Now, that we're done, click on all these layers from the "desert" to the "sky" to the light and dark layers then press Ctrl/Cmd + G to group these layers to avoid confusion on later steps. Rename this group to "Background". Note: Renaming a group is similar to renaming a layer. You would also notice that the layers have been hidden from view, to view them again just left click on the arrow beside the Group's name. See below:

Step 5: Create Lightning

In this step, we will add lightning bolts from the sky to make our image more epic. To start, create a new layer (Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + N) and name it "Lightning 1". Now, activate the Brush tool (B) and open the brush set: "Lightning Bolt Brushes V1" by GhostFight3r. To load them, simply, right click on our canvas through any layer and then click on the drop-down button as shown below:

You will now be prompted to this directory: Adobe Photoshop > Presets > Brushes so make sure that you have put the brushes within this folder. Now locate the brush set and click OK. Right click on the canvas again using your Brush tool (B) and now you'll notice that you have lightning brushes. Now, let's choose a brush:

  • Brush size: 600px
  • Hardness: Default
  • Opacity: 100%
  • Flow: 100%
