Virtual Tuning with Photoshop


Step 71

Create a new layer and name this layer stroke.


Step 72

Using the Pen tool, create a path and stroke it with white like shown below. Use the eraser tool with a soft edge and 50% opacity to erase the edges slightly.


Step 73

Using the same technique from Step 69 to 72, create the rest of the fins. When you’re done, create a selection like shown below.


Step 74

Choose Image > Adjustments > Brightness/Contrast and bump up the brightness slightly. This will create a reflection on the hood scoop.


Step 75

Now we’ll convert this car from 4 doors to 2 doors by merging the doors together. Ensure that the layer with the car body is selected. Create a selection shown below then copy it to your clipboard (Edit > Copy). Now it`s time for two door conversion . Select this part and copy it.


Step 76

Create a new layer as the top layer then create a selection of the window and fill it with black.


Step 77

Paste (Edit > Paste) the dividers that we just copied earlier then use the Free Transform tool (Edit > Free Transform) to move and scale it to the rear like shown in the image below.


Step 78

Create a selection like shown below then use the Smudge tool to smudge away the embossed edge.


Step 79

Here is what the image looks like after smudging.


Step 80

Find a picture of a sport seat like the one below then paste it into Photoshop as the top layer.


Step 81

Mask the seat from its background. We simply used the Magic Wand tool to create a selection of the white background then deleted it.


Step 82

Now we’ll make a roll cage. Use the Brush tool with a hard edge to paint a thick like like shown below.


Step 83

Use the Burn tool to burn the inner edge of the roll cage.


Step 84

Use the Dodge tool to highlight the middle area of the roll cage to give it a round look.


Step 85

Use the Pen tool to create a path shown below and stroke it. This time, enable the Simulate Pressure option when stroking the path. In case you forgot, to stroke a path, right click on the path in the paths palette (Window > Paths) then choose Stroke.


Step 86

Repeat the previous steps to add a roll cage to the back window using the same technique.


Step 87

Using the same technique, draw a roll cage for the interior. This time, do it on new layer then position it behind the car seat.


Step 88

Now we’ll create the highlight stitch on the car seat. Use the Pen tool to create a path like shown below.


Step 89

Select blue as your foreground color then select the Brush tool and set the size of your brush to 2 pixels. In the Paths palette (Window > Paths), right click on the path then choose Stroke Path.


Step 90

Use the eraser tool to erase the line like shown below.


Step 91

Use the Dodge and Burn tools on the stitch to make it look more 3D.


Step 92

Using the same technique, add stitching to the other parts of the car seat.


Step 93

Now we’ll create the window. Create a new layer as the top layer then name it windows. Create a selection like shown below.
