Paint the center of this stroke over to darken it. Alt click in another spot. then click on the seam where you want to cover. The most important area is the horizon.

19. Open up your image of the woman. Duplicate the background, and turn the eye off on the background layer. While the background copy is the active layer, Use the magnetic lasso to go around the foreground arm, her left arm.
