Step 26

Next, let’s make the spoon sit down. To do that, we will need to activate the Liquify tool. The Liquify tool can be found by clicking on Filter > Liquify. Once the Liquify tab has been opened input the following settings:

Tool Options

  • Brush size: 259px
  • Brush density: 50
  • Brush Pressure: 100
  • Brush Rate: 80
  • Turbulent Jitter: 50
  • Reconstruct Mode: Revert
  • Stylus Pressure: Uncheck
  • The rest - default

Step 27

Next, let’s create a new layer (Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + N) above the spoon layer and then create a clipping mask above him. Name this new layer as “Darken spoon”. Once done, activate the Brush tool (B) and input the following:

  • Brush size: 400px
  • Hardness: 0%
  • Opacity: 15%
  • Flow: 100%
  • #: 000000

Step 28

Next, let’s create the shadow of the spoon. Create a new layer (Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + N) and then put it below the spoon layer. Name this layer as “spoon shadow”. Activate the Brush tool (B) and input the following:

  • Brush size: 45px
  • Hardness: 0%
  • Opacity: 15%
  • Flow: 100%
  • #: 000000

Now, let’s paint!

Step 29: Create the sitting Fork

Like what we did in Step 6 for the spoon - activate the Polygonal Lasso Tool (L) and then create a selection area around the fork.

Step 30

Once done, activate the Move tool (V) and drag the fork to our canvas. Once on the canvas, make sure to put it above all the other layers. Position it as shown below:

Step 31

Next, activate the Transform tool (Ctrl/Cmd + T) and then resize the fork as shown below:

Step 32

Now, let’s activate the Liquify tool (Filter > Liquify) and then input the same settings as from the spoon.

Tool Options

  • Brush size: 259px
  • Brush density: 50
  • Brush Pressure: 100
  • Brush Rate: 80
  • Turbulent Jitter: 50
  • Reconstruct Mode: Revert

Step 33

Now, let’s create a new layer (Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + N) above the fork layer. Create a clipping mask for this layer and then name it “Darken fork”. Activate the Brush tool (B) and input the following:

  • Brush size: 300px
  • Hardness: 0%
  • Opacity: 15%
  • Flow: 100%
  • #: 000000

Step 34

Next, let’s create the fork’s shadow. First, let’s create a new layer (Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + N) and put this new layer below the fork layer; name it as “fork’s shadow”.

Activate the Brush tool (B) and input the following:

  • Brush size: 45px
  • Hardness: 0%
  • Opacity: 15%
  • Flow: 100%
  • #: 000000

The result of that should be similar to this:

  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.
