Step 30

Now we just need to make one more ivy set at the right, duplicate the Ivy group we just created and place them to the right. Ctrl + T to open Transform Tool and choose Flip Horizontal so the ivies doesn't look similar to the left one.

Step 35

One last touch! A great way to bring up our main character is to make the background less attractive. Add this 1.2px Gaussian Blur to our Forest layer (remember to turn it to Smart Object!)
