Step 1Create a new canvas in Photoshop with the dimensions Width=2489px and Height=3872.
Step 21) Now import the image of the Model into Photoshop and create a mask around the body using the Pen Tool (P). While masking the hair create a rough mask because we will be using different technique to cut the hair with details. 2) Create a rough mask as shown around the hair and open the Refine Edge from Select>Refine Edge and set the output to New Layer and select the Refine Radius Tool and paint the edges of the hair to detect the fine details of the hair. Then press OK to separate the model into a new layer with fine details.
Step 31) Import the image of Wall Texture onto the canvas and place it on the background and add a Gaussian Blur of Radius=1.6px. 2) Now import the image of the Retro Wallpaper in the background and reduce its Opacity to 74%.
Step 4In this step we will be adding a forest backdrop to the background.
- Import the image of the Forest onto the background.
Step 5In this step we will be creating cracks in the background using textures.
- Import the image of the Cracks 1 onto the background and place it as shown.
Step 6In this step we will be color correcting the model to blend the model in the scene.
- With the model layer selected go to Image>Adjustments>Curves and set the curves as shown.
Step 7In this step we will be creating an adjustment layer of Brightness/Contrast to blend the scene together with even color correction. -Select Brightness/Contrast from the Adjustment Layers dropdown list at the bottom of the layers pallet, then set the Brightness of the layer to -45.
Step 8As we can see the edges of the hair is lacking sharp details, hence to achieve the desired effect select the Burn Tool (O) and paint the edges of the hair to get the sharp details of hair.
Step 9: In this step we are going to create a fountain tub under the women.
- Mask out the Fountain into a new layer using the Pen Tool(P).
