Today we’re going to combine a few simple tools and techniques to produce an old and distressed blueprint effect in Adobe Photoshop. If you’re a bit of a whizz with 3D design software, this effect is ideal for creating cool technical drawings for your concept car, spaceship, or even character models. Export views of the front, side and top, and maybe even a wireframe view to combine into a cool presentation.
Alternatively, you could also find some existing real life technical drawings, like my example of an F-16 fighter, or even create the effect from a photograph.
