View Full Version : First full photoshop rendering: car

11-28-2005, 03:14 AM
i took a very loose and quite frankly rubbish doodle i made while in a lecture and scanned it in. i spent a couple of hours on photoshop playing about and this is what i got:


I used warm and cold colours to make this pop. the cold was the green, the warm was the purple. it was certainly interesting. i had a lot of fun and i've learned a lot about how to improve. my next task will be to do this to a 3d sketch as opposed to this crappy 2d one.

the original sketch, just for reference:


im aware of some little things that aren't quite right, like the front splitter, but i needed to get back to doing uni work so i gave up.

let me know what you think. C and C as always. :)

Hello Simon, a fellow Brummie! Yes I think we will all have noticed the front splitter ;) A great car, but please don't go speeding down these Staffordshire lanes!

I wish to have a car like this one! Beautiful color and shape! It is like one of those concept cars!

I think you did very well! What is a splitter???

Excellent...I, too, need a deinition of "front splitter".

YEPPERS! Splitter is lost on me too. Must be a "girl thing" (wink).

What amazes me is when people say they are posting their 'crap doodle' and I am looking at the piece with my mouth open in awe! I wish I could do such wonderful "crap doodles"! And I would not mind owning that car either.

thanks for all the comments :)

Barry: i'll try not to ;)

Janet: Thanks, thats the style i was going for :)

Elaine/kristen/babs: Sorry, im so used to talking to car people at university! the front splitter is that sticking out bit on the bottom of the front of the car. so called because it 'splits' the airflow :p
