Time Spent: 1 hour
Total amount of sprites/images used: 3
STEP 1: Place desired images on canvas.
STEP 2: Erase background of person w/ the Magic Wand Tool, Quick Selection Tool, and Eraser. Be sure to use Refine Edge if you desire a smoother edge. I would suggest using Eraser for small details and the Selection Tool for larger, mostly because details just require more precision.
STEP 3: Apply PSD colorings. I tried adding a lighting texture to this one, but it just didn't work.
STEP 4: Shrunk the person's render to make way for the text. Place text layers behind the person, and be sure to space it correctly so that the text is still readable.
STEP 5: Duplicate layers of the text and set them on Overlay blending mode, erase part of the text that's on Normal blending mode to give way to the Overlay. I went for a long diamond pattern. Also threw in the finishing touches, like stars on the person and my logo. This is the finished product.
