Step 40 - Metal
Then add the metal stick for the sign from another sign, repeat the process: select the metal part with lasso tool, add layer mask and resize it (ctrl+t) to fit the sign
Duplicate (ctrl+J) the stick layer and use the layer in multiply mode, then reduce the opacity to 70 from the sign and the stick
Step 41 - Cracks

With a soft round brush (2px size) with orange tone make strokes to the sign and to the model’s weapon, you can make them softer by passing the blur tool over them.
Step 43 - Fire
Add fire close to the sign, erase the edges with a layer mask and use the layer in screen mode with 90% of opacity
Step 44 – Fire Reflection
