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:
image020
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”. Next, activate the Transform tool (Ctrl/Cmd + T) and resize the image as shown below:
image030
The result:
image031
Now, we would need to erase some parts of the hand to make it look like it really is on water. To start, activate the Eraser tool (E) and input the following:
  • Brush size: 90px
  • Hardness: 0%
  • Opacity: 100%
  • Flow: 100%
When you have those ready, erase the part shown on the image below:
image032
The result should be similar to this:
image033
Next, we will be fixing the light and darkness of the hand. To start, create a new layer (Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + N) and then name it “Darken hand”. Once created, right-click on this layer and then click on “Create Clipping Mask”. Now, let’s activate the Brush tool and input the following:
  • Brush size: 500px
  • Hardness: 0%
  • Opacity: 15%
  • Flow: 100%
  • #: 000000
Once you’ve set those, let us now paint:
image034
The result of that should be similar to this:
image035
Next, we will add a shadow under the hand to create the illusion that there is light above it. To start, create a new layer (Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + N) and name it: “Shadow”. Before you proceed, put this “Shadow” layer below the “Hand” layer because if it is above, it will be painting on the hand as well.

Activate the Brush tool (B) and then input the following:
  • Brush size: 200px
  • Hardness: 0%
  • Opacity: 15%
  • Flow: 100%
  • #: 00010a
When you’re done, let’s now paint:
image037
The result:
image038

Step 5: Create the Fish

In this step, we will be adding the fish which we will put inside the glass ball. To start, open the stock image: “Scary Fish” by xNickixstockx and activate the Move tool (V). Drag the whole stock image to our canvas and put it on top of all the layers. Once there, rename this layer to “Fish”.

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

  1. I'm not sure if you're still posting since this is kind of an old tutor, but you are an awesome artist! Great walkthrough
