This panel took more time than I expected, but I think it was worth it. PSP has a feature it calls 'paint tube' (GIMP calls it 'brushes' I believe) in which you can drag and it will leave a trail of images. I made a bunch of leaf images, as well as grass images and made several paint tubes out of them. That way I literally painted the leaves and grass into the background, and it's all my work. Added layers, threw in a little blurring, and I was done with the background. Course, drawing five characters in a panel took awhile as well.
