For this Project I had to create and imaginary landscape in photoshop. I decided to do a floating island that was drifting out to sea. While working on my original idea i was struck by the inspiration to have lava fall down the cliff from the crate like the waterfall in the original image was. After that was done I felt it there should be some elemental image as there is both fire and water, I added birds as if they where created from the sea and lava. Then i created a flock of air based birds and earth birds that are moving the island. I posted them separately as i was told the birds draw away from the landscape but love how they look and bring a story to the image.
