Today we’re going to use a bottle of cola and a simple egg to make Chuck Norris perfom a head-exploding atomic roundhouse of doom.
We start with the original, yet still quite righteous, kick to the face. Did you know that Chuck Norris once roundhouse kicked someone so hard that his foot broke the speed of light, went back in time, and killed Amelia Earhart while she was flying over the Pacific Ocean?
Trace and delete with some Lasso tools.
This is a some high-speed photography of an egg being shot by a bullet. This ends up serving well as brain matter and skull fragments.
What you do here is select the portion you want with the Poly Lasso Tool. Cut and Paste.
Ctrl+Shift+U to Desaturate. Ctrl+I to Invert.
Set this layer to Multiply on the blending modes on the layer panel. The default is usually set ay “Normal”. Ctrl+T to Transform/Rotate and then click and drag to position. With the Move Tool, of course.
Here is another high-speed photo but one of some cola frozen in time.
To turn the coke red, make a layer above it and fill it with color. Set it’s blend mode to Soft Light.
Layer>Flatten Image to keep this delicious red splatter and copy and paste it into the Chuck image. Set it to Multiply to get rid of the white.
I picked this symbol because it’s totally badass.
This is what the picture looks like with all the elements combined. Speaking of elements, Chuck Norris destroyed the periodic table once, because he only recognizes the element of surprise.
On the layer behind everything is just plain white. Now there is a radial gradient from white to gray.
You might have noticed a shadow underneath the figures. I simply traced the shapes on the original and filled with black.
Its Fill percentage is set around 15%.
Right-click and Duplicate this layer. Set the opacity to 70% and applay a Filter>Blur>Gaussian Blur.
I also Magic Wanded the area and painted a little more shadows under the feet and such.
Now we’re gonna use the popular “starburst effect” but put a spin on it.
Place it above the gradient layer and set its blending mode to Color Burn. it’s positioned here directly behind Chuck for dramatic effect.
Here is a nice grungy texture. It’s going to completely change the personality of the tired starburst. This texture is sitting on top of the entire piece and set to Overlay and 75% Fill.
Everytime Chuck Norris smiles, the life of a dying man is saved. Ironically, Chuck Norris smiles only after killing a man.
