Step 10

You should achieve similar results to mine if you painted accurately. Now pay attention to the red line surrounding the model. It's indicating how we're going to shade her to make her body and clothes blend with the background better. So go to Layers Palette, create new layer above "model" and hit Ctrl+Alt+G, this will create a Clipping Mask (and it should look like you see in the preview below).

Step 11

Set your brush options as shown below and reduce the Flow option of brush to 5%. Next, pick #572e16 color and paint on the "shading" layer as indicated in previous step. Do it along the suggested red line and trust your own taste of where to add more and where less.

Step 12

Great! Look at the comparison, the light edges completely disappeared now.

Step 13

Now go to Layers Palette, make sure you're on the "shading" layer (the last one created as Clipping Mask). Add Curves adjustment layer on the top, select it and hit Ctrl+Alt+G (Clipping Mask). Then grab Paint Bucket (G), pick black color and fill Curves layer mask with black (1st image below). Next, as indicated in the second image below, grab soft brush (with the same settings as in step 11). Then use white color and paint over the layer mask as indicated with green color. The basic idea is to enhance the shadows and blend the character more to the background. The next images show you how your layer mask should look after painting and the result of painting over Curves adjustment layer mask.

Step 14

Now create another new layer above Curves, use Clipping Mask as previously. Change its Blending Mode to Multiply. Next grab Brush Tool (B) with the same settings as in step 11, and paint using #dac5b5 color in spots indicated below. Do not pay attention on the selection, I just used it to show you where to enhance the shadows, you don't need to create that.

Step 15

OK, now same here. Create another new layer above and use Clipping Mask again (Ctrl+Alt+G). Change its Blending Mode to Soft Light this time and pick #f7e1cf for color. Use the same brush settings as previously and paint in spots indicated with green below. The second image below is result of a proper painting.

Step 16

Next, go to the very bottom of Layers Palette and create new layer above the black background layer. Grab Brush Tool(B) with the same soft settings as previously (step 11). Use #301a10 color and paint a little bit in the center of the image.

Step 17

Repeat the same process on new layer and this time paint with #774322. Make sure you're spreading this background light wider.

Step 18

Repeat the same process again, now with #d8a883 color. You should get something similar to what you can see below. In the second image below is a fast preview of the Layers Palette.

Step 19

OK, now let's create some more environment and blend the model more. To do that you're going to need to adjust your brush settings as you see below. It was the most efficient one for me, play with those settings if you won't be satisfied with your results.

Step 20

Moving further, go to the top of Layers Palette and create a new layer above all. I assume you already have your Brush Tool (B) selected, so now just pick #180d07 color and simply use mouse to paint as indicated with red arrows.

Step 21

Create new layer above, change it's Blending Mode to Multiply and repeat step 20. Paint over the same spots and make the blending/shading even stronger.

  1. Can't download the "PSD Light Effects.zip | 22.16 MB (Download from Website)" as it just says "404 Page not found"

    :(

  2. Bonjour W.P.
    C'est vraiment très joli et je vous félicite !
    J'essaye de traduire et je le fais, encore merci et si je me trompe, je peux regarder votre .psd, c'est gentil à vous !

  3. Step 7

    Select the “model” layer and hit Ctrl+Alt+R (Refine Edge).

    Output will create another layer with the settings below applied, so you can just basically delete or just turn off the previous layer. It’s up to you.

    Step 9

    Grab Brush Tool (B), set it all the way to 100%, but decrease the Spacing to 1% and check the Smoothing option. Again use black color for painting and go to Layer Mask of the “model” layer. Model layer???????????????????????????

    In Step 7 you say delete previous layer (layer "model") because we have another layer ("model copy").

    Step 10

    You should achieve similar results to mine if you painted accurately. Now pay attention to the red line surrounding the model. It’s indicating how we’re going to shade her to make her body and clothes blend with the background better. So go to Layers Palette, create new layer above “model” and hit Ctrl+Alt+G, this will create a Clipping Mask (and it should look like you see in the preview below). Above "model" layer? Again???????????

    Dude, WTF?????????

  4. This really is a awesome tutorial, im gonna follow it step by step this afternoon. Looking forward to see similair results

  5. Wojciech Pijecki (your name, yes?)

    Thank you so much, a truly great work, and in my opinion just enough info to be able to do it yourself if you wanted to. I especially liked the chiffon-"trick" and the attention to detail in the little "planets" at the end.

    Now for agnes b and photogabe above:

    I really can't believe how inpolite you are being. From what I can see he only skips the most basic stuff. If you look at the first image (end result) you should be able to see that this tutorial will require some beforehand knowledge. To be fair, you are both somewhat constructive in your critisism, but there is really no excuse for that tone of voice.

    1. yes... it did... there is a next page button which i think you didn't see lol

  6. uaua auauauauauusdhat ushdhauusgdhahdgiasdga gidai dgaid is like that the instruction.. your mind and our mind are different, you should be more thourough and use more commond words than intelectual ones, basic stuff in public communication are crutial.. like kindergarden languages... is better to detailed that too confusing..
