We need the following photos:
Model - download !!!
Background - download !!!
waterfall - download !!!
Wings - download !!!
Here we go...
Start off by making a new canvas, 2000x2000 pixels. Set the values as in the photo below.
At the beginning we are creating the background. Open the "Background.jpg" image and drag the stock background image to your canvas and make a new group for it Ctrl+G, rename this group to "background".
Now go to Edit> Free Transform. Fit image to your workspace.
If you want to add a blur, go to Filter> Blur> Gaussian Blur.
To brighten the background go to Image> Adjustments> Variations. If you want blur the background, go to: Filter>Blur>Gaussian Blur. You can see on illustration below...
Open up the Image menu Image>Adjustments>Shadow/Higlight... and apply follow settings:
While the blurred layer is still selected, go to Image>Adjustments>Brightness / Contrast and reduce contrast, as well as adding brightness:
Open the "model.jpg" image, drag to your canvas, make a new group for it Ctrl+G, name this group "model".
choose the Pen Tool (P ) and draw a path around the model's silhouette . in this way we'll extract the model from the background.
Click right on the path and choose Make Selection. Select Inverse Shift+Ctrl+I, and copy selected to new layer Ctrl+J, name this "Model".
Copy the model layer (select the current layer, use the keyboard shortcut ctrl+J) then rename it to Model2, as in the step previously, extract the model completely from the background (remove the bed- now we can work directly on the model's)
Take a hard brush, paint the black color the shadow under the model
Important thing! the layer of shadow must be between the "model2" layer and "model" layer, like this:
Go to Filter> Blur> Gaussian Blur, set the values as below:
change the Blending Mode to Multiply and fill at 73%
Next step is to add a layer mask to "model2" layer, set the white color, take a soft brush, set the black color and start hide unnecessary parts - (the edges of the beds), like this:
Now we can start painting hair. Use the following colors:
Grab Hard Brush (B), apply Shape Dynamics and Other Dynamics and use the following colors: #401d0e (shadow), #4e2a15 (midtones), #cf6227 (highlights).
Create new fill or adjustment layer and choose Levels
Make a Clipping Mask layer on top of this "model" layer.
to painting veil - we need the following colors:
Midtones: # 7d8083, Highlights: # b4bce0, Shadow: #686a6c
Now after painting veil on the model, I can start to add Gradient. Double click on the panel layer and choose Gradient, in this way i add some blue color in veil
Extract wings from the background (use the Magic Wand Tool(W), set the Tolerance at 24% - 32%), move to your canvas, reduce the opacity to 73%. go to Edit> Free Transform (Ctrl + T), Fit the wings to the model
Add blue color and shine on the wings
Take a Pen Tool, draw a shape similar as you can see on illustration below... Click right on the path and choose Make Selection. Select Inverse Shift+Ctrl+I, Press the keyboard shortcut (Shift+Ctrl+N) . in this way You create a new layer and go to: Edit>Stroke
using the Eraser tool, erasing the unnecessary parts
Click double on the layer panel and go to Bevel and Emboss, set the values as below:
then using the Dodge Tool (O) and Burn Tool (O), creating dark and light areas near the hand model (see the picture below)
I'll now begin to add small details, I adding stars. it gives a dreamy atmosphere. The artwork should looks like in the picture below:
we have already a model and background. Artwork should looks similar to image below (background was creating in step 1)
time for creating a waterfall
Open the "Waterfall" image and drag the stock image to your canvas and make a new group for it Ctrl+G, rename this group to "waterfall".
Important thing! "waterfall" group should be under the "model"group.
Then copy the current layer, rename it to "waterfall2" Now I have two layers with a waterfalls.
go to: Edit> Transform> Disort and fit the edge waterfall to the bed where there is a model
Select the "waterfall2" Layer and go to: Edit> Transform> Flip Horizontal
than Repeat step with the layer above(Edit> Transform> Disort)
Add a layer mask. remove unnecessary edges. Something like this:
Go to: Filter> Blur> Motion Blur
Grab a Soft Brush, using the white color start painting the light
Now take a Soft Brush, with white color and paint the silver dust
Now You can start to adjust the artwork. The best way to do is to go to New Layer adjustmen and choose Selective Color, Black & White, Photo Filter, Gradient Fill, Brightness/Contrast and Leveles to colour your artwork.
Your artwork should be similar like this:
