Step 11

Set the background color to black by pressing D and carefully remove the parts of ships where imposed on the valve box and go beyond it.

Step 12

Here’s how I did. I also increased the size of the brush-cleaned stiffness and walked her to the contact points between the ship and fittings. Here is the result.

Step 13

Now let’s add a reflection of ships. Duplicate group “ship” (the short key Cmd/Ctrl+ J). Press Cmd/Ctrl+ T to transform and click RMB and from the drop down list, select “Flip Vertical” or go to Edit > Transform > Flip Vertical. Place the ships as shown in the figure.

Step 15

Adding the effect of fire! Because the ship combat and hunt for a hero. Create a new layer (the short key Cmd/Ctrl+ Shift + N), click on the icon in the form of a sheet in the Layers panel. It should be mentioned groups with the ships. Select the Brush Tool (B) on the toolbar. Set it to the following settings: Size: 55px. Hardness: 0% Opacity: 40% flow: 100%.

Step 16

Choose a color #ad2008 and just put a few sources of fire on both sides of the ship. Then repeat the same thing, but change the brush size and color on #f2c21b and then on #f4ed33. Here’s how I did it. You cannot worry about what does not look very realistic. This element has the character of a small detail.

Step 17

Now combine the two groups with a layer of fire ships in one group (the short key Cmd/Ctrl+ G) .Here is the result conversion of ships.

      Thanks for letting us know about the link! It appears the artist took his stock offline but I’ve posted an alternative link to it.

  1. Can someone please help me the link for the glass shatter images is not working I can´t find them. Hope somebody can send me a link that is working

  2. Excellent Job … It requires lots of concentration and imaginative power to do such a composition … Hats of to you for this hard work ….

  3. Всем привет! Все комменты не читал, может кто-то уже написал. Урок отличный! Только один недочёт, заметил всё-таки. Винты надо было по гаусу размыть. Я размыл их. А то, получается, верталёт летит а винты не крутятся, стоят. Спасибо за урок!!! Урок классный! :)

    1. Спасибо большое! Я очень ценю это! Я старалась. Нет, вы первый :) С точки зрения реалистичности то все верно. Я не стала этого делать потому что много разных эффектов и винты почти не видно. Я очень рада, что вы сделали такое открытие! Значит мои старания были не напрасны! Будут вопросы, обращайтесь :) и спасибо большое еще раз!

  4. I am currently working on this and I wanted to figure out in step 34 where you add a white to transparent gradient you show to select a gradient from black to white so I wanted to find out if this was a image error or ?

      Hi! No there is not a black to white and white to transparent. Black can not be there. Look near numeral. This is my shortcoming in imposing numbers. Sorry. Thank you for your comment.
