I am really waiting to see the new movie Alice in Wonderland . As I remember I was not a fan of this book when I was little but I a sure I will like it now. So in meantime I have decided to create my own photo manipulation inspired by one of the official movie posters . The character choosed is the Red Heart Queen. I hope you will enjoy reading this tutorial!

Step 1 – The Girl to be Queen

Open a new document with the size 600 / 500 pixels. Open this beautiful photo Girl.

Scale the image to 70%. There is no need to keep the background so carefully delete it. I usually use the Pen Tool (Paths) create a selection and than delete it.

Step 2 – Room Sketch

OK now I want to sketch the room to give you an idea of what we are going to do next.

Create a new group and put there all the 13 layers with the room walls , ceiling and wall details. Use the Pen Tool to draw this shapes.

In the image below each shape has a number. I will atach a color to each number :

the-red-queen-of-hearts-from-alice-in-wonderland tutorial intermediary image

So for shape no. :

1 - color #b40202 ; 11 and 9 – color #8f0202 ; 10 and 12 – color #700000 ;

4 and 5 – color #d81e1e ; 2 – color #bf0707 (to this shapes I will add a heart pattern)

8 and 13 – color #c00e0e ; 6 and 7 – color #9d0606 ; (add a stroke for this shapes , size 1 , color #6e0707

3 – color black (to this shape I will add a chess pattern)

Step 3 – Patterns and Textures for the Red Room

For the three visible walls I will add a heart pattern. Download this pattern and load it into your photoshop file. So for the shapes 2 , 4 and 5 open the Blending Options Window and add Pattern Overlay:

To make the walls more real I will add them a wall texture. Copy the texture and place it on the right side of the image . Duplicate the texture layer , flip it horizontaly and place it on the left side of the image. Select and delete the intersection area.

Merge the two layers . Set the Blending Mode from Normal to Soft Light 100%.

I will have to adjust the Brightness and Contrast as shown in the image below:

the-red-queen-of-hearts-from-alice-in-wonderland tutorial intermediary image

Use the Burn Tool to darken the corners af the walls. And than select the floor and ceiling and delete the texture from this areas.

Now copy the texture for the ceiling. Scale it to 70% and than rotate it 90 degrees. Than Skew the image :

the-red-queen-of-hearts-from-alice-in-wonderland tutorial intermediary image

Select the ceiling shape , select inverse and delete the extra texture. Set the Blending Mode of texture layer to Linear Burn.

Now let’s fix the floor. Draw a rectangle . Add a Pattern Overlay (download this chess pattern) to this rectangle.

the-red-queen-of-hearts-from-alice-in-wonderland tutorial intermediary image

Duplicate this layer . Merge this two layers . Now we have to add Perspective to the resulted image:

the-red-queen-of-hearts-from-alice-in-wonderland tutorial intermediary image

Select the floor and delete the area that exceed the shape from the chess pattern layer. The next thing that we have to do is to copy texture for the ceiling , but this time we will apply it to the floor. Set the right perspective for the texture. Than set the Blending Mode to Darken 100%.

Add Brightness/Contrast like in the image :

the-red-queen-of-hearts-from-alice-in-wonderland tutorial intermediary image

Step 4 – Chandelier

For now leave the room as it is ; we will darken parts of the room later to give a little contrast.

My main interest now is the chandeliere. I have decided to use one from a beautiful Fancy Chandeliers Brush Set.

The only thing that I had to do is to download the set and choose one of the chandeliers (Chandeliere_21).

Step 5 – Little Door and Other Room Details

Copy this Wooden Door into the file. Crop only the door , than resize it to 30 %. Duplicate this layer three times.

the-red-queen-of-hearts-from-alice-in-wonderland tutorial intermediary image

Add a little red heart and darken the edges of the door. You should obtain something similar to the image above.

Now I want to make a frame for the door. With the Pen Tool draw a shape, color #b00a08.

I have decided to darken the ceiling a little so I have changed the Brightness/Contrast of the Ceiling Texture Layer.

Draw a shape on the floor like in the image, color #0c0101.

the-red-queen-of-hearts-from-alice-in-wonderland tutorial intermediary image

Change the Blending Mode of this layer to Soft Light . Than rasterize the layer and with the Blur Tool blur the interior edges of the shape.

I like it just the way it is. Alice in Wonderland is taking place in a dream-like state so everything is surreal, I like the way you created that environment reply
