Creating an arabian night using photoshop

How to study this subject

What youíll be creating

This photo manipulation is my vision on how the desert should look in a story: mysterious and welcoming. You will need Photoshop CS5 or newer to create this tutorial..


Step 1

Create a new document 3797◊2440 px. Using the Gradient Tool to create a nice gradient with #04243f as foreground color and #0e74d6 as background color.


Step 2

Create a new layer (Ctrl + Shift + N), set the foreground color to white and using the stars brush create some stars.


Step 3

Create a new layer and using white and white-orange draw a comet coming from above. Itís not that hard really, just draw with the white brush a couple of short diagonal lines and draw a loose circle at the end of those lines (head of the comet).


Step 4

Open the clouds image and choose Select> Color Range. Click with the marker once on a bright spot in the picture to select most of the white clouds. Click Ok. Press Ctrl + C to copy the selection and close the clouds document. Go back to our document and press Ctrl + V to paste. Rename the pasted layer Clouds to keep layers from cluttering. Right click the Clouds layer and choose Convert To Smart Object. Press Ctrl + T to enter Free Transform and resize the clouds as I did in the image below. Finally, set the blending mode of the layer to Lighten.


Step 5

Add a layer mask to the Clouds layer (Layer > Layer Mask > Reveal All). With a soft black brush mask the edges of the clouds so that they integrate flawlessly with the sky.


Step 6

Create a new layer and set the blending mode to Overlay. Choose #e37952 as foreground color and with a soft brush paint lightly in the area indicated below. Lower the opacity of the layer to 40-50 %. This will be the horizon diffuse light later when we will add the terrain. You can also group all the layers we created until now. To group layers select them by shift- clicking each and press Ctrl + G.


Step 7

Open the file Moon and using the Elliptical Marquee Tool select the moon. Copy (Ctrl + C) and paste (Ctrl + V) into our document. Right click on the pasted layer and choose Convert to Smart Object. Resize and position as I did in the image below.


Step 8

Double-click the moon layer to enter Advanced Blending Mode and apply a color overlay (#71a8e3) set to Overlay Blending Mode.


Step 9

Add a layer mask to the layer moon and using a round black soft brush mask the lower and the left side of the moon.


Step 10

Letís add some highlight to our moon. Create a new layer and add a layer mask (Layer > Layer Mask > Hide All). Ctrl- click on the moon layer to make a selection than press D to set the default colors. Finally, press Alt + Backspace to fill the selection with white. Click on the layer again to select it and with a white brush paint some highlights on the right and up side of the moon.



Step 11

Now letís create the terrain. Open file ďDesertĒ and using the quick selection tool select the terrain only (not the sky). Copy and paste the terrain into our document. As you already guess now you should right click the desert layer and convert it to a smart object. Resize it and position the terrain as shown below. If your selection was imperfect feel free to add a layer mask and mask the

unwanted bits.


Step 12

In this step and the following steps we will apply some adjustment layers to the desert layer in order to blend it better with our image. Usually almost any imported/pasted layer is often more saturated than the rest of the composition (not only in this case but in general) so letís add a Hue/Saturation Adjustment layer and tweak with the values. We notice that the terrain looks much better if we decrease slightly the saturation. But in order to apply the effect only to the terrain layer we must clip the Hue/Saturation to the Desert layer by Alt-clicking between the two ( and we will do so for the rest of the adjustment layers applied to the terrain). If you notice the a group called City and wonder why you donít have it donít worry about it, you will find out why in the future steps.




Step 13

Now letís color correct the terrain a bit. Add a curve adjustment layer and use the settings shown below. Clip this layer to the layer below (it should be clipped to a Hue/Saturation layer which in turn is clipping the desert layer). Lower the opacity to 32%.





Step 14

Now letís add some selective lighting. We will make the foreground part of the terrain darker. Add a curves adjustment layer and drag the curve down to darken. Click on the layer mask and with a black brush paint on the top part of the terrain to keep it untouched by the darkening effect. Lower the opacity until you achieve a pleasant effect (40%). Clip the layer to the layer below.
