7.Step

Open Graphic vector in Adobe Illustrator, copy some of the swirl vectors into the photoshop composition (do this simply by selecting the vector and copying and pasting into photoshop). Place the vectors around the gun and the women. In this step you can use your creative freedom to arrange the swirls in whatever layout you think is best. Just don’t saturate the image with too much swirls.

8.Step

Merge all the swirls layer (Ctrl+e) and then create a Layer mask. In this step we will attempt to intertwine the vectors with the image. We are going to give the illusion that the swirls are coming in and out of the other images. To do this, make a selection of the main female by holding Ctrl and clicking on the layer. Mask the swirl in a way that it looks like it comes from behind her and extends to the front of her. Do the same for other images.

Open Moon image and place right above the background layer. Resize it and place it at the top left of the image.

Change the blending mode to Screen and change the opacity to 72%. Create a layer mask and with a brush with 0% hardness, mask away the hard edges of the moon.

sinful desires

15.Step

Create a new layer on the top of all the others. Apply the image to the new layer (Image>Apply Image) and copy the layer with the applied image. With the top applied image layer turned off, use a glowing edges filter (Filter>Stylize>Glowing Edges) with the following settings.

sinful desires

Change the blending mode of the layer to Screen and lower the opacity to 27%. Turn on the top layer and use a High Pass filter (Filter>Other>High Pass) with the following settings.

Change the blending mode to Hard Light and lower the opacity to 41%.This creates sharp dynamic lighting for the image.

16.Step

Create a two new layer, one on top of all the others and one on top the moon layer. Using a cloud brush add clouds to the background and foreground to add atmosphere to the image.

sinful desires

17.Step

Create a new layer. With the Polygonal lasso tool, create a selection similar to the one in the picture below, making sure to have a long straight edge on one side.

sinful desires

Using a large brush with a white color and 0% hardness, brush along the edges of the straight line. Deselect the selection (Ctrl+d). Erase the edges to create a nice sleek light streak.

sinful desires

Copy the image and displace it at an angle of your choosing. Use your creative vision to come up with a layout you like making sure to put streaks in both the background and foreground.

18.Step

Create a new layer and using the same technique in 13.step , make a circle. Create a new layer on top of that and apply the image (as in 15.step).

sinful desires

Right click on the layer and select ‘Create clipping mask’. Using the Transform tool, offset the image by moving it in any direction. This gives you a sharp dimensional effect. You can try this technique using different shapes. Copy the two layers as many times as you like and place them around the image in different sizes.

sinful desires

19.Step

Import Dynamic lights image into the composition and resize it as shown. Change the blending mode to Screen. Change the hue (Image>Adjustment>Hue/Saturation) until the lights are as purple as in the streaks in the tutorial image.

sinful desires

Create a new layer mask and mask out the edges and portions of the streaks.

sinful desires

20.Step

Create a gradient map Adjustment layer (Layer>New Adjustment Layer>Gradient Map). The colors should be the default black and a mid purple color. Change the blending mode to Overlay and lower the opacity to 42%, if the colors give a hard mix then reverse the gradient.
