View Full Version : Your backgrounds and the way you do them

05-04-2008, 11:24 AM
Hello everyone,
I am quite new here, and I figured out I'd post something I thought was missing (or perhaps I didnt look well).

I for one am more of a graphist than an animator. Above everything else, I love do design backgrounds images. I have fantastic works on various forums, and on various animations.

So here is the goal of this topic : show your little wonders, and if possible, share the way you create them, so everyone learn !

I will begin with the two first backgrounds of my movie project.

A wasteland
Inside the headquarters of the tribe, Drake takes a look at the land. (Drake is not on the picture yet, as this is the background.)

EDIT : woops, I forgot. The basic coloring and shapes were done in flash. Textures, lightning effects and other stuff were added in photoshop CS2.

I love it. It looks much more realistic than what the kids here do.

Wow that looks good, the feel of the building reminds of of Black Mesa.

The first is my favourite.
The colors just ran together to create a very mellow setting.

Not as good as the first two, although the lightning is freaking awesome, but the first one has some serious skills. Do you use a tablet? Either way, nice job! Welcome! I think you'll end up being quite popular here with those skillz.
