Step 18

I used color #634739 to complete the hair drawing. Here is the result of this layer only and final result of model with all hair layers:

Step 19

Turn off original and fill layer. Press Cmd/Ctrl+Option/Alt+Shift+E to merge all transparent layers (extracted model and hair ones). Place her onto the pagan symbol and transform her to fit the direction of our image:

Step 20

Open wings stock. As it has transparent background so just use Move Tool to drag the wings into our piece and place them behind the model (set this layer under model one too):

Step 21

There are some small parts on the wings I don't like so I created a new layer with Clipping Mask and used Clone Tool to remove it:

Step 22

I found some details of the wing too sharp against the rest:

Create a new layer (Clipping Mask) and use Smudge Tool with Strength 34% to soften these details. Here are the parts I smudged and you can see the result below:

Step 23

To darken the wings I used a Curves layer:

On Curves layer mask I used brush with opacity and flow about 30-35% to reduce dark effects on some parts shown below:

angel23b

Step 24

I want to make main light coming from the top right to bottom left to fit with the direction of the elements in our image. To make proper light on the wings following this direction, make a new layer (Clipping Mask), load the wings selection (as done with the pagan symbol). Go to Edit-Stroke and choose white color with 6 px:

angel24b

Apply Gassian Blur with 20 px:

Add layer mask to this layer and use brush to reduce the light on the wings:

angel24d
angel24e

Step 25

I used same method to add more light to the wing contour, but with stroke 1 px, Gassian Blur 1 px and layer mask:

angel25a
angel25b
angel25c

Step 26

Create a Gradient Map layer above the wings ones (but still under model layer).

Lower opacity of this Gradient Map layer to 50%. On Gradient Map layer mask use brush to erase the left side and reduce blue effect on the right:

Step 27

I used a Photo Filter layer for the image:

Step 28

Add a Curves layer to darken the scene:

Step 29

I used a Color Balance layer to enhance the red effect:

Step 30

It's time to take care of model. Make a new layer under model one and create shadow for her as done with the symbol, but with 90% opacity and apply Gassian Blur with 7 px:
