Next let’s create the sign in the back. Place the first piece in the back and add some curves to lighten it. Write the word Nowhere and clip it on the sign’s layer.
AOpen the second piece of the sign and place it under the first piece layer. Merge the two layers and duplicate the new layer. Flip it vertically and distort it so it will look like in the image below. Set the layer’s opacity to about 10%.
Go to the Adjustment layers- Hue Saturation. Set the saturation to +47. Hide on the layer’s mask some parts , as you see in the image.
Use the Lucis Art plug-in one more time ( Filter-High Pass, for those who don’t have it). Use it only on the sign, on the crocodile’s texture and the sky. Set the layer’s opacity to 39%.
Go to the Adjustment layers- Curves to add some shadows into the corners. Do the same with Hue-Saturation. Use the same mask on both layers.
Go to the Adjustment layers-Levels (opacity 30%)
Go to Filters – Liquify and fix the roof top because it’s bit to high and the perspective it’s not right.
In this step we will make the wheels look like they are spinning. Cut out the wheel. Go to Filters-Blur-Radial blur. Place it on top of the car’s wheel. Do the same with the back wheel.
Create a visible stamp. Go to Filters- Blur-Motion blur (set the amount to 50 and the angle to 10). This filter will be used at the back of the car so it will look like the car is moving.
Go to the Adjustment Layers-Gradient map. You have the presets below.
Blur the mountains in the back. Use the blur tool or go to Filters-Gaussian blur.
Create a visible stamp and go to Filter-Filter Gallery –Dry Brush. Use the basic Photoshop presets. Set the layer’s opacity to 18%.
Go to the Adjustment Layers-Curves.
Adjustment Layers- Hue Saturation, for a final touch and we are done!
