How to Create a Fantasy Woman Photo Manipulation with Adobe Photoshop

Step 21

Select two fringe parts of the dragon to add to both sides of the model's head. Use Ctrl+T to distort the part on the right to fit the pose of the head.
Add a mask to each of these layers to remove the part covering the face and blend them with the existing headpiece parts.

Step 22

On each of the dragon layers, make a new layer, change the mode to Overlay 100% and fill with 50% gray. Use the Dodge Tool to brighten some details on these parts.

Step 23

Make a group for the dragon layers and add a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer to desaturate the dragon parts.
Create a Curves adjustment layer to brighten the dragon parts. On this layer mask, paint on two small parts on their middle and left to reduce the lightness there.
Make a new layer and use a small brush with the color #e5deda to paint more light on the end of the fringe and the top of these parts.

Step 24

Open the armor image and take a small part at on the right leg to add to the waist of the model. Use Ctrl+T with the Warp mode to tweak this part to fit the body of the model.
Add a mask to this layer to remove the small part on the left. 

Step 25

Duplicate this layer twice and move them to the back to make a contour for the dress. 

Step 26

Make a group for these layers and add a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer within this group and change the Master settings:
Create a Curves adjustment layer to darken these parts a bit. On the layer mask, paint on the middle of the contour on the back to reduce the effect there.

Step 27

Drag the nebula 1 image into our main canvas and use Ctr+T to enlarge it a bit to fit the size of the main document.
Add a mask to this layer to erase the middle around the model, leaving the effect visible subtly on the corners of the canvas and the bottom of the model's dress.

Step 28

Make a Color Balance adjustment layer to change the color of the effect to fit the background. 
Add a Curves adjustment layer to change the color and brighten the nebula effect . Paint on the top middle so it won't  be affected by this adjustment layer. 

Step 29

Place the nebula 2 image onto our main canvas and use a layer mask to erase the middle part around the upper body of the model, leaving some dreamy effect on the bottom of her dress and the corners.  

Step 30

Create a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer and alter the Reds values:

Step 31

Open the asteroids image and use the Lasso Tool to select one to add to the rising hand of the model. Add a mask to this layer to remove the part covering the thumb to make the asteroid look like being held within the hand. 
Take other asteroids to add around the model and vary their size to make them appear different.

Step 32

Add some bigger asteroids to the corners of the canvas and apply a Gaussian Blur of 8 px to each of these layers.

Step 33

Make a group for the asteroid layers and create a Color Balance adjustment layer and change the Midtones and Highlights settings:
Make a Curves adjustment layer to increase the light and decrease the contrast of the asteroids. On this layer mask, use a soft black brush to reduce the light on the shadow areas of the asteroids.
