So yeah! Backgrounds!
This was my final project for background design class taught by my teacher ~Sarafinconcepts
. I am not a background artist, have never expressed interest in becoming one because drawing them kinda bores me... so I have very very little practice with drawing any sort of environment and it does not come naturally. These aren't meant to be super realistic, but they are pretty detailed, with them being 11"x17" @ 300 dpi (10"x20" for the top one). I also do not like working large. All in all not my favorite class ever, but it has definitely given me some useful tips (omg mixer brush ftw) and much needed practice.
These are some concept designs for Theod
's planet- the unnamed Arnok homeworld. A lot of inspiration was taken from the work of ~SpinningAngel
and my favorite place on Earth: Lake Powell. However I did not use any reference when drawing these so I feel kinda like a badass pulling them out of my head.
The top panorama is also a seamless repeating loop :3 I also had a lot of fun playing with the colors.
