well I did a couple more things to this environment....hopefully for the better. This environment is for a character called Mia from the film idea I have been developing an art of book for in uni. Because of how long backgrounds like this take I had to simplify the others leaving this one looking completely out of style but hopefully it's a nice enough background that it sits well on its own.
Some designs for the Polynesian character in my story.....he will have tattoo's eventually but these were mainly to see if I liked the proportions and colour of the character......still not sure about this character...............yes the right peck is small.
I decided to finish working on this Background image today as I realized it was taking me an awful long time and it wasn't even in a style that I wanted my work to be in.....just got carried away with adding details. the mountains are still not finished and possibly the composition of the far right tree should change but I decided that I should move on and finish this at a later date if I have the time.
I've been struggling with my background design the last couple of days but this is the best of the worst. I like the sky and the leaves but I rushed the city and the islands as it was taking too long. I'm planning on adding an airship attacking the city once I have finalized a design for the airship.
This is part of a background I am doing in collaboration with Rhys Byfield for his final student film. He's designing the backgrounds and I will be colouring them for him. This is unfinished and is actually part of a much bigger image so doesn't have the finished lighting yet but I thought I'd upload it to see what people thought.
I uploaded two versions because we were unsure whether to keep the line on or lose it altogether. above is the one without which I personally prefer and below is the one with Rhys' lovely line.
