Step 1

First a draw a simple thin line through the middle of the page. Then i got stuck in with the fill tool. i choose dark blue for the mountains. Here is an example:


Step 2

i pondered on this for a bit, then i made a reflection (transparently) below it. It looks something like this:



Step 3

Then i zoomed in on the drawing- wondering what to do next. I thought that i might do some detail so i started out with the line tool. I made it really thin and started doing.....lines. I thought the looked like trees sometimes too. It looked something like this.


Step 4

This was good so i finished doing it. But the sky looked to....bright. so i got the fill tool, made it transparent (and Black) and made the sky darker. i also made the reflection a transparent light blue colour.


Step 5

Then i put a couple of stars in the sky (goodness; i feel like God!) and the moon. I used the airbrush tool to make the stars (and moon) look like they were giving of light. I did the moon in the reflection but not the stars because they were not bright enought to be seen in it. i also added a black bar down the bottom which hosted my rough signature which can't be seen in the drawing itself.



Step 6

Then added some fog using the airbrush.


Step 7

Therfore, A complete drawing!
