Next, let’s create another layer (Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + N) and then name this new layer: “Darken 2”. Now, activate the Brush tool (B) once again and then input the following:
  • Brush size: 1800px
  • Hardness: 0%
  • Opacity: 15%
  • Flow: 100%
  • #: 000000
When you’re done, we can now start painting:
The result of that should be similar to this:

Step 3: Create the Water in the Room

In this step, we will be filling this room with water. To start, let’s open the “Stormy Sea” by darkrose42 stock. Once open, activate the Rectangular Marquee Tool (M) and select the sea from this image.
Now that you’ve created a selection area around the sea, activate the Move tool (V) and drag the sea to our canvas and position this layer above the “Darken 2” layer. Position it in the canvas as shown on the image:
Now rename this layer to “Water”. Activate the Transform Tool (Ctrl/Cmd + T) and resize the “Water” as shown on the image below:
The result:
Now that that’s done, we will now darken the water to make it blend with the light of the room. To start, create a new layer (Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + N) above the “Water” layer and name it “Darken Water”. Once you’ve done that, right-click on the layer and choose Create Clipping Mask so that the brush’s paint would only be within the “water” and not spread to the “Wall”.
Now that you’re done, activate the Brush tool (B) and input the following:
  • Brush size: 300px
  • Hardness: 0%
  • Opacity: 30%
  • Flow: 100%
  • #: 000000
Now, let’s paint:
The result of that should be similar to this:
When you’re done, select all the layers that you’ve created and then group them together to avoid confusion. To group layers, simply select all the layers that you wish (in this case, all the layers) and then press Ctrl/Cmd + G. After that, you’d notice that they are all on one folder.
Note: You may rename the group to “Background”

Step 4: Create the Hand

Now, we will be adding a giant hand within the room. To start, open the stock image “ball 3” by LuckyStock. Once it is open, activate the Magnetic Lasso Tool, as shown on the image below:
Now, create a selection area around the hand.
Once you’re done, activate the Move tool (V) and drag the hand to our canvas. Position the hand as shown below:
Rename the layer now to “Hand”.

      All the stock resource links seem to be working on my end. Where are you seeing the link for the water in the ball?
