In Part 2 (of two) of this tutorial learn how you can create the effect of object rapid movement using as an example a fast moving car.
Final Image Preview
Open PSD file that was created on Part 1 of this tutorial. Duplicate car layer by selecting car layer and using Ctrl+J. On new layer (Car Copy) go to Filter > Blur > Motion Blur:
Apply Edit > Transform > Skew to this layer:
Change blending layer mode to Dissolve.
Finally set Opacity for this layer to 10%.
Select Eraser Tool with soft-edged brush and erase dust in the hood area and side of the car.
Duplicate layer with the car once more (Car Copy 2) and merge this layer with layer we’ve just been working on (Car Copy) . As a result we get three layers: background layer, layer with the car and the layer with processed car (it’s situated above others).
Select top layer and go to Filter > Blur > Motion Blur.
Change blending layer mode to Lighten.
Select Eraser Tool with soft-edged brush again and erase the exposed part in hood area.
Merge all layers with the car and we will have again only two layers: background layer and car layer. Duplicate car layer using Ctrl+J and go to Filter > Liquify for copied layer.
On the end you should have something similar to what i have:
Change blending layer mode to Linear Dodge (Add).
Select Eraser Tool with soft-edged brush one more time and erase everything from the front side of the car.
Create a new layer on top. Go to Gradient Tool, select Transparent Rainbow (standard Photoshop gradient) and make sure option Linear Gradient is selected. Fill new layer with this gradient.
Go to Edit > Transformer > Warp with layer selected.
Select Eraser Tool with soft-edged brush one more time and erase gradient from the front side of the car.
Change blending layer mode to Overlay.
Create a new layer, assign Soft Light blending mode for it. Pick up soft-edged brush and using the Brush Tool lighten the nearest headlight and the hood around the headlight and darken the edges of the image. To lighten we use white color (#ffffff), to darken – the black one (#000000). In the end set the layer opacity down to about 30%.
And our tutorial is finished.
