When you are done, bring the Embryo selection to the Futuristic Girl working space.
Now, hide the Embryo layer and duplicate the Futuristic Girl layer again.
Bring the Embryo layer under the two Futuristic Girl layers.
Duplicate the Effects layer, then go to Filter > Liquify. Go to Twirl Clockwise tool and enter the settings as shown in the diagram below. Create a twirl on the duplicated flare.
Create another new blank layer and name it Ray. Draw lines (color to your preference) over the layer using Brush Tool.
Part 3 – Step 15
Double click or right click the Brush Layer to enter Blending Options. Adjust the Outer Glow and settings as shown in the diagram below. When all is done, create a group folder and put all these layers into it before bringing it to the Futuristic Girl working space.
Now for the Glowing ball, set Group 1 Layer’s blend mode to Screen. Add a vector mask to Group 1 layer and slowly mask out the fire, bursts and rays of the Glowing ball that we have just created.
Part 4 – Step 18
Open the last image, an Abstract background and bring it into the Futuristic Girl working space. Set the Blend Mode to Screen and erase the edges to blend it into the image.
