Detailed Circuitry

Start by mapping out the area you want to fill with circuitry in black

Zoom up 400% and using a mid grey, start drawing lines to simulate the circuit with the pencil tool

Keep drawing until you fill the areas up, it's time consuming but pixel art is just that

Zoom back out to 100%

Now choose a texture, i chose this one but experiment, you can get different effects depending on the texture

I pasted the texture into the circuit area, then set the blending mode to darken, but again, experiment, different blending modes give different effects

Thats it, most commonly used in winamp skins but also good in interfaces
