Lets start by opening the Apple image in photoshop.
Open the Eye image then select part of the Eye using Lasso Tool (L). After you select it, move it to our Apple image using Move Tool (V). Let’s name the Eye Image to Eye1. Place the Eye image on the left position in the apple.
Lets adjust the Eye1 layer more brighter. Go to Image>Adjustments>Curves. In Curves, adjust the Output to 139 and Input to 59. After that go to Image>Adjustments>Levels. In Levels, Adjust the Input levels to 57,1.22 and 248. Erase the sides using Erase Tool (E) Our Eye1 layer now should be like on this below.
On Layers Palette, Set the Eye1 Layer to Luminosity. Choose Erase Tool. Right Click then Set the Eraser Brush to 300, Master Diameter to 50 and Brush Opacity to 20%. Now Erase the unnecessary image on the side of the eye so that the linings on the Eye image will be removed and blend the eye to the Apple. Here’s what it look like after we set it up.
Now duplicate the Eye1 layer by CTRL+J. Then Set the duplicate image back to Normal and name it to Eye2. Select the Eye2 layer on the layers palette then select the eye ball part on the Eye2 using Magnetic Lasso Tool(L). Now that its selected, go to Select>Inverse and press DELETE on your keyboard so that the outside of the eye ball will be deleted. Our image should now look like this.
Lets Group the Eye1 and Eye2 by simply click on the Add Group just beside the Add New Layer on the Layers Palette. Lets name our Group folder into “Left Eye”. Now Shift+Click on Eye1 and Eye2 layer and drag it to our Left Eye Group Folder. Right click on the Left Eye Group Folder then choose Duplicate Group then name to Duplicate Group to “Right Eye”. Now Move the Right Group folder to the Right. After you Move the Right Group to the Right you will notice that the right side is so bright and dont blend in the Apple. Inside the Right Group Folder, Select Eye1 Layer. Choose Burn Tool (O) then Adjust the Range to Highlights and Exposure to 50% then start using Burn Tool on the Right Side of the Eye1 until it blends to the apple. Select the Eye2 then go to Edit>Transform>Flip Horizontal. Now our Eye2 which was the eye ball image will be reverse in horizontal.
Now we’re finish working on the Eye. Our Image will now Look like this.
Now open the Lips image. Select the part of the Lips using Lasso Tool (L) then move it to our working document using Move Tool (V). Put the Lips Image below our Apple Image. Name the Lips image into “Lips1”
Since the Apple Shadow is on the right side and the Lips shadow is on the left side, we will Rotate our Lips1 layer to horizontal. Go to Edit>Transform>Flip Horizontal. Lets adjust it same as we did on the eye. Set the Lips1 Layer to Luminosity.
Choose Erase Tool. Right Click on our working document then Set the Eraser Brush to 300 and Master Diameter to
50. On the Upper Toolbar set the Brush Opacity to 20%. Now Erase the unnecessary image on the
side of the Lips so that the linings on the Eye image will be removed
and blend the eye to the Apple. Choose Burn Tool (O) and set the Range to Highlights and Exposure to 10%. then apply Burn Tool on the Right part of the Lips until it blends perfectly to the Apple’s color. You should shift to Erase Tool then Burn Tool again since on this part we are blending the color until it match. Once your happy on the blending it will look like this.
Now Duplicate the Lips Layer. Shift+J to Duplicate. Name the Duplicate lips layer to Lips2. Set The Lips2 layer from Luminosity to Normal. Select Erase Tool (E) then Erase the outside of the Lips.Once your happy on the result it must look something similar to this one.
And Now we are finish on the Lips. Here’s How it looks after we made her eye’s and her lips.
Now Open the Ribbon Image. Select the Ribbon using Magnetic Lasso Tool. Move the Ribbon to our working document and simply name the layer to Ribbon. Again lets Scale it down so it will fit on the Apple=).
Now for the last part, lets put a shadow on her Ribbon to make it more realistic. Duplicate the Ribbon Layer then select the original Ribbon layer and rename it to Shadow. Go to Image>Adjustments>Hue/Saturation then adjust the Lightness too -100 making it to pure black. Now go to Filter>Blur> Gaussian Blur and adjust the Radius to 60 Pixels. Move the the Shadow layer a little to the right and set the opacity to 80%. Put a text if you want=) On this tutorial i put some line “Do you still want a bite ? . . .”
