Background tutorial - Part 2 by kalambo Background tutorial - Part 2 by kalambo
EDIT: Changed the colour of the lower writing to black so it's more visible since it's on a paler background than the top writing.
Changed it so there's a version with just a grey sky and no light.

Part 1 --->

THERE, as promised since May xDD

I was going to put trees and leaves in this one as well but rocks and clouds were selfish and took up the whole tutorial :I
So there's going to have to be a part 3 xD

Anyway i say thank you to *pettyartist for the awesome brush i use for backgrounds [link] <3
i can't tell from that image which one i use but you should be able to find it from the image in the tutorial (;

Also does anyone know how to upload just one brush from your photoshop? i can only save the .abr file for all my brushes xD
i want to upload my blendy cloud brush.

Cloud and other brushes --->

Enjoy! i hope it helps some people! <3

I use Photoshop CS4.

But seriously these are super helpful.

When my own mother tells me my hillsides look like female genitalia. It's time to study backgrounds. XD

These tutorials are wonderful! Just what I need to get my backgrounds out of the gutter. I don't suppose there will be a part 3 anytime soon? Possibly on trees and foliage?

Thank you! I'm glad they are still helpful to people after all this time!

I did plan to make more but life got busier and busier and i don't know when i'll have time. But yes at some point i hope!
I kind of want to do one on a background as a whole instead of individual elements too. :)

mosiebear Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2015
That would be great! Like how to tie in a scene with common lighting and color elements?
Reply
:iconkalambo:
kalambo Featured By Owner May 13, 2015
Yeah exactly that, often that's the hardest bit is making everything fit together when you know how to do individual elements of a background :D
