In this tutorial I will be teaching you how to add a grunge scene style to your photos. 

Create a new file (File>New) with 1024×768 px and 100 dpi. Select on this layer the Paint Bucket Tool (G) to give it the color #F3DAA2

Find in Internet a photo of a megapolis. Cut out the unnecessary elements of it and insert the main element in the middle of the picture.

Download out of Internet a set of ready to apply brushes for Adobe Photoshop: BloodPack1__invaynestock, bloodbrushes2_invaynestock, Bush Pack v1
Create a new layer after that and select the Brush Tool (B) out of the set BloodPack1__invaynestock. The selected brushes’ color should be #C42622. Place the layer containing the brushes lower than the layer with the photo of the megapolis (on the layers’ panel).

    come on, it’s not a bad concept, this randomly pasted cityscape is something what’s ruining it, just do something about your town layer mate, less saturation, smooth edges, a bit more texture…

    lol what’s up with all the hating?? I personally think it’s quite cool and really simple. It is beyond me how Panda and Balh can’t do it.. i did this buy only glancing at the pictures and with a completely different program. Some people are retarded. Thank you for the tutorial :)
