First, isolate the image, you can use whichever method you like for this. I used the brush tool and a layer mask to isolate this photo (as well as all of the other stocks in the piece) but you should use whatever your most familiar with.

Step 2Once you have isolated out the female we will need to isolate the Marble Bust.

Step 3Now that we have our two main images, its time to start blending the two together. To do this we need to start off by creating a new document. So go ahead and press Cmd/Ctrl + N on your keyboard and set up the new document as I have done in the below screen shot.

Now drag and drop both of your stocks into the document. Create a duplicate of each layer (the bust you will need, the female just in case!). You will need to free transform them about 50% when doing this. To free transform them you will need to press Cmd/Ctrl + T on your keyboard.

When dropping the female in, free transform her (on top of the bust) so she fits about halfway up the bust as I have done in the below screen shot.

Step 4Once both stocks are in and sized appropriately, make a selection around the female stock by holding Cmd/Ctrl and performing a Right Click with your mouse on the layer. Once that is done, invert the selection by pressing Cmd/Ctrl + Shift + I on your keyboard.

Now erase away (on a layer mask) all of the bust that sticks out from behind our female stock.

Now switch back to your female stock layer. Once you have done that, grab a 400px soft edged eraser and erase away her edges too. Doing this will fade the statue into the female stock.

Step 5Now grab your duplicate bust and drag the layer above the female layer. Once you have done that select the female, invert the selection as we have done before, and remove all of the new statue that is not covering her.

Now set this to an overlay layer and erase any of the edges that are still hard. If need be, use your clone stamp (50px soft edged) to fill up any areas your overlay layer did not, for instance the neck.

Step 6Now merge all of your layers. Once this is done, we will desaturate the entire layer; to do this press Cmd/Ctrl + Shift + U on your keyboard. Now that it has been desaturated we will fade this by pressing Cmd/Ctrl + Shift + F on our keyboards, fade the desaturation to about 40%.

Now repeat the above process, this time fading it as an overlay at 100%. Next we will add in a little bit of color. To add in color we will press Cmd/Ctrl + U on our keyboards. Set up your hue and saturation editor as mine is below.

Step 7Now we can add in some more color. Make a new layer and fill it with purple, to create the new layer press Cmd/Ctrl + Shift + N on your keyboards, then press G on your keyboard to grab the fill tool. Once you have filled the layer with purple, go ahead and make a selection around the statue (as we did before) and delete everything that is not covering that statue.

Set this layer to overlay at 20%.

Next we need to add some more color in. To do this we will head over to the Layer drop down menu and go to Adjustment layers Photo filters, once you have clicked this a new dialog box should appear with a few presets we can choose from as well as the opacity or Density of the layer. We will click the drop down menu and choose sepia with a density of 25%. Then just press ok! Just leave this layer as a normal layer at 100% and we will continue.

Step 8Now we will head over to Zen Textures and grab a nice Rocky Texture.
