Next, we need to add more grass. But first we need to import brushes. Select a Brush Tool(B) and right click on background. Now click on the gear icon and Import Brushes (Select a downloaded brush).
Create a new layer(below Elephant layer) and select Brush Tool(B) and right click on background to select skin and hair texture folder.
Now we can paint grass, for color use similar as background grass. See the image bellow.
Next go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur and set radius to 2.3px
Now we will remove nose with the Clone Stamp tool. Pick a soft brush. Set the size of the clone stamp so it will cover the object you want to remove. It takes some practice to know how hard and big your brush should be.
A good setting to start is a medium soft brush to achieve smooth edges. Move the cursor to the area you want to take pixels from. In this case I need sand. Use Alt-click to confirm your source pixels. The cursor will change into crosshairs.
The moment you click, the cursor will change and show the pixels you’ve cloned.
Now start painting over the object you want to remove. Create a new layer, If it’s noticeable, go back to clone other pixels and continue painting.
Add Adjustment Layer "Curves"
Add Adjustment Layer Color Balance, then use Brush Tool(B) Soft Round with foreground color black and paint on Elephant.
Now add seome highlight to elephant, use Brush Tool(B) Soft Round with foreground color white and paint on the spine of an elephant. Blend mode change to Overlay with Opacity to 60%.
Next, select Field and go to File > Open and select Field. Use Rectangular Marquee Tool(M). With the Rectangular Marquee tool, drag over the area you want to select. Hold down Shift as you drag to constrain the marquee to(release the mouse button before you release Shift to keep the selection shape constrained).
After the selection area has been created, simply copy (Ctrl / Cmd + C) and Paste (Ctrl / Cmd + V) it to our work canvas(Below Elephant Layer). Then position the image with the transform tool (Ctrl / Cmd + T). Hold Alt + Shift and resterize like image below. In Photoshop CC only hold Alt to resterize al sides together. Then create layer mask and use Soft Round brush with foreground color black and remove sky.

In the options bar, adjust the following mesh settings:
Determines the overall elasticity of the mesh.
Choose Distort for a highly elastic mesh good for warping wide-angle images or texture maps.
Determines the spacing of mesh points. More Points increases precision but requires more processing time; Fewer Points does the opposite.
Expands or contracts the outer edge of the mesh.
