Freshly at this point we will do the flip (Edit > Transform >> Flip horizontal).
Now we don’t have only to make a nice edge shape. We also have to make it fit to the first part of eggshell.
While you have inner eggshell layer selected, go to Edit > Transform >> Warp. Again, the beginning of the arrow is a handling point and the direction indicates the direction itself. Don’t look on the width of each arrow.
See what we wanted to achieve? The flow of the shape and its fitness on borders.
Create new clipping layer to the inner eggshell.
Pick gradient tool (we still have same dark color and same gradient settings) and make two linear gradients. Actually you can make even more gradients. Just watch out for the shadows pervasion. I made one more gradient and changed the layer’s opacity to 30-50% with blending mode of Multiply.
You should also make some small gradients as below to complete the 3D look. But don’t get over with a darkest parts.
You can also make some really soft gradients one the same layer from the top so the edge (that we will create in the future) will be more visible.
At the end I’ve duplicated the gradient’s layer and on the copy changed the opacity to 30% and blending mode to Overlay.
You can try to play with gradients even more by adding some more of them. Try to achieve a deep/sphere effect.
Now duplicate the eggshell layer:
Move the copy few pixels upward. Then go to Image > Adjustments >> brightness/Contrast and type 30 in the brightness input.
Go to Edit > Transform >> Warp and try to achieve some 3d look of the edge.
We are done. Now you can hide the brighten layer under the original one in layer’s order or just make a selection (as I did) of an original layer and hit [Delete.jpg">.
That’s how the egg looks for now:
Some of the edges needs little fixes. Zoom in your image and look for details to repair, like one below:
Just make a selection and fill it out with light color.
The previous deletion causes to destroy whole bottom edge (it is semi transparent), but I won’t repair this for it is more useful for us than unhelpful. In this case it makes a contrast transition.
At the end add some texture to the eggshell (but a little, really, small touch).
This could be some noised image. Actually I used a brush here with very small opacity. Layer on 15% Multiply. Just made some bigger and smaller round-brush paints (pretty a lot of them but in the sphere of good taste).
This is the last step of creating egg. We had to make an edge on the inner eggshell layer. So, make a selection from inner eggshell ([ctrl.jpg"> + [click.jpg"> on a thumbnail) and go to Edit > Transform >> Warp. I won’t show you the steps of movement, just try to figure them out by yourselves. You have seen previous workouts. Here is a final transformation:
Now create new clipping mask layer to the inner eggshell. Then go to Select > Inverse. Pick hard round brush with very light color (almost white like #faf5fc) and paint an edge.
You can check how this layer will looks on Overlay blending mode.
And here we go with yolk. Pick an Ellipse tool and create new layer between eggshell and inner eggshell.
