Create a Surreal and Magical Dream Bottle Landscape

Create a Surreal and Magical Dream Bottle Landscape
Then apply the Warp transform tool as shown below: Make a layer mask for it and taking a soft brush of opacity about 45%, mask away the unwanted parts as done with the other previous layers:

Step 29

Darken the brook and add a bit of contrast by applying a Levels adjustment layer in clipping mask. Fill it's layer mask with black (Alt+Backspace- when the Foreground color is black) and taking a soft brush with the foreground colour set to white, bring back the effect of the Levels layer from the part shown in the selection below: Create a second Levels adjustment layer, this time to brighten some parts of the brook. Fill it’s layer mask with black and taking a soft brush with the Foreground color set to white, reveal back the Levels effects from the selection shown below: Create a Vibrance adjustment layer (set as a clipping mask) and decrease the Vibrance to -16 and Saturation to -17 :

Step 30

Duplicate (Cmd/Ctrl+J) the 'brook 2' layer, activate the free transform tool (Cmd/Ctrl+T) and apply Flip Horizontal. And place it at the far right corner of the scene as shown below:

Step 31

Just like we did with the previous layer, create a Levels adjustment layer in clipping mask to darken the brook layer. Fill the layer mask with black and then taking a soft brush -100% opacity and with foreground color set to white, reveal back the Levels effect from the part indicated by the selection: Create Levels once again to brighten some part of the brook. Fill it's layer mask with black, then taking a soft brush as we did in the previous step reveal back the effect with white as the foreground color. Then apply a Vibrance adjustment and decrease the Vibrance value to -34:

Step 32

Open Waterfall 1 stock. I only take the part of waterfall flow. Move it onto the left peak after scaling it down, then using a layer mask hide away the hard edges with a soft brush. Create a Levels layer in clipping mask to make it seem blended and also to add a bit of contrast:

Step 33

I used Levels adjustment layer with Clipping Mask to make color and brightness of waterfall fit the rest.

Step 34

Open waterfall 2 stock and only take the waterfall flow part. Drag it onto your main document above the waterfall 1 layer and scale down it's size (Edit > Free Transform Tool). Using layer mask, mask away the hard edges and some unwanted parts as well. With the Warp transform tool, tweak it to change the direction of the water flowing down:

Step 35

I used a Levels adjustment layer with Clipping Mask to make color and brightness of waterfall fit the rest.

Step 36

Open waterfall 3 stock and select the lower part of the waterfall flowing. Scale its size as needed and then place it like this: With the layer mask, remove the unwanted parts with a soft brush of opacity -37% and flow -64%. Reduce the waterfall layer’s opacity to 66%.

Step 37

Since the water is very bright, create a Hue/Saturation layer (in clipping mask) and decrease the Saturation to -98: Add some contrast by applying a Curves adjustment, again in clipping mask: Apply a Brightness layer and reduce the brightness to -72:

Step 38

Open the 4th waterfall stock and select the part shown in the selection. Drag it onto our main document and reduce its size (Cmd/Ctrl+T) and flip horizontally (Edit > Free Transform > Flip Horizontal). When we have the desired position and the transform tool is still activated, right click again to show up the transforming option box. This time, choose Warp. Now try to alter the shape of the rock by warping it.

  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.
