Create a Melancholic Scene of a Guy Standing in the Rain

Step 49

We will have rain coming from above (we’ll create the rain in later steps) but for now let’s add some splashes on the umbrella. Download the “Water Splashes” resource and extract the folder with the splashes somewhere on your computer. Open one of the splashes that you think will look good with Photoshop and copy/paste it in our scene over the umbrella. Press Ctrl + T to enter Free Transform, right click on the splash layer and choose Warp. Move around the handles to make the splash bend around the umbrella curvature. Once you’re done lower the splash opacity to 71%.

Step 50

Add a layer mask to the splash layer and hide all the areas that fall within the umbrella – leave just the splashes that are somewhat on the upper edge.

Step 51

Create a new layer and using the Dynamic Splash brush we created at step 11 add some more random splashes on the top of the umbrella and some water drops coming down as shown below. Use different brush sizes and opacities to randomize the effect.

Step 52

On a new layer set to Overlay blending mode paint with a white chalk brush some highlights on the upper edge of the umbrella.

Step 53

On a new layer set to Color Dodge blending mode paint with a white round soft brush at 30% opacity some mist on the edge of the umbrella.

Step 54

Create a new layer and paint some more water splashes with the Dynamic Splash brush as show below. It’s important that you use both large and very small brush sizes to achieve a pleasant effect.

Step 55

Now that we’re done with the umbrella let’s add some splashes on the guy. Create a new layer and paint some splashes on the jeans and the hand where they enter underwater with the Dynamic Splash brush.

Step 56

From the splashes folder you extracted at step 49 select one splash you like and place it near the jeans of the guy where he enters the water. Use the Free Transform and Warp (just like at step 49) to achieve a pleasant splash effect. Add a layer mask to hide the unwanted splashes. Add another splash near the hand. If one of the splashes is too bright you can lower its opacity and if it is too dark you can add a Levels Adjustment Layer (clip it to the desired splash) and drag the left dark arrows towards the right to lighten.

Step 57

Using the techniques described at steps 49 and 54 add two more splashes – one on the hair and one on the shoulder.

Step 58

Use the Dynamic Splash brush to add more randomly sized splashes on the hair and on the shoulder.

Step 59

On a new layer set to Overlay blending mode paint with a white small chalk brush some highlights on the shoulder and hair. On a new layer set to Color Dodge paint with a white round soft brush some mist on the shoulder and hair.

Step 60

Now let’s start adding some object to our awesome scene. Open the file “Boat” and copy/paste it in our scene. Place the boat on the surface of the water as shown below and resize it with Ctrl + T.

Step 61

Add a layer mask to the boat and with the round soft brush hide some of the bottom part of the boat to make it look submerged into water.

Step 62

Create a new Levels Adjustment Layer with the settings shown below and clip it to the boat layer to lighten it.

  1. Thank you for the fucked up tutorial, you jumped from step 19 to 80, i have lost 2hrs of my time for nothing, just to get stuck, such a waste of time , grrrrr.

  2. I really like this art... reminds me one my favorite 68´s song...everyday people---
    Sometimes I'm right and I can be wrong
    My own beliefs are in my song
    The butcher, the banker, the drummer and then
    Makes no difference what group I'm in
    I am everyday people, yeah, yeah!

  3. I can't find the chalk brush. I downloaded a couple but none of them produce the same results with the settings provided.

    Thanks for a great tut, though. I learned a lot.
