step6c

Here is the result.

step6d

To define more contrast and brightness of the blending, we can duplicate this layer and set its blending to soft light and give it burn or dodge on some parts.

step6e

Step 7 (smudge on cloth on main body)

Create another new layer and give some smudge on the main body. Do similar way as in previous step 6 to do this. Here is the result so far….

step7a

Step 8 (Adding hood)

Now we will add hood for the figure. Open the stock image and cut out the part needed.

step8a
step8b

Place the cut out above the smudge layers in the main document. Scale its size and warp to alter its shape.

step8c

Go to layer > new adjustment layers > hue/saturation. Make sure to give this adjustment layer a clipping mask by checking use previous layer to create clipping mask.

step8d
step8e

To blend the hood with the rest part of the image, we do this by applying similar ways like the ones in previous step 6 and 7. I did this on a new layer.

step8f

Step 9 (fixing the fingers)

Next, we will replace the fingers of the figure. We will give it skeletal fingers. Open the stock image. Cut out one of the skeletal arms.

step9a

Place the cut out on the main document. Scale and arrange its position in such way that it is fit the original fingers.

step9b

Mask unneeded part..

step9c

Cut out one of the fingers and place the cut out right on the thumb finger of the figure. Select all the finger layer and hit Ctrl+E to merge them.

step9d

Adjust the color of the merged finger layer to match the rest of the image. We just simply give it two adjustment layers with clipping masks : Hue/saturation and level.

step9e

Do similar way to add skeletal fingers to the other ones.

step9f

Step 10 (Adding lower cloth)

Let’s complete the figure by adding lower cloth for the figure. Create a new layer below all the other layers. On this layer, create a shape for the cloth like the one shown in the screenshot.

step10a

Giving the cloth some details by adding some worn and crumpled parts where needed. Remember previous steps to do this because these are just repeating steps. Here is the former shape I created, however………

step10b

I don’t think all of you will find a good result ;-) so just skip this step and find the other simple way to add some lower cloth. To do this we will add the lower cloth by cutting out part of the cloth from the stock image below and use it as the texture for the cloth.
