Realistic metal perforations in Photoshop: Pixel Playground

Realistic metal perforations in Photoshop

Explore Pixel Playground at lynda.com.

Continuing with Bert’s red truck project, this week we learn how to create realistic metal perforations in Adobe Photoshop. This project is simple but effective since it’s created from just a few colors and layer effects. Bert starts out by creating a black oval on a red background. Next, he applies a series of layer effects to give it depth and a consistent light source. He completes the technique by offsetting the various effects and applying some texture via the add noise filter.

Check out this week’s lesson to get started weathering your chrome surfaces, and check back again next week for another Pixel Playground tutorial from Bert.
