Name it as "ground" or whatever you like.

Add layer mask to erase the outside part of this ground to make it look like being inside the circle actually:

clip_image049

Change the mode to Multipy 70%:

clip_image050

Step 11

Open crack stock. Move it, resize and transform as we usually do in previous steps:

clip_image052

Change the mode of this layer to Soft light 100%. Add layer mask to clear rough edges:

clip_image053

Step 12

In this step I want to add some tiny burning effects on the cracked ground. Make a new layer which is set on the top. Take brush with color #fbe29d with very small size ( I use 2-3 px) and paint inside cracked parts. Set the mode to Overlay 100%:

clip_image055

You may not see a very obvious change after this step but don't worry. We will make it look more visible right now.

Name this layer "burning effect". On this layer, press Cmd/Ctrl+G to make group for it. Change the mode of this layer from Pass Through ( default mode for group) to Color Dodge 100%:

clip_image057

You can see a big change after this step:

clip_image058

Right click burning effect layer, choose Blending options:

clip_image059

And result:

clip_image060

Rename this group as "burning effect".


Step 13

Open man stock. Extract him with method you're familiar with, resize and place him into our main document:

clip_image061

To change color of the man I use a Hue/Saturation layer with Clipping Mask:

clip_image062

Step 14

To add glowing effect for the man, make a new layer on the top. On man layer, hold Cmd/Ctrl while clicking man thumbnail layer to load its selection:

clip_image063

Set feather for it as 1. Go to Edit-Stroke and use color #fceaa4:

clip_image065

Change the mode to Overlay 50%:

clip_image066

Name it as "glowing stroke 1".


Step 15

Create a new layer, and use brush with color #ef8d0e. Press F5 to make settings for this brush:

clip_image068

Paint carefully along the bottom of man's legs:

clip_image070
clip_image072

To make this effect more visible, right click this layer, choose Blending options:

clip_image073
clip_image075

Name it as "glowing stroke 2".


Step 16

Make a new layer and use soft brush with color #fbcb9c. Increase the size of brush to paint on model as the screenshot below shows:

clip_image077

Change the mode to Overlay 100%:

clip_image079

Call it "glowing light".


Step 17

Duplicate burning circle layer then delete its layer mask of under layer( right click layer mask, choose Delete Layer Mask). Move under one above the top. Name it "light 3"
