Join Bert Monroy for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating the basic cliff, part of Bert Monroy: Dreamscapes Volume 1.
Now here we see a tree trunk.…When I looked at this, I didn't see a tree trunk I actually saw it as this cliff.…Now to isolate it I went in and created an alpha channel.…The special movies on explaining an alpha channel will tell you how this was created…but this isolates that little tree trunk from the rest of scene in back.…So I'm going to load that channel to make it a selection, I'm going to send this over…to a new Layer Via Cut.…Now it's in its own layer and still it's like a tree trunk but now if you squint your eyes…a little bit you could almost see a cliff here with a big city in the back ground, you…can just let your imagination go to town here.…
Now what I'm going to do here is I'm going to start to add a new top to it.…So I have here another file that I have, which I called river because it has this river right there.…This is a faraway scene kind of like our little cliff is faraway, so this is going to be the…element that I'm going to bring into this scene.…So I'm going to take this whole thing and bring it into here. So there it is.…
