Step 24

Next, we will make this floor blend well with the tortoise shelter by adding shadows on the inside. To start, create a new layer (Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + N) above the “floor” layer and name it “darken inside”. Right click on this layer from the layer window and then click on the “Create Clipping Mask” option from the contextual menu.

Activate the Brush tool (B) and then input the following values:

  • Brush size: 300px
  • Hardness: 0%
  • Opacity: 50%
  • Flow: 100%
  • #: 000000

Now, let’s start painting:

Step 25

Now, we will be creating the shadow of the tortoise shelter.

To start, let’s create a new layer (Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + N) and name it “shadow”. Put this layer below the “floor” layer so that the brush paint would just be shown below the tortoise shelter.

Activate the Brush tool (B) and input the following values:

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

Note: To change the zoom level, simply change the zoom values at the Navigator window. See image below:

Step 26

Next, let’s create another layer (Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + N) above this layer and name it “shadow 2”. Activate the Brush tool (B) and input the following:

  • Brush size: 40px
  • Hardness: 0%
  • Opacity: 50%
  • Flow: 100%
  • #: 000000
  • Zoom level: 100%

Create another layer again (Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + N) and name it “shadow 3”. Activate the Brush tool (B) and input the following:

  • Brush size: 20px
  • Hardness: 0%
  • Opacity: 100%
  • Flow: 100%
  • #: 000000
  • Zoom level: 100%

Paint here:

Step 27

Create another layer (Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + N) but this time, name it “shadow 4”. Activate the Brush tool (B) and input the following:

  • Brush size: 300px
  • Hardness: 0%
  • Opacity: 50%
  • Flow: 100%
  • #: 000000
  • Zoom level: 100%

For our last shadow layer, name it “shadow 5”. Activate the Brush tool (B) and input the following:

  • Brush size: 500px
  • Hardness: 0%
  • Opacity: 15%
  • Flow: 100%
  • #: 000000
  • Zoom level: 100%
