Create a Fantasy Photo Manipulation of Valkyrie

step-032a

Step 33

Place to your file particles stock (below model, above gradient layer). Change blending mode to Screen and opacity to 69%.

step-033

Step 34

Repeat this step. I used three particles layers on background (with the same settings).

step-034

Step 35

If everything is clear, it’s time to make a mask. Place stock into the file. Isolate part of it as is shown (by masking).

step-035

Step 36

Add adjustment layer with Curves. Make it clippy. It gives unitary tone for the whole stock.

step-036

Step 37

Next, add clipping adjustment layer with Hue/Saturation. It will give better possibility to adjust everything to background and model.

step-037

Step 38

On this adjustment layer add mask. With gray, soft brush erase some places. Leave only top of the prop.

step-038

Step 39

Add again clipping Hue/Saturation layer.

step-039

Step 40

Create new clipping layer. Pick soft, dark-brown brush and draw on the centre of her mask. Use brush with dynamic opacity for making shadows and lights.

step-040

Step 41

Change blending mode of drawn layer to Multiply and Opacity to 70% – If you used lesser opacity of brush, place will be lighter and vice versa.

step-041

Step 42

Add new clipping layer. With small, soft brush (ex 2px) pick white beige color. Draw contour of the mask and pattern of mask.

step-042

Step 43

Again add clipping layer. You will create light on mask set. Pick soft brush #968979 color and draw on the left and right side of mask, as shown. For better effect, you can use lighter tones of beige on the edges of mask.

step-043

At the end, change blending mode to Screen.

step-043a

Step 44

Back below mask. Create new layer (without clipping). Use small, soft brush, with dark beige color and draw shadows below mask, on the neck and hair. Then change blending mode to multiply.

step-044

Step 45

Below mask place wing. Mask it as is shown. Erase also second wing.

step-045

Step 46

Add Hue/Saturation adjustment layer and make clipping mask (RMB > Create clipping mask). Set it as shown. You should make it brighter, for further transforms of colors.

step-046

Step 47

Next, add adjustment layer with Color/Balance.

step-047

Step 48

Then, add Brightness/Contrast layer – also clippy, because wing is still too dark.

step-048

Step 49

Add new layer and make it clippy (RMB > Create clipping mask). Pick soft, brown brush and draw on the right side of wing.

step-049

Change blending mode to Screen.

step-049a

Step 50

On new clipping layer repeat 49 step, but use lighter brush.

step-050

Step 51

Add clipping layer. You will create shadows on wings. Use smaller brush and draw below the feathers. Then change blending option to Multiply.

step-051

Step 52

At the end of making wings, choose on new (without clipping) layer small (1px) white brush and draw light contour.

step-052

Step 53

Place wing layers to one folder, then duplicate it (as shown). Flip whole folder horizontally and transform (ctrl+T).

step-053

Step 54

Go on the top of the layers. On new layer draw with small brush some particles. Then from top menu choose Filter > Blur > Radial blur. Set amount to 2. Then decrease opacity to 75%.

step-054

Step 55

Now place particles brush PSD to your file. Add Radial blur and set it as shown.
