Step 52: Bottom of the lens

Draw a black part under the lens.

Step 53

Draw shadows under the created part.

Step 54

Paint the highlights with a low opacity brush.

Step 55

Draw a few points. Apply distortion to the created points so that they look realistic on the surface.

Step 56

Apply layer styles to points. Inner shadow(Inner Shadow).

Step 57

Draw a side part, then, on this part, apply Gradient Overlay (Gradient Overlay). See the screenshot below as an example.

Step 58: LCD Monitor

Let’s draw the LCD monitor mount. Draw a rounded rectangle. Move the pivot points on the left side closer to each other. Create a new layer on top of the attachment layer, convert this layer to a clipping mask. On the new layer, draw light highlights inside the mount loop.

Step 59

Create another layer to enhance the highlight.

Step 60

Draw the next part, it will be the cap of the mount.

Step 61

Create a new layer, and then draw light and shade within the contour of the lid attachment.

Step 62

Very neatly draw a highlight on the edge of the lid with a small soft brush.

Step 63

Draw the next part, and then apply a gentle gradient effect to this part using layer styles. Gradient Overlay (Gradient Overlay). On top of the created part, draw a light flare.

Step 64

Draw a rounded rectangle over the previous part. Draw chiaroscuro along the edges of the created figure.

Step 65

Draw the next rounded rectangle, modify the corners of the rectangle, as shown in the screenshot below. Apply layer styles Gradient Overlay (Gradient Overlay).

Step 66

Hold Ctrl + click on the thumbnail of the layer with the created polygon to load the active selection.

Step 67

Draw the same shape, but slightly smaller rectangle of dark color. Apply layer styles Inner Glow (Inner Glow) and Gradient Overlay (Gradient Overlay).

Step 68

Create a new layer. Draw a soft black line at the top. Reduce the opacity of the layer.

Step 69

Draw a small rectangle with rounded corners. As usual, apply layer styles. Gradient Overlay (Gradient Overlay).

Step 70

Draw a smaller rectangle with rounded corners. Apply layer styles Inner Shadow (Inner Shadow).

Step 71

Move this image to our working document, placing it on top of the monitor, and then press the Ctrl + Alt + G keys to convert the layer with the picture of nature into a clipping mask. Thus, the picture will be inside the created monitor.

Step 72: LCD Monitor Buttons

Draw a circle. Next, apply layer styles.

Step 73

Draw a smaller circle in the center of the previous circle. Apply layer styles.

Step 74

Draw a smaller circle, the color of the circle should be slightly lighter. Reduce the opacity of the layer.

Step 75

Draw a red circle. Apply layer styles.

Step 76

Create a new layer and a new layer, draw light and shade on the button.

Step 77

Draw more buttons on the LCD monitor.

Step 78

Draw an oval on the right side of the monitor. Apply layer styles Stroke (Stroke) and Gradient Overlay (Gradient Overlay).

Step 79

Draw a shadow.

Step 80

Draw small circles on the camera body. Use chiaroscuro to create buttons. See the screenshot below as an example.

Step 81

Draw a small circle, and then with a brush, add light highlights on top of this circle.

Step 82

Draw a white outline around the button.

Step 83

Apply to the white contour Gaussian blur (Gaussian Blur) to soften the outline.

Step 84

Reduce the opacity of the layer with a white outline. Treat the contour slightly with an eraser. Use a low opacity eraser.

Step 85

Move the layers with the button in a separate group. Holding the Alt + key while left-clicking the image of the button, drag the button to a new location, so you will create a duplicate of the button.

Step 86

Draw a small black rectangle with rounded corners, and then apply distortion to it.

Step 87

Create a duplicate of the rectangle you created in the previous step. Move the duplicate 1 px to the right. Draw light highlights at the top of the duplicate. Duplicate the rectangle again. Move a few pixels to the right, then paint over the duplicate in light gray.

Step 88

Create a new layer. Draw light and shade on the surface of the button. Do not forget to draw the shadows from the button on the camera body.

Step 89

Draw a black rectangle on the top panel of the camera body, and then apply a soft effect to it. Gradient Overlays (Gradient Overlay). Draw another rectangle for the side section. See the screenshot below as an example.

Step 90

Draw the next part. Apply layer styles to this part. Gradient Overlay (Gradient Overlay).

Step 91: Memory Card Slot

Create the next shape at the top of the camcorder. Next, on top of the layer with the created shape, create a new layer, and then convert this layer into a blending mask, and on this layer, draw a highlight.

Step 92

Create the next shape. As in the previous step, draw light and shade.

Step 93

Next, we will draw a shield for the memory card slot. Draw the next shape. Using a soft brush, lightly create light highlights on the edges.

Step 94

Next, draw the same part only smaller and lighter. Create a highlight on the surface of this part.

Step 95

Create a new layer. Hold Ctrl + click on the thumbnail of the layer with the part you just created to load the selection. Next, go Edit – Run Stroke (Edit> Stroke), the color of the stroke is white.

Step 96

Apply a small amount to the stroke. Gaussian blur (Gaussian Blur) to soften the stroke. Next, lightly process the stroke with an eraser and lower the opacity of the layer with the stroke.

Step 97

Draw the next detail in front of the memory card slot. As usual, add chiaroscuro.

Step 98

Draw a strip on top of the memory card slot. Next, draw chiaroscuro.

Step 99: Strap Mount

Next, we will draw a strap mount. Draw a clip and then apply layer styles to it. Gradient Overlay (Gradient Overlay).

Step 100

Create a selection around the outer surface of the mounting edge. Create a new layer and then paint it with a light gray tint.

Step 101

Create a new layer. Strengthen the highlight on the mounting edge. To do this, use a small brush.

Step 102

Draw the inside of the mount. Next, create a new layer and create a light and shade on the new layer.

Step 103

Next, draw a strap threaded through the mount of the camcorder. Draw a shape as shown in the screenshot below. To this strap detail, apply the option Overlapping pattern (Pattern Overlay). We can use the default pattern, which is included in the standard set of Photoshop. And also, we will apply Gradient Overlay (Gradient Overlay) to create a more natural-looking strap.

Step 104

Hold Ctrl + click on the thumbnail of the strap layer to load the selection. Create an adjustment layer Black– white(Black White). Thus, the color of the strap will have black and white shades.

Step 105: Text

Let’s add the model name to the surface of the camcorder. Type text. Next, press Ctrl + T and select the option Incline (Skew).

Step 106

Add a new text and apply the option Creating warped text (Warp text). This option is located in the top settings panel.

Step 107

Rotate the text until it fits into the surface of the camcorder.

Step 108

Add more text.

Step 109

To make it more realistic, add some shadow to the text below the lens. To do this, create a new layer on top of the text layer, then convert this layer into a blending mask. Using a soft brush, create shadows on top of the text.
