A little Written tutorial & ...

Hey everyone,

To all that are familiar with Photoshop. Here's something I helped a forum member with on another website. It is laying graphics down the easy way utilizing the pen tool/Bezier curve tool.

Changing of paint or graphic schemes.

1. Make a copy of the original color (body outline) using pen/Bezier tool
& layers.

2. Desaturate color - Image/adjust/Desaturate

3. Make a copy an fill with Color of choice (make sure this copy is
above the previous desaturated color).

4. Go to layers palette, (the new color layer) go to overlay or screen
(top left pull down tab) you can adjust the transparency to desired effect
and there you go.


Give it a try.

Here is a sample pic: The car had no graphic prior to me working on it.

Now how 'bout a little tutorial on how you made that graphic change direction (point to the front in center of hood). Did you first use the pen/Bezier to hand draw the outline and then fill with color on an overlayed layer?

And I second New Interior's assessment of your skills!!!!!!

Correct cboy! Thanks cboy & NEW INTERIORS for the comments. I have many years of "practice." I am a traditional & digital illustrator, graphic designer, character design, photomanipulation & photo restoration.


I am a real car nut/junkie.
