As I said, light goes from right-top. We have to show it. Create adjustments layer and choose brightness/contrast:

step-014b

step-018f

Step 19

Ok, bored enough? But here starts magic! Choose grass brush and pick colors #0a100d and #101518. Draw it on new layer on the edge of body shape model:

step-019

Step 20

Now on the floor, draw with big, white, soft brush some lights (40% opacity). Follow red strokes. Turn blending mode to Soft Light:

step-020

Step 21

Now we’ll add hair for our model. Add new layer. Pick really small brush (ex. 2-4px) and draw it. Follow red arrows. For choosing colors my “map” will help you:

step-021

Step 22

Now you have to add some blue reflections on model. Draw it on new layer with 1px soft brush #83b8e4 color. Again, red arrows will help you. Draw it really gently :):

step-022

Step 23 – world around her

Next step is adding lights to the woods. For this on new layer. Draw with soft, round brush color #83b8e4 on trees. But! Only by one side. Light goes from top-right corners, so it will fall from this side on woods;

step-023

Change opacity to 30%

step-023a

Step 24

Add new layer and pick soft round brush, 23 px wide. Change opacity of brush to 45%. Draw with it on edges of rocks and woods. Than change opacity to screen. Change layer opacity to 65%:

step-024

Step 25

On new layer draw with 2-4px wide, soft round brush light strokes on branches:

step-025

Red arrows always helpful. Remember about light source!

    I fail to advance beyond the first few steps of this tutorial. Grammar could be improved but is not that much of an issue. What bothers me is how many steps are skips, and how vague the description of every step is. Show more of what you’re doing, show more of your screen. We really need to see what you do in order to better understand.

    This tutorial absolutely sucks. First off his/her english is bad.. that’s not a problem. But you are doing things that some people don’t know how to get too and you’re skipping steps.
