So I came up with a colour palette for my film a few weeks ago:
And so I decided to use my old boards and do some quick (20-30 min.) paintings to test out the palette and get a feel for how the backgrounds would come together.
This one's pretty rough and ugly, but it made me realize which brushes I wanted to use and which ones I was going to avoid (standard brush--definitely avoiding).
So I came up with these ones--liking the textured simple look a lot more (though for the final BGs I'll probably go a tad more detailed). Think I'm happy with the colours now.
Time to jump into final backgrounds!
