I spent a week at the State of Art Academy, following their post-production course. Below are my results. First is the render we were given, followed by the finished version. Many thanks to the State of Art Academy for their excellent lessons, by the way. Post-production done in Photoshop.

Following along with the teacher, this image took us a day and a half.

One to two hours, background was given.

Four to five hours.

The final day was a post-production war. I decided to go for a cross between Simon Stålenhag's paintings and Lana Del Rey's "Love" video. Eight hours total.
