Create a surreal room in Photoshop

This is what we should have in the end.

To work we need:

Step 1. Create a new document with the following settings.
Width: 3000px
Height: 3000px
Resolution: 300 dpi
Color Mode: RGB Color; 8bit
Background Contents: Transparent

Step 2. Open image with sky. We will use it to create the walls of our room. Choose a tool Retangular marquee Tool (Rectangular selection) and highlight the sky without capturing the tops of the trees. Now press the V key and LPC drag the layer into our working paper. See picture below.

The image is large (8591x3912px). We need to resize it. Activate Rules (Ruler) by clicking Ctrl + R. Measurement line put on inches (inches). We need a guide. To do this, click on the ruler and paintwork and drag the line to the mark 5.3in (dm) as shown in the figure.

Click Ctrl + T for image transformation. Resize as shown.

Now we need to make a room perspective. Scale down the document Windows> Navigator (Window – Navigator) and set the 15%.

Tool Retangular marquee Tool (Rectangular selection) make a selection as shown.

Choose a tool Distort Tool (Distortion) of the transformation tools and distort, as shown in the figure.

Next, select the right side of the image and distort, as shown in the figure.

Step 3. Create a texture for the walls. Download 18 vintage tassels. Create a new layer and name it “Middle Wall”. Choose a tool Brush Tool (Brush). RMB select from the list a brush with a size of 1650px as shown in the picture.

Notice that the brush is in a horizontal position. We need it upright. To get started, install Opacity (Transparency) 100%. Brush color set # 494949 (Note. The color can be changed in the Set foreground color toolbar). See the settings below.

Apply the brush anywhere on the image. Click Ctrl + T and turn Rotate 900CW (Turn 900 clockwise). Place the brush on the middle wall. Your guide should be active. We need accuracy in everything. Transform the image as shown.

Now display horizontally Edit> Transform> Flip Horizontal (Editing – Transforming – Flip Horizontally). Install Opacity (Transparency) 25%.
To create a wall texture on the left, make a copy of the “Middle Wall” layer. Click Ctrl + T and flip horizontally Flip Horizontal (Flip horizontally). Name the layer “Left Wall”. We need to distort the brush image with the tool. Distort Tool (Distortion). Distort the texture as we did with the sky above. Set the opacity to 50%. See settings below.

Make a copy of the “Left Wall” layer and rename the layer to “Right Wall” with the tool Move Tool (Move) move to the right wall, pre-reflect horizontally. See below.

For convenience, you can combine layers with walls into a group. This will make room in the layers palette. To do this, run the command Layer> New> Group (Layer – New – Group) and name “Wall Texture”. Select all the desired layers and drag to this group.
Darken some parts of the walls to give them a contrast. Choose a tool Burn Tool (Dimmer) as shown.

Set it to the following values:
– Brush size: 900px
– Range (Range): Midtones (Mid Tones)
Exposure (Exposure): 35%

Carry out a dimmer as shown.

Step 4. For the floor we use the image of the storm sea. Open the file and use the tool and (Rectangular selection) to select the sea and drag it into the working document. Place the layer with the sea below all the layers. Transform it so that it looks like the floor of a room. See picture below.

Step 5. Add waves to the walls to make the sea look more realistic. Create a new layer. Call it “Wave 1”. Load a wave brush set and select a wave brush that is 600px in size. Press D to set default and background colors. Then press X to swap them. Set tool values Brush Tool(Brush).
– Brush Opacity (Brush Transparency): 100%
– Size: 600px (Default)
Apply the brush in the area shown.

Using the command Ctrl + T, rotate, move, stretch the brush image. You must level the wave with the floor, as shown.

Create a new layer for the new wave, name “Wave 2”. We will place it on the right side of the wall. There will be a total of 13 waves. Choose a tool Brush Tool (Brush). From the wave brush set, click on the 526px brush. Do not change the size of the brush. Place the wave brush on the right wall near Wave 1 brush. Using transformation, align it to the wall. Select Edit> Transform> Scale (Edit – Transform – Zoom) and drag the brush to the 8in mark on the vertical ruler. Unwanted waves can be removed with Eraser Tool(Eraser) (with Hardness settings: 0%, Opacity: 100%). See picture below.

Create a new layer. Name the “Wave 3”. Select a brush with a wave size of 461px. Use the default size and place the brush on the right wall on the line with the “Wave 2” layer (you can move it using the Move Tool (Move)). Do not forget to erase the extra waves. See picture below.

Now create a new layer “Wave 4”. Use the same brush that was used for Wave 3. See the picture below.

Place the waves on the left wall. Duplicate the “Wave 2” and “Wave 3” layers and move them to the left wall, reflecting horizontally Edit> Transform> Flip Horizontal (Editing – Transforming – Flip Horizontally). See picture below.

Step 6. It’s time to create splashes on the walls. Download a set of water brushes. Create a new layer “Wave 5”. Use the brush shown in the picture.

Change the brush size to 1411px and click on the “Wave 1” layer. Remove unnecessary parts of the wave with an eraser. The result is shown below.

Create a new layer “Wave 6”. Use the brush shown in the figure below.

Change the brush size to 1014px. Click on the copy of the “Wave 2” and “Wave 3” layers of the left wall with a brush. Choose a tool Distort Tool (Distortion) of the transform tools and distort the brush along the wall.

Create a new layer “Wave 7” and select the brush shown in the figure.

Use a brush size of 2500 px and apply it where shown in the image below.

Remember to remove unwanted waves.

Create a new layer “Wave 8” and select a brush from the wave brush set.

Position the brush as shown.

Apply the distortion to the “Wave 8” layer.

Erase unnecessary waves and your result should be like this.

Create another “Wave 9” layer and select the brush shown below.

Use the default brush size of 2500 px and place as shown.

Select Edit> Transform> Distort (Editing – Transforming – Distortion). We will distort the wave on the same principle as Wave 8. See below.

Erase unnecessary waves. See the picture below for what you should get.

Create a new layer “Wave 10” and select a brush as shown.

Do not change the size of the brush. Apply it in the center of the image. Click Ctrl + T and select Rotate 900 CW (Turn 900 clockwise). Resize and move to the right wall where Wave 9 is located. Apply distortion and align with the right wall. Make it the same size as Wave 9. The result is shown in the figure below.

Make a copy of the “Wave 10” layer, go Edit> Transform> Flip Horizontal (Editing – Transforming – Flip Horizontally). Tool MoveTool (Move) drag the wave from the right wall to the left.

Step 7. Now that the background is ready, we will deal with its objects. Open the image with the clock and circle it with the tool. Polygonal Lasso Tool (Polygonal lasso). See picture below.

When the clock is highlighted, we can transfer it to the document tool Move Tool (Move). Scale the clock. Can walk Burn (Dimmer) so that they look more impressive. See the placement of the clock in the picture below.

Create a new layer, place it under the clock layer and name it “Shadow of the Clock”. Let’s give a shadow to the clock to remove their plane and give depth. Use regular brush With 150px soft edges (recommended), 25% transparency. See the picture below.

Add a sailboat. Open the image and circle the sailboat with the tool. Polygonal Lasso Tool (Polygonal lasso). Drag it onto the document and place it above all layers, name it “Sailboat”. Run the command Image> Adjustments> Brightness / Contrast (Image – Correction – Brightness / Contrast) with settings:
Brightness: –25
Contrast: -39

Now flip horizontally. Using transformation, resize and position the sailboat as shown.

Now we will do as if the sailboat is floating on the waves. Click the “Sea” layer that is below all layers. Use the tool Clone stamp Tool (Stamp) with the following settings: brush size 70px, transparency 100%. Use the brush near the sailboat to give the effect of movement.

Step 8. Now the image is ready. But we need to make it more natural. First you need to add more saturation to the walls. Create a new “Shadow” layer. Place it under the “Sailboat” layer. Set a brush size of 1400px and a transparency of 15%. See picture below.

Create Gradient map (Gradient map) through the adjustment layer.

After you chose a gradient map, your entire image became black and white. We do not need this. Execute Blending mode (Layer blending modes) on Luminosity (Glow) with transparency 100%. The result is shown below.

Now make the image a little darker. We use curves. Click Create a New Adjustment Layer (Create a new adjustment layer) on the layers panel and set the following values:
Input: 137
Output: 122

The result should be like this.

Step 9. Now create a vignette effect. Create a new document. Ctrl + N with the same settings as in step 1, only set the background to white. Run the command Filter> Distort> Lens Correction (Filter – Distortion – Correction of distortion). Find Vignette (Vignette) and set the following values:
Vignette amount (Effect): –100
Midpoint: +50

Drag the created document onto your image above all layers and set the following parameters:
Blending mode (Overlay mode): Multiply (Multiply)
Transparency: 75%.

Bottom image got too dark. Will not work. Select eraser with settings:
Brush size: 1400px
Transparency: 50%

The figure below shows in which area you need to go through the tool.

Step 10. The image is ready, but you can improve it a little more. Increase saturation. Create Brightness / Contrast adjustment layer with settings:
Brightness: 0
Contrast (Contast): +7

Let’s create Color balance (Color balance) with settings:
-6; 0; -14

Create another gradient map and set the layer blending mode to glow, transparency 25%.

Create another layer Brightness / Contrast with settings:
Brightness: +5
Contrast: 0

Add some blue and yellow shades. Create a new one Color Balance adjustment layer (Color balance) with the following values:
-6; 0; –6

So that the image does not give a green tint, you can set the transparency to 70%.

Finally, increase the contrast to the white color. Create Brightness / Contrast adjustment layer with settings:
Brightness: 0
Contrast: +6

Step 11. You can sharpen the image. Filter> Sharpen> Smart Sharpen (Filter – Sharpness – “Smart” sharpness) and enter the following settings:
Amount (Effect): 125%
Radius: 1.0
Remove (Remove): Gaussian Blur
Check Accurate box (More precisely)

The image is ready. This is what you should get.
