Fun Comic-Like Picture

In this tutorial you will learn how to turn a background into a dreamy stargazed filled photo.

Original image:

Open your image. Duplicate the layer and change the mode of the duplicate layer to Color Dodge.

Press Ctrl + I to invert the duplicate image. You will see a mainly white image now.

Go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur. Now you will start to see come color come back. Although the image isnt complete, I think just this step makes the picture look pretty cool.

Now you want to remove the colors. To do this, go to Image > Adjustments > Threshold. Adjust the image until you see the parts of the image that you want showing.

Create a new layer and change the blending mode to multiply. Start painting your image. Of course, you can use whatever colors you wish. Again, this could be your complete image, but we aren’t done yet!

To make a layer into the halftone comic book looking pattern, choose Image > Adjustments > Threshold and drag the slider to the left until the color disappears.

Select Filter > Sketch > Halftone Pattern and move the contrast slider to the right and adjust the size of the checks and click Ok.

I added a bright yellow background to mine, just to make sure the main image stands out more.

All of them put together:
