Default Dream Blend - A graphic tutorial by Energie - For medium and advanced graphic makers - Mostly Photoshop, but works on GIMP

Hello guys! Click the image to open in full size.
This is a Blend tutorial.
Title says pretty much everything.

So, today, we'll be making this blend:

Click the image to open in full size.


Honestly, it's pretty easy.

So let's start by the resources!

Cloud texture 1

Cloud texture 2

Castle Stock

Lily Collins Photoshoot

Background Texture

Moon Stock

Nebula Stock

Rose Stock



That's all our resources
Click the image to open in full size.

Now, let's start
Click the image to open in full size.

Step 1

Open up a 800x600 canvas on Photoshop (or whatever you use). Take the background texture and paste it in. Take Cloud Texture 1 and et this layer on Overlay 75%.
Click the image to open in full size.


Step 2

Now, create a new transparent layer, take a big soft round brush scaled to something like 200, and paint a big circle with the color #ffff00 in the middle. Paint a little bit in the corners, and set the layer to Soft Light 100%.
Click the image to open in full size.


Step 3

Take the Castle Stock, and paste it somewhere between the left top corner and the middle. With a soft round eraser, erase the corners so it kinda blends in. Set the layer to Multiply 100%.
Click the image to open in full size.


Step 4

Take the Nebula Stock and paste it on your blend. Resize it and erase the corners so it blends in. Set the layer on Screen 100%. I placed it near my castle stock.
Click the image to open in full size.



Step 5

Woo hoo! One of my favorite parts: the model. But the longest step as well xD Open up your photoshoot and take the sitting Lily Collins in the green dress (or the model you decided to use). You don't need to resize that picture, it's already the good size. Take the pen tool (also known as paths tool) or the free select tool (also know as lasso tool). Zoom your canvas to 300% (or more) and make small paths. Feather by 3. Cut the background out. Do the same with the other picture, but with the other picture, you'll need to resize it and duplicate the layer. Place the medium sized model in front of the biggest model pic, and the small one, on her head. If it doesn't look really nice in the bottom, it isn't really important because we're going to add some clouds there anyway. <3
Click the image to open in full size.


Step 6

So yeah, as I said at the end of Set 5, we're going to add some clouds at the bottom. Take Cloud Texture 1 and paste it.
Click the image to open in full size.


Step 7

Woot, almost finished with the base! Now, just take the Rose Stock and paste it next to the model pictures. Erase the background with a big soft round brush. I like soft blending for stocks Click the image to open in full size. And finally, take your Moon Stock and paste it on top, above the model's head. Set it on Screen 100% and erasing around the edges isn't really necessary here.
Click the image to open in full size.


Step 8

Guess what? Our base is finished! Now, it's time for the text.
This isn't exactly a step lol...
But I used the font Respective (Slanted) for the big text, and Myriad Pro for the small text.
This is how my graphic looks like without the coloring:
Click the image to open in full size.


Step 9

YAY! Coloring! One of my favorite steps as well Click the image to open in full size.
If you use GIMP, I'm not sure if you can do this, because you need Selective Coloring, but you can always skip the Selective Coloring step and just use Color Balance.
So here is what I did for the coloring:

COLOR BALANCE 1

Shadows:
0
-30
0

Midtones:

+58
-30
-23

Highlights:

+3
0
-58

VIBRANCE 1

Vibrance: -21
Saturation: +8

SELECTIVE COLOR 1

Reds:
-6
+12
+17
+11

Yellows:

0
0
+62
0

Greens:

-100
+40
+100
0

Cyans:

+35
0
0
0

Blues:

-100
0
0
0

Magentas:

0
+17
+13
-17

Whites:

+100
+54
+30
-5

Neutrals:

-7
+3
+13
0

Blacks:

+13
+14
0
-5

GRADIENT MAP 1

#000051 to #fffb93
Set the Gradient Map layer to Screen 15%.

CREATE A NEW TRANSPARENT LAYER

Make a gradient (Black to Transparent) and stroke it up from the bottom. Do you understand? xD

COLOR BALANCE 2

Shadows:
+34
+1
-12

Midtones:

+33
-8
+26

Highlights:

+10
+8
-58

And voila! You're finished!

You should now have something like that:

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.

Good luck! <3


Tips:

-Try to experiment, using other colors, other stocks, other models, etc.
-Be creative! Don't just copy the whole tutorial.
-Have fun!

Heh heh I made mine like exactly the same as yours since I don't have any other pictures and text to use... But thanks so much!
Mine turned out a little different, probably because I used GIMP.

Do you have Photoshop CS3? I'd like to try this, but I'm a beginner. :/
