Step 25

Now you are done with models. You should take care of whole background. Add new layer (Layer > New > Layer ..., Shift + Ctrl + N or marked shortcut). Choose big soft round brush and set its opacity to around 25% and color to navy blue - #171c25 (for lighter shadows use #596571 color). I'll show you, how I've done that at normal (100%) opacity, for easier effect. Draw shadows on each of the trees, shadows below characters (remember about perspective). Don't be afraid to make strong shadows - if it's your vision, do it! :)
