Step 31

Now create a promontory on which model will post later. In this part of the work will have a little tinker with layer masks and transformation pieces hill. I liked the texture of this hill, so I did not add any other, and has done everything from a single photo. Now let's start creating our promontory. Create a new group or clicking the icon of the group in the Layers palette and name it "promontory".

Position the image as shown in the figure. Always make sure to smooth edge of the image does not appear in the work, and leave a little of the landscape at the bottom of the slope

Step 36

Add a layer mask to the layer with slope. Select the Brush Tool (B) on the toolbar. Set it to the following settings: Size: 100px. Hardness: 0% Opacity: 100% flow: 100%. Be sure to set the background color (the color that you will work) to black by pressing D on keyboard. Remove the extra parts of the image as shown in Figure.

Now duplicate this layer (the short key Cmd/Ctrl+ J).

Step 38

Flip Horizontal this fragment. Go to Edit > Transform > Flip Horizontal. Now dip the image with break as shown in the figure. Need to part with the relief was a continuation of the first fragment.

Step 39

Highlight the layer mask. Select the Brush Tool (B) on the toolbar. Set it to the following settings: Size: 80px. Hardness: 0% Opacity: 60% flow: 100%.

Remove the extra part. Then set the brush hardness by 70% and make the edge of the cliff clearer, removing unnecessary.

Step 40

Duplicate the first layer (the short key Cmd/Ctrl+ J) of a cliff and move it above all others in this group. Place it so that it became a continuation of the rock
image46

Step 41

I also added a layer mask to it and removed several pieces that did not seem the same type of relief. Layer mask, which I dubbed I removed. Brush settings remain the same (Size: 80px. Hardness: 0% Opacity: 60% flow: 100%).
image47

Step 42

The remaining three layers close gaps and give a smoother appearance rock. Duplicate three more times with the first layer of rock. Move them as shown in the figure.
image48

Step 43

The principle of operation remains the same. I think it will not be difficult. Eliminate unnecessary parts with a layer mask. If you need to recover, some portion of the image to switch the background color to white and you'll recover and not clean. Red shows how I placed a piece of landscape.
