    Exclamation my carbon fibre tutorial for you guys!

    CARBON FIBER TUTORIAL


    ok guys, this is my tutorial to make cf
    lots of steps, but plz folow for best results.


    this tutorial was made for adobe photoshop 7.0 By foto_choppa.

    feel free to post this on other forums provide youask me first, and give me the credit i deserve.

    click pictures to enlarge.

    step #1
    select around your hood with the polygonal lasso tool. once selected-layer via copy.


    step #2
    select around the washer jets, then gently smudge them out with a small brush {how many people have carbon washer jets?}:p



    step #3
    take out most of the colour, not all-most real carbon has a tint of bronze, just a little.



    step #4
    time to make the pattern. create a new document(12p X 6p)



    step #5
    hit 'D' to get default colours, select a 1/4 of the square, then fill with the gradient tool and do the opisite corner so it looks like the one shown below.



    step #6
    define pattern.


    step #7
    create new (3000p X 3000p)-big i know, but its good.(sometims you might need a bigger one, there is no problem with having excess pattern.)


    step #8
    now fill with your newly made pattern (edit>fill)



    step #9
    once filled, free transform while holding shift, resize it to about this size on 16.67% zoomed



    step #10
    copy the cf pattern that you just resized onto your car, but resize it using the free transform tool (ctrl+t) to get it to a realistic size.


    step #11
    filter>distort>twirl>55:p



    step #12
    now flip, skew, transform, perspective to make it get smaller as the further away it is, till it looks just right.


    step #13
    now hold ctrl + click on the layer of the actual hood layer (in this picture its layer 1), it should select around the shape of the hood, now hit shift+ctrl+i now hit delete


    step #14
    change the opacity of your pattern to about 30-40, should look like the picture below.



    step #15
    now change the brightness of the orig. bonnet, i normally add some contrast to make it look more shiny-dont make the bonnet too dark, or too light



    step #16
    and you are done, here is the finished product, i couldnt help but add some gauges lol




    hope it werx 4 u!




    AND PLZ TELL ME IF YOU GUYS NEED ANY MORE TUTORIALS!

    How To Airbrush a Sideskirt (long)

    ok, here is a realy loooooong tutorial on how to brush a side skirt. - 30 steps!

    i can not promise this will work for you first time but if you follow these steps you will be on your way. IT TAKES PATIENCE AND PRACTICE!

    here we go.....


    step #1
    we desaturated the car so its easyer to brush.


    step #2
    now on a new layer draw the outline of the kit you want.


    step #3
    on another new layer called 'base of kit' but stay on your 'outline' layer. select themagic wand and click anywhere outside of the kit you drew (where it is blank) hit ctrl+shift+i.


    step #4
    now select your 'base of kit' layer.


    step #5
    get out the eyedropper tool and select a colour from the car that would suit the selected area.


    step #6
    fill the selected area with this colour.


    step #7
    now change to black paint, on a low opacity and brush some shaddow on the bottom ***make sure you do this on a new layer inacse you f**k it up***


    step #8
    now i want a little 'lip' on my skirt so on the top of this lip i brush in a little bit of white ***make sure you do this on a new layer inacse you f**k it up***


    step #9
    now to add 3D to the top, select something like this on a new layer:


    step #10
    now fill it with a lightish grey


    step #11
    now ctrl+click on the 'base of kit' layer but do not switch to that layer. hit shift+ctrl+i and then delete the excess.


    step #12
    now create a new layer but put it below the topline so that the top line covers the top of this layer-keep the selected area selected.


    step #13
    now on a VERY low opacity paint in a little bit of black at the top evenly.


    step #14
    when you disable the 'outline' layer, it should look like this:


    now scroll down coz they wont let me post any more pictures in this single post.

    step #15
    ctrl+click on the 'top part thinggy' layer. now get out black on a low opacity and brush in some darkness where needed


    step #16
    should look like this now:


    step #17
    now, since i want a smooth kit for a smooth rx7 ill merge the skirt so far and blur some parts to make it look rounder. if you want it to look sharp-dont blur.


    step #18
    now we just add some extra parts where needed (sorta like step #16) and merge down.


    step #19
    on a new 'highlight' layer draw over the kit with the line tool in WHITEon the key points of the kit (edges & stuff)


    step #20
    now just lower the opacity of this layer so it looks more realistic.


    step #21
    now for the vents-on a new layer, select around the outside of the vent.


    step #22
    get a solid brush and paint in some black, in a straight line-where you drew where you wanted the hole.


    step #23
    now choose a soft brush on a low opacity and gently brush in a soft shadow in the top corner.


    step #24
    now select where the visible bottom part of the vent will be, and paint this in light grey as before.


    step #25
    now get out the black on a low opacity and brush in the right shade.


    step #26
    on a new highlight layer do the same as step #19


    step #27z0
    same as step #20


    step #28z01
    repeat steps #21-#27 to do the same for a 2nd vent (if applicable)


    step #29z02
    now delete any over-hanging parts.


    step #30z03

    How To Lower A Car

    step #1
    we'll start with the nissan micra we just put the rims on.


    step #2
    grab the polgonal lasso tool and go around the bottom of the car and up the sides and up on the top too.


    step #3
    then right click>layer via copy.


    step #4
    grab the move tool and drag the body and background down (hold shift if necissary)


    step #5
    now this iswhat most tutorials dont say-grab the top of the layer you just lowered.


    step #6
    right click>layer via copy


    step #7
    now hit ctrl+t and stretch it up so the gap is well and truly gone. then hit enter.


    step #8
    create a new layer.


    step #9
    move the layer in between the background layer and the lowered layer.


    step #10
    lasso the areas that need to be filled with black.(where you can see the background car)


    step #11
    now fill those areas with black or a appropriate colour.


    final.

    How To Change Your Car Color

    this way will only work on coloured cars. this is only one of the many ways.

    step #1
    lets start with this mazda 6.


    step #2
    grab the polygonal lasso tool then select the areas of the car you want to change colour. (hold shift to add some selection, and alt to remove it)


    step #3
    right click>layer via copy


    step #4
    on the layer you just copied press ctrl+u and just move the hue slider to get different colours, the saturation controls the amount of colour.


    step #5
    finished. just remember, paint last just incase you want to change something on the body.

    Go From No Color...to Color!!

    from no colour to colour!

    this is one of the many ways but this is my personal favorite way!

    step #1
    start with this colourless mazda 6.


    step #2
    now select the car with a lasso tool. (hold alt to unselect a area, shift to add to selection)


    step #3
    right click>layer via copy.


    step #4
    hit ctrl+u and click the colourise tab. now move the hue slider to change colour and saturation changes how much colour and lightness changes how light or dark you want it.


    step #5
    hit ok and you're finished.
