Add the waterfall to the main scene. Scale its size and place it between the right and left rock. Flip it horizontally and alter the perspective to have the one like this:
Here is what we should have so far….
We need to hide some unneeded parts of the waterfall layer. I think we know what to do to execute this purpose, don’t we? Yes…..! We use layer mask…! Give this waterfall layer a layer mask and mask parts unneeded as highlighted in red to hide them. Use a very soft round brush to mask them.
Here is the result I created after being masked.
Next, duplicate the waterfall layer and move the duplicate to the right a bit to have the result like the one below. Don’t be panic if you do not get the exact result like the one I created, you can compose your own waterfall composition as you prefer. It’s not a big deal, is it? So can we go on now?
Ok, let’s go to the next process. Select the right rock layer again to be active on it. Give this layer a layer mask. Mask some areas where needed as highlighted in red. The main purpose of this masking is to blend the layer to the rock behind it. Use a very soft brush to do this. To alter the shape of the rock edges we can mask them as well, we should use chalk brush taken in the brush preset to this purpose.
Proceed to add another object in the scene. Place the castle image in the main document. Scale its size and position it behind the rock folder created in previous step 3.
Hide the background of this image by masking it.
We need the other stock image to be added to the scene. We use this image for this purpose. Cut out some part of the rock in the image.
Add the cut out in the document. Scale its size and place it in front of the right rock layer. Rotate its position to have the one as I did:
Mask parts unneeded.
Now add the bridge to the scene. Scale its size to the one we need. Position this layer in front of the waterfall between the right and left rock.
In this step, we will add tunnels or caves ( I am not sure myself what they are….LOL)in the scene. We use this image to fulfill this purpose. Cut out the part needed.
Add the cut out to the scene. To blend it to the rock behind, mask the edge of the cutout. I named this cut out left cave.
Duplicate the cave layer. Flip the duplicate horizontally, scale the size, and place it in front of the rock on the right. Mask areas where needed.
Finally, we will add cloud and moon as the background for the scene. Place the cloud image in the scene. Make sure to position this layer behind all the other layers. The moon will give dramatic nuance to the scene, so it will something fantastic if we position the moon right behind the castle. Don’t you agree? So be it…..!
We need to fill the blank part of the background. We do this just simply by duplicate the cloud layer. Scale the size of the duplicate to the one needed and move it to the left to cover the blank. Where is the moon? The moon is now covered by the cloud.
