Take Paint Bucket Tool (G) and fill the background with this color #888888. We start making the shape. The easiest way is to take the car's headlight, and follow it's basic lines. So, make a new group and name it Shape. The make a new layer. Pick Pen Tool (P), a green color and having the Brush Tool (B) at 2px, after every completed path stroke it.
