Reduce brush size by 2 pixels and draw another layer of freehand lines to fill the shapes of the models. This is for behind the front layer.

Layer styles used on both line layers....Bevel and emboss, contour, texture, satin.
Shadow made to match shadow direction of dune grass.
Freehand sand painted around feet and onto model wires using clipping mask.
