A few years ago, at a comic convention, a man commented on the lack of architecture, detailed backgrounds, and establishing shots in my then-comic, Ball & Chain. It was a very valid criticism, until he said: “oh, women just have a harder time with that stuff”. As a result, I made it my life’s mission to prove that bro wrong.

Additionally, this was my first time drawing a detailed house with the help of references and while trying my best to respect the rules of perspective. I modelled it after the older county houses I used to see while driving to one of my former workplaces (with an added touch of cutesy tackiness). I HATED that drive!

Those are some really beautiful sceneries! :rose:
You absolutely proved that rude man wrong, the amount of detail and that perspective angle turned out
really well! There is so much to see there
And I also like that soft color palette

My more detailed pieces take several hours to complete. :) I love working on detailed things traditionally though; I find it relaxing.
Glad you like the end result!

That's awesome! 
I think you've officially become my first artistic role model (if you can call it that?). I really admire your work and dedication, it's something I look up to
I'm looking forward to seeing more of this comic~

I'm such a prideful nut, I feel like I have to become a master at backgrounds too now. Any dis that includes me gets me just a tad riled up.

Is it a female thing? I find I have a lot of difficulty establishing background as well -w-

I definitely don't think so. The guy who suggested it was an ignorant douchebag not to be taken seriously, lol. Whether you (or anybody else, for that matter) has trouble with establishing backgrounds has nothing to do with sex. It's more so a matter of practice and developing that particular skill. The reason why I never drew backgrounds or establishing shots was mainly due to laziness (and my discomfort with the digital medium I used to draw my then-comics). With practice/references and a switch to traditional mediums (and subject matter that was more to my liking) I finally started to get the hang of it. I'm sure if you were interested in backgrounds and you persisted, you'd eventually become more comfortable with them. :)
