Phew. That was some work but we also have some pleasing results. Group all the layers except the Background and the Moon layer and name the group Castles. Press Ctrl + 0 to bring all the scene into view and enjoy your work.

Now let’s make a horse fly. Open the file “Horse” and make a selection of the horse. Copy and paste it into our scene. Convert it to a smart object. Resize and position the horse as shown below.

Step 48

Open the file “Wings”. Copy and paste the wings into our document. Convert the imported layer to a smart object. Resize and position as shown below. Apply Inner and Outer glow to the wings like we did at step 45. Group all the horse related layers and name the group “Flying Horse”.

Step 50

Create a new layer and change the blending mode to Color Dodge. Clip this layer to the wizard layer. Paint some outlines around the wizard and his pupil with a round soft white brush. I am going to share with you a little secret. In order to have beautiful compositions perform this step for all your imported objects in most of your scenes. There are some objects for which this effect doesn’t work but for most of them outlining with white (or a light color) will make them stand out and give them a special glow.

Step 51

Create a new layer and change the blending mode to Overlay. Clip this layer to the wizard layer and paint with white and black some shadows and highlights on the wizard and his pupil.

Step 52

Open the file “Grass” and make a lower selection of the grass. Copy, paste into our scene, convert to smart object and add a layer mask. Import the Fern Brush and in the layer mask paint with black in order to randomly hide portions of the grass and making it look natural.

  2. in step 19, when adding a new curve layer, this affect the entire image, not just the road, what am i doing wrong?

  3. Step 7 doesn't work = (. It just turns the floating island into the exact color that you copy rather than actually blending the color with the island.
