Within this project I created a fantasy landscape using photoshop. I decided to try to fuse vastly different real world landscapes for the background of my image. A mossy jungle backdrop was used for the base image and I added layers of volcanic areas above the jungle. Giant gekos were added to incorporate a more fantasy element. I created a mask around the cave area to merge the jungle background with the dragons mouth cave in yellowstone. I also used a mask to remove backgrounds from the jungle plants in the front, and the lava and rocks in the back of the image. Transparency was used mainly for shadows, but I also used it for the clear water pool to make the floor of the pool look more natural with the jungle background.
