Hey, I never claimed to be an artist! You should've seen the one that was sectioned, dropped and chopped.

That looks cool with the gangster walls. What about a cover on the bed?

It would be nice to have some stock images of wheels and things to be scaled and pasted.

Here ya go mike, I put some flames on it for ya. I didn't chop it like elky did, I like it better myself without being chopped, and I didn't drop it as much this time. And while I was at it I cleaned up a few things for you, like the box under the truck, and I cleaned out your garage and redecorated it for you.

Mike, I'll try a red/flamed one too.. I still have to squeeze in 8 hours of work too!!

Brad, the poster was a NICE touch

Elky, that skew is SWEEET, nice job on the color too... Did you just lay purple over it? or did you desaturate first, then over lay the purple... it looks like you did the desaturate...

Do you just scale them by eyeball?

usually its all by eyeball.. with the weld rims, I removed the "extra" stuff around the rim until I had just the "front of the rim" (I removed the stuff zoomed in about 300% and justed used a "non aliased" eraser) then When I had the finished item, I just scaled it down to fit over rons existing rim.. its easier to find a tire with the rims, but I couldnt find any in this case...



this is the image I used for the wheels.. you can see what I erased... Iused these because they have the closet angle to rons tire.. when doing wheels its important to match the angle. if the wheels are off its more noticable, than if you missed a spot of color...

I used the smudging finger thing and smoothed out the chips/color of it (does the desaturate do the same thing?), while shaving it at the same time..that and a dark blue with some purple and a little cyan in it. I did tint the windows blue, blut it made it look like i just colored the whole thing so i left that out...

elky it looks nice. Desaturate is in "adjustments" what it does is basically turns your picture (or selected item) black and white its much easier to lay a color on TOP of black and white, than say burgundy, like Rons car. I actually forgot to "touch" up the spots on rons car (maybe i'll redo it tonight) For touchups I usually use the "eye dropper". I put the eye dropper near the item I want to touch up to get an accurate color then I brush over it, or use the line tool to touch up.. The trick with the eyedropper is getting the right sample color, and depending on the "quality" of the print you may need to mess with the eyedropper setting... rons picture is high quality so a 5x5 sample would work on his..

mike for yours, I desaturated, but also turned the brightness down, since it was more of a flat gray, after desturating... masking is tricky too. you can "cheat" and avoid using the mask by using the polygon lasso tool, just go highlight around the object, then COPY it to another layer, then clean up all the excess with an eraser, I find this method faster and easier than masking.. you can also use the "cleaned up" layer as an overlay for color, once you have cleaned it up, then you can copy that selction to yet another LAYER, use can then fill that with a color or a fade or whatever, then select "overlay" on that layer to put it on the car..

on average I use about 10-15 layers for a chop!!
