Looking at the balance of the whole piece, I’ll add more details to any elements that seem to be missing something, and adjust the colors.


[1] Cheshire Cat

I thought that the face was a little lacking in personality, so I’ll add a moustache.

I create a new layer and paint in the whiskers on the Cheshire Cat. I make a Cheshire Cat folder and move all the layers in here.


[2] Scattered cards

I’ll add outlines in colors that match with the overall color scheme.


① I drag the “scattered cards” folder onto the “New Raster Layer” icon on the layer palette to duplicate it.


② I select all the layers in the folder, then right-click and select [Merge selected layers] to merge the folder into a single layer.


③ I select the folder’s layer mask and drag it over the combined layer.


④ I select the layer and press the “Apply Mask to Layer” button on the [Layer] palette.


⑤ I move the created layer under the original folder and delete the duplicated folder.


⑥ I blur the layer by going to the [Filter] menu > [Blur] > [Gaussian blur].


⑦ I add a fill layer on top and set it to “Clip at layer below”. Then I move the layer into the cards folder.


I add some highlights where the light hits.


[3] Mushroom

Since there was only one type of mushroom, I changed the shape of the mushrooms in the background to add more variation.


[4] Jabberwocky

I blur and overlap the line art, then change the color of the lines.


I also add a pattern on the Jabberwocky’s wings. I use the same method as for the flags in the first half.

I create a checkered pattern and deform it according to the shape of the wings.

Then I fade out the pattern with the [Eraser] tool > [Soft] depending on the brightness of the surroundings.


I’ve now finished all the individual elements.
