Background Tutorial by tanaw Background Tutorial by tanaw
HEY GUYSSS Here's the background tutorial I promised you. c: I hope you guys find it useful! I tried my best explaining how I usually do my stuff.

OMGGG, There's so many typos there! ;uuuuu; Please ignore them. :iconlazepoolplz:



Here's some reminders:

* All of my backgrounds are made in a single layer. Why? Because it's easier to blend colors. C:
* I love the overlay layer. I usually add orange, red or green to make things more vibrant.
* If you're confused, GOOGLE IT. C:

Don't be afraid to ask anything, okay? C:

EDIT: Ahhh, reading through it again, I sound too all-knowing. The stuff I put there is what I believe in and practice. ;uuuu; I didn't mean to sound too sure of what I was teaching. I might be wrong. ;uuuuuu; Big Fool Emoji-07 (Cry) [V2]

Thank you so much for taking the time to make this tutorial! This is so usefull and the style is very to my liking :hug:
I often have problems thinking up a nice bg for a drawing which is why I often just give it a color instead of making gras for example, but I'm really happy you made this step I had to take a lot easier ^^
