Thread: Extreme Photoshop Exercise - Zhng My Car

    Default Extreme Photoshop Exercise - Zhng My Car

    Hi guys,

    Ok this might not be the place to post this because this is moving way beyond photography but I thought it would be nice to share something which I'm working on with you guys...

    Anyway, I had a crazy idea one day to digitally "zhng" my Mitshibitshi Lancer into a suped up super car of sorts... (watched too much Discovery Channel!! ) So I sort of made it into my own little personal exercise to see how far I can push myself in terms of photoshopping a photograph..

    Below you can see the sequence of events which lead up to where I am at now... still lots of work before it will be completed...

    Ok here we go..


    In these I sort of established the basic scene, the perspective of the scene, the colour of the car, the body kit, wheels etc which need to go on..


    This is a sketch of the eventual look with the motion blur added and the scene tilted to an angle to make things more dramatic...


    Here's a look at the bumper being drawn in manually in photoshop, still lacks the reflections from the surrounding as well as the art work to be "sprayed" on later...

    So far that's all.. will update when I have updates I suppose..

    Erv.

    reflections will come in later, need to get the base of the car going first, then add the custom paint work (some ah beng dragons) then finally slap on the reflections...

    Here's a look at the hood, with the front wheel completed

    Final PSD 300+megs... relatively small to my surprise... I've worked with PSDs that topped the 1gig mark before..
