Step 60

You can still see some holes i.e., transparent areas in the feather. Select the using the Lasso Tool. Fill the area with black.


Step 61

Bring the feather into the main file. Place it below the model layers.


Step 62

Here I am going to create something from scratch in Photoshop. To do it, create a new document. Take the Pen Tool, Select the Paths mode on the options bar. Draw a curvy shape. Hit Ctrl + Enter to convert it into a selection. Fill the selection with a solid color. You may like to create a shape layer instead of creating a path and turning it into a selection. Anyway, get the shape created.


We are going to rotate this shape several times. To do that, duplicate the layer and press Ctrl + T, set the registration point to the bottom left corner and rotate it. Press enter to confirm the transformation.


Step 63

Duplicate the second layer and go to Edit > Transform > Again. This will rotate the current layer with the previous transformation settings.


Step 64

Repeat the process until you have something like this.


Step 65

Once you done, select all the layers and press Ctrl + E to merge down all the layers together.


Step 66

Now convert it into a smart object.


Step 67

Finally make the way into Photoshop.


Step 68

Apply Color Overlay using the Layer Styles box.


Step 69

Add a balloon from the pack.


Step 70

Now switch back to Illustrator. Well don’t get turned off! Photoshop and Illustrator are really meant to work together. You can get more productive incorporating Illustrator into your design flow. We can use Illustrator to produce custom graphic elements like line drawings, shapes, blends and many different vector elements for our designs. Then we can combine them with our Photoshop compositions. It doesn’t take much time once get used to it.
Here we are trying to create a cloud using the Illustrator’s Ellipse Tool. Draw some ovals and circles. Select them all and combine them using the Pathfinder palette (Window > Pathfinder)


Step 71

Add swirls using the Swirl Tool. Click anywhere on the document. This will present a dialog box. Enter the below values. Finally draw some swirls. Align the swirls to the outline we created in the previous step. Rotate, resize according to the need. But make the edges meet perfectly with the outline shape.
