Select the four new ropes we just created (click on the first one, hold shift and click on the last one) and drag them below our planet layer, like this:
Now we’re going to repeat the exact same process we used to match the ropes to the corners of the cube before, but this time it will be easier because the rope will be smaller already. So just start selecting each rope layer and chose one of the corners of the bottom of the cube to match it with. Here’s how I did mine:
Remember to hide the planet again to do the corners in the back.
And here is the result:
Now we’re going to do the same thing we did before one last time, to build the top part of our cube. Select the first rope layer and make 4 copies of it (Ctrl/Cmd+J or drag it to the New Layer button).
And use the Free Transform Tool again to build the top and last part of our cube.
Now we have a lot of layers and our project is all messy, but don’t worry, we’ll fix that.
Select all the ropes above the planet layer (Click on the first one, hold Shift and then click on the last one) and drag them to the New Group button (or Ctrl/Cmd+G) to create a new group with them. Name this new group “Ropes in front”.
Do the same thing for the ropes below the planet, but this time name this group “Ropes in the back”.
You can also delete the 3d cube stock we used to build our rope cube because we won’t be needing it anymore. Just click on its layer and drag it to the trash can on the layers panel.
By the end of this step, here’s how your image should be looking like:
And this is how your layers panel should be looking like:
Step 10: Adding more ropes
Ok, so in this step we’re going to continue adding ropes to our project (it will be the last time I promiss). Go to File -> Place and select the rope stock again.
Make 4 copies of this rope layer (Ctrl/Cmd+J or drag it to the New Layer button).
Select all of this ropes by clicking on the first one, holding Shift and clicking on the last one, and create a new group with them (Shortcut: Ctrl/Cmd+G).
Name this new group “Ropes holding the cube” and place it between the Cave layer and the Sky/Clouds/Mountains group.
