In the previous part of the tutorial, we learnt the use of pen tool while making effective use of Gassian Blur along with spiral brushes. We also learnt how to insert feathers on and around model’s neck so that the evil look of the overall photo gets completed.

In this final part (part 3) of the tutorial we’ll learn how to insert a crow on the hairs of the model. We’ll also learn how to create an effect as if crow is coming out from the model’s hair.

Step 1

Create a new layer (Layer 24) on top of other layers. Open your crow stock and separate a crow. Now place it besides the model’s ear just by the hair line.
