How to Add Creepy Bugs to Your Photos

Step 13

Click on the created new layer. Select the Paint Bucket Tool (G) on the toolbar. Be sure to set the background color (the color that you will work) to black by pressing D on keyboard.

Step 14

Fill selection bugs. With this select not worry spoil the whole picture because the brush will work only in the selected area. To deselect, click Ctrl+ D. Place the shadow layer below the group of insects. Now using the Move Tool (V) lower, the shade down a bit just grabbed it anywhere.

Step 15

Select the Brush Tool (B) on the toolbar. Set it to the following settings: Size: 80px. Hardness: 0% Opacity: 40% flow: 100%. Be sure to set the background color (the color that you will work) to black by pressing D on keyboard.
Draw a shadow around the clock. We therefore emphasize the importance of the element picture.
Paint some shadows under mantis. Shadows will be more near the wings and little outside of the trunk and legs. Draw the shade and near a caterpillar. Just a little.

Step 16

Select the Ereser Tool (E) and remove part shade with dragonfly wings, as shown in Figure.

Step 17

Now blur the shadow so that it looked realistic. Go to Filter> Blur > Gaussian Blur… and set the settings: Radius: 6.0 px.

Step 18

That's it. Constructible with shadow, start working on insects, and more specifically to its appearance. First, add an adjustment layer to a group of insects and make them not so bright that they harmoniously. Go to Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Levels… or click on icon New Adjustment Layer and in list, select Levels…
We need to make light shades darker, so move the white marker to the left or set the output levels value to: left (dark): 0, right (white): 198.

Step 19

Here's how it happened. Note that the adjustment layer affects only the group “Bugs”. If you do not like the picture, then select the adjustment layer, hold Alt and click on group “Bugs”. On the adjustment layer should appear an arrow pointing down.

Step 20

Now we need to apply the right amount of light on insects. To do this, create a new layer by clicking Cmd/Ctrl+ Shift+ N and set the settings as show in Figure.
Note that this layer must be above all others.

Step 21

Now use Dodge Tool (O) for make light and Burn Tool (O) for shadow.
Set the following settings.
Draw, in accordance with natural light, light and are darkened space insects. Light goes from caterpillar. So all the insects on the left side more lighted, on the right is darker. Here's how I did this shadow.
Set the Opacity to this layer to 50%.

Step 22

That’s result after drawing of light and shadow.

Step 23

Now wanted to create the effect of mystery and curiosity. For this, I made ??the circuit of insects peeking out of the shadows. First, create a new layer, clicking on layer icon in Layer panel.
Select the Brush Tool (B) on the toolbar. Set it to the following settings: Size: 700px. Hardness: 0% Opacity: 100% flow: 100%. Use black color (D).
Draw the dark, as shown in the figure. Be sure to draw the edges of the image, but do not touch the top of the image.

Step 24

Now add a layer mask to this layer.
Set the following settings for the Brush Tool.
