Making in Mummy movie poster in Photoshop

In this tutorial you will learn how to create a poster for the movie The Mummy. We will create the character of an evil woman with two pupils in the eye. We will also add some ancient hieroglyphs in the form of a tattoo on the face of a woman. Hope you enjoy making this poster.

1. New document

Step 1

Create a new document of size 750 x 610 px. You can create a larger canvas, but with the same ratio. Add a picture of a woman, change the size (Ctrl + T) and place so that there is only a part of the face, as shown below.

Step 2

Go to Filter> Liquify (Filter – Plastic) and using the tool Forward Warp Tool (W) (Warp), raise the eyebrow by the arc and the edge of the eye to create an evil look.

Step 3

Open the image of the stone sphere, transfer it to the working document, change the size (Ctrl + T) and rotate a little. Place the sphere on top of the eye, as shown below.

Step 4

Add a layer mask to the stone sphere layer. Invert mask color from white to black Ctrl+I.

Step 5

Choose a tool Brush tool (AT) (Brush) stiffness 0% color white. Make sure the mask is active, not the layer, and show the texture in the eye area.

Step 6

Add styles to this layer. Inner shadow (Inner shadow) and Gradient overlay (Gradient overlay). The gradient colors are # 5f5858 and # 461807.

Step 7

Above all layers add two adjustment layers.

Brightness / Contrast (Brightness / Contrast).

AND Hue / Saturation (Hue / Saturation).

Step 8

Install Font Lovecraft’s diary or any other with ancient symbols and add text as shown below.

Step 9

Add styles to the text layer.

Install Fill (Fill) 0%

DropShadow (Shadow)

InnerShadow (Inner shadow)

OuterGlow (External glow)

InnerGlow (Internal glow)

Bevel and Emboss (Embossed)

ColorOverlay (Overlay color)

Step 10

Open the dark grunge texture and transfer to the working paper. Scale to fit the document size (Ctrl + T), change the blending mode to Soft light (Soft light) and install Opacity (Opacity) by 50%.

2. Making an eye

Step 1

Add an eye texture to the job. Reduce the size (Ctrl + T) and position as shown below. Tool Elliptical Marquee Tool (M) (Oval area) create a selection.

Step 2

With the active selection, create a layer mask by clicking on the corresponding icon at the bottom of the layers panel.

Step 3

Tool Brush tool (AT) (Brush) black on the mask hide the upper part of the iris.

Step 4

Add two adjustment layers as a clipping mask.

Brightness / Contrast (Brightness / Contrast)

AND Gradient Fill (Gradient fill). Change the layer’s overlay mode to Color (Chromaticity)

Gradient colors:

  • # f98100 – position 25%
  • # d4a832 – position 39%
  • # 1f1f1f – position 50%
  • # 332821 – position 76%

3. Creating the effect of two pupils in one eye

Step 1

In the layers panel with the Ctrl pressed, select the three top layers (two corrective and the eye layer) and convert them into a smart object. To do this, right-click on one of the selected layers and select Convert to Smart Object (Convert to smart object). Rename the layer to Human Eye (Human eye). Duplicate this layer (Ctrl + J). Resize the copy (Ctrl + T) by about 75% and place it as shown below.

Step 2

Add a layer mask to the copy layer and hide with a black soft brush some areas to get a smooth transition, as shown below.

4. Creating an eye glow effect

Step 1

Now we will add several layers to add color and create a glow effect. Above all layers create a new layer. Select the soft round brush color # dcad5a and paint over the eye area as shown below. Vary the opacity of the brush.

Set the blending mode of this layer to Overlay (Overlap).

Step 2

Create a new layer. Use a soft round brush of small diameter and white color to paint highlights on the iris. Use the same brush, but with a larger diameter and with a slight opacity, paint over the right eye area.

Set the blending mode of this layer to Overlay (Overlap).

Step 3

Create a new layer. With a soft brush, color white draw highlights to add a lighting effect. This time we will not change the blending mode and leave it at Normal (Ordinary).

Step 4

For a more realistic effect, I added the original title to the work. Open the flare texture and move it to work. Resize (Ctrl + T) and place under the heading. Change the blending mode to Screen (Screen). To change the highlight color, add an adjustment layer. Gradient Fill (Gradient fill) as a clipping mask. Change the blending mode to Hue (Color tone).

Gradient colors:

  • # 703112 – position 0%
  • # d99f00 – 64% position
  • #ffffff – position 100%

5. Sand dust and cloud of smoke

Step 1

Open the sand blast texture. Change the blending mode to Screen (Screen). Duplicate this layer several times and place in different places as shown below.

Step 2

Then add a texture with a cloud of smoke. Change the blending mode to Screen (Screen), resize (Ctrl + T) and place in the bottom right corner of the canvas. Add adjustment layer Levels (Levels) as a clipping mask.

Step 3

Above all layers add adjustment layer Brightness / Contrast (Brightness / Contrast). Paint with a black soft brush over the mask to hide the correction and lighten some areas.

6. Electric lightning effect and sharpness

Step 1

To add an extra lighting effect, open the zipper texture and move it to work. Change the blending mode to Screen (Screen). Add a correction layer to change the color of the zipper. Gradient Fill (Gradient fill) as a clipping mask.

Gradient colors: # ffae00 and # fd7c00.

Add a layer mask and a black soft brush to hide some areas of the texture.

Step 2

Finally, you can add sharpness to the image using the filter. High pass (Colour contrast). To do this, stand on the topmost layer in the layers panel and press the key combination Shift+Ctrl+Alt+E. Apply to this merged layer Filter> Other> High Pass (Filter – Other – Color Contrast). Change the blending mode of this layer to Overlay (Overlap).

Final result:
