Step 36

Add some flying sparks. Place image "sparks_2_by_mariasemelevich-d826onj" (File > Place). Resize that they were a bit larger than fire size, set Blending Mode to "Screen". Duplicate this texture 2 times (Cmd/Ctrl + J) and place on the remaining two fires. I merge layers with sparks in a single layer (Cmd/Ctrl + E) and remove some extreme sparks using a layer mask. That texture seemed more natural.


Step 37

So, one last part of this tutorial is to add the final details. At first I thought a little bit to adjust light and shadow to enhance the shadows and light in some places. Create "Fill with Overlay-neutral color (50% gray)" layer, Use Dodge and Burn Tools (O) to add some light on fires and a bit of space around them and strengthen the shadows of aliens. Also highlighted the armor by aliens in accordance with the main light source.


Step 38

Now it's time to brush from step 25. Create a new layer, set color #a5a5a5 and brush Opacity: 30%, then draw smoke in foreground of image. If you do not like some parts of it, you can remove it using Eraser Tool (E) but use brush form, which you makes smoke. For layer make Opacity: 86%.


Step 39

The last step is to add sparks. Place sparks image in working document and make sparks bigger (Cmd/Ctrl + T), place them on the front of the image. Set Blending Mode "Screen". Add a layer mask and remove some of sparks from the edges and top of the image (you can remove some of the places where the texture seems too dense) and you're done this image! Congratulations!
