Brushes Energy Ball
Create a new document with a size of 500? 700 pxls. Fill the background with black # 000000.
Step 1. Create a new layer and call it Flare. Fill this layer with black # 000000. Selecting the layer go to the menu Filter> Render> LensFlare (Filter> Rendering> Blick). Choose 105mmPrime and set the value Brightness (Brightness) at 120. Set the center of the flash to the center of the preview window.
Then go to the menu Image> Adjustments> Hue / Saturation (Image> Correction> Hue / Saturation). Check the box next to Colorize (Toning). Set the values Hue (Color tone) 30,
Saturation (Saturation) 50 and
Lightness (Brightness) 0.
Step 2. Duplicate the Flare layer. Rename the duplicated layer to Wave. Selecting the layer go to the menu Filter> Liquify (Filter> Plastic). Choose a tool TwirlClockwise (Twist) and apply the settings as shown in the image below (brushsize (brush size) 200, brushdensity (brush hardness) 50, brushpressure (brush pressure) 50). Create a rotation on the duplicated layer Flare (Flash)
Step 3. Create a new layer above the Wave layer. Name this layer Burst. Select # D18803 as the foreground color. Using the tool brushtool (brush) size 3 px, draw a little crossed lines. You can hold down the Shift key while keeping your lines smooth.
Step 4. Select the layer of Burst (Explosion), go to the menu Filter> Liquify (Filter> Plastic). Choose a tool TwirlClockwisetool (Twist) and set the same settings as in the previous step (brushsize (brush size) 200, brushdensity (brush hardness) 50, brushpressure (pressing the brush) 50). Move the cursor to the center of the intersecting lines, click and hold the left mouse button until a slight rotation is formed.
Step 5. Go to the menu Filter> Blur> RadialBlur (Filter> Blur> Radial Blur). Install method (method) on zoom (increase) and quality (quality) on good (good).
Move Blurcenter (center blur) to the right in the preview window. Click OK. Duplicate the Burst layer. Install blendmode (blend mode) duplicate layer on ColorDodge (Lightening basics).
Step 6. Download brushes for Photoshop. Load them into the brush palette and select the fl33 brush. Create a new layer and name it Electricity. Choose #FFFFFF as the foreground color and draw this effect with a suitable size.
Step 7. Right-click on the Electricity layer and change BlendingOptions (Overlay options). Activate OuterGlow (Outer Glow) and enter the values shown in the figure below:
–blendmode (blending mode) – colordodge (clarification basics);
–opacity (transparency) 65;
– noise (noise) – 0;
–technique (method) – softer (soft);
– spread (span) 4;
–size (size) – 5
At the moment we have an energy ball ready. Create a group on the layers panel and place there all the layers that we made to create the energy ball. Let’s call it powerball (energy ball). Change BlendMode (blending mode) of the Powerball group (Energy Ball) on screen (clarification). At this stage hide the group
Step 8. Download desert illustration. Insert a picture and adapt it to the size of the document. Using the tool Blurtool (blur) 150 px, blur the top of the desert. Then use the tool Erasertool (eraser), set in the settings mode Airbrush (Airbrush) and the size of 100 px, erase the lower part of the desert on the horizon, so the back black background begins to appear
Step 9. Upload a picture of a man. Cut the man using the tool Pentool (Pen) or filter Extract. Place the man in the middle of the desert image. Using the tool Erasertool (eraser) slightly wipe the area below his hands.
Using the tool Pentool (Feather), circle the man’s right hand area as shown.
Step 10. Make the Powerball group visible. Move the ball closer to the man’s palms.
Go to the panel Paths (Outlines), highlight the outline you drew and click LoadPath (load contour). Go to menu Select> Modify> Feather (Highlight> Modify> Feather (Refine Edge)). Set the Radius to 20 px. Now let’s go back to the layers panel, select the Powerball folder (Energy Ball) and click on the “Add layer mask” button.
Step 11. Create a new layer and call it Glow. Using the Brush tool (Brush), select the mode Airbrush (Airbrush), color # D18803 and size 200 px. Draw a big dot on the energy ball. Change blendmode (blend mode) of the Glow layer on Multiply (multiplication)
Step 12. Download images of dragons. Put a few dragons in the background. Go to menu Image> Adjustments> Hue / Saturation (Image> Correction> Hue / Saturation). Adjust the colors of the dragons so that they fit the image in color. Go to the menu Filter> Blur> GaussianBlur (Filter> Blur> Gaussian Blur). Set the blur for dragons to 4 px. Select a layer with a man, go to the menu Filter> Sharpen> Sharpen (Filter> Sharpness> Sharpness). This action allows us to better visually separate the background from the front.
Step 13. We are almost done. Now create adjustment layer (adjustment layer) Levels (levels) and select values 21, 0.96, 231. Then create a correction layer. Hue / Saturation (Hue / Saturation) and set the value Saturation (Saturation) on 15.
Step 14. The last thing you need to do – add your title to the film with arbitrary names of the filmmakers. I will not go into the details of these actions. Hope you all enjoyed this tutorial.
