Step 19

Now, to make the wings blend with the environment, we will need to adjust the lighting on it. To do that, create a new layer (Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + N) above the wings layer and then name this new layer as “darken wings”. Next, right click on the newly created layer and then click on “Create Clipping Mask”. Activate the Brush tool (B) and then input the following:

  • Brush size: 175px
  • Hardness: 0%
  • Opacity: 15%
  • Flow: 100%
  • #: 000000

Zoom up to 50%. Now, let’s paint:

Step 20

In this step, we will be creating the woman who is bewildered by the holy sight upon her. To start, open the image “394 look up” by Wolfcatstock. Once open, activate the Polygonal Lasso Tool (L) and then create a selection area around the girl.

Step 21

Once you’ve done that, activate the Move tool (V) and drag the selected girl to our canvas. Put her above all the layers that we’ve created. Move and position her as shown below:

Step 22

Now, rename this layer to “other woman”. Next, we will put her on one of the steps of the stairs and in order to make the perspective look realistic we would have to erase her feet. To do that, activate the Rectangular Marquee Tool (M).

Step 24

Now, we would need to make the other woman blend with the depth of field of the background. Therefore we would need to blur her a little, to do that, make sure that the other woman layer is selected and then go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur and once it opens, set the radius to 1 pixel.

Make sure that this new layer is above the “other woman” layer. Once you’re done, right click on this newly created layer and then click on “Create Clipping Mask”. Next, activate the Brush tool (B) and then input the following:

  • Brush size: 900px
  • Hardness: 0%
  • Opacity: 15%

Step 26

Now that we’re done, let’s group all the layers that we’ve created since Step 3. Name this group as “People”. Now, we will create the heavenly light from above. To start, create a new layer (Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + N) above all the layers and groups that we’ve made and then name it “heavenly light”. Next, activate the Brush tool (B) and input the following:

  • Brush size: 2200px
  • Hardness: 0%
  • Opacity: 15%
  • Flow: 100%
