Create a Surreal and Magical Dream Bottle Landscape

Create a Surreal and Magical Dream Bottle Landscape
To remove the drop shadow effect from the unwanted parts, right-click on the ivy layer and select ‘Create Layers’. And then erase the shadows from the part shown below using a layer mask: Reduce the Drop Shadow layer’s Opacity to 75%.

Step 91

I created a Levels adjustment on the ivy and applied the following changes on the Blues channel to give it a bit of light bluish color. Create a second Levels adjustment to brighten the darken leaves of the ivy. Fill its layer mask with colour black and using a soft white brush, bring back the effect on the dark leaves. Desaturate the leaves by adding a Hue/saturation layer. I added some contrast by applying some shadow and lighting. So create two layers of Levels adjustment, one for lighting and the other for shadows. Then fill their layer masks with black and with foreground colour set to white, brush on it to reveal back the result from the areas shown below; Group the ivy and its adjustment together and name it ‘Ivy1’.

Step 92

To add further lighting effect on the ivy, create a new layer above the group and set it as a clipping mask. Pick soft colour #bda95d and paint along the edges of the ivy where the light is coming from. Set the brush’s opacity – 26% and flow – 20%. Change the blend mode to Color Dodge – 100%.

Step 93

Extract the ivy 2 from the background. Copy a part of them and place it on the side of the bottle: Continue adding the ivies on the bottle using the same method. I used 9 layers for this effect:

Step 94

Group the ivies layers and name it ‘Ivy 2”. Use Hue/Saturation to desaturate the ivies: I used two Curves adjustment layers to add more contrast and match the lightness of the ivies with the rest. Then apply a Color Balance adjustment to change its colour very slightly:

Step 95

Create a new layer below the ivy 2’s first layer within the group. Paint some shadows under the ivy with a black brush of opacity and hardness of about 25%. I then applied a Bevel & Emboss layer style on the whole group to create some lighting. Right click on the group and select ‘create layers’. Then using the layer mask, erase the effect of the layer style from the inner part of the ivies. Create a new layer above the group and set it as clipping mask. Pick a soft colour #d4941a and paint some lighting along the edges of the ivies. Use the brush opacity as 29%. Change the blend mode to Color Dodge – 40%.

Step 96

Now take Ivy 3 and place it on the bottle above ivy 2. With the transform tool resize it and then use the Warp tool to change its shape. Using a layer mask, erase the unwanted part of the ivy and then apply a Bevel & Emboss layer style to it. Continue adding the ivies on the bottle using the same method of warping, using layer, etc. I used 22 layers for this effect.

Step 97

Open the Ivy 4 stock and add it on the bottle. Then group all these layers of ivies and name it ‘Ivy 3’. Use a Hue/Saturation and Color Balance adjustments to match the ivies with the rest: I used two Curves layer to adjust the lighting and shadows.

Step 98

To enhance the lighting on the ivies even more, create a new layer above the group in clipping mask, name it ‘Lighting effect’ and choose the colour #bda95d to paint along the edges of the ivies with a soft brush of opacity – 27%.

  1. Awesome tutorial. I always wonder how much patience these guys have to write such a long and detailed article.

  2. It means that the .exe file is missing. Sometimes it happens because you have had a previous version of it and accidentally deleted it. But maybe you are installing it from a CD-ROM and it doesn't have the file or it is located in another folder. Try to open the folder ahead i.e.: C:users-AppDataLocalAdobeOOBEPDAppDECore and see if there is any exe file. Another reason could be the path's name.
