In this tutorial, we’re going to create the Nokia 7610 mobile phone which is also known as the Supernova. This process

will include the use of the least opaque gradients in the aim of replicating the 7610’s characteristic translucency. In the

other part of the tutorial, we’re going to create a theme poster for the phone that reflects a supernova.
The difficulty with creating a phone is its 3d posture. Since we’re not creating a flat image, it will be a bit cumbersome

to mark out the shape with rulers or guidelines to position the various elements of the Nokia phone.
Step 1
We start off by setting up a 900 by 780 pixel document with a white background and a resolution of about 200 dpi.

Drawing a rounded rectangle, on the Tools bar, select the Rounded Rectangle Tool (U) and set its corners to 32 px on

the Tool Presets. Right click, and enter its Fill Colour as #575b5f

Step 2
Clear the new shape’s outline by selecting it with the Marquee Tool and pressing Delete. Go to Edit > Transform > Skew

or press Ctrl+T  and then right click to select Skew.

Not done yet with the shape, right click again (while still in the Free Transform mode) and choose Distort. Duplicate the

layer to use for later.

Select the Magnetic Lasso Tool (L) and use the edges of the rectangle.You can
press the Delete key when it appears your line is off the path.

Opacity to about 87%.

Step 6
Now within the select, drag from right to left with the Gradient Tool. Then clear the Marquee selection. Name this layer

“front bevel.”

Step 7
The shape of the Nokia 7610 is a little bit of that of a candy bar. So, hit Ctrl+T and select Warp and add a slight curve

to the top, right and bottom parts of the rectangle.

Place the previously duplicated layer over the “front bevel” layer and scale to fit within the bevel.

Set the Foreground Color to #f2f2f5 and select the Paint Bucket Tool (G). Click within the rounded rectangle duplicate

and name it “front 1,” if you’ve got a better name.
