Now hit Ctrl/Cmd+A to select everything, and then Ctrl/Cmd+C to copy the cube. Go back to our project, and hit Ctrl/Cmd+V to paste the cube that we just copied. You can close the cube psd if you want to, we’re not going to use that anymore.
Make sure the cube layer is right below the layer of the planet.
Press Ctrl+T to go into Free Transform Mode (or Edit -> Free Transform), and use it to resize and move the cube into this position:
Now let’s start adding the ropes. Go to File -> Place and add the rope stock into our project.
Don’t worry about the order of the layers now. Just drag the rope layer 4 times into the Create New Layer button to make 4 copies of it. (or use the shortcut Ctrl/Cmd+J 4 times).
After that, we’re going to place one of the rope layers above the Planet layer, and the three others below it, like this:
Select the second rope layer (the one right below the planet layer) and let’s use it to start our manipulation. Hit Ctrl/Cmd+T (Edit-> Free Transform) and use the Free Transform Tool to resize, move and rotate the rope. The aim of this process is to try to create a cube made of ropes, so each rope will go into one corner of the cube. We’re going to do the top and the bottom part of the cube later, so start by adjusting the first rope to the right corner of the cube.
Do the same thing for the next rope, use the Free Transform Tool again, but this time match the rope with the left side of the cube.
The third and last rope layer below the planet will go on the corner behind the planet, so before you start using the Free Transform Tool, click on the eye on the left side of the planet layer to hide it.
Now select the rope above the planet layer and match it to the corner in the front using the Free Transform Tool.
And this is what your scene should be looking like right now:
The best thing about working with Smart Objects is that even though we just resized all these rope layers, we can still resize them back to their original size without loosing quality of the image, so we’re going to use that in our advantage now. Instead of placing the rope stock again in our image, select the first rope layer (above the planet layer) and make 4 more copies of it (Ctrl/Cmd+J, or drag them to the New Layer button).
