Step 46

Add new layer (Layer > New > Layer..., Shift + ctrl + N or shortcut). Use 1px soft round brush and draw outline of rosary with light color (the same as in step 44).
step-046

Step 47

It's time to make a cross (or anything other) on rosary. At first, you should draw the base for it. As you can see, my cross is skewed. In this step Add new layer (Layer > New > Layer..., Shift + ctrl + N or shortcut). Use around 5px hard round brush and draw base with the same color as in step 44. Choose brush with dynamic pressure size.
step-047

Step 48

Place "wood" texture to your file, then make it a clipping mask (Alt+Ctrl+G, Layer > Create Clipping Mask).
step-048

Step 49

Add Brightness/Contrast adjustment layer. Layer > New Adjustment layer > Brightness/Contrast or use marked shortcut. Make it a clipping mask (Alt+Ctrl+G, Layer > Create Clipping Mask). Then, change its opacity to around 55%.
step-049

Step 50

In this steps I want to show another way to draw simply objects, only by using adjustments layers and its masks. If you want, you can also use method from step 40. If you aren't interested, go to step 53. Add Brightness/Contrast adjustment layer. Layer > New Adjustment layer > Brightness/Contrast or use marked shortcut. Make it a clipping mask (Alt+Ctrl+G, Layer > Create Clipping Mask). Click on white canvas next to layer thumbnail. Use hard round brush with pressure size to mask lighter parts. In this step, you should refine the shape in space.

Step 51

Next, repeat this step. Mask darker parts of the bottom of cross (I hope you understand)
step-050[1]

Step 52

Now, some lighter parts. Add Brightness/Contrast adjustment layer. Layer > New Adjustment layer > Brightness/Contrast or use marked shortcut. Make it a clipping mask (Alt+Ctrl+G, Layer > Create Clipping Mask). Click on white canvas next to layer thumbnail. Use hard round brush with pressure size to mask desired darker parts of cross. Remember about light source.
step-051

Step 53

Add new layer (Layer > New > Layer..., Shift + ctrl + N or shortcut). Use 1px soft round brush and draw outline of cross with light color. Stroke should be bolder, where is more light - remember! :)
step-053

Step 54

I think, the great idea will be making long shadow going from cross. Add new layer (Layer > New > Layer..., Shift + ctrl + N or shortcut). Then, pick soft round medium size brush (around 20px) and draw some diagonal. Then, from top menu choose Filter > Blur > Motion blur and set direction of blur, to direction of drawn strokes.
step-054
Then, change blending mode to Multiply.
step-054a

Step 55

It's time to ambient lights. Add new layer (Layer > New > Layer..., Shift + ctrl + N or shortcut). Pick soft round, 70 px brush. Set #ece196 color. Draw dots, where ambient light goes.
step-055
Decrease opacity of this layer to around 60% and change blending mode to Screen.
step-055a

Step 56

Add new layer (Layer > New > Layer..., Shift + ctrl + N or shortcut). Choose small hard round brush with black color. It will be base for hole. Draw shape of hole. I drew frayed shape by using pressure size brush.
step-056

Step 57

Add new layer (Layer > New > Layer..., Shift + ctrl + N or shortcut). Make it a clipping mask (Alt+Ctrl+G, Layer > Create Clipping Mask). Pick soft round, big brush with lighter color. Draw lighter parts in hole. It will looks like real.
