water trail by laniessa water trail by laniessa
I need to learn to background.

The image is at full size, so you can see my messiness in all it's glory (in fact, I worked at 50%)

I saw [link] a few minutes ago, so I tried. I... didn't want to use brushed other than the hard-round brush, but I gave in and used a chisel - like brush preset in photoshop.

Hopefully, I can make drawing this a habit.

(needs to look at reference next time.)

Will be scrapped.

Very nice, best way to get better is do studies from reference, not super detailed but learn to understand things more, this is advice I'm only now taking myself^^
I saw a journal by another artist I follow that talked about not using mentors or tutorials since you will only be as good as those that teach you in the end, I'd say studies are the way to go, I will be doing them as well, since I want better backgrounds too^^

Thank you! I was a bit at a loss on what to do with this image because I was working from imagination, so I'll definitely get a reference next time.

Ooh, good luck! I'll try my best as well.
