How to Create a Magical Town in the Clouds Using Photoshop
  • Brush size: 300px
  • Hardness: 0%
  • Opacity: 100%
  • Flow: 100%
We will need to erase the head and body of the whale. Now, let’s get to it!
The result should be similar to the following:
Group this layer and rename this group to “Whale”.

Step 6: Create the Windmill

In this step, we will be adding the windmill. Let’s start by opening shoofly-stock’s “windmill 4”. Once opened, activate the Move tool (V) and then drag this whole image to our canvas, put this layer on top of the “whale” group. This is a PNG file, and its background is transparent, that means it has no background - just the windmill. So after moving it to our canvas, you’d only see the windmill. Rename this layer to “windmill”. Activate the Transform tool (Ctrl/Cmd + T) and resize the windmill layer as shown below:
Next, activate the Transform tool (Ctrl/Cmd + T) once again and right click on the canvas to bring out the contextual menu. Once the menu shows, click on “Flip Horizontal”. The result:
Next, drag the “windmill” to the position shown below:
Next, activate the Eraser tool (E) because we’re going to make this “windmill” blend with the rest of the images. Now, input the following:
  • Brush size: 300px
  • Hardness: 0%
  • Opacity: 100%
  • Flow: 100%
After that, change the Opacity and Fill of the “windmill” layer to the following:
  • Opacity: 50%
  • Fill: 50%
Group this layer and rename it to “Windmill”.

Step 7: Add textures

Now, we’re going to add some textures to our image. Let’s start by opening “Texture 119” by Sirius_sdz. Once open, activate the Move tool (V) and drag this to our canvas. Rename this layer to “Texture 1”. See image below:
The result:
Next, let’s change the Blending mode and the Opacity of “Texture 1” to the following:
  • Blending Mode: Screen
  • Opacity: 100%
The result:
Next, let’s add “Paper Texture 1” by Wojtar Stock. Move this texture to our canvas using the Move tool (V) and rename it to “Texture 2”. Put this layer above “Texture 1” and position this layer as shown below:
Activate the Transform tool (Ctrl/Cmd + T) and resize “Texture 2” as shown on the image below:
Next, apply the following changes:
  • Blending Mode: Soft Light
  • Opacity: 40%
The result:
Now, group these textures and rename this group to “Texture”. STEP 8: Add the Bubbles Now, let’s make the image more magical by adding bubbles! To start, create a new layer (Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + N) above the “Texture” group and rename this layer to “Bubbles 1”. Now, activate the Brush tool (B) and open the brush set: “Bubble Brushes” by Hawksmont. To load them, simply, right click on our canvas through any layer and then click on the drop-down button as shown below:
This will prompt the contextual menu to pop up and once you see that, just click on Load Brushes.
You will now be prompted to this directory: Adobe Photoshop > Presets > Brushes so make sure that you have put the brushes within this folder. Now locate the brush set and click OK. Right click on the canvas again using your Brush tool (B) and now you’ll notice that you have the bubble brushes activated. Now, that you have that brush set active, choose the following brush:
With that brush selected, use the following settings before painting:
  • Brush size: 175px
  • Hardness: Defaulty
  • Opacity: 100%
  • Flow: 100%
  • #: ffffff
Paint in the bubbles as seen on the image below:
