How to Create a Surreal Gothic Artwork in Photoshop

step82

Right-click and choose “Layer via Copy”, then flip vertically (just like with the legs).

step83

Set layer opacity to 35% for a slight reflection.

step84

Step 45

Paste the rabbit on a new separate layer and resize if needed to keep realistic proportions.

step85

Cut the rabbit out with the Pen Tool.

step86

This how it looks with the rabbit… time to blend it in.

step87

Step 46

Go to Hue/Saturation and make the yellow tones lighter by +100.

step88

Take the Burn Tool, but this time set the range to “Shadows” and click a few times around the eye to make it pop. Then take the Sponge Tool and choose “Saturate” from its drop-down menu. Click a few times on the eye.

step89

For the shadow, create a new layer under the rabbit and using a soft round brush with black colour, draw this shape. The larger your brush is, the smoother the edges of the shadow will be.

step90

Go back to bunny’s layer and reduce Vibrance by -50. Also add some Brightness (+15).

step91

step92

Step 47

Now the reflection. It has to be very subtle. Go to Layer > Duplicate Layer and make a copy of the bunny. Flip it vertically and place it under the white fluffy creature so that the noses touch.

step93

Go to Edit > Free Transform and then click the little arch that appears to enter the warping mode. Warp the reflection until the paws touch as well.

step94

Go back to the bunny layer and select the paw. Right-click and “Layer via Copy”.

step95

Flip it vertically and warp a little bit so that the paw on the reflection is flat. Then take a soft round eraser and blend the paw in.

step96

Darken the reflection’s stomach with the Burn Tool.

step97

Lower the reflection layer’s opacity to subtle 25%.

step98

Finally, add this Gradient Overlay.

step99

Step 48

With bunny!

step100

Step 49

Paste the wall texture on a separate layer right above the wallpaper layer. Resize it so that it fits the area.

step101

Texture is now set on Soft Light. I also desaturated it and set the Lightness to -15.

step102

With a slight reflection.

step103

Step 50

Finally, colours! This is the fun part. Use settings provided and you should have a nice blue-toned image.

step104

Final Result
