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:

aye at first It had voice, but I had to double its time cause it was too long and frustrating, and took a big size so I couldn't upload it. maybe I'll narrate it somehow, and add illegal licensed music.

Very nice tutorial. How did you get the brush strokes to apply around the island/selection at 1:18 though?

I knew this will come up, I just cut some of the video cause after a while you get the point and didn't want it to get boring, so, no magic tricks :D

Oh, so you just kept painting in those strokes by hand I see. I thought there was a feature in PS that allows you to apply brush strokes along a path. :)

well I bet there is a way to achieve that somehow, heck, if you looked hard enough you could probably make coffee with PS XD
