Scene synthesis, use PS to synthesize a dreamy two-dimensional scene – photo synthesis

This tutorial uses PS to synthesize a dreamy two-dimensional scene. It uses a lot of materials, but the materials are not the key. The key is that we learn the method through the tutorial. The key point of the scene is creativity. What the students see The great scenes are all integrated with the author’s imagination and creativity. When we are learning, we should also create according to the ideas. Let’s learn through the tutorial together.

Operation steps:

1. Start by building a basic scene

1. Create a new 2000 x 1286 px document in photoshop using the given parameters: (This is an exercise so please determine the size of your work based on the size of your material and other factors)

2. Open the sky image and use the Move Tool (v) to drag it onto the white canvas. Convert this layer to a Smart Object /wp-content/uploads/2024/03/15/pgfbjtxe3zc

Scene synthesis, use PS to synthesize a dreamy two-dimensional scene_www.16xx8.com

3. Go to Blur > Gaussian Blur and set the Radius to 6 px. This step is to separate the background and main elements, not to increase depth of field.

Scene synthesis, use PS to synthesize a dreamy two-dimensional scene_www.16xx8.com

4. Select the layer (remember to clip to the sky) > New Adjustment Layer > Color Balance to change the color of the sky. Change the midtone value.

8. Apply a 4px Gaussian Blur to this layer to make the softness of the mountain match the existing sky.

Scene synthesis, use PS to synthesize a dreamy two-dimensional scene_www.16xx8.com

9. Create a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer and set it to “Clipping Mask”. Change the value of red. The parameters are as shown below.

Scene synthesis, use PS to synthesize a dreamy two-dimensional scene_www.16xx8.com

10. Add a Curves adjustment layer (set it as Clipping Mask) to lighten the mountain and the lower part of the sky. On this layer mask, use a soft black brush to erase the lower left corner of these areas below so that they won’t be too bright after applying this adjustment layer.

Scene synthesis, use PS to synthesize a dreamy two-dimensional scene_www.16xx8.com

11. To change the position of the light (my goal is to brighten it), please…�Create a new layer on top of the other layers and use a soft brush with the color #ffafb8 to paint in the middle right position of the sky. Change this layer mode to “Overlay 100%” and add a mask to this layer. Use a soft brush to paint the lower areas of light.

Scene synthesis, use PS to synthesize a dreamy two-dimensional scene_www.16xx8.com

2. Add a tower to the scene

1. Choose a tower with a suitable angle. This is the angle I chose.

Scene synthesis, use PS to synthesize a dreamy two-dimensional scene_www.16xx8.com

2. Place the tower on the left side of the main canvas, and flip it horizontally to adapt to the direction of the light on the right (“Edit” > “Transform” Flip horizontally)

Scene synthesis, use PS to synthesize a dreamy two-dimensional scene_www.16xx8.com

3. Create a new Curves adjustment layer and make the left side of the tower darker since it is in the shadow area. Add a mask on this layer (generally it comes with a mask, so just apply it directly, no need to add it, it is masked), and use a brush on the right side to apply it to maintain its brightness.

Scene synthesis, use PS to synthesize a dreamy two-dimensional scene_www.16xx8.com

4. Create a new Curves adjustment layer to let more light illuminate the right side. Use the brush to paint on the darker areas on the left so that they are not lit by this adjustment layer.

7. Create a new layer on top of the layers and paint on the top of the tree using a soft brush with the color #efe29c and an opacity of about 40-50%. Change this layer mode to “100% Overlay”.

8. Open the Tree 3 image and use the Polygonal Lasso Tool to select the tree on the left and drag it to the right of the main canvas. Flip it horizontally and use the Free Transform Tool (Control-T) with Distort mode to adjust the shape of the tree.

9. Apply a 7 px Gaussian Blur to this tree layer. A larger blur radius helps increase the depth of field in a scene.

16. Add a Curves adjustment layer to lighten the front of the tree. On the layer mask, paint on the shadow details to maintain their contrast.

17. Create a new layer, change the mode to “100% Overlay”, and fill it with 50% gray. Use the Burn tool to make certain details in dark areas darker.

6. Add characters to the scene

1. Cut out the character, place her in the center of the bridge, and flip her horizontally.

2. Go to Edit > Override Transformation and make the character raise its head.

3. Return to the original character image, and select her cloak, then add it to the character in the working document. Use Free Transform to adjust the cape and match it to the character.

4. Add a mask to this layer to delete the bottom part of the character’s feet.

5. Use the Dodge and Burn tools on each of these layers to apply light, shadow and detail to the character and cape. (Before doing this, follow the previous steps to create a neutral gray/wp-content/uploads/2024/03/15/dwyw4aghob4 layer).

6. Create a group for the character layer and add a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer to desaturate the character.

8. Use the Curves adjustment layer to enhance the highlights in front of the character. Paint on the back side so that it won’t be lit by this adjustment layer.

7. Add atmosphere to the scene

1. Open the leaf image. Take the first leaf (from the left) and add it to the main canvas, then ctrl-t, then select the top switch between Free Mode and Transform Mode to make adjustments to the leaves.

2. Take different leaves, add them around the characters, and twist them into different forms.

3. Add more leaves around the canvas and apply the Gaussian Blur filter to these leaves. Set the Blur Radius from 2 to 12 px to increase the depth of field effect of the scene. For larger leaves on the edges, use a larger blur radius.

4. Create a group for the leaves layer and use a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer to change the color of the leaves.

5. Add a Color Balance adjustment layer to bring a yellow light to the leaves.

8. Make the final touches

1. Create a “Color Balance” adjustment layer on top of the other layers and change the “Midtones” value. (You can also directly merge a new picture for individual adjustments).

2. Add a photo filter adjustment layer and select the color #f2eb83.

3. Add an optional color adjustment layer and change the parameters for red, yellow, and magenta. On the layer mask, paint in the upper left corner of the scene to reduce the red effect there.
