Mustang Shelby GT-H - Steps

By Lizkay
the step-by-step making-of thingy of the Shelby Mustang painting I did.. so what's happening there:

1. the 4H pencil sketch, 12 minutes without cleaning and scanning.

2. Basecolor layer under the sketch added, also cleaned...

3. golden stripes and grill added...

4. shading added (gradient tool and lasso tool)

5. rims painted, colored the sketch-lines to fit the base color of the car (instead of having them black, to do so you need to lock the pixels on the sketch layer)

6. Light added (gradient tool and lasso tool, layer set to "overlay")

7. shiny details painted on, merged all the other layers together, took a small brush, with orange color, set to "linear dodge" with around 8-12% opacity. Also added a shine refelection on the headlights and the glass parts.

8. "mood" layer and shadow added...

I really must try this one day. It's just the actual drawing of it that puts me off. :P

Watch the roofline next time.:) It slopes slightly uowards here, but it needs to slope downwards if the car is to be right in perspective.

i luv it and i wantto try it but im not good at drawing cars... what about a step by step on drawing cars?

hehehe :D what about that?
Lizkay's avatar
hmm... yeah, I could try to upload the drawing steps as well, I just need to scan the steps inbetween, the digital steps are easier to "capture" but I think I am going to do the drawing steps thing with the next car drawing ;)


Is there any chance you can explain how you colored the sketch-lines to fit the base color in more depth?? Aswell as the final "mood" layer aswell..

This would be much appreciated!!

To color the sketch lines the sketch needs to be prepared using the 'Channel Marking Method'
this tutorial explains how I do that and also how I color them ;) [link]

The mood layer is usually a gradient of various colors, I used one going from orange to violet there, it's a seperated layer above the drawing set to 'overlay' to give that effect :)
Lizkay... You are a star!

Thanks a lot.. And keep doing what your doing! :D
