Create a Surreal and Magical Dream Bottle Landscape

Create a Surreal and Magical Dream Bottle Landscape

Step 62

Create another Curves layer this one for brightening the bottle. Fill its layer mask with black and with a soft brush (foreground colour set to white), reveal back the effect of the Curves layer around the parts of the bottle indicated by the selection below:

Step 63

I used a Photo Filter adjustment layer to add contrast on some parts of the bottle: Then fill its layer mask with colour black and taking a white brush, erase on these parts to reveal back the result of the photo filter adjustment. Set its blend mode to Hard Light and reduce the opacity to 51%.

Step 64

I then applied an Exposure adjustment to brighten only the dark parts of the bottle. Fill its layer mask with colour black and taking a white brush, erase on these parts to reveal back the effect of the Exposure layer.

Step 65

Add another Curves layer to darken the bottle and then filling its layer mask with black, pick a white brush and erase on these parts of the bottle to reveal back the darken effect of the Curves layer.

Step 66

I painted some more shadows on the lower part of the bottle. Create a new layer in clipping mask and name it ‘Bottle Shadow’, then take a black brush, hardness about 40% and opacity 25%, paint some shadows on the lower part of the bottle. Then change the blend mode to Soft Light with Opacity – 64%.

Step 67

Ok then, go down to your layers panel and duplicate (Cmd/Ctrl+J) the landscape, cliff and mountains groups. Place them on top of the bottle, and clip it above the ‘bottle shadow’ layer. Merge (Cmd/Ctrl+E) all these groups together and then hit Cmd/Ctrl+B on the keyboard to bring up the Color Balance adjustment. Apply the following values. Then change the blend mode to Soft Light and decrease the opacity to 34%. This is to show that the bottle is transparent and the background landscapes are visible through the glass.

Step 68

We will now add the moss textures over the bottle. Open moss texture 1 and drag it on the top of the layers panel. Go to Edit > Transform > Rotate and then with the transform tool still activated use the Warp tool to alter the shape of the texture and place it like this: Apply a layer mask and erase the lower and upper part of the texture; then change the blend mode to Multiply – 25%.

Step 69

Open the 2nd moss texture and drag it on top of the first moss texture. With the transform tool scale its size and place it on the mouth of the bottle. Using the Warp tool, change the shape as that of the bottle’s mouth. Using a layer mask, erase the right part of the texture with a soft brush. Then change the blend mode to Multiply – 44%.

Step 70

Duplicate the second texture layer and place it like shown in the image below. With the Warp tool, tweak its shape like the bottle’s and using a layer mask, erase the unwanted part with a soft brush of opacity about 50%. Change the blend mode to Multiply – 32%.

Step 71

Duplicate the previous texture layer thrice and place them as such:

Step 72

Open texture 3 stock, take the tree part and put it over the bottle: Go to Edit > Transform > Flip Vertical and with the transform tool still activated, use the Warp tool to transform its shape. Use a layer mask to erase the hard edges with a soft brush of low opacity (35%).

  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.
