step 5 of 14
First finger is isolated here by chopping tool, then rotated with edit/transform/rotate tool.
step 6 of 14
Finger with colored nail is chopped, removed from source photo, added to background ready to clean it and move into place.
step 7 of 14
Finger is rotated, scaled and distorted with tools in edit/transform mode.
step 8 of 14
Two fingers on left have been added (use alt key to make duplications from here on) ready to scale, rotate, or distort to fit over peppers on plant. Also, edit/transform/flip horizontal or vertical are needed from time to time to fill basket, etc.
step 9 of 14
Fingers are now in place for the pepper plant.
step 10 of 14
Colors are being adjusted often, working with shadows of plant as well as light source from sun. Nails have been mostly finished using the paintbrush tools.
step 11 of 14
Story wasn't complete with just fingers hanging on the bush, so I decided to add a basket where fingers had been harvested.
step 12 of 14
Fingers are now duplicated (using alt key) and added to basket. They also must be flipped with the edit/transform/horiz. flip tool, and/or rotated . Use layer tool to fit them behind/in front of others.
step 13 of 14
More fingers of different designs are duplicated and fit into basket.
step 14 of 14
More work is done on fingers, and green is added under pepper plant by using clone tool, and large leaf is chopped from one of the source photos and added to the ground.
