Step 29

Now we will add some wet effect on the angel’s skin. Go select the angel folder to be active on it. Hit Ctrl+E to merge the folder into a single layer. Then, go to layer > smart object > convert to smart object. Give this smart layer a smart filter by going to filter > filter gallery. In the filter gallery, open artistic > plastic wrap.

Step 30

To give an impression of despair in the scene, we will add scattering feathers around.

step30a

Give the feathers some motion blur (filter > blur > motion blur).

step30b
step30c

Step 31

It is up to our preference that we can reduce the opacity of the color layer previously created in step 15 to 30%. To give the scene a bit shaper look, we can add an unsharp mask filter (filter > sharpen > unsharp mask). Prior to giving the scene the filter, we should merge all the visible layers. While we are active on the topmost layer, hit Shift+Ctrl+Alt+E to merge them into a single layer.

step31aa

This is the result will be because of the reduction.

step31b

Or this is the result without the reduction of the color.

step31b

It's done...

  1. This is great! And for you to have provided steps showing how it's done....perfect. I'll give this a try, and once I can perfect it, I'll make one for my niece with her image. She's all into angels.

  2. Wow, it amazes me that a person can see a final image and then create it basically from scratch on Photoshop. Nice work.

  3. What am I doing wrong on Step 6. I cannot for the life of me do that step. I create a new layer, use the pen tool to create the shape, shift f5 to fil. Does wonderful, looks nice, but when I do the step to cut out the robe. Nightmare city. I can't get it done. What am I doing wrong???
