At this stage, everything is done and you can move on. That's about is you should get. All layers with adjustment layers, I will integrate into one group "night FX".


Step 13

And now we get down to the image of our magician. I had to use a few photos of a girl to create a correct posture. Start by adding the first model photo (File > Place (Place Embedded)) "stock___vampiria_by_mahafsoun-d7faxvr" (Model 1). Resize the image I did not, but there is one very important point and I do not advise you to use it often. To model seemed a little bit higher than I did reduce the width of the photo, and increased in height (if you use this only in very extreme cases, and so that all parts of the body remained normal).


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).
