Create a Surreal Turtle Image - Photoshop tutorial

This tutorial shows the creation of one of my images. It shows how I adjust lighting and colours in my images to create this surrealistic turtle. Hopefully, you'll be able to transfer these methods to your own work. The full version of the result can be viewed here: Full size surreal turtle. I'm using Photoshop CS5 running on a Macbook Pro, so some stages may differ for some people. Before photoshop CS3, a gradient map is known as "Gradient Fill". These are the sources I used in the creation of the image, special thanks to Night Fate for providing the background: Turtle - Night Fate - Desert - Sky - Elephants - Gazelle Stream - Grass - Tree 1 - Tree 2 - Tree 3 - Tree 4 - Tree 5
