Create a Melancholic Scene of a Guy Standing in the Rain

Step 63

Create a Color Balance Adjustment layer with the settings shown below and clip it to the boat layer to make it’s hue warmer.

Step 64

On a new layer add some white splashes with the Dynamic Splash brush where the boat enters the water.

Step 65

Open the file “Islands” and with the Quick Selection Tool (W) make a rough selection of the green island on the right. Copy/paste this selection into our scene and place it on top of the water on the right side.

Step 66

Add a layer mask to the island layer and with a round soft brush tool hide the bottom part of the island to give the impression that it is in the water.

Step 67

Create a Color Balance Adjustment Layer and clip it to the island. Use the settings shown below to give the island a green hue.

Step 68

Use the Dynamic Splash brush to create some waves where the island meets the water (use a new layer of course).

Step 69

Open the file “Palm” and copy/paste the palm into our scene. Resize the palm and place it over the island as shown below. Use a layer mask to hide the bottom parts of the palm tree.

Step 70

Create a Levels Adjustment Layer with the settings shown below and clip it to the palm tree layer to darken it.

Step 71

Create a Color Balance Adjustment Layer with the settings shown below and clip it to the palm tree layer to match its color with the island overall color.

Step 72

Download and import the “Rain Brush” by double clicking on the .abr file. On a new layer use one of the rain brushes to create some random white rain coming from above. I used two layers to have more option for fine tuning. Don’t worry about extra rain – we’ll get rid of it in the next step.

Step 73

Use layer masks on the two rain layers to hide the rain that is showing on the underwater section of the scene. I also grouped the two rain layers together and added a layer mask to the group where I kept hiding sections of the rain that were not appropriate. We are going to add later in this tutorial a cloud but for now let’s keep going.

Step 74

I wanted to simulate the way the water splashes when a rain drop hits the surface so here’s how I did it. First create a new layer and with the Dynamic Splash brush paint some elliptical splash groups wherever a rain drop is near the water surface. Do this for all the rain drops that are near the water surface.

Step 75

Create a new layer and set the blending mode to Color Dodge. Sample a green color from the water and with a round soft brush at 30% opacity paint in the middle of each splash you created at the previous step.

Step 76

Now let’s create some cloudy mists over the rain. Create a new layer and set the colors to default with D. Render some clouds (Filter > Render > Clouds) and change the blending mode of the rendered clouds layer to Screen. Lower the opacity to 41%.

Step 77

Add a layer mask to the rendered clouds layer and fill it with black. With a white round soft brush at 50% opacity paint over the rain (in the layer mask) to reveal the mist in that area.

Step 78

Now let’s add the rain cloud. Download the “Cloud Brushes” and import by double clicking the .abr file. Choose a brush cloud you like and create white cloud on a new layer sitting just where the rain is starting.

  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.
