Final Image Preview
1.StepOpen a new document with (w:900px and h:1355px), and white background.
2.StepNow open your main image, in this case I used a image of a boy found in Crestock.com. Name this layer “Boy”. Now use the tool of your choice to extract the background photo, I used the Pen tool (press P) and created a layer mask to extract the image.When you finish tracing the path around the image click the right mouse button and choose make selection.then in the layers palette click on the Add layer mask button to extract the image.
3.StepNow use a simple superimposition technique to draw some elements in the composition. Print a copy of the image and use as a base to add some elements to it. Follow the examples of the images below to get an idea of how to do this. There is no rule in this stage, just follow your imagination.
When you are satisfied with the sketches, scan the sketches and open in Photoshop. Position the sketches above “Boy” layer and use Select -> Color range with fuzziness 120 and hit ok to select the black areas of the sketch. If everything is right you have something like this image. Now name this layer sketch.
4.StepI used this texture of metal to form the background. You can download this texture here or you can get it by download Psd file of this tutorial below. Open the metal texture an place above background layer, name this layer “Texture”. Change the blend mode layer to Multiply and opacity to 30%. Use Burn tool (press O) to burn some areas in our texture.
5.StepCreate a new layer below the layer “Boy”. Download some water paint brushes and splatter brushes from Deviantart. Use Eyedropper tool (press I), to get a color swatch of the clothing image. Pick a color sample of the shirt, pants and arms. Use different opacities and create a new layer for each color. Then press Ctrl+G and group all brush color tighter, name this group “Body brushes”.
6.StepReturn the “Boy” layer and click the Layer mask to hide some areas of the image. This process will integrate the brush and the sketches in the image. Choose a water paint or splatter brush with black color and use different opacity, start paint over the mask to hide some areas.
7.StepCreate a new layer and name “Shadows”. Select the Lasso tool (press L) and adjust the feather to 30px. Create a shape on the floor to simulate a shadow. Right click, select Fill to fill with black color.
Then go to Filter -> Blur -> Motion blur (angle 0, distance 999px) and reduce the layer opacity to 40%.
Copy this layer press Ctrl+J and reduce opacity to 30%. In the layers pallet select all shadows layer together and press Ctrl+G to group this layers.
8.StepCreate a new layer, name this layer “Line circles”. Select Elliptical marquee tool (press M), hold shift key and draw a perfect circle, then go to Edit -> Stroke: 3px black to color and hit ok.With selection active go to Select -> Transform selection and reduce the size of the circle, use 1px black color this time. Put this layer above “Texture” layer.
Add a layer mask ( click in the layer mask button ) in the layers pallet and hide some areas to create a nice effect. Change color to black and use water paint brushes or splatter brushes with black color and low opacity to hide some areas.
9.StepCreate another layer and name it “Black bars”. Select Rectangular marquee tool (press M), and draw some black bars like the image bellow.
Press Ctrl+T and rotate 45 degrees. One more time press layer mask icon in the layers pallet, select color black and use Brush tool to hide some areas.
When you finish reduce layer opacity to 20% or 10%. Then group (press G) “Line circles” and “Black bars” layers together, name this group “Circle effects”.
10.StepAlmost done. Create a new layer and call this layer “Black lines”. Use Pen tool (press P) and create angles and intersecting lines.
Open brush panel and adjust spacing to 425%, select a hard round brush with black color and 1px, press P to Pen tool right click and choose Stroke path without simulate pressure and hit ok.
Repeat this process in other areas, make some circles too, try make things like angles. Make straight lines and dotted lines on separate layers. Finish this step masking or erase some areas in this lines. Group all black lines layers together.
