What is it about the end of everything? Create a movie about Utopia and I bet it would tank at the box office. Create a movie about the end of world… be it from a meteor, climate change, nuclear war, zombies or alien attack and bingo… box office gold!
On the design end of things this image is quite interesting. What the final image is made up of three images: an image of the sky (for the background), an image of a half destroyed apartment building and an image of a office tower in 100% perfect shape. With the use of of layer masks each image is shown to create the destroyed building. Add a Hue/Saturation Adjustment layer to turn the image a cold twilight blue and the image is 90% done.
The original tutorial had the image with a tan/brown image, which I did create, but I like the blue better.
