Do the same with another eye.

Step 9

Make a new layer and use a soft brush with the color #c6a28d,, the opacity about 43% to reduce the highlight on the arms.
Create a new layer and use a soft brush with the color #dcbfae to paint light on the contour of the right arm and the back.

Step 10

Add a Color Balance adjustment layer and change the Midtones settings:

Step 11

Make a Curves adjustment layer and reduce the lightness. On this layer mask, use a soft black brush to erase the dark effect on the contour of the model skin and hair. 

Step 12

Create a Curves adjustment layer to bring more light to the contour of the model. The selected parts show where to paint on the layer mask.

Step 13

Make a new layer, change the mode to Overlay 100% and fill with 50% gray:
Activate the Dodge and Burn Tool (O) with Midtones Range, Exposure about 15-20% to refine the light and shadow on the arms, face and back of the model. You can see how I did it with Normal mode and the result with Overlay mode. 

Step 14

Open the wing image and take the wing part on the right of the back to add to the lower body of the model in the main document. Use Ctrl+T to rotate it as shown below.
Duplicate this layer and flip it horizontally and move to another side of the model's body.

Step 15

Duplicate this layer and use Ctrl+T with the Warp mode to bend the wing part to fit the body of the model.
Add a mask to this layer and use a hard black brush to erase the top and bottom of this part.

Step 16

Select all wing layers and hit Ctrl+G to make a group for them. Change the group mode to Normal 100% and make a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer to desaturate the wing dress. 
Create a Curves adjustment layer to brighten the wing dress. On this layer mask, paint on some shadow areas of the dress to keep its contrast.

Step 17

We'll add some 3D objects to make a headpiece for the model. Open the 3D 1 image and isolate the objects using the Magic Wand Tool (W).  Use the Lasso Tool to select one object in the middle to add to the model's head. 
Open the 3D 2 image and take the object in the left bottom to add to the higher position on the model's head and flip it horizontally. 

Step 18

Make a new layer above the 3D 1 layer, change the mode to Overlay 100% and fill it with 50% gray. Use the Burn Tool to darken the bottom right of the object.

Step 19

Make a group for all 3D and the burning layers and create a Color Balance adjustment layer within this group. Change the Midtones and Shadows settings:
Add a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer and alter the Master values:
Create a Curves adjustment layer to brighten the top of the 3D objects. On this layer mask, paint on their bottom to keep its lightness. 

Step 20

Open the dragon statue image and isolate it from the dark background. Use the Lasso Tool to take the tail to add to the model's head. Use Ctrl+T with the Warp mode to bend it to fit the head's form.
Use a layer mask to erase the small detail at the bottom of this part.
