HEY GUYSSS Here's the background tutorial I promised you. c: I hope you guys find it useful! I tried my best explaining how I usually do my stuff.

OMGGG, There's so many typos there! ;uuuuu; Please ignore them. :iconlazepoolplz:



Here's some reminders:

* All of my backgrounds are made in a single layer. Why? Because it's easier to blend colors. C:
* I love the overlay layer. I usually add orange, red or green to make things more vibrant.
* If you're confused, GOOGLE IT. C:

Don't be afraid to ask anything, okay? C:

EDIT: Ahhh, reading through it again, I sound too all-knowing. The stuff I put there is what I believe in and practice. ;uuuu; I didn't mean to sound too sure of what I was teaching. I might be wrong. ;uuuuuu; Big Fool Emoji-07 (Cry) [V2]

yoo this tut is great tbh and really simple for a dummy with drawing from them like me.. X'DD
lowkey think it might help ya a bit with practicing bg's into more of a "toony" style for some reason.. lol
probs cause I've seen too many colorful animes ahhh

It is nice!
But it won't help me with my toony style xD
(Simply because I've found that my favorite style of BG to draw is simple hard lines. - like in [Evoloon] We can't keep him.)
I liked see the process regardless.

Hello! I was just wondering, on the blending 9 tool, what is that option: spread 1 blmtp? I don't have this one ;n; Is there any way to get it?

Thank you so much for taking the time to make this tutorial! This is so usefull and the style is very to my liking :hug:
I often have problems thinking up a nice bg for a drawing which is why I often just give it a color instead of making gras for example, but I'm really happy you made this step I had to take a lot easier ^^
