Here we will tell you how to make a Pontiac G8 wallpaper in Photoshop CS4.

Start working with picture of a Pontiac G8 car (I use this image), having the sizes of 1280×876px and 72 dpi.

On a new layer (Create new layer) we’ll select the Brush Tool (B) to dark out the bottom part of the picture, choosing the black color for this operation.

Next we’ll represent a separate file of 1280×1024 px and 72 dpi, applying on it the Pen Tool (P) and the Convert Point Tool for drawing an element, like the one from below:

Next try rasterizing the element’s layer. In this case we’ll need creating a new layer and then while pressing CTRL button, mark out the corresponding layers and then press CTRL+E. For this layer we’ll choose also the option Filter>Blur>Motion blur

Make two copies of the last layer. Press Ctrl+Alt buttons and click two times the button on the keyboard indicating downwards direction. Using the Free Transform option, situate the copies as they are on the picture:

Put together the layers containing the lines (press CTRL button to mark out the corresponding layers and then press CTRL+E). The black background is convenient in this case, it just doesn’t exist. Place on it only the paste together lines’ layers.

Make a copy of this layer and use the Free Transform option to turn over the copies and compress them a little by vertical direction.

Clean out that part of the lines situating in front of the car. We’ll just make a mouse click on the layers’ palette on each of the lines’ layers on Add a Mask selection and use a standard brush of black color to clean those fragments we are interested in.

Create a new layer under the lines’ layers where we’ll apply a standard brush to represent an illuminating nuance by outlining accurately the lines. The brush’s color is #287C96
