Create an Awesome Underwater Scene Depicting a Dragon and a Treasure Hunter

In this tutorial, we will create an awesome underwater photo manipulation. I’ll explain some of the more complex techniques I use in the first steps to make it easy for beginners but intermediate and advanced users can also learn a thing or two. I like doing underwater scenes because there is something mysterious about the depths of the oceans where all kinds of strange creatures live but also because I like putting menacing creatures and curious humans together in a scene.

Step 1

Open the file “Underwater”. This will be the base of our scene.

Step 2

Open the file “Cathedral”. Copy all by pressing Ctrl + A and Ctrl + C. Go back to our scene and paste with Ctrl + V. Transform this layer into a Smart Object by right-clicking on it in the Layer Palette and choosing Convert To Smart Object from the drop-down menu. Press Ctrl+T to enter Free Transform and position the cathedral as shown below. Hold the Shift key while dragging the corners when in Free Transform to resize proportionally.

  1. I love that end results. I am going to check those links now since some are saying they do not work.

  2. Сегодня взялся за урок и дошёл до 15 шага. Спасибо большое:) Я человек простой из бедной семьи и потому скажу просто. Я балдею от урока!:)) Оставлю два варианта синий и зелёный, оба нравятся:)

  3. That was awesome...I thought I knew most but I still picked up on a few things!
    Simple things like Adding colour balance etc via the layers panel.
    Thanks heaps!
    Where can I post my version? Is it ok to put up on facebook?

  4. Интересно было бы поработать с этим уроком, результат красивый но исходники не работают.
