If you would like to add some extra elements to a simple design, some lightings plus simple color adjustment can be used to beautify a simple image significantly.
Here’s a little Photoshop guide to mimic the 300 style. The effects could also be applied to video in After Effects with a similar setup. Obviously there was a lot more in the compositing of each scene in 300, but I think this presents the basic elements. You can see the layering in an actual 300 shot on this page of the VFX article in this tutorial.
In this tutorial, it will show you how to transform a fairly typical road-trip image with a big blue sky and wide-open spaces – into an apocalyptic battle scene, complete with tanks, guns, parachutists and a hail of incoming missiles. Finally, to make the scene more realistic, add a motion blur on the first tank.
Your image is easily transformed into whatever monster you like using photo manipulation. You just need to prepare some images with characteristics such as sharp teeth image for this zombie transformation. You can apply color adjustment and paint a little bit of blood, then the manipulation is done.
