Step 22: Create the Bench

In this step, we will be adding the bench in the middle of the room. To start, let’s open the stock image “Bench 1” by bean stock. Once open, we would need to cut the bench from its background and move it to our canvas and to do that we would need the Polygonal Lasso Tool (L).

Once that is done, let us now create the selection area around the bench.

Step 23

Activate the Move tool (V) and drag the image selected area (the bench) to our canvas. Put it above all the layers that we’ve created. Position it on the canvas as shown below:

Once you’ve removed the unwanted parts from the bench’s background, it should now look like this:

Once we’re done with that, we would need to adjust the lighting on the bench to make it look like it really is inside that room. To do that, first let’s create a new layer (Ctrl/Cmd + Shift +N) and then name it “Darken Bench”. Make sure that this new layer is above the Bench layer; next, right click on this newly created layer and then click on Create Clipping Mask.

Now, activate the Brush tool (B) and input the following:

  • Brush size: 600px
  • Hardness: 0%
  • Opacity: 15%
  • Flow: 100%
  • #: 000000

Let’s paint!

The result of that should be similar to this:

Step 24

Next, let’s create a shadow under the bench. To start, create a new layer (Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + T) and then name it “bench shadow”. Make sure to put this layer below the bench layer so the brush’s paint would only appear below the bench.

Now, let’s start painting! Activate the Brush tool (B) and then input the following:

  • Brush size: 60px
  • Hardness: 0%
  • Opacity: 15%
  • Flow: 100%
  • #: 000000

Let’s paint!

Step 25: Create the sitting Spoon

In this step, we will be adding the subject of our picture, the seemingly chatting spoon and fork. To start, let’s open “Cutlery” by teambo. Once open, activate the Polygonal Lasso Tool (L) and create a selection area around the spoon. Yes, let’s start with the spoon first.

Once you’ve made the selection area around the spoon, activate the Move tool (V) and then drag the spoon to our canvas. Make sure to put this layer above all the layers that we’ve made. Position the spoon on the canvas as shown below:

  1. Thanks for the tutorial. I followed your guidelines closely, and although I had to substitute images for the floor and cutlery (the original images were no longer available), I was able to replicate your original fairly well. I am using the completed image for an assignment in a college class. Thanks so much

  2. Awesome work and tutorial, Michael! Congrats!
    Let me add a correction: at step 36 the gradient map regulation level must be added with the LUMINOSTY blend mode...you must have forgotten to write it down :)

  3. Been looking at your tutorials and portfolio ... thanks a lot for sharing. Beautiful stuff. I really appreciate it.

  4. Great tutorial; thank you!
    FYI: The "Download the PSD" link points to the 'Big Fish' PSD rather than the file for this tutorial.
