TAKE THIS TUTORIAL WITH A GRAIN OF SALT, I WAS A BEGINNER WHEN I MADE THIS AND I'M STILL AN ART BEGINNER NOW!!! THIS IS JUST TO SHOW MY ART APPROACH IF U LIKE HOW I RENDER STUFF!!!

AGHHH it's finally done this took forever to make

I'm really hoping this helps someone, I put way too much energy into it but I'm glad it exists now.
I've never done anything like this before, took awhile to figure it out.
This is a really general tutorial for beginners so I cant go very in depth. If anyone wants a tutorial on a specific thing feel free to tell me!

This simplifies all the theory I've tried to pick up through reading/checking out books at the library and makes it so very, very understandable.  Thank you for this. :squee:

I don't think it ever won't be useful, so no worries there. xD

And thanks! :D  I've always put off backgrounds because I never felt confident, but I've been digging up as many resources as possible to finally start practicing.  Maybe soon I'll start working on all the stuff I never finished, lol.
