Daisy variations are created from source using liquify warp and smudge tools. Shaggy daisy is many layers which have been duplicated and rotated into a fuller flower.
step 2 of 8
Steps in creating container. First, polar coordinate is used on entire source photo, then shape is rounded off using eraser tool. Finally, filter/distort/glass tool gives the texture, and then color/adjustment tools get the desired color.
step 3 of 8
On a new, elongated canvas, a post is painted on container and 4 varied sizes of shaggy daisy design are put into place.
step 4 of 8
Daisies more like the source are placed individually on the base container. Background has been put in place with pattern layer and gradient layer over it. Here is the pattern layer used.
step 5 of 8
This is the liquify warped source which has been scaled and duplicated several times and is used as back layer behind the pattern and gradient layers. These top two layers are reduced in opacity to allow some of the back layer to show through
step 6 of 8
Small green leaves are added beneath the shaggy flower bunches, then wispy lines are added using brush tools. These are to add movement and to establish a line for following through the design.
step 7 of 8
Butterfly is drawn with brush tool, then color filled in. Lines are drawn into wings with a fine burn tool. Wings are adjusted different ways using liquify warp tool and edit/distort tools. Sideview butterfly has had one wing cut away and flipped.
step 8 of 8
Butterflies have been added, color changing some and scaling to different sizes, table is shadowed with burn tool, and flowers have final lights and shadows added using dodge and burn tools.
