How to Blend the Subject
In this next video, instructor Lewis Moorhead will show you how to blend the subject into her environment. Use Displacement Maps to achieve this by adding the lava to her body. Then incorporate more Adjustment Layers to balance the lighting for a realistic effect.
How to Create Lightning and Rock Brushes
Before we move on to the final lessons, we'll incorporate some lightning into the scene. First make a custom rock brush using the Polygonal Lasso Tool (L) and Layer Styles. Then use a premade Lightning Brush to add more intensity to the sky.
Finish this photo manipulation in the next lesson, where we'll learn how to create vibrant effects with filters and Adjustment Layers.
