We’re going to paint our red car green. So you see I’ve got the green car here. So look.
Let’s just jump in and get started. I’m going to look over here in my layers panel at the bottom of the layers panel. I have a layer mask icon hit that to add a layer mask. Basically, here’s all a mask works.
Your mask is white. Whatever is white. You can see I’m going to fill this with black. You see that one that’s filled with black. Everything is hidden
Three So black means you can’t see it white means you can see it. All right, I actually want to fill this with black this woman hit command-i or control. I that’s going to fill it with black. It’s going to just invert the white to black. I’m going to zoom in on the car and I’m going to use my brush tools. We need the letter B, we’re gonna brush and I’m going to make the brush a little bit smaller anytime you need to adjust the size or hardness of the brush simply right click. I’m going to make this a relatively hard brush make about 75% and I’m just going to paint wherever I want the green color to go. So. Give me a second and I’ll have all of this color painted right in and I will be right back to finish this tutorial.
Okay, I just like that we have painted in over the entire body of the car. If I alt or option click on the mask can see I have this kind of messy looking mask here, which I can clean up a look. it more if I need to but it looks pretty good out here. One of the really cool things about masking. One of the advantages has over erasing is let’s say Obviously we don’t want the windows to have this green tint so I can just go ahead and grab my brush tool again. Make sure my foreground color is set to Black I can zoom in here and just paint black over this whole entire area here and get rid of all of the green that normally would be filling that area and just like that. We there we go. We’ve got to go ahead and got rid of that green there right just to touch up the top.
The door there, and that’s great. And in the same way if you need to add more green you paint white somewhere, right if I want to make over here very green. I can just paint in white over there. Oops. I don’t want that. I can just paint black over that to hide all that green again. So just like that. We have gone ahead and used masking to just change the color of this car very realistically and then here’s a finished result where I just went ahead and added some coloring to correct headlights and wheels and the windows and we went from a red car to a green car very quickly using A layer mask. So that’s it for this one guys. Hope you enjoyed it. Go check out there.
