Step 1

To begin with you need to go to Layer > New Fill Layer > Solid Color.

Step 2

You will see a little box appear, when it does make sure your setting's match mine. When they do press OK.

Step 3

Select a dark blue. I'm using #09283e. Press OK to configure your settings.

Step 4

Click on the layer that contains the image (see print screen below).

Step 5

Whilst on this layer go to Image > Adjustments > Color Balance.

Step 6

Match your Midtones setting's to mine. "Shadows" & "Highlights" should be set to 0. Press OK to configure and apply these settings.

Step 7

Now staying on the model layer go to Filter > Noise > Reduce Noise, then match your setting's to mine. Press OK to apply these settings.

Step 8

To make the image stand out a little go to Filter > Sharpen > Sharpen.

Step 9

Create a new blank layer above the model image layer.

Step 10

Now select a hard brush with the setting's below.

Step 11

Check your foreground colour is white (#FFFFFF).

Step 12

On the dark blue bits draw squiggly lines going down (see image below).

Step 13

You now want to go to Filter > Pixelate > Mosaic. A small box will appear, set the cell size to 44 square.

Step 14

Now lower the layers opacity to "40%".

Step 15

Create another blank layer & then select the "Pattern Stamp Tool".

On the box closer to the left of the screen click the down arrow and select the Grunge Spots brush.

On the box closer to the right of the screen click the down arrow and select the Grey Dirt Pattern.

Click around the edges of the image so the pattern prints out (see image below).

Change the mode from "Normal" to "Overlay".

Step 16

Now paste the texture I provided you over the models face, rotate it a little as well!

Now change the mode from "Normal" to "Lighter Color".

Step 17

Now using the colour white as your foreground color, use the sparkle brush to cover the image in sparkles (on another new layer).

Step 18

Select the eraser tool > Click the arrow that points down on the box that's closer to the left of the screen > Now select the Grunge Spots brush as your eraser > Now where the red circles are click the eraser in those areas to erase some of the sparkles.

Step 19

Go to Layer > New Fill Layer > Solid Color, then check your setting's match mine below.

Select a dark red colour. I'm using #5b0606 as my color.

Step 20

Do a right click on any layer in the layers module and press Merge Visible. Now duplicate your layer and shrink it till it's around the same size as the image below shows.

Click your eraser tool and your grunge spots brush should still be your current eraser brush. If so click around the edges of the duplicated image so you are left with the head and some of the chest. Then move it into the gap between the arm and body (as shown below).
