I am afraid Akinlolu that will not gonna happend. I've no CorelDraw nor I am familiar with any screen capturing software. I think the only kind of tutorial I could make is the written one. Momentarily no time for such venture :D

Anyhow, Marc will surely give his approach in simple, understandable steps.

Well appreciated George I., but folks like me who are not use to PotoShop User Interface it is a bit difficult if not confusing. I for one feel at home with CorelDraw. So I suggest a screen capture software that can record  both the actions on the screen as well as voice, while you work and saves as *.avi or *mpe4 for others like us to follow like a sort of webminar.

The whole thing is quite simple. Render lawn area with texture like grass from photo. There are a lot of them out there (I usually use Heath's one). In Photo-boutique (LOL) program, select the area you want to make looking better with lasso tool. Use copy-paste process to replace rendered grass with some real one. The edges where grass blades should be visible (e.g. where lawn meets pavements), use grass brush from preset picker, alter its size according to distance from camera and its flow, select appropriate colour (and if you are familiar with other tools, use clone stamp tool to reproduce blades from the grass bitmap you already use in this image) and hand paint grass blades on the edges. Some nice shadows can be added then using perspectively distorted tree images as darkening selections, with applied heavy blur to the contours. Happy lawn mowing. :D

These grass of your are still a killer. Done in PH I believe, please outline how again or point to perivoius links where you did so I can take time to master its replication.

"George, this is the path tracer engine. Do you have another recommendation? I am still figuring out materials. I will note that for future renders."
