Today we will draw an interesting In-Car Media Multiplayer and Receiver.The tutorial is not an advanced tutorial and mostly creted by using Blending Options so it will be good for the beginners.
In order to understand easily and follow steps better i separated the shape into 3 parts in my mind.Left,Screen and Right Part.

Now let’s begin the tutorial.Please give your layer names by your own.

When you are on the new created layer,Right-Click the mouse and select Create clipping Mask and the result will be something like below picture.Then you can move whereever you want on that layer.

Now,we will add Anchor Points with Add Anchor Point Tool to give a different look.Draw the line however you want.


Now Right Click mouse and Stroke the path As you see in the below picture,stroke with brush but select a hard and low diameter brush.After that,hit Delete on your keyboard.

Step 15
Now it’s time to add the function names and a few words to show the properties of the player.Create a new layer.For the button functions and signs i used the Custom Shape Tool and Type Tool draw and write with blue color.

If you want to give a shiny and reflection effect then group all layer into 1 group.Duplicate the group and then Edit/Transform/Flip Vertical,move the duplicated group just under the main group,lower the opacity and erase a little.
Hope you like the tutorial.Feel free to ask any questions.
