Tutorials Photo Manipulation 19738 Views March 24th, 2016

Childhood's End is a 1953 science fiction novel by the British author Arthur C. Clarke. The story follows the peaceful alien invasion of Earth by the mysterious Overlords.

This sci fi photo manipulation is inspired by the apocalyptic moment when life as we know it will come to an end, followed by the disintegration of planet Earth.


Create an Apocaliptic Photo Manipulation in Photoshop

Open room image and use the Brush Tool or Pen Tool to select the window area and cut. If you use the Brush tool, create a layer mask and use foreground color black.

Add Galaxy Cosmos Stock Image

Now open the Cosmos 8 stock image and put the planet image below the Room Background Layer.

Open space hole stock image and place it on the planet with blend mode Screen. Create a layer mask and delete unnecessary parts using the brush tool (foreground black) as shown in the picture below.

Also open the wormhole stock image and put in the left corner of the window. Blend mode also set to Screen with opacity 100%. Create layer mask and use brush tool to delete unnecessary area.

Place the Cosmos 1 stock image and set the Blend mode to Luminosity as shown in the picture below.

As an alternative you can use this Galaxy Premade Background for this photo manipulation of for other projects.
