What you'll be creating

This image was created while playing with some stock images and resource i just found from the internet. I try to picture the spirit of freedom of Street Dancer by using symbols like wings and flying birds. The challenge is creating a captivating design by using restricted color palette like red, black and white to bring a powerful contrast. The lens flare was added in the last step, because i think it can make the composition look more sleek and cool. To follow this tutorial, you need Photoshop CS4 or newer.
