Create a Cyborg Scene in Photoshop

Create a Cyborg Scene in Photoshop
In a sense, a cyborg has no origin story in the Western sense – a ‘final’ irony since the cyborg is also the awful apocalyptic telos of the ‘West's escalating dominations of abstract individuation, an ultimate self untied at last from all dependency, a man in space. In this photoshop tutorial, we will learn how to create a neon cyborg scene. First, we placed a city background, then add a robot and blended and add glows. Next added textures, rays brushes, and rain effect. For the final effect use the Camera Raw filter.
