Step 31

In this window, change the view of the “On White”. Be sure to check the box for “Smart Radius”, set Radius 1.0px. There is an icon on the left brush, take this brush and start painting on fabric where rayed background. Several times on one carry and you will be able to partially restore the fabric, but it’s not much wash, otherwise the form will be unattractive. Just swipe it where there are remnants of the background.

72

Add to that the layer mask and you remove all unnecessary background. It should you get.

73

Step 32

Create the shadow of the kettle and girl. To do this create a New Layer (Cmd/Ctrl+ Shift + N) and place it under the layer with the model.

74

Take a Brush Tool (B) and set there settings: Size: 900px, Hardness: 0%, Opacity: 40%, flow: 100%. Make shadow. Near of the kettle the shadow will be more, and the edges of model dress less.

75

Step 33

Now we need to make the right lighting model to fit her into the general atmosphere. Create a new layer use the short keys Cmd /Ctrl+ Shift + N.

59[1]

Use the Dodge Tool (O) for make light and Burn Tool (O) for shadow. Draw light and shade as shown in Figure. Note that I lightens it as out of the kettle is light. For example, a hand with a magic wand, edge of hat, neck and edge of kettle. This layer should be higher than the model layer. All the layers of the model I have combined into one group “Model”.

Step 34

Now the fun part! Now we will create a brush from the stars. In Photoshop are many brushes that few know (except for professionals). Now you find them and convert it! Go to Brush Presets. In the upper right corner there is an icon settings, click on it and then select the “Assorted Brushes”. In the window that appears, if you click Ok brush replaced, and if Append then brushes added to the Brush palette.

78

Now find a star brush in tab “Brush”. Set on the main tab Size: 40px, Spacing: 32%. So the stars are not so thick, which would make dispersal. Go to tab “Shape Dynamics” and set Size Jitter: 83%, Angle Jitter: 13%, Roundness Jitter: 56%, Minimum Roundness: 25%. This values represents the minimum size of the stars, slightly tilted and perspective stars.

79

Go to Scattering tab and set Scatter: 1000%, Count: 1. This parameter is responsible for the the scatter stars.

81

Tab Color Dynamics responsible for the color of the brush and change it. Set the Hue Jitter: 29%, Saturation Jitter: 16%, Brightness Jitter: 2%. So the stars will be a different color, brightness and saturation. In tab Transfer set Opacity Jitter: 70%, Flow Jitter: 89%. So the star will not be the same. This creates an effect of depth. Be sure to check the box on Smoothing to change stars color and “blended with the background”.

80

Save your created brush to return to it after.

81.1

Step 35

Brush is ready. Start working on the kettle and the stars. First you need to circle around the top of the kettle. Take a Magnetic Lasso Tool (L) and carefully circle the edge of the kettle. Create a new layer (Cmd /Ctrl+ Shift + N).

82

83

Take a Brush Tool (B) (Size: 600px, Hardness: 0%, Opacity: 100%, flow: 100%, Color – # 00bffc). Edge of the brush to make a point to create a small glow in the kettle. I added a layer mask and used a brush a little removed from the kettle.
