In this Photoshop Tutorial we will create a halloween atmospheric scene featuring a pretty witch setting in a fantasy mystic night. Follow through these steps in the tutorial to learn how to set lightning, sharpening an image, and some other essential techniques in doing photo manipulation.
In this early steps we will extract the model from its background. Open the model image in photoshop.
Then, take pen tool. Trace the model with the tool. When tracing is complete, the model will be surrounded by thin grey line meaning that the path is closed. right click on the path to show path command option box. Choose make path selection to change the path into selection. Hit Ctrl+Shift+I to inverse the selection and then hit Del to clean out the background:
Dont worry about the hair which is not selected very well. We need to correct it. Take rectangular marquee tool and create a rectangular shape on the hair. Then go to selection > color range. Click on the grey color of the hair background to sample the color to be selected. When the color range command option box shows up, the grey color change into white. Set fuzziness to 200. Hit ok. Finally, the grey background is selected, just hit Del to clean it out:
Next, we will prepare the main document for our photo manipulation. Create a new document (Ctrl+N) with size as shown in the screenshot:
Add the model to the document. Scale the size and arrange its position where needed:
In this step we will procceed to retouch the model's skin to make it softer. We will use smudge tool to do that. Please see below for the setting of the tool.
Here's what we need to do: firstly, smudge the arm of the model by stroking the tool gently on the arm. Try to vary the size of the brush used depending on the areas to be smudged. Then, continue to smudge the face areas, hair and the hat.
Here's the result i created. I am sure you can easily figure out which one the smudged model is.
Next, open one of the background stock in the document. Place the background behind the model. Scale its size and arrange it where needed. Mask the cloud part of the background to hide it. We will replace the cloud with the other one.
Now open the moon stock image. Place it behind the window background. Scale its size and arrange it in position as shown in the screenshot(1). Then, duplicate (Ctrl+J) the moon layer one time. Use the duplication image to cover the blank behind the window(2). Finally, mask the unneeded part of the moon image to make them blended well.
