Bryce4 is the best tool for such a background making.

About the finish of the work
This time, all processes from the plan to the production completion were produced on around the 45th. About 70 percent at the production period is the Unicorn, and 30 percent of the remainder is a distribution of composite of all the material processings such as the ruin production of the background and water plants, materials. This unicorn differs from the one produced last time, makes the rough sketch by 3D image, and is redrawing it with Photoshop.
