I really should start learing how to do backgrounds, so here's a starter. I'm actually proud of this one but I was unfortunately not able to use it for the Jecht fanart I made (though I did take the sky element from it). It still looks alright as a stand alone scenery I think.

My thanks to :~Silveraxe: for putting up a tutorial for doing mountains for me. It's a good tutorial for people who are just starting this kind of stuff go check it out!


MEDIUM: Corel Painter IX and Adobe Photoshop CS2

Hey I like this! Great use of color to capture depth.

I'm glad you like this one. I'm not too much of a background artist myself but I decided to give this one a shot. Thanks for adding it to your favs list.

It looks really dreamlike:) i like the colours and artbrush really much. I hope to see more of that soon;) maybe add some vegetation or sun. Juse let loose ur imagination and i know u'll come up with something inspiring:)

Hey, thanks for the favorite on this one. Yeah, vegetation is something I still need to think of a way to do. But I figured I'd just take one step at a time right now since painting backgrounds is something pretty new for me. But vegetation is something I definately consider doing before moving into more difficult things like cityscapes. Appreciate your comments!

I love how whispy everything seems. The mountains are very pretty. The whole scene makes me wish I could be there.
