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.

step-026

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

step-026a

Step 27

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

step-027

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.

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

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).

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-035

Step 36

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

step-036

Step 37

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

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

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-040

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.
