Step 5: C. Main Body

C. Main Body

(Image 1 - porta potty)


1. Duplicate and flip the trigger for a longer platform and erase/mask as needed so you only have one trigger

2. body source (porta potty)
3. masked
4. stretch the potty, and cover clone out the door area
5. put stretched potty on handle with a second  copy (squashed vertically) behind.
6. use match colour (trigger as source) to get it grey, and adjust brightness contrast.I also masked out and recoloured the white at the end with invert.

(image 2 - remote control, metal bits and structural details )

1. dvd remote source
2. masked and stretched
3. put on body of gun (top portapotty image) and set to "multiply" (lines adjusted later)
4. metal lid source masked
5. lid hit with "match colour" and brightness contrast adjusted, resized, duplicated and stacked
6. BBQ hinge source isolated
7. rings stacked with hinge to form Kickback handle put on gun
8. spraybottle nozzle source isolated, "match colour" and used as decorations above trigger

The gun was a little "boxy" so I added a 50's style shape

(image 3 - plastic box)

1. source plastic box masked
2. warp one end
3. warp both ends
4. match colour
5. insert layer behind the trigger source

At this point you can play with the patterns and lines of the dvd remote to fit them to the new pieces you added. I also adjusted some highlights in the pattern so the light was from the top right. Some general touchups to fill holes and blemishes on the masking.

That is amazing
I'd like to preface this comment by stating I'm not saying this to be mean, because your end result is pretty awesome.<br><br>The word 'Photoshop' in the title makes this whole thing immensely disappointing.
And why would that be?<br>Photoshop is a really powerful tool, it is really easy to learn and anyone can be good within month of using it.
But it means there isn't a real one out there.
well...you just don't make the moulds before you know what it is going to look like right?
See now, that is a completely wonderful answer right there.
Or, these could be the beginnings of a card model.
Oh I understand your point.<br>I though you meant to say that photoshop was bad/stupid or something. <br>Forgive me!
If your engineering your own paper (or card) models and just can't find (or make) just the right textures to paint your model with, this might just be the correct starting point.
Wow, that's amazing. I totally love seeing where you got the different pieces - makes the final result much more impressive.
Pretty intense work. Fantastic mastery of your tools.
This totally stands head and shoulders above the rest. So many useful principles, and creating a zombie hunting gun is such a totally unique take on the horror theme! This site is very lucky to get someone with such advanced skills writing a tutorial for them. :)<br><br>Oh, and I want one of these. Will they be available by Christmas?
if u want to know how to hack see me <br>send message
How many hours @ the PC ? ?<br><br>A
I think I did it in about 2 days over a weekend full time.<br>
What you've done here is really incredible.
pitty this is not real......
Fascinating, it's a really detailed job for something pointless, or it's art.<br> Nice art it is, but please follow this up by making it as a 3D replica.<br> <br> L<br>
Oh, my goodness...<br><br>I believe the correct phrase is <em>Yo! sick skillz, bro!</em>
