In this tutorial we’re going to learn how to create a large 512×512 car icon, based on a lovely BMW Mini Cooper. We will be using Photoshop to create the icon, using a handful of different techniques.
Open up Photoshop and create a new document by 512x512px. Search the web for an image of a car that you want to create an icon for. In my case, I’m using a front on photo of a Mini Cooper that can be found here.
