Turn any photo into a dot grid artwork with these Photoshop actions. You'll get great results with dots that change size. They get larger in brighter areas and smaller in darker areas. Free download available.
Try to position the circle so that the girl was in its center. I did not like much the dark areas of the circle, so I cleaned them, using Eraser Tool (E).
Create a new layer. Use two brushes in the form of cubes and draw a small explosion of them. On the Brush Presets (where we exposed Angle) you can flip the brush horizontally and vertically. Use it in different ways to create one brush diverse. I used a Eyedropper Tool (I) to orange color was the same as the color of the sky. To quickly switch between colors, click "X" on keyboard. To make the default color (Black & White) use "D". Place the cubes in different places and with different color (you can add a little near model's sneakers) so it will be much more interesting.
Create a new layer. Now I have drawn from brushes of small circle (I used almost all of brushes once). After I drew it, I used Skew Tool (Edit > Transform > Skew) and correct perspective of circle.
Once the circle is ready, I Duplicate it (Cmd /Ctrl+ J) twice, changing their size and is located under sneaker of model.
Create a new layer, above the adjustment layer "Black & White". Use a soft brush (Opacity: 50%, Hardness: 0%, Color: White), apply this layer to the layer with the model (hold Option/Alt and click on it). Draw on the hand model a little reflection.
We ended up with a drawing and start adding digital noise. Again, create a new layer and fill it black color (D, then X then Cmd/Ctrl + Del). Convert layer for Smart Filters (Filter > Convert for Smart Filters). Add first filter "Fibers" (Filter > Render > Fibers...) and second "Add Noise" (Filter > Noise > Add Noise...).
Now we turn to settings for this layer. Set a blending mode "Overlay" and Opacity: 65%. Add a layer mask and invert it (Cmd/Ctrl + I).
Use a soft brush (Size: 125px, Opacity: 60%, Hardness: 0%) and draw (on a layer mask) a noise, where you like. I drew it under the sneaker of model and a bit on the circle.
That's it! The picture is completely ready! One note, if you want to color version of the city, then turn off the adjustment layer "Black & White" above the city group.
