After a lot of struggling.. It's finally done! I will update the top post with the description of this scene.
I'm happy with what I was able to achieve in this because I used a different process in this image than what I am used to. Instead of layering each element separately like usual, my mindset for this was just laying paint on top of each other while rarely using the eraser tool. This process enabled me to mix around the colors in the canvas until I find happy accidents. Although it looks a bit more brushy than my usual stuff, this process is really organic and fun to do.
