This is not a complete order to how I created this scene

but here I started off the scene with back drop and stars, originally the stars where very uniformed and in order, I was advised to make the stars more random, so I did this by creating a larger amount, and with different sizes.

I created the moon by a hard brush, then after this, expanding the brush and taking down the hardness to create the glow of the moon.

I created depth to the trees by duplicating the layer and changing its hue and putting it behind the layer in front creating a other trees beyond that single layer of trees.

I also added extra details like the grass and reeds with in the water; i created the water effect on the right by playing and creating brushes.

my final image:

I created the pterodactyl with the lasso tool and filling it

The forground was created by the lasso tool, but then the shapes cut out through using a textured rubber, a lot of the the trees where created by playing with brushes and the then changing the rubber brush to create a texture loose effect.

  1. Hi Matt,

    just a couple of quick questions

    what size are you working in (pixels and DPI)

    The area around the mid ground trees is a bit indistinct, if the ground supposed to curving round to form a bay?
    I think the water might need some highlighted ripples to accentuate the ground placement, as a reference see if you can find some reference pictures of the Blue Lagoon at Olu Deniz in Turkey.... apparently it is one of the most photographed beaches in the world. A night shot from maybe Sugar Beach could be spot on.
