Photoshop Tutorial | Alfa Romeo 4c

This tutorial describes how to render this car using Adobe Photoshop. The whole thing took about an hour and a half to complete. The design is loosely based on the Alfa Romeo 4c.

Step 01

Scan your sketch and scale it to fit on an A4 page at 300 DPI.

 

Step 02

Adjust the levels of the scanned image to clean it up. Edit > Adjustments > Levels...

If there are any design changes or adjustments make them now.

Step 03

Create a new layer and fill it with a mid-range grey colour. Double click the scanned image in the layer bar and a new layer dialogue box should come up. Click ok. Then move the scanned image layer above the grey layer and change the blending mode to Multiply from the drop-down list at the top of the layer tab.

Step 04

Either find some wheels on the net or download some from my resource page and position and scale them into place.

Step 05

Create a new layer for the black areas.

Step 06

On a new layer fill in the main parts of the bodywork.

Step 07

Create a new layer above the main bodywork layer and change its blending mode to Linear Burn. Use a darker tone than the bodywork and start adding shadow.

Step 08

Create a new layer above the main bodywork layer and change its blending mode to Colour Dodge. This time use a lighter colour to create some highlights.

Step 09

Add some further detail to the front air intake area and wing mirrors.

Step 10

Using a cyan colour create a outline for the headlamp detail.

Step 11

On a new layer create some backwalls for the headlamps.

Step 12

Finally, create an outer glow layer style to the original headlamp outline.
