Create a Magic Crystal Ball
Create again a new layer (Create new layer) where we’ll use the brushes out of the downloaded set Vector_Flower_Brushes_by_Yasny_chan and the color #476974. This new layer should be situated lower than the layer containing the circle and the hands (on the layers’ panel).
The layer’s parameters: Blending mode-Multiply
Create a new layer and use there the Rectangular Marquee Tool (M) to represent a cross element of white color. Firstly we’ll represent a line and then press SHIFT button while creating the second one with the same instrument. The marked zone will be filled with white color, applying the Paint Bucket Tool (G) for this operation. This layer needs to be placed lower than the hands’ layer, but above the ball’s layer:
Select for the layer containing the white cross the option Filter>Distort>Twirl
…and Filter>Blur>Motion Blur
Make a mouse click on the same layer on the bottom part of the layers’ panel on Add a Mask selection and select there the Brush Tool (B) of black color to erase the ball’s coming out parts of the ornament.
Select the next indicated parameters for the same layer: Blending mode-Overlay
Blending Options>Color Overlay
Make a copy of the recently made layer and select the Free Transform option to displace a little the copy to the right side and turn it around by its axe. Select different parameters this time, those demonstrated below: Blending Options>Color Overlay
Next we’ll try to represent several highlights on the ball, using this time the Ellipse Tool (U). This layer will be situated above the previous layers, but lower than the layer containing the human hands:
The layer’s parameters: Fill 0%, Blending Options>Gradient Overlay
Create a new layer and select the Elliptical Marquee Tool (M) to mark out that part of the circle which will be processed with the Paint Bucket Tool (G) and the color #89C5DF
Choose for this layer the selection from here: Filter>Blur>Motion Blur
Make a mouse click on the same layer on the lowest part of the layers’ panel on Add a Mask selection and then choose the Brush Tool (B) of black color to erase several zones, belonging to the hands and the ball.
The layer’s parameters: Blending mode-Screen
On the last stage we’ll represent a new layer (Create new layer) to apply there the standard brush of black color, with the Opacity of 20% to dark out the hands on their left and right sides.
