Create a Photo Manipulation of an Angel Holding a Torch

Create a Photo Manipulation of an Angel Holding a Torch
1) Using the Pen Tool (P) make an arc on the tombstone as shown.
16
2) Now select the Text Tool (T) and click on the arc to select the arc as the path of the text.
16-1
3) Now type in the text "SAVE EARTH". As you can see the text follows the shape of the arc while typing.
16-2
4) Open the Text Properties and reduce the spacing between the texts to -100 to get a perfect alignment.
16-3

Step 17

In this step we are going to work on the Text Properties to align the txt in desired shape and size. 1) Type in the text "SE" the short form of Save Earth.
17
2) With the text selected go to Text properties and select the 'Subscript' option to get the following result.
17-1
3) Keeping the text selected reduce the spacing between the letters to -25.
17-2

Step 18

In this step we are going to create a carver inscription effect on the tombstone using the text we just created. 1) Select a mask in the shape of the shape of the text and separate the selection into a new layer and name it as 'inscription'.
18
2) With the inscription layer selected reduce the Exposure to -0.24 and set the Gamma Correction to 0.50.
18-1
3) To create the shadow within the inscription duplicate the tombstone layer and convert it into a silhouette using the Levels.
18-2
4) Then place the shadow layer in between the Tombstone and the Inscription layers and move it slightly towards the left as shown.
18-3
5) With the shadow layer selected go to Filter>Blur>Gaussian Blur and set the Gaussian Blur Radius to 3.0px.
18-4

Step 19

As the scene is focused on the main character the objects closer to the scene have to be blurred in order to maintain the Depth Of Field (DOF). -Merge all the Tombstone layers and go to Filters>Blur>Gaussian Blur and add a Gaussian Blur of Radius 4px.
19

Step 20

Now by using the Fog Brush paint the fog as shown using black color. This black fog represents the toxic that is destroying the nature.
20

Step 21

1) Using the technique used in step 11 cut the Dead Tree 2 from its background into a new layer.
21
2) Now place the dead branches as shown on the left side of the scene.
21-1
3) Assuming the branches being near the scene add a Gaussian Blur of Radius 6.1px to maintain the DOF.
21-2
4) Similarly add few more dead branches in the scene as shown.
21-3

Step 22

In this step we are going to work with the Adjustment Layer to color correct the whole scene. 1) Create and Exposure Adjustment layer on the top of all the layers and set the Gamma Correction to 0.81.
22
2) Similarly open the Curves Adjustment layer on the top of Exposure layer and set the Curves as shown.
22-1
3) Now create an Adjustment Layer of Hue/Saturation and set the Saturation level to -23.
22-2

Step 23

In this step we are going to create the fire on the log that the woman is holding. 1) Import the image of the Fire 1 on to the working canvas and place it as shown. Then set the Blending Mode of the layer to Screen.
23
23-1
2) Similarly add the Roaring bonfire to the previously created fire as shown.
23-2
3) Now add another image of the raging fire as shown at the ignition point of the log.
23-3

Step 24

: In this step we are going to create the glow to the fire to make it more believable.
