Background Skins: How's My Artist Doing This?
Greetings! This forum indicated that noobs were welcomed--and here I am. Smile

I run a network of portals that support various games. Each portal has its own background skin. Because I was not gifted with artistic inclinations, I have been hiring an artist to make these background skins. My hope is that I can learn to do the same thing that he does, but I'm really not sure where to start.

Below are a couple examples of his work. I don't need a full tutorial here: if anyone knows what tools he is likely using, I can Google for tutorials on how to use them. I can set the canvas size, fill it with black, and add/resize/manipulate the images; I can use the paintbrush with lowered opacity to blend the bottom images to black. How is he blending the images together?
