Apply a Bevel & Emboss and Inner Shadow layer style on it:

Then create a new layer under the bottom ivy layer, we will now paint some shadows. Take a soft black brush of Opacity – 23% and Flow – 21% and paint the shadows, if you feel it’s too dark, bring down the opacity of the layer to 65%.

Group both these layers together and name it ‘Bottom ivy’.

Step 101

I added a Hue/Saturation and Color Balance to match them with the rest.

After that, I added two Levels adjustment to darken the ivies:

Step 102

Then finally add a Curves layer to darken some part of the ivies even more:

Step 103

Using the same ivy 2 stock, keep adding on the bottle, along the edges and some on the bottom part as well. This is my result:

Group all of them together and name it ‘Bottom ivy 2’.

Add a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer to reduce its saturation.

Create a Levels adjustment to add contrast and darken the ivies.

Step 104

Add another Levels layer to darken some parts even more:

After that apply a Curves layer to brighten the left side of the ivy:

Step 105

To make some light effects, I created a new layer in clipping mask for the above group.

With colour #e2dabd, paint over the part of the ivy on the left. Keep the brush’s opacity very low, about 26%. Change the blend mode to Overlay – 100%.

Create more lighting by applying an Inner Shadow layer style for the whole group.

Then by right clicking on the layer style, select ‘Create layer’ and using a layer mask, erase the inner shadow effect from the unwanted parts where it must be dark.

Step 106

Now create a layer below the ‘bottom ivy’ group. Load the Tendrils brushes, and with the colour # 2c3e26, paint some tendrils under all the ivies to give some effects of dried ivies. I used 11 layers for this effect.

Step 107

Finally, group all these ivies group together, and then create a new layer above, in clipping mask. This is to recreate the light of the water and night sky falling on the ivies.

So on the first layer using a soft brush of 35% opacity, paint with colour #679db8 over the ivies as shown below:

Then change the blend mode to Color Dodge – 32%.

  1. I have to say, this may be long but it is the most complete tutorial I have ever seen and I have been looking at tutorials for 20 years. Thank you for the assets, your time and your expertise. It's wonderful. Don't worry about people with short attention spans! XOX

  2. I try but as a French speaker, it is realy hard and I couldn’t find some translation…
    Thanks anyway.

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

  4. 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.
