Creating a freedom concept break dancer photo manipulation is something that almost all Photoshoppers want to do. When I started in Photoshop, I was no different so that’s why Designzzz is publishing this simple and cool photo manipulation.
Creating this kind of manipulation is not that hard and you can do it easily on your own photo, and you should try it. This kind of photo effect not just looks cool but they are very much commercial as well. Poster designs for DJs, Discos, Bands, Albums etc. love these kinds of designs.
Resources We Used
Let’s start by placing this background on solid black color with the opacity of 12.
Then I selected the Brush tool for making the Glow behind the dancer. Single clicks of Soft Brush of Multiple colors work like a charm. There are many more sophisticated methods for creating this effect, but this will do for now. The important thing is it works and it is the quickest way.
Now we place our hero on the background we made for him.
I Copied Dancer image two times and moved the 1st to 20 pixel to the right and moved the 2nd one to 20 pixels to the left. I set the Opacity to 20 afterward.
I added some amazing brush strokes.
Here is another brush stroke, I utilized some brush stroke Tips By Striking F5. Here I applied a single stroke and copied>pasted it, transformed and then erased the excessive parts.
Another Brush stroke and now we are almost done.
I placed the image in front of all the strokes. It’s looking good, Mr. Dancer!
I selected the Pen Tool for making the additional curve for more details.
I went to the Paths Panel > right clicked on the Path layer > Stroke Path and then selecedt Brush & clicked on OK.
We got a nice curve and we gave it a groovy green color.
I selected Brush tool and made a stroke of glowing Brush with the following color and values.
I applied the brush stroke with the following color around the hand.
I grabbed an image, cropped it and applied a little Motion Blur with the following values for making the effect. This image will pass through the body of the dancer.
I put the image around the dancer and transformed it.
Copy the same image on the other side without applying the motion blur.
Add the shadow with the help of Brush Tool. After that apply the Guassian Blur, Filter>Blur>Guassian Blur under the jacket of the dancer for making it more realistic.
Now comes the other image.
You can see how I transformed it.
I selected another image but I don’t need the whole image. I selected only the interesting part of the image for making the scene more… cool.
I passed that part of image which I copied from the previous step.
I made several copies of the of the cut-piece of the blue image, but changed the color of the several copies by applying Color Overlay.
