Step 1: Create a New Image File

We will start by creating a new image file, go to the Menu bar and click File > New, and then input the following values on their respective fields:
  • Width: 3000 pixels
  • Height: 3000 pixels
  • Resolution: 300 pixels/inch
  • Color Mode: RGB Color; 8 bit
  • Background Contents: Transparent

Step 2: Create the Wall

In this step, we will be creating the walls within this dark tunnel. To start, let’s open “Wall Texture” by shadowh3. Once open, activate the Move tool (press V on your keyboard) and then drag it to our canvas by left-clicking and moving it to our canvas. Once on the canvas, it should appear like this:

Now, we will have to rename this layer to avoid confusion in later steps. To rename a layer, simply double-click on the words: “layer 1” (which is our layer – “Wall Texture”) to prompt a text box to appear. Once that appears, you may now rename the layer to “wall”. See sample below:

image007

Next, we will have to transform this “wall” to make it look like a wall; to do that, activate the Transform tool (Ctrl/Cmd + T) while the “wall” layer is selected and then resize it as shown below:

image008

The result should be similar to this:

image009

Next, we will fix the light of the walls and to do that we would need to paint on it. To start, click on the Layer window and then create a new layer (Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + N) and then name this layer to “Darken Wall”. Now, activate the Brush tool (B) and then input the following:
  • Brush size: 1200px
  • Hardness: 0%
  • Opacity: 25%
  • Flow: 100%
  • #: 000000

Note: The “#” means the color of the brush is black, but to make sure that you will be using that brush color follow the steps below:

image011

After clicking the Foreground tool, the Color Picker box would open. Once open, input the following on the # space:
  • #: 000000

image012

Now, let’s paint!

The result of that should be similar to this:

image014

Next, let’s create another layer (Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + N) and then name this new layer: “Darken 2”. Now, activate the Brush tool (B) once again and then input the following:
  • Brush size: 1800px
  • Hardness: 0%
  • Opacity: 15%
  • Flow: 100%
  • #: 000000
When you’re done, we can now start painting:

The result of that should be similar to this:

Step 3: Create the Water in the Room

In this step, we will be filling this room with water. To start, let’s open “Stormy Sea” by darkrose42 stock. Once open, activate the Rectangular Marquee Tool (M) and select the sea from this image.

image018

Now that you’ve created a selection area around the sea, activate the Move tool (V) and drag the sea to our canvas and position this layer above the “Darken 2” layer. Position it in the canvas as shown on the image:

image019

Now rename this layer to “Water”. Activate the Transform Tool (Ctrl/Cmd + T) and resize the “Water” as shown on the image below:

image020

The result:

image021

Now that that’s done, we will now darken the water to make it blend with the light of the room. To start, create a new layer (Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + N) above the “Water” layer and name it “Darken Water”. Once you’ve done that, right click on the layer and choose Create Clipping Mask so that the brush’s paint would only be within the “water” and not spread to the “Wall”.

image022

Now that you’re done, activate the Brush tool (B) and input the following:
  • Brush size: 300px
  • Hardness: 0%
  • Opacity: 30%
  • Flow: 100%
  • #: 000000
Now, let’s paint:

image023

The result of that should be similar to this:

image024

When you’re done, select all the layers that you’ve created and then group them together to avoid confusion. To group layers, simply select all the layers that you wish (in this case, all te layers) and then press Ctrl/Cmd + G. After that, you’d notice that they are all on one folder.

Note: You may rename the group to “Background”
