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.
Rotate it by -60 degrees.
Place it above all layers. Change the blend mode to Screen.
Now open up the planet stock image. Drag it into the main file. Press Ctrl + T. And enter the values in the Options bar. What we are trying to achieve is to use the glow of the planet and combine it with the model below.
Adjust lighting using the Curves command.
Slightly reduce the saturation.
And now hide all those hard edges of the image using Layer Mask.
Change the blend mode to Screen.
If still there are any hard edges just hide the using a soft round brush by painting inside the mask.
Add a new Curves adjustment layer at the very top in the layers palette. Adjust the mid tone values slightly.
And finally sharpen up the image. But we can't apply sharpness filter to all layers at once. We will use the Apply Image command to achieve this. First create a new layer above all layers in the layers palette. Go to Image > Apply Image. Make sure the "Merged" option is selected in the dialog box. Press OK. This creates merged copy of the composition in our new layer.
Now we can apply unsharp mask filter to this layer. Go to Filter > Sharpen > Unsharp Mask. Enter the value and press OK. And there is the final image.
