Step 33

Continue adding leaves and bunches of leaves by duplicating the group (drag and drop onto new layer icon). You can open the group and hide some leaves to vary the bunch sizes. You can also resize to vary leaf sizes.

Step 34

Change your brush size to 3 and on a new layer (name ‘Twist’) with your fore color still at #77aa01, draw a large loopy figure as shown:

Step 35

Right-click the layer and click paste layer style (this will apply the same settings as the vine), then resize and place on vine as shown:
Duplicate and place in 3 more places: one on each end of each vine. Now select vines and twise layers and drag them all into a group. Call it ‘Vines 1’.

Step 36

Open up your berry window as it’s time to add the berries! Click once on the group name ‘Berry’, hit V on your keyboard, and then click and drag your berry onto your jungle scene. You’ll definitely need to size it down! Once it’s a considerably size, place it on the lowest vine, being sure to connect the stem with the vine:

Step 37

Merge the berry group by right-clicking and selecting merge group. Then, hold down Ctrl and click on layer thumbnail to select the contents. Make a new layer then move it directly beneath this layer. Hit D to change colors back to default then fill selection with black. Press Ctrl +D to deselect then head over to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur and enter a radius of 3.5 pixels. Finally, hold Ctrl and click on berry layer, then drag and drop onto new layer icon to duplicate. Hit V, then move your new twin berry to the right of the upper vine:

Step 38

Now it’s time for us to add the letters. Hit D then X to change the fore color to white. Hit T to select the type tool then click in the center. Using Tw Cen MT Condensed Extra Bold, type JUNGLE:

Step 39

Duplicate the layer (Ctrl + J) twice. Change the color of the lowest layer (the original JUNGLE) to #0e1a03, then right-click and rasterize them all. Hide the two top layers leaving only the dark green layer apparent. Using the Gaussian blur, blur the word using a 1.7 radius.

Step 40

Put the eye back next to the JUNGLE copy (the layer directly above the green JUNGLE) and then go to Filter > Blur > Motion Blur and enter a value of 68 for the distance. Leave the angle at 90.

Step 41

Now show the upmost layer by putting the eye back next to it. Double click on the layer and apply the following settings:
  • Drop Shadow: Opacity: 75 – Angle: -90 – Distance: 0 – Spread: 0 – Size: 6
  • Inner Shadow: Opacity: 75 – Angle: -90 – Distance: 5 – Choke: 0 – Size: 9
  • Inner Glow: Blend Mode: Hard Light – Opacity: 75 – Color: a6c439 – Technique: Softer – Source: Edge – Choke: 0 – Size: 9
  • Stroke: Size: 1 – Position: Outside – Color: 202b0e

Step 42

Now duplicate ‘Vines 1’ group, right-click and merge it then hit V and move it up over the word jungle:

Step 43

Here is a part that we have to be extra careful when working on. Select the erase tool and set the size to 7px. We want to erase specific parts of the vine to create and entangled look, so, moving slowly and carefully, erase the following parts:
