Ford Explorer Police Interceptor Utility Design Lesson in PNG
Select and trace the near side of the Ford Explorer Police Interceptor Utility clipart background and cut out the near side of the glass. Apply Inner Bevel to the layer containing the far side of the interior structure (Layer, Layer Style, Bevel & Emboss). Apply a light Gaussian Blur and then merge with the far side of the image surface. Select the horizon line on the layer with the near side of the glass surface. From the center, start drawing a clipart with a Paintbrush in white with opacity = 50% over the line, and darken the area below the line with Burn. Apply Inner Bevel to the layers with the glass and uprights/structure.
Create light clusters on a new layer under the body. Highlight the shape of the Headlights and fill it with the base color. Add some detail lines here with a small Paintbrush (see tabs). Fill the far side of the wheel (which is visible under the bottom) with black on a new layer just above the background layer. Create a new layer for the clip art shadows. Using Polygonal Lasso, select a strip that should be slightly shorter than the length of the Volkswagen ID.3, but high enough to connect the near and far wheels. Fill all 75% with black color and apply Gaussian Blur = 25 pixels.

Using Polygonal Lasso and considering the duplicated Ford Explorer Police Interceptor Utility clipart layer, trace around the body panel. Copy, Cut and Paste the panel and return it to its original position, zoom in to make sure that all the lines match. Circle the next panel, Copy, Cut - Paste and join the lines. Repeat this process for all the body panels. You will then have separate layers for each body panel. Once all the panels are convex, merge the layers so that you have one layer for the body.
Details like door handles and side mirrors (as well as wheels and headlights) can either enhance or ruin the rendering. Place the door handle in the recess; use Lasso, Dodge, and Burn. Start drawing the side mirror of the clipart on a new layer. Use Lasso to trace around the mirror, paint in the body color, and apply Dodge, Burn and Inner Bevel. On a new layer (behind the mirror layer), use Lasso to roughly select the shape that the mirror will project on the side of the car. Fill that area with a darker shade of the body color with opacity (opacity) = 75% and apply Gaussian Blur.
The background - a matter of taste for everyone, but here, because the upper surface of the car merges with the white plan, I was forced to make the background dark. The top half is filled with a dark color with a slight reddish tint and a 20% Radial gradient of sky blue at the source of light. The bottom half is lighter with a light reddish hue and a Grain filter on a duplicate layer that erased one side of the machine. The visualization of the Ford Explorer Police Interceptor Utility is complete...
...or if you don't know when to stop, you can do about the following. I applied the classic Lotus "Type 49" coloring. (that's why the gold wheels are here), highlighting parts of the body and changing the Hue/Saturation/Lightness. I also removed the Grain filter from the background floor and replaced it with a reflection of the car design. To do this, copy and paste the car and reflect it vertically. Reduce the opacity of the layer to 8%. That's it, get to work on the next sketch.
