The Dark Knight Rises Poster – Manipulation Tutorial

Today we are going to create a quick movie poster inspired by the new Batman movie.Using some nice stocks,brushes and changing some tones we can have a nice result.So, let’s start.

Final Result

 

 

Step 1

On this first step we’ll  blur a little the background to create the bokeh effect.First open the city background,crop it,then go to Image>Image Rotation>Flip Canvas Horizontal.After this let’s bring the blur Filter>Blur>Gausian Blur and set the Radius to 5%.

Step 2

Now let’s add the police car. After that play with the mist brushes around the car. Then use the debris brushes for the explosion effect.

 

Step 3

Let’s bring our main character in the picture.So here is our batman. The stock is .png so not to much work for cut.After,we create the rain effect with our brushes.

Step 4

It’s time to change some tones.I chose this blueish tone for this,using the setings from the image.Also you can use the broken glass brushes for the police car.

Step 5

In this step we’ll create a vignette effect using the Lens Correction filter.So here is the amount i used for this one.

 Step 6

Here we add the title of the poster and the logo of batman.The font i used was Franklin Gothic Medium.I added also a lens flare between the logo and the title.

Step 7

In this final step we use the burn&dodge techinique from the Manipulatin Secrets section and add some sharpness to our work.Have fun.

Final Result
