Step 12

This is the composition I created :


Step 13

After destroying the city, next is to burn it. Just open the spark picture in the canvas. Scale it to fit the scene. Place it in the position where needed. Make sure that this spark layer is underneath all the destroyed building layers in the layer panel. Set the blending of this layer to Screen.


Step 14

Add fire to the canvas. Remember to scale accordingly to fit the canvas and locate it where needed. Set its blending to Screen at 100%. Mask the edge a little bit .


Step 15

Duplicate the spark picture and place it to the area behind the industry building. Still set the blending for this layer to Screen at 100%. Mask unnecessary parts of the picture.


Step 16

Try to play around with the spark by duplicating this spark layer more, scale and locate the duplication layers where needed to find desired result. Do not stick to get the result exactly similar to the one I created. We can do experiment in this part. Here is the result I create:


Step 17

Add more fire to the canvas. Open the fire stock picture again (or we can duplicate the fire layer in step 14) and make sure this layer is above the city layers created in step 5-6.


Step 18

Next, select the tower layer in the layer panel. With this layer selected, go to Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Color Balance. Give this color balance layer a clipping mask. Color balance will make the color of the tower reddish yellow to fit the surrounding.


Step 19

Open another fire stock picture. I named the layer for this picture flame in the layer panel. Place this flame in front of the building. Set its blending to Screen at 100%. Like usual, scale it accordingly. Mask unnecessary parts.


Step 20

Add more spark and fire to the scene in front of building layer. Just try to mess around with fire again to get the desired result.


Step 21

After finding the result, I decided to make the scene a little bit darker. To achieve this I create a new layer filled with black and set the blending of this black layer (I named this layer black in layer panel) to Soft Light at 100% opacity. Create this layer a layer mask and with a very soft brush at 20-30 0pacity, stroke some parts to hide it. Please see the illustration picture to find which parts are. (highlighted in red)
