Truck Template

Recommended Posts

Hey Damien,

 

I would love to be able to create a dump truck collage for my client. Is this something you can help me with as I'm unable to find any templates online for it. Here is a example of something similar but i would like it in a truck instead of a train.

Well, I figure the first step is to either sketch a truck shape (literally sketch it, pencil on paper) or find a truck photo you like that you can trace.  Do you have one in mind?

ok I have traced it. Does it matter what size you trace it?

No, the size doesn't matter at all, that's one of the reasons to use the pen tool.

May I see a screenshot, showing your layers panel?

I haven't done anything in the layers panel yet. I just sketched it to paper

Oh, crap, sorry!

No, you only needed to sketch it if it was coming from your own head.

Since you already have a file, you need to trace it with the Pen Tool.

Somehow you stopped the path then started it again.

Terrific. Now you can turn off the "Layer 0" so that only the path layer is visible.  Then may I see the whole screenshot?

Totally ok.  You couldn't fit a photo nicely into there anyway.

May I see it without the marching ants?

Now you have to plan the slices.  How many photos do you intend to put in here?

Definitely.  Well done.

Now, can you add a blank layer on top, and use your brush tool (in red or green or yellow or something) to show me roughly how you'd like to divide it up into the individual photo pieces?
