Backgrounds (FTAP) by TastesLikeAnya Backgrounds (FTAP) by TastesLikeAnya
I'm not really very good at backgrounds. I mean, I can kinda do alright ones if I put a lot of time into them, but I can't draw good ones under pressure. (Nothing is going to be as good as that first one I drew, haha.)

Behold, my craprounds.

Need some tweaking, colour adjustment, but they'll do.

I'd like to add: If there's one thing doing all these backgrounds has taught me, it's that I really love doing backgrounds. I look forward to having enough time to draw up some cool scenery and landscapes someday.

That top right background makes me feel like a child again, playing in the dirt. No matter what you think about creating backgrounds, you definitely get the feel of the place. Thanks!

These are so atmospheric and the colours are great. I think you're better at backgrounds than you think you are. :)

I watched the animation and it was AMAZING. The colors and the background and just everything about it was perfect.

Wow :wow: I really really liek those backgrounds :la:
my favorites are 3 4 and 8 though 9 has an amazing color pallette :heart:
They all have such amazing perspectives and awesome contrasts (the lack of contrast is why I like number 5 and 6 the least)

THOSE ARE AWESOME :happybounce:

These all took a few hours each, maybe between 3-5. I use photoshop cs4 and an intuos 3 tablet.

Crapgrounds?? You are a Magnificent artist and if you YOURSELF bring yourself down, who else can bring you back up? I may be crazy, but I know good talent when I see it, AND YOU SIMPLY EPITOMIZE IT. Be positive!

Nah, it's not that I'm down on myself. I actually am pretty confident about that stuff. But these definitely aren't to the standard I wanted them to be.

They're just very flat, is all. I wanted them all to be as crazy as this: [link] But it's just too time consuming.
On the plus side, the animation distracts the eye from some of the less detailed bgs.

ahhh, artists- we're our own worst enemies. I happen to like these, especially the last panel. I would love to do landscapes too but drawing characters floating on blank pages for years leaves me wondering where to start.

Crapgrounds? You're kidding, right? xD

Huge fan of your art, but bias aside, they're really quite nice. You've got a wonderful variety of hues going on (love the 3rd one, amazing perspective). Your attention to the colour palate in your short's production is also really interesting; I've never heard of "colourboards" before --sounds so useful!

Out of curiosity, how long does a project of this magnitude take?

Really can't wait to see the end result! :)

Far too long, haha. I have 'till the end of October for this, and it's definitely not enough time to do the kind of quality I wanted. But enough time to do it. If that puts it in perspective.

That's all the production, though. The pre-production took me from beginning of 2011 to the end of 2011, but I could feasibly do it quicker.

Also, colourboards are super useful. Just to test out colours on your storyboards.

Thanks much, too!

Hey! I saw all of those on the production blog, but they're still better in real! :dance: I like the wolf-like face on the berries of the eighth one.

Just one question: are they all involving a certain glow from FT?

Haha, not kidding. These definitely aren't up to my standard, though I'm fairly happy with them, and I'm having fun with them. I expected all the bgs to be of this standard: [link] but I think I seem to care less and less with everyone. Which is still okay with me.

Awmawgawd! These came out absolutely wonderfuly!

A few of these are getting a bit complex though. I really really love the POV of the top right, and you did a great job executing it, but I highly suggest dimming down the cast shadows - or making them not so complex, perhaps just shadowing the whole ground or something. It's a bit busy right now.

Really nice job on these though, I'm really glad you included a large version for download xD.

Nicely done <3!

Yeah, I was worried about that. I'll see what happens when I get to the animation, as Fire Tiger has this constant glow which could dilute all the detail around him.

Thanks!

And, yeah, haha. This is a massive file. I think it's 200% bigger in the original. (Every bg is 3840 x 2160)

Your use of colour really produces a great atmosphere to go with each background. Maybe as more practice with backgrounds, try producing a background that portrays specific moods. Like one for sad, one for anger, happiness etc. I only have one suggestion about one of the backgrounds here. The top right one (the one of the tree) has a shadow under the tree that sort of looks more like a reflection than a shadow. I'm thinking its because the brush tool used is so crisp and makes out the shape of the tree (like a reflection would), rather than being uniformly flat (like a shadow). Does that make sense? Sometimes i confuse myself lol. Other than that, all the other backgrounds look really well done. I specifically love the upper left because of its' depth.

Aha, yeah. I thought it looked like a shadow early on in the process, but could not fix it. I hoped it was only me, haha.
However, I will try that, that sounds like something that would help.

Thanks!
