Now continuing on with the theme lets make another color balance layer, this time however we will just adjust the shadows. So to start off with find yourself a nice picture of someone sitting, I went with one from shutter stock but you can get them from Deviantart and Sxc alike. Also keep in mind that the below color balances are for my figures and my scene, yours more than likely will need to be tweaked slightly but don’t worry experimentation is key to success!

Once you have created the layer you will get the same old color balance dialog you are so used to seeing. So, set yours up as mine is in the next few screen shots or adjust it to better fit your scene. My clouds now look like the below screen shot. Now we need to add even more color! so create a new layer and fill it with a light purple. set this new layer up as an overlay at 50%. Keep in mind that these are the percentages and color balance adjustments for my background, if you are using another one you may need to play around with the colors a bit! Now continuing on with the theme lets make another color balance layer, this time however we will just adjust the shadows. Once that is done we can create a photo filter layer, which like the color balance layers, are hidden away in the adjustment layers drop down. Set both of these up as mine are in the below screen shot. My scene now looks like the below screenshot. Now lets make another photo filter layer! This time set the layer up as an color layer at 45% opacity. Step 2: Making orb Now its time to get started on the creation of our orbs, for those of you who are fimilar with past tutorials this will be very simple. To create the orbs you will need a base texture, any old stone or concrete texture will do. I got mine from CGtextures and suggest you start your search there as well. once you have your texture making a perfect circle using your elliptical marquee and erase everything outside of the circle. Once that is done just burn one side up nice so it appears as If its shadowed. next make a selection around your orb and apply a sphererize filter, which can be found under filters > distort. Leave it at 100% both vertical and horizontal. Next just drop it into your scene directly above the background layer, so it is under all the color adjustment layers. Now using a soft eraser (300px soft edged) with an opacity of about 35% erase the bottom of your orb slightly so it appears as if its in the clouds. You could also apply a layer mask and do this if you like. Now just repeat the process and create a few more orbs. Place them all over the place, be sure to blur the distant orbs and reduce their opacity so it appears as if they are in the horizon amongst the clouds. step 3: People Now lets add in some people, to do this is very simple but it might take a few tweaks to get them to look right. So to start off with find yourself a nice picture of someone sitting, I went with one from shutter stock but you can get them from Deviantart and Sxc alike. Now you want to isolate out your figure, and drop it in to your scene right on top of the orb. You may need to burn/dodge the sides of your figure to match the lighting of your scene, if you do, remember to make a backup of the isolated stock! You don’t want to have to go isolating all over again! once you have dropped them in you may also need to apply some quick color corrections as I did, if you do remember to create a color balance layer and mask out everything but the figure! Also keep in mind that the below color balances are for my figures and my scene, yours more than likely will need to be tweaked slightly but don’t worry experimentation is key to success! Now we will stop working on the figures for a slight second, the scene whilst being wonderful, slightly bothers me. To correct this I created a new layer and drew some big lines of color. Blue for the highest point, pink for the middle section and yellow for the bottom. Once this was done I applied a Gaussian blur with a radius of 250px twice and set the layer up as overlay at %. This is not required but it was bothering me and why not just give it a try, you might like the end result! Now back on to our figures, they look great but there is something wrong with them as they are… They need a shadow!
