First of all, we want to change the colour of the car, I'll be using a light yellow colour. Right, you should have one layer. Make a new layer by clicking the New Layer button at the right bottom corner of the Layers Pallet.
Now, in the new layer, click on what colour you wish to use for the car to be. I'm using a light yellow (As stated above). In the newly made layer make the Opacity 30%. Now select the Paintbrush Tool and paint round round the whole car. Except the Tires, Rims, Lights, Windcreen.. etc. Just re-colour the car base. You can use the Polygonal Lasso Tool if you wish to select bits and colour them. That's what I used anyway. If done correctly, should there be something along these lines:
Now, let's start with the windscreen shall we?
Make another layer, and select a colour of your choice. I'll be using a red colour. But this time, set the Opacity in this layer to 20%. Paint around the windscreen/door windows with the colour you choose to make the windows be. If done correctly, you should have something like this:
Now for the lights. I'll be choosing a simple orange colour, but any colour should be fine. And set the Opacity on this layer to 30%. If all goes well, here's something similar to what you should have:
Now here comes the hard part - The Rims. You have two options.
Make a new layer, set the Opacity to 30%, and colour in the Rims. Any colour will do, I'll be using a dark orange. You should have something like this:
Find some different Rims altogether. Find another car at the same angle as the one you are modifying. When you've found your car, paste it into a new layer, cut around the Rim, copy it, paste it. Edit it as you wish for it to fit into the car you are modifying. Here's something I got:
Congratulations, you have finished it. If you followed the tutorial you'll be able to modify other car bits. And come up with other stuff, follow my guidelines and you'll be okay with it.
After editing a few things, here's what I got.
I hope you found this tutorial helpful, have fun!
