EDIT2: Holy sweet cupcakes! Been gone for months, first login and I see this! I am delighted to get this DD. Despite it being an older piece I am still very proud of it. Thanks so much sugarpoultry and KovoWolf for this DD.
Also, thanks to everyone else for faving and commenting. I feel honoured. I am also happy about the DD since it gives all those awesome tutorials the regocnition they deserve.

EDIT: Per request from the commissioner I'll show you a few tutorials and resources I use or I have learnt from some of the techniques I often use in my pictures.
I will list a few of the tutorials I learnt my techniques from the most or that are just plain awesome.

Overall approach to drawing: perzo.deviantart.com/art/All-m…
Not exactly how I do it, but I tend to start out with a greyscale base and build my colors on top of it.

Rocks: ciameth.deviantart.com/art/Cia… Not what I use often, but has great techniques.
scarypet.deviantart.com/art/Sc… Not what I use, but I have it in my collection.
nathie.deviantart.com/art/Rock… HOT DAMN! My fav tut. Watch out for the artist's descriptions especially of this one, he links to great custom brushes you'll need for this tut.

Trees:
vandervals.deviantart.com/art/… I commissioned this one myself. Great fellow artist and an easy tut.
silverwolve.deviantart.com/art… Mostly for the bark section.
nathie.deviantart.com/art/How-… Hmm, nathie is a genius. I actually used his tree tut for the rocks in the back, because the brushes that come with the tut are perfect.
nathie.deviantart.com/art/Quic… Great one, same artist.
applesin.deviantart.com/art/La… Digital speedpainting vid. Watch it, learn from it.
calisto-lynn.deviantart.com/ar… All time fav tree tut. It's a three part tut, you need to read every part.

Background in general:
nika-wolfgirl.deviantart.com/a… Love the cloud section on this one.
foxbane.deviantart.com/art/Tut… Awesome clouds here.
aeterne.deviantart.com/art/Dig… Love the lighting here.

Grass:
My way of drawing grass is based on this tut: nathie.deviantart.com/art/How-…
And I use A LOT of custom grass brushes. Just search dA for grass brushes.

Fur is based on this walkthrough: jocarra.deviantart.com/art/Mom… Looked through the artis'ts gallery and you'll find lots more.

Eyes: souls-poison.deviantart.com/ar… My way of painting eyes is based on this tut. I use textured brushes to make them more interesting looking.
Texture is always good.

Resources I like to use:
nathies-stock.deviantart.com/g…
I use lfoliage brushes like this: mynti.deviantart.com/art/CS3-G…
You can find loads on dA, but they are very easy to make yourself. You will also mostlikely have to change Mynti's brushes, since unless you have a Wacom Intous, most tablets DO NOT support tilt. Mine doesn't so I had to fiddle with the settings to get the desired effect.

Last but not least take a look at my Stock and Resources Collection: icekrystal.deviantart.com/favo… And my Tutorial Collection: icekrystal.deviantart.com/favo…
THOSE ARE NOT MY OWN. Those are my favorite collection. I spent a lot of time browsing dA looking for good tutorials and resources and those are some of my favorite ones.

Still have questions, feel free to ask.

Details:

The deed is done. And I am still alive.
I am not sure if I got everything right as cloudstar-wolf wanted. SHould there still be something missing, drop me a line.

Now I am tired. I need a short break, forgive me. I will list some of the tuts that helped me in creating this image later, on commissioners request.

For now, coffeetime.
