step 10 of 14
I then used the bird brush that I found here: http://qbrushes.net/nature/5-bird-brushes/ to draw birds on the right side of the image. I also created a rainbow on the left side using the gradient tool low opacity and a gaussian blur.
step 11 of 14
I had to replace one of my sources, "The Old Dark Room". So I decided to create my own room. so I found a photo of wood and used perspective to make the ceiling and floor.
