Create a Surreal and Magical Dream Bottle Landscape

Create a Surreal and Magical Dream Bottle Landscape
Here is the layer in Normal mode: And here is the preview of the layer in Overlay mode:

Step 51

Now open the bottle stock, extract it from the background with the Quick Selection Tool (W) and place it above the ‘Shadow/Lighting’ layer. Duplicate the bottle layer and change the bottom one to Multiply and the top layer to Screen blend mode. It should look the same as Normal mode.

Step 52

Now create a layer mask for the bottom bottle layer (which is set as multiply) and with a soft brush of low opacity, mask away from inside the bottle to make it look slightly transparent as shown below: Then create a Hue/Saturation layer in clipping mask above the multiply mode bottle and make Lightness to -100. Fill its layer mask with black (Alt+Backspace), and the with the foreground color set to white, paint back in where we want the shadows of the bottle, around the mouth and thick parts of the glass.

Step 53

Now select the top bottle layer (which is set on screen mode) and apply Inner Shadow layer style to it to create some lighting effects.

Step 54

Make a new layer below the first bottle layer (the one on multiply mode) and name it ‘Shadows’. We will paint some shadows for the bottle now. Pick the brush (B) tool, colour black and hardness- 39%. Opacity and Flow between 21-28%, paint some shadows like this:

Step 55

I found the black line along the center of the bottle very distracting. So picking the Clone Stamp Tool (S), create a new layer above the ‘bottle copy’ layer, in clipping mask and then clone the parts shown in the selection: Make sure to select the “Current & Below” option when cloning.

Step 56

Make another new layer above the clone tool one and name it lighting. We will now paint some lighting effects on the bottle. Using a soft brush with opacity -38%, Flow – 41% and varying between these two colours #ebe2ae, # b2a278, paint along the edges of the bottle where light is falling on it. Change the blend mode to Overlay — 100% Opacity.

Step 57

Create a new layer again (set as clipping mask) and name it ‘lighting 2’. And then with a soft brush, colour #4e796f, paint inside the bottle. Brush opacity and flow should be around 35-40%. Change the blend mode to Screen-69%.

Step 58

Make another new layer in clipping mask and name it shadows. Using the same brush settings as you did for the previous layer, paint with the same colour #4e796f as shown in the selection: Change the blend mode to Multiply and reduce the opacity to 63%.

Step 59

Create a new layer again, name it ‘lighting 3’. I wanted to make the lighting more intense on the bottle so taking a soft brush (opacity & flow 28-30%) and choosing the colour #f1b57a, paint over the part of the bottle indicated by the arrows shown in the image below: Change the blend mode to Screen – 100%.

Step 60

Now picking the colour #43756c, paint some slight shadows on the bottle. So create a new layer (in clipping mask) above the ‘lighting 3’ one with a soft brush of opacity about 16%, paint over the selected part of the bottle as shown below: Then change its blend mode to Multiply – 100%.

Step 61

Create a Curves adjustment layer to darken some part of the bottle. On this layer mask, use a soft black brush to erase around the areas selected:

  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.
