Don't worry about the front sides as they will be covered later.

Step 17

Make a new layer, change the mode to Overlay 100% and fill with 50% gray:

Active the Dodge and Burn Tool (O) with Midtones Range, Exposure about 20-25% to refine the light and shade on the wall. You can see how I did it with Normal mode and the result with Overlay mode:

Step 18

Add the wall 2 image to our working document and remove the background using a layer mask.

Step 19

Use a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer to desaturate the wall:

Step 20

Use a Color Balance adjustment layer to change the wall color.

Step 21

Add a Curves adjustment layer to darken the wall sides. On this layer mask, use a soft black brush to erase the outer edges to keep the light there remained.

Step 22

Make another Curves adjustment layer to brighten the outer edges. On this layer mask, use a soft black brush to erase the inner edges to keep the shade there.

Step 23

Make a new layer with the same settings as in step 17. Use the Dodge Tool to make the light on the right edge stronger and more visible.

Step 24

Open the model image. Press Cmd/Ctrl+J to duplicate the background layer. Go to Filter > Liquify and active the Forward Warp Tool (W) with the settings below:

Use this tool to make the waist thinner, the hip narrower, the legs slimmer and longer. Don't overdo it as it would look unatural. Here is my result:

Step 25

Drag the model layer after liquifying into our main document and remove the background using a layer mask. Place her onto the wall 1.

Step 26

Make a new layer under the model one. Use a black brush with the hardness about 30-35%, the opacity about 30% to paint the shadow behind the model.

Step 27

Make a new layer (set as Clipping Mask) and use a soft brush with the color #a17572, the opacity and flow about 29% to soften the skin under the lips corner and on the forehead:

Step 28

To brighten some areas on her face, use another layer and a soft brush with the color #e3c7c3 with the same opacity and flow to paint under the chin, on the nose top and forehead.

Step 29

To refine the light and shade on the model, use a new layer with the same settings as step 23. Use the Dodge Tool to brighten the left side that is illuminated by the moonlight and the Burn Tool to darken some edges of the right side.

Step 30

Use a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer to reduce the saturation of the model skin and lips.

Step 31

Use a Curves adjustment layer to darken the right side of the model more. On this layer mask, use a soft black brush to erase the left and some details on the face and body to keep the lightness there.

Step 32

Make four new layers on the top. Change the brush kind to the bat ones and the foreground to #0b0d11. Paint some bats around the moon:

Apply a Gaussian Blur of 3 px to each of the bat layers:

Step 33

Make a group for the bat layers. To add more light to the bats, make a new layer and hold Cmd/Ctrl+Shift and click some of the bats thumbnail layers to load their selections:

Go to Edit > Stroke and pick the color #d5dae2.
