    give me two seconds. nevermind. someone beat me to it.

    btw, R8 is my absolute favourite car. I'd take it over a Veyron or Lambo or Ferrari any day.

    Super helpful, thanks guys.
    Quick question though, if you don't mind, what kind of tool do you use to perfectly get the edge of the car? Fuzzy tool doesn't work well for me

    I would love to learn how to do this.

    photoshop. takes just a few seconds. photoshop Touch in the app store will also allow you to do it, but not as pretty as being able to use a mouse. For simple objects or images to erase the background is simple though. For this one, I would have used the computer.

    yes, like the above said, photoshop.
    for sharp edges like the shown icons, i used pen tool to outline the car, masked it and saved as different sizes.

    oh, also i used gradient tools to fill in the windows to make it look more "icon-like".

    glad to be of help.
