My latest painting in Adobe Photoshop CC with Wacom Cintiq
How to create a winter scene in Adobe Photoshop CC using Adobe Stock images and a 3D object from PixelSquid.com
3D object I downloaded from PixelSquid
First of all I downloaded two images from Adobe Stock website. I downloaded those files as preview files and after I tried them out I licensed them directly within Adobe Photoshop CC:
Right Click on a image in your library panel you want to license > License Image
Double click on your licensed image (in the library panel)
To bring another file into your document from your library panel > Click on the image > Drag into your document
Using the Quick Selection Tool select Santa Claus and the reindeer? (don’t worry if your selection is not perfect. You will be able to fix it later on)
Select > Select and Mask
Change the View Mode to Onion Skin and Moon Transparency Slider all way to the right 100%. This way you will be able to see the background layer and make all the necessary corrections toyour initial selection right away.
Zoom In your document
Using the Brush Tool correct your selection (switch between “+” and “-” if needed to correct the selection)
After you are happy with your selection switch to the Refine Edge Brush Tool
Switch View Mode to Black and White
Using the Refine Edge Brush Tool clean up the edges of your selection.
After you are happy with your final selection change the Output Setting to New Layer with Layer Mask
Click on the Mask Icon (Santa Layer) > Gradient Tool with Black color
Correct the part between snow under the reindeer and background snow line (simply paint it out using gradient tool)
Previously I downloaded a 3D object from PixelSquid.com and now I will simply click on this object (snow) and object will be added to my document
Now I will rotate my 3D object, also will Switch to High Resolution and remove the Shadow
Resize your 3D object using the Free Transform tool
Delete the Hidden Layer from Layer Panel
Window > Adjustments
Color Lookup Adjustment
Adjustments > Curves
Adjustments > Brightness / Contrast
Make 3D object layer’s opacity = 67%
Now your image is ready
