How to Create a Surreal Gothic Artwork in Photoshop

step46

Makeup enchanced!

step47

Step 30

Looks like this so far.

step48

Step 31

Create a new layer on top of the model layer and grab a soft round brush. Paint the red areas with a greyish blue colour (#567190 is good, for example). Set the layer mode to Overlay.

step49

Blue eyes.

step50

Step32

Create another new layer and paint the shape of the lips with a greyish pink tone (#84675d). Then set the layer to Soft Light.

step51

Pretty pink doll lips.

step52

Step 33 (optional)

If you have a tablet, take a slightly darker colour (like #756259) and paint the jawline. It’s not an important step, but it helps to define the face.

step53

Step 34

Now go back to the model’s layer and select the skirt with the Marquee Tool.

step54

Go to Filter > Liquify and make the skirt more puffy by pulling it outwards.

step55

Puffy skirt.

step56

Step 35

Grab the Burn Tool, set it on low Exposure (20%) and burn the areas marked with red.

step57

Step 35

Go to the dress form layer (aka legs) and make it darker.

step58

Click anywhere on the area around the form with the Magic Wand tool (W).

step59

Go to Select > Modify > Expand. Expand by 1px, click OK. Hit Delete. Press Ctrl + D to release the selection.

step60

Legs darkened.

step61

Step 36

Go to the doll body layer. Go to Image > Adjustments > Replace Color and click on the dress so that the image in the black box turns partly white, bringing out the black areas. Move the sliders so that you get a bit different black hue.

step62

Colours are matching better now.

step63

Step 37

Go back to the legs layer and duplicate it. (Layer > Duplicate Layer).

step64

Go to Edit > Transform > Flip Vertical.

step65

Now move them to the bottom so that the ends meet and set layer opacity to 50%.

step66

Step 38

Take the other pattern and create this shape by duplicating the tiles and merging them together. Place the finished pattern on top of the model.

step67

Set layer mode to Multiply.

step68

Step 39

Go back to the model layer and click on the area around her with the Magic Wand Tool. Go back to the pattern layer. Hit Delete to get rid of excess pattern. Press Ctrl + D to release selection.

step69

Step 40

While still on the pattern layer, take a hard round eraser and erase the pattern from her sleeves and hands.

step70

Step 41

This is the dress with a nice pattern.

step71

I lowered the opacity to 65%.

step72

Step 42

Take this watch and reduce its size.

step73

Cut off the top with the eraser, pen tool, lasso… whichever you prefer.

step74

Watch without top.

step75

Go to Hue/Saturation, but this time select “Yellows” from the drop down menu and move the Saturation and Lightness sliders all the way to left. Then lower Vibrance by -50.

step76

Clock has now matching colours. However, it has a white border.

step77

Step 43

Like with the legs, select area around the clock, go to Selection > Expand, but this time expand by 2px. Hit Delete. Press Ctrl + D to release selection.

step78

No white borders!

step79

Add drop shadow to the clock to make it blend in better.

step80

Do the same with other clocks.

step81

Step 44

Go back to the wallpaper layer and select this area with the Marquee Tool.
