Let’s take a look on them, before we start: the city, the flag, the texture 1, the texture 2, the texture 3, the grass texture, the can, the can 2, the  banana skin, the old newspaper , the grass, the  bushes, the  bushes 2, the  plants and the clouds. Also I’ve used one set of brushes, found on DeviantArt: Birds Brushes. Step1    Open the city image, which you intend to use, and save it under a different name. The firstthing to do in order to achieve the appearance of the deserted, empty city, is to remove allsigns of life, like people and lights. Use the Clone Stamp Tool and Brush Tool, which we’ll be useful for finishing the details. Both tools should be soft-edged and have a size of 5 to 10 pixels. Step2     Now, in order to create the appearance of destruction, several actions need to be taken.First, change the appearance of the dark, blue banner (center-left of the image). Use theBrush Tool to erase most of the gold letters, and use the Clone Stamp Tool to remove the  lower part of the banner. Step3    Open the flag image, and separate the flag from the background. Go to Select > Color Rangeto select all the blue pixels and press Delete. Use the parameters as in the image below.
