First Flight by moni158 First Flight by moni158
This is from a little break I took between Uni work and commission work TuT

So I tried this new thing, where instead of drawing them floating in a giant empty void, I draw their surroundings? like around them and stuff, I think its called 'drawing a background'. It was scary and confusing, I wouldn't recommend it...

Drawn half in Sai and half in CS6

She had better keep that thing well fed, and pet it a very great deal...  Its expression is very grim, you caught her smugness and sense of pride VERY well.  The background is very good, well-drawn, and adds a lot.

If this is truly your first attempt at drawing a bg, then i say not bad! It's certainly better than certain other people's bg *cough-moi-cough*. The trick is to NOT STOPPING with drawing bgs (hmmm, that sentence looks dicey...). Make sure you do another bg for your next piece. And great job!

Yeah, I've had a few run-ins the beast we all know as "The background" :fear: He/she/it can be very daunting. But you did good, you managed to make the background and subject look like its part of the same image :3 something I still struggle with <.<
