Inglourious Basterds Movie Poster Effect Tutorial

I'm an avid fan of Quentin Tarantino films, and i wouldn't wanna miss Inglorious Basterds once it hits the cinemas here in PH, it's topbilled by Brad Pitt & Diane Kruger. For more info on the movie, click here. Anyway, let's go on with the tutorial..

I really like the grungy look on these promotional teaser-posters and it's not that hard to achieve this effect.

The above images are a copyright the Weinstein Company

Let's start off with the raw materials, i got these images from stock.xchng which offers free stock images.

Concrete background:

Splatter effect:
1. Create a New File, with the Concrete image as your background and the Splatter effect on top of it. Change the blending mode of the Splatter layer to Darken (highlighted below) and change the Hue/Saturation (Ctrl+U), see settings below.
2. Go to Layer>New Adjustment Layer>Gradient Map, click OK (Step 1 on the image below) and Select the Black,White gradient (Step 2), click OK then make sure the Blending Mode is set to Multiply. (This layer should be on top of the Splatter Layer).
3. Create a new Layer(Ctrl+Shft+N), select the Gradient Tool (G) and following the settings highlighted below. Click on the center then drag the pointer to get the effect below. Set the Blending option of this Layer to Overlay.
4. Create another Layer, and Select the Brush tool and choose the Rough Round Brush Tool, lower the opacity, you may follow the settings below. Paint on the Layer randomly, particularly on the sides.

5. Go to Filter>Blur>Motion Blur, set the angle to 90 & distance to 500+.
6. Go to Filter>Noise>Add Noise>Set the Amount to 60%+, make sure Monochromatic is checked.
7. And We're Finished! You just need to add your cropped pic above the 1st gradient Layer.


And that's the end of this tutorial! Hope you liked it :)
