Step 26

As you can see, armor have floral ornaments. Add new layer. By using small, soft brush and white beige (#eceae5) color draw on the edges of ornaments. Try to avoid shadowed fragments. I also used some brown strokes, for better look.


With the same settings draw contour on arms. Then, change blending mode to Screen and opacity to 69% (^^).


Step 27

On new layer I added also contour of the gown, arms and hair.


Step 28

It's time to make hair. You can use brush or whole stock to make it. But! Why no both? I used stock and pen tablet to make hair.


Step 29

Back below layer with the model. Place smoke stock as is shown.


Step 30

Then add adjustment layer with Hue/Saturation. You will make it brighter. Set it as shown. Make it clippy by RMB > Create clipping mask.


Step 31

By holding ctrl choose smoke and adjustment layer. Duplicate it. Next, by clicking Ctrl + T flip it horizontally.


Step 32

Create new layer - above smoke, below model. Choose gradient tool. Set it white - transparent and fill it as is shown:


Set blending mode to Soft light and opacity to 65%.


Step 33

Place to your file particles stock (below model, above gradient layer). Change blending mode to Screen and opacity to 69%.


Step 34

Repeat this step. I used three particles layers on background (with the same settings).


Step 35

If everything is clear, it's time to make a mask. Place stock into the file. Isolate part of it as is shown (by masking).


Step 36

Add adjustment layer with Curves. Make it clippy. It gives unitary tone for the whole stock.


Step 37

Next, add clipping adjustment layer with Hue/Saturation. It will give better possibility to adjust everything to background and model.


Step 38

On this adjustment layer add mask. With gray, soft brush erase some places. Leave only top of the prop.


Step 39

Add again clipping Hue/Saturation layer.


Step 40

Create new clipping layer. Pick soft, dark-brown brush and draw on the centre of her mask. Use brush with dynamic opacity for making shadows and lights.


Step 41

Change blending mode of drawn layer to Multiply and Opacity to 70% - If you used lesser opacity of brush, place will be lighter and vice versa.
