This one was created nearly twenty years ago! Using a very early Photoshop. I learn visually, so I simple press buttons to find out what they do. This way you don’t get stuck in other peoples styles. I explored and pushed each tool, filter and menu item, to see what it would do. As with life, you learn by your mistakes.
It’s very simple compared with the images I create today. There are only seven layers, one using a PS Filter, yes, used to use photoshop filters and no added textures. It was entered into a Southport PS Competition before creative images were accepted but got a reasonable response from the judge. There were some judges that understood, one day it would be Photoshop Images common place. Thank you to that judge for always supporting creativity.
