Turn any photo into a dot grid artwork with these Photoshop actions. You'll get great results with dots that change size. They get larger in brighter areas and smaller in darker areas. Free download available.
Then apply a Color Balance adjustment to change its colour very slightly:
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%.
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.
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.
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%.
Then set the blend mode to Color Dodge – 100%.
Taking ivy 3, add it to the left side of the lower part of the bottle. Then apply a Levels adjustment to darken, in clipping mask to darken it.
I then applied a Bevel & Emboss layer style to it. Right click on the layer and then select ‘Create layers’.
Take ivy 2 stock again and start adding them on the bottom part of the bottle using the same way like you did for the previous ones:
Merge (Cmd/Ctrl+E) all of these layers and name it ‘Bottom ivy’.
