Bob Ross is the dirtiest xD. Painting backgrounds is really relaxing but yeah the more detailed, the more procrastination. Making backgrounds in sketch up and/or Blender is actually pretty time consuming without help or assets, but its worth it cause you can keep using it from different angles. Backgrounds will always be the final boss no matter what you do , just have to accept it lol
TheStrangerous:But if it was behind white bars, then not so scary, isn't it?
The false sense of security appears.
Without the background broken up by those lines and the character of deadman being able inhabit all of them, that background would seem quite sparse and half asses. That's probably why they seem so intimidating and cutting them up seems more comforting. Putting some dividing lines in breaks it up so you don't have to try and add some pointless detail to a muddy construction site.
I agree with what everyone is saying here. I noticed there is a lot of things I refused to tackle because I think they are too much.
For example, starting a comic seems impossible when you think about all the characters, environments, and narratives you have to make.
But if you just start doing one thing at a time it will come together over time
I've started applying that concept to doing backgrounds as well.
Now I just start with the composition.
Then I work on the perspective.
I feel like details should not be worried about until the very last step. Then the details become easy.
