Step 12

Make a new layer under model one. Use soft black brush with opacity about 30% to create shadow for model clothes, legs on the ground:

Step 13

To give the model more "dirty" look, choose wood texture, use Rectangular Marquee Tool (M) to make a selection :

Place this part on the model and use Warp Tool (Edit-Transform-Warp) to bend this part a little:

Change the mode of this layer to Soft Light 100%:

Step 14

From brush menu, choose Reset Brushes to change brush preset to default. Now on brush menu, click to choose one of Spatter brushes (mine is Spatter 24):

Press F5 to change settings for this brush:

Add layer mask to this wood texture layer. Use indicated brush to remove hard edges and create a subtle effect on the model:

Step 15

I darkened the effect with a Curves layer:

On its layer mask, reduce the dark with soft brush with very low opacity (10-15%) on model feet:

Step 16

After darkening, the model hair became very solid and unnatural. To correct it, I made a new layer on the top, used brush with color #080707, 5 px to paint some soft parts and tiny hair strands:

Step 17

Open soil 2 stock. Take a part from it and position it above the model:

Use layer mask to get the look below:

Step 18

Drag the soil again into our pic:

Add layer mask to this one. Use black brush with hardness about 70-75% to paint inside this part to create a form of a cave.

Step 19

I wanted to fix something of the cave so active Clone Tool (S) and make a new layer:

Use this tool to remove these details:

Step 20

Make all the cave layers and clone one selected then press Cmd/Ctrl+G to make group for them. Change the mode of this group from Pass Through (default group mode) to Normal 100%. I named the cave layers "part 1" and "part 2". Create a Hue/Saturation layer within this group:

Step 21

Use Curves to darken the cave:

On Curves layer mask use brush with very low opacity (10-15%) to reduce the dark on some parts a little:

Step 22

Open branches 1 stock. Use Lasso Tool (L) to choose one part from this image then drag it into our image. Use Warp Tool to tweak this part as shown below:

Remember to place this layer under cave group.
