Software used:
Photoshop, Painter

Step 3

I flattened the image and decided to stretch the canvas out more horizontally as my ideas began to change. Every now and then I brought the picture into Painter and used the Round Camel Hair and Just Add Water brushes to add in details like the sky and the green ground. Then I jumped back into Photoshop and continued to paint (Fig.06).

In Photoshop I used the default Hard Round Brush as well as the Oil Pastel Large brush. A little trick for painting texture into the plants with the Oil Pastel Large Brush is to turn the Color Dynamics setting on and turn up the Brightness Jitter a little. It'll give the impression of more detail than you really painted by hand (Fig.07).

At this stage, I was also flipping the canvas constantly to make sure things were working right. This trick gives you a fresh look on the picture and clarifies any possible mistakes (Fig.08).

Step 4

Even crazier than constantly flipping the canvas was stretching the canvas as more new ideas began to form. The new idea was to split the picture into two halves, like two separate paintings. One side was going to have the destruction and the other side the peace. I played a lot with the color by using Color Balance in Photoshop and Photo Filters, fooled around with different cloud designs by looking up references of clouds online, and just had fun making things up (Fig.09 - Fig.12).

Step 5

At this point I wanted to add the kids back into the picture and really make them the focal points (Fig.13 & Fig.14).

Maybe there are too many concepts on the same board, but the result is high poetry. Congratulations
