Step 14

Use Pen Tool (P) to create a contour of model. Be sure to leave a little background in the field of hair. Make selection from path (Feather Radius: 0px) and use Refine Edge (Cmd/Ctrl + Opt/Alt + R or Select > Refine Edge) to remove the remnants of the background and make selection more smooth. In Refine Edge Set View "On Black", checkbox on "Smart Radius", Radius: 4.0px, Shift Edge: -12%. Use brush in this window to remove pieces of background from hair and remove gray shadow from dress. Click Ok when you finish it.
Add a layer mask to remove background (Layer > Layer Mask > Reveal Selection to use button on Layer Panel). On the layer mask, I remove her hand to replace it with another photo. Use Hard Round brush to not to damage a model.

Step 15

Repeat the previous two steps (Steps 13-14) for a photo with the second model (Model 2). Only this time, on a layer mask, remove all except model's hand. Try to position the hand so that it look natural. In the second picture you can see my result, After all, I combined the two models into one group (Cmd/Ctrl + G) "Model".

Step 16

I instantly make light and shadow for model that she perfectly fit into the interior. Create a new nondestructive layer (Overlay-neutral color) (Cmd/Ctrl + Shift + N) and use Dodge and Burn tools (O) from Step 12 (but change: Size: 100- 250px) to create shadow on both sides of the model and light on hairs, eyes, arms. Note that the light will come from the leopard, books, magic ball in her hands. Make this layer as Clipping Mask (Cmd/Ctrl + Opt/Alt + G or right click on layer > Create Clipping Mask).
Create a normal new layer (Cmd/Ctrl + Shift + N) below "model" group. Select Brush Tool (B) (Size: 500px, Opacity: 100%, Hardness: 0%, Roundness: 40% (F5)) and draw shadow under model also paint the hem of her dress.
Once add the book. Place image "book_png_by_mariasemelevich-d87y7zn" above model's group. Resize (Cmd/Ctrl + T) book down that size be proportional to model. Place the book little over a hand to strengthen the ability of magic :).

Step 17

It's time to fire a leopard! On the main picture is all well and we begin to details. We will do a leopard in a new document, and then add it to the main picture. So Open image "snow_leopard_stock_20_by_hotnstock-d4zeh7v" in Photoshop (Cmd/Ctrl + O or File> Open) and duplicate it (Cmd/Ctrl + J). Make contour and then selection of leopard using Pen Tool (P) (Feather Radius: 0px). Try to do not get in selection particles of background and hair not cut. This does not mean you have to cut each hairs by hand. Just try to draw the contour with minimal background presence.

Step 18

Go to Refine Edge (Cmd/Ctrl + Opt/Alt + R), set checkbox "Smart Radius" and Radius: 4.2px, Shift Edge: -10%. Use brush in this window and draw on the inner side of the contour (on leopard, and not on the background). Add a layer mask to this layer and again duplicate it (Cmd/Ctrl + J) (This copy is in case you have something goes wrong with the next step).
Hide all the layers below by clicking on the eye icon to the left of the desired layer. Select Brush Tool (B), press F5 and set form: "Dune Grass" (from a standard brush set of Photoshop) Size: 40px, Opacity: 100%, Spacing: 10%, Angle - change depending on the slope on a leopard fur. In Shape Dynamics set Size Jitter: 55%, Angle Jitter: 10%. Go to next tab "Scattering" and set Scatter: 66%, Count: 1. Uncheck "Color Dynamics" and "Transfer".
