Horror Movie Poster Remake

I am trying to copy this poster

enter image description here

strictly for learning. I do not plan to use it in any way whatsoever.

Te graveyard image used is this one here at:


My major problem is with how to obtain the misty, dark bluish sky in the background.
Any help in this regard will be highly appreciated.

My attempt:



  • Create a new layer over the graveyard
  • Fill it with #2d3e71.
  • Set style to “Multiply”.
  • It should look like this now: enter image description here

  • Get a random sky image from the internet, I used: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/16/Appearance_of_sky_for_weather_forecast,_Dhaka,_Bangladesh.JPG

  • Put it in a new layer on top of everything.
  • Resize it with Ctrl+T so that it just barely covers the work space.
  • Set style to “Multiply”.
  • Now you applied the blue color #2d3e71 and the sky pattern on the graveyard.
  • It was too dark for my taste, so I lightened it up a bit:
    • Select sky layer.
    • Ctrl+L and set middle arrow to 2.66.
  • Result:enter image description here

Basically you just play around with layers of the color and the pattern you want to mix with the original one. Try all settings and different opacities to learn how they work.
