How to Create a Fantasy Photo Manipulation with Fire

step-051

Right-click on it and choose “Blending options”. Check Outer glow and Inner Glow.

step-051a

Step 52

Now it’s time to make lava on bottom. It’s very similar to making particles. Add New layer (Shift+Ctrl+N or shortcut). Use the same brush settings as before. Draw base of lava by long strokes.

step-052

Then, just go to previous layer – with particles. Right-click on it and choose “Copy layer style”. Then go to last layer, right-click on it and choose “Paste layer style”.

step-052a

Step 53

Add new layer (Shift+Ctrl+N or shortcut). Use 1px soft round brush with dynamic opacity, set #fffa70 color and draw highlight on the edges of clock from fire.

step-053

Step 54

Now you’ll set colors around lava. Add new layer (Shift+Ctrl+N or shortcut). Choose soft round brush, set #fdbe2f color and work with dynamic opacity. At first set opacity of brush to 50%. Draw something like piece of pizza (everybody loves pizza). Then, set opacity of brush to 100% and draw on arc of clock.

step-054

Change blending mode and opacity – Overlay, 26%.

step-054a

Step 55

For better effect, you can duplicate layer (drag and drop on “New layer” symbol or go to Layer > Duplicate layer…) with highlights of clock (see step 53) and blur it (Filter > Blur > Gaussian blur) (blur around 0,2px). Then, change blending mode of this layer to Soft light.

step-055

Step 56

You can add some shadows to your lava. Add new layer (Shift+Ctrl+N or shortcut). Use soft round, around 5px brush and set its opacity to 50%. Use darker color (#ff9f41) and draw shadows on lava.

step-056

Change blending mode of this layer to Overlay.

step-056a

Duplicate this layer – drag and drop on “New layer” symbol or go to Layer > Duplicate layer…, then change blending mode of duplicated layer to Multiply.

step-056b

Step 57

Back to layer with particles. Duplicate it (drag and drop on “New layer” symbol or go to Layer > Duplicate layer…) and drag above all layers. Set its fill to 0%, change opacity to 61%.

step-057

Right-click on it and choose “Blending options”. Check Outer glow and uncheck Inner Glow.

step-057a

Step 58

Do the same with lava on bottom. Duplicate layer with base of lava (drag and drop on “New layer” symbol or go to Layer > Duplicate layer…). Then, just go to glow-top layer (step 57) and right-click on it. Choose “Copy layer style”. Then, just click on your duplicated lava layer with right-click and choose “Paste layer style”.

step-058

Step 59

Let’s back between fire and shoes base layers. Add new layer (Shift+Ctrl+N or shortcut). You’ll make highlight on eyes. Use 2px soft round brush and draw as is shown. I used white color for eye, light-orange and yellow for iris and white for iris highlight.

step-059

Step 60

Make contour on face and her lips. Add new layer (Shift+Ctrl+N or shortcut). Just use 1px soft round brush and change color dynamicly from white – for highlight parts, by orange – for lighter parts, and end with blue/violet to make darker parts outlines.

step-060

Step 61

Make shadows on face. Add new layer (Shift+Ctrl+N or shortcut). Then, use soft round brush with opacity around 60%. Use #5e1d11 color and draw shadows on nose, face edge and hair.

step-061

Decrease its opacity to around 40% (here:37%), change blending option to Multiply.

step-061a

Decrease its opacity to around 40% (here:37%), change blending option to Multiply.

step-061a

Step 62

Again add new layer (Shift+Ctrl+N or shortcut). Use the same size and opacity of brush. Change color to white. Draw highlight on nose, on chin and on cheeks.
