How to Create a Disturbing Scene of a Flooded Room with a Giant Hand Carrying a Fish

How to Create a Disturbing Scene of a Flooded Room with a Giant Hand Carrying a Fish
Notice that this is a huge image so we would need the Transform tool (Ctrl/Cmd + T) to scale it to a smaller size. Transform the fish to this size:

Now, we only need the fish and not its background and to delete this simple background we would need a simple technique as well and that is through the use of the Magic Wand tool (W). See image below:
image040
Using this Magic Wand tool (W), left-click on the background of the “Fish” layer.

Now that you’ve selected it using this tool, hit Delete on your keyboard and watch the background disappear. The result:

Now that you’re done, select all the layers that you’ve created in this step and then group them (Ctrl/Cmd + G) and name the group to “Fish”.

Step 6: Create the Water in the Glass

Now we will be adding water in the glass; to do that, open the stock image: “Water on glass I” by deadenddoll stock. Once open, activate the Move tool (V) and drag the whole image to our canvas. Put it on top of the “Fish” group and then rename this layer now to: “Water in Glass” Position this layer as shown below:
image043
Next, activate the Transform tool (Ctrl/Cmd + T) and then resize the “Water in Glass” as shown below:
image044
The result:
image045
Next, we will cut this square stock image and turn it into a circle, to do that - activate the Polygonal Lasso tool and follow the instructions as shown below:

Once you’ve reduced its opacity you can now use the Polygonal Lasso Tool with ease.

Now, that a selection area is created, press Ctrl/Cmd + J to duplicate that selection and then delete the original layer. The result will be like this:
image049
Now, we will change its Blending mode to Overlay to make it look like it is inside the glass ball. To do that, follow the instructions as shown below:
image050
The result of that should be like this:
image051
Now duplicate this layer (Ctrl/Cmd + J) and on this duplicated layer, use the following Blending mode and Layer Opacity:
  • Blending mode: Hard Light
  • Opacity: 100%
The result of that should be similar to this:
image052
Now group these layers (Ctrl/Cmd + G) and name the group to “Water in Glass”.

Step 7: Add the Textures

Now, let’s give the image a grungy and dark feel by adding textures. To start, let’s open “grunge” by e dina. Once open, activate the Move tool (V) and drag it to our canvas. Put it on top of all the layers. Position it as shown below:
image053
Once there, change the Blending mode and Opacity to the following:
  • Soft Light
  • 40%
The result:
image054
Next, open the texture: “Paper Texture 1” by wojtar stock. Activate the Move tool (V) and drag this image to our canvas. Position it as shown below:
image055
Activate the Transform tool (Ctrl/Cmd + T) and then resize it as shown below:
image056
Now, set the following:
  • Blending mode: Soft Light
  • Opacity: 40%
The result:
image057
Next, open the texture: “Metal Texture 15” by wojtar stock. Once open, drag it to our canvas using the Move tool (V) and then position it as shown below:
image058
Now, transform (Ctrl/Cmd + T) it as shown below:
image059
Set the following for this texture:
  • Blending mode: Multiply
  • Opacity: 40%
  • Fill: 60%
The result:
image060
Click on the “Metal texture 15” layer and duplicate it (Ctrl/Cmd + J). Once duplicated, change the Blending mode and Opacity to the following:

    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
