an inner shadow with this settings:Inner Shadow- Blend Mode: Normal Color: #000000- Opacity: 36%- Angle: -133 Use Global Light: Uncheck- Distance: 3- Choke: 0- Size: 0- Contour: Default Anti-aliased: Uncheck- Noise: 0
We’re going to make a picture like this:
Step 3 Now were to going to make the metal piece. First load select the entire pencil then use the polygon lasso tool to subtract 80% of the selection ( look at picture guide ). When subtracting with the polygon lasso tool use the shift key so it's a perfect subtraction. Once you have the selection for the soon to be metal piece, create a new layer then use the bucket tool to fill in #FFFFFF. For it to look like a metal piece, add this settings to the layer styles:
1) Get a good picture likemine here
|Inner Shadow- Blend Mode: Normal Color: #000000- Opacity: 51%- Angle: -135 Use Global Light: Uncheck- Distance: 3- Choke: 0- Size: 0- Contour: Default Anti-aliased: Uncheck- Noise: 0||Satin:- Blend Mode: Normal Color: 8F8F8F- Opacity: 100- Angle: -25Distance: 6Size: 0Contour: Picture Below Anti-aliased: Uncheck Invert: Uncheck|
Step 4 To make the eraser, create a new layer then repeat step 3, its up to you how long you want the eraser to be. Use color #B08284 to fill and the layer styles settings below. Oviously you would have to move the eraser up so it doesnt interfere with the metal piece.
2) Now use the pen tool, the lasso tool or the magic wand tool to select the red part like in the picture.
|Inner Shadow- Blend Mode: Normal Color: #000000- Opacity: 41%- Angle: -135 Use Global Light: Uncheck- Distance: 4- Choke: 0- Size: 2- Contour: Default Anti-aliased: Uncheck- Noise: 0||Satin:- Blend Mode: Color Dodge Color: FFFFFF- Opacity: 36- Angle: 39Distance: 4Size: 7Contour: Default Anti-aliased: Uncheck Invert: Check|
with some simple steps in photoshop..
Step 5 You just completed a detailed pencil, see how easy that was? Now were going to make a sharpened pencil, first duplicate the layer set so you have two versions in the end. Zoom into the tip of the pencil then use the pen tool to cut out a sharp edge.
3) Create a new layer and fill the selection with a color of your choice
We’re starting off by ‘drawing’ the ray of lights..
Step 6 Now were going to add more details into the sharp edge and to do that we have to use the same technique as step 3, But when you cut the selection dont cut it in a straight line instead cut in a zig zag direction. You know when you sharpen a pencil the end of the sharpened part is in a zig zag line ( Google Image Sharpened Pencil to see a visual ). Once you have the selection of the sharpened part, create a new layer and fill it with #E2C989. Apply an inner shadow with this settings:Inner Shadow- Blend Mode: Normal Color: #000000- Opacity: 29%- Angle: -131 Use Global Light: Uncheck- Distance: 3- Choke: 0- Size: 0- Contour: Default Anti-aliased: Uncheck- Noise: 0Step 7 One last thing before it's complete, the tip is dark gray. To add that last detail, use the same technique as step 3 but now your only selecting the sharpened part instead of the whole pencil. Once you subtract the unneccesary selection, fill it with #505050 in the same layer as step 6.Throughtout this tutorial, you learned how to make a detailed pencil without the text and numbers and that can be easily added but the pencil on this tutorial is to small for you to be able to read the text and number. On every tutorial you should expand your ways of thinking meaning use the same technique to make a pen or a marker, If you have any questions use the contact us page. The final image below is sharpened.
Create a new layer (shift ctr N) and give it a proper name
Choose the lasso tool or the pen tool
4) Set the blending mode of that layer to "color" All you have to do now is to add some details.
- Draw the ray of light just like the image below..
