Motion Blurred Shape

1. Make a 400×400 document. Now press “D” on your keyboard to reset the foreground and background colors to black and white. Make sure your background is black.

2. Make a new layer and grab the custom shape tool. Use this Custom Shape I used or experiment with a different one:

With the shape selected we can now apply Filter>Render>Clouds. You can now deselect the selection. Go to Filter>Sketch>Chrome and use these settings:

But it can be even more cooler if we added some blur to it to give it more of a abstract feel to it. So go to Filter>Blur>Radial Blur and once again use these settings:
