Source is duplicated, then flipped and overlapped to form completed shape.
step 3 of 11
Background has all been removed using eraser tools.
step 4 of 11
Sky background is now moved into layer behind our space ship.
step 5 of 11
Cutout areas of 'ship' are being filled in with paint pot and brush tools. Motion blur is then added.
step 6 of 11
The chopped source is used again with filter/distort/polar coordinate to create shape for center of the 'ship'.
step 7 of 11
Half of the new shape created with polar coordinate is cropped, then will be duplicated, flipped and merged.
step 8 of 11
Module just created for center of 'ship' has bubble pattern layer over it which has been reduced in opacity to just barely show. Rays of light are added with airbrush tool. This module has been sized to fit center of ship using scale and distort tools.
step 9 of 11
This is the bubble pattern layer used on center module.
step 10 of 11
Module with pattern layer is merged, color changes are made to entire ship using hue/saturation and color/balance tools.
step 11 of 11
Duplicates of our ship are sized to 2 smaller sizes then reduced in brightness and contrast to set further away in space.
