In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to recreate the Chaos Walking movie poster. Trying to recreate something like this is a great exercise because there are some pretty advanced (but easy to learn) techniques.

You’ll learn how to use overlays, which I’ve included in the download, to add drama, light, texture, and more to an image. I’ll show you how to organize your layers in Photoshop to get the perfect look. You’ll be able to use text in a more exciting way, how to color grade your whole composite so all the elements look good together as a cohesive image, and much, much more!
