How to Create a Space Woman Portrait with Adobe Photoshop

Step 14

Drag the image 2 to add to the area around the neck and make it larger than the first one. Add a mask to this layer to erase the part covering the neck.

Step 15

Create a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer to turn the color of the light circle to purple.
Make a Curves adjustment layer to change the color and contrast of the circle a bit. On this layer mask, paint on some parts of the circle so they won't be affected by this adjustment layer.

Step 16

Drag the light sphere in our main canvas and change the mode to Screen 100%. Flip it horizontally (Edit > Transform > Flip Horizontal) and resize it to be much smaller and place it in the lower of the neck. Use Ctrl+T to rotate it a bit.

Step 17

Duplicate this layer  and enlarge its size and move it to the light circle on the forehead. Use Ctrl+T with the Warp mode to bend it to make it look like a half of a circle. Use a layer mask to erase the outer part of the top and the inner part of the bottom to make them fade into the black background. 
Duplicate this layer and flip it horizontally and move it to another side of the circle. Use its layer mask to erase the bottom of this circle half 

Step 18

Open the planet texture and hit Ctrl+Shift+N to make a new layer. Press S to select the Clone Tool and use this tool to remove two meridians on the texture.

Step 19

Hit Ctrl+Shift+Alt+E to merge the planet layer and the cloning one. Use the Elliptical Marquee Tool (M) to draw a circle, remembering to  hold the Shift key white drawing.
Go to Filter > Distort > Spherize and you should have a similar result like below:
Press Ctrl+J to copy this sphere into a new layer.

Step 20

Move the planet into our main document and place it on the right side. Duplicate it three times and arrange them along the light circles on the neck area. Use Ctrl+T to vary their size and direction.

Step 21

Select the planet layers and hit Ctrl+G to make a group for them. Change the group's mode to Normal 100% and add a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer to change the color of the planets.

Step 22

Create a Curves adjustment layer to make shadow for the planets. On this layer mask, paint on the right of the bigger planets and the lower of the smallest one to reveal the lightness there.
Make another Curves adjustment layer to bring more light to the right of the planets except the smallest one. Use the layer mask to reduce the light to keep the shadow and contrast of the planets.
Add another Curves adjustment layer to decrease the shadow of the planets. The selected areas show where to paint on the layer mask.

Step 23

Create a new layer and use a soft brush with the color #7e63a2 to paint on the planets around the light circles to make a glow for them. Change this layer mode to Hard Light 100%.

Step 24

Place the space background into our canvas and change this layer mode to Screen 100%. Add a mask to this layer to erase the part covering the model's face.

Duplicate this layer and move it to the lower right of the canvas. Use its layer mask to remove the effect on the model's face and the right side, leaving it visible around the neck and head.
