Start a new 450x150 transparent document.

Now that the artistic part is done, its all procedure.
First... Select a render you want to use. Then simply drag and drop to the grunge background you just made.
Make sure u get rid of any rendering color(the white around the character)

Now that the render is there press CTRL+SHIFT+U, to make it grey-scale (all grey).
Now for some color. Go to Layers>>>New Adjustment Layers>>>Color Balance.
Just mess with the bars until you get a color you like.
Now click on your render layer, then click add vector mask.

Now your pretty much done. Except, I always add a 3PX Border and some effects or other brushes over the background.
