Unfortunately Something went wrong with Photoshop and lost all saves leading to the final comp however the run down for the entry was as follows:-
Step 1: Using the Pen tool I extracted the Figure, clone stamped out the remaining chain and made a general clean-up with the Spot Healing Brush.
Step 2: Duplicated and Enlarged the Head, added neck shadow with a Soft Brush
Step 3: Used a Curves adjustment layer to boost the colour in the Guitar - and give contrast to the Hair - inside mouth - Trousers and Shoes (for the trousers and shoes I lowered the opacity of the brush when painting on the mask)
Step 4: Made a 'lightbulb' using layer styles and using an appropriate font, duplicated and traced around each letter... when I finished I grouped the name, duplicated once again flipped for the reflection - using a layer mask to mask out the bit I didn't want
Step 5: Created the spotlight with the elipse tool, added the shadow and transformed it to the way you see (warp tool mainly)
Step 6: Looked a little flat so added some splashed of colour using the brush tool, gaussian blur, the rendered some Clouds, using a high feather with the lasso tool I picked a selection of the cloud, and enlarge it so it covered the 'ground' - using blend if to knock out the blacks and set to screen - there's actually two layers set to different opacities.
Step7: Only external source used was the Microphone from cgtextures.com
Step8: Set a layer to overlay and painting black and white used it do dodge and burn some details in the face and hair
Step 9: Sharpening of Elvis - highpass set on vivid light.
Step 10: using stock brush... added the sparkles in the lights. (5 years and 737 days ago)
