Let's take a look at what's happening in the video:
Note: This video is aimed at photoshop intermediates, if you have absolutely no idea what's going on, this one's not for you.

00:00 - 00:30; Creating a High-Res Canvas (in order to shrink later on, for best results.) Then using the Pentool and wrap, making the base top part for the island.

00:00 - 01:30; Using different brush sizes, creating a grassy-like outline to the shape, and merging it into one layer.

01:30 - 02:10; Placing a grass stock photo on the above shape, and using select-inverse, cutting the grass according to the shape.

02:10 - 02:40; Using levels (Ctrl+L) Enhancing the grass colours then duplicating the layer and darkening the one underneath to give it a "depth" look.

02:40 - 03:40; Using the same technique for the grass, making the ripped earth underneath the grass.

03:40 - 05:11; Drawing Some Shades on the earth, and trying some lightning options, basically, you should experiment with this part till you're happy :dummy:

Thanks. If I recall correctly, these are from sxc.hu, I don't have any particular resource I usually use other than that one

as a noob, I have to disagree with your comment about it being for intermediates... I learn't a heap from watching this... yeah it's a bit fast to see exactly where to click but if you watch it a few times and play around with PS you can pick up a heap of helpful tips... like flipping brushes... always wondering how that happened... so big thanks for this tut... :D
