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.
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.
Using the techniques described at steps 49 and 54 add two more splashes – one on the hair and one on the shoulder.
Use the Dynamic Splash brush to add more randomly sized splashes on the hair and on the shoulder.
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.
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.
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.
Create a new Levels Adjustment Layer with the settings shown below and clip it to the boat layer to lighten it.
Create a Color Balance Adjustment layer with the settings shown below and clip it to the boat layer to make it’s hue warmer.
On a new layer add some white splashes with the Dynamic Splash brush where the boat enters the water.
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.
