Make one stamp for a right-wing, and one for the left.

Since our figure is not sitting straight, we made separate layers for each wing and after applying the second one, we pressed Ctrl + T to transform the layer freely, and rotated it a bit, as shown on the pic below

This is our result so far…

And these parameters for RED channels. We are looking to create a mysterious atmosphere with dark yet not dull colors, therefore colorizing the entire canvas will not look good.

Now your canvas has a nice, blue-green hue…

Apply omni spotlight once again, the same position as before (center spot in the center of the sun), using a light blue color.

Dark Fantasy Art Photoshop tutorial – Fairy and Sunset Landscap

  1. wow thank you very much, i love these kind of tutorials, stuff like this is what makes people (think) about there designs and do there own creative work, thank you again

  2. this was very nice.
    i gave it a tried, but
    my pictures didn’t
    turn out as nice.

    love the tut though

  3. @mystika_d
    Same here, but I didn’t really find any good pictures to work with.
    I’ll get back to this later when I’ve found some pictures.

    1. I don’t know if someone answered your question, but I think you need to remember to “feather” your selection. this keeps it from having a cut-out look. you do this by using: Select>Modify>Feather (usually only 1 or 2 pixels settings)

      this will make it blend into the background better. I hope this helps.

  4. ^^Thank you very much to both of you

    Ya i dont like “copying” tutorials exactly, i just pretty much read it over a few times, then close the page…and try to do my own design of it and see what happens… and thats what i came up with…

    P.S. Thank you for the compliment to about the shadow, i thought it brought out the “realness” of the picture alot better

  5. considering that there’s only 2 of us who posted our work, you’re then referring to me. Well moderator, if you are moderating you’ll see that I copy the work first to see if I can do it, then I post my own work later. If you check the previous Fantasy Art tutorial. Considering I did this at 2am, I didnt have time to do my own. so yeah.

  6. providence, if you read what he said , he said its the most original “So far”, which means there will probably be alot more designs and probably even better ones shown…so ya.. i wouldnt take offense to it, he didnt mean nethign bad buy it towards you or neone else…

    Good luck with the next project you plan on doing

  7. Providence,
    Let me apologize on moderators behalf, i dont think it was ment in that way, only the words sometimes look kinda harsh….
    It was for sure not a reference to your work, which looks good also…and I think Lorelei will agree with me on that.

  8. Yeah it’s v.good, but isn’t the shadow at the wrong side? The light is coming from the distance and the shadow is in the opposite side to where it should be? V.creative design just wondered if it’s only me that thinks that

  9. hmm, well i guess it could depend on the way you look at it…the sun could be really in straight but the angle of the picture it showing it from the side….or…and sun could be higher or lower also, making the shadow angle in many different ways though, lol…

    i dk, i personally thought it looked cool right there..

    thank you for the interest about it though, but ya, definitely just depends on the way you look at it…as you see, i never go buy what the eyes can see…

    i like to “manipualte it” even more…so that sun could be anywhere in the pic, but looking at in a different angle would make the shadow also seem in a different place..

    sry if i confused u, i just think differently than most people lol..

  10. Lol i wasn’t slating it as it’s better than what i can do i just thought i’d got the physics wrong, i’m attempting one now but can’t find good enough sources

  11. Since I enjoyed the other tutorial so much, I had to try this one out too.

    Not quite to the same standard as the tut but I’m pleased with the end result.

  12. Good evening, people. I just registered because I’m in theprocess of self-learning some Photoshop and I liked this page very much. I hope to learn a bit hehe.
    So, first try at tut! the result is here http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a10…Fairy-Moon.jpg
    (I didnt want to post the full sized one here in case it was too heavy, instead I linked to it)
    So, see you all around.

  13. Wow….Nighthawk….a really stunning result!!!

    And welcome here…hehe….hope to see more of your works!!

  14. MadMike from constanta (your sure it isnt constantza??…. )

    Great outcome…well i do have a comment on the right wing.
    I would place the girl a bit more to the left so that the wing is shown a bit better,but besides that great work!!!

    ps..if constantza…rumania…black sea…where you have to pay to get on the beach (at least that was 10 years ago)…

  15. I was just wondering;

    Where might I find the picture of the sky/horizon? I can’t seem to find one that will suffice anywhere.
