Step 6:


Some final refinement of the hair was done and the snow was added. I made the snow with a hard round brush set to scatter and shape dynamics. When I had an effect that I liked, I duplicated the snow layer and blurred it slightly, then set it to overlay at low opacity to give it a soft glow (Fig.07).

Step 7:


After some final touch-ups had been done to the face and hair, I saved a flattened version of the image (I always like to save my layers in case I need to edit the image later) and then reopened it in Photoshop for post-production (For me, my images are never really complete until I have done a bit of post-production on them). I then duplicated the image, applied the Gaussian Blur filter at a radius of about 6 pixels, and then set the layer to soft light at low opacity. I flattened the image, and created a new layer, which I filled with a suitable colour for the atmosphere, and then I set the layer to soft light. Flattening the layer again, I adjusted the image using the Brightness/Contrast tool (located under Adjustments in the Image tool list) until I achieved the desired effect (Fig.08). The last thing to do was to add the copyright text and it was finished!

I must say I had a lot of fun with this piece and I think I learnt quite a bit from it. I hope you enjoyed reading this "Making Of".
