12 Back­ground el­e­ments

ImagineFX - - In Depth Render Characters -

The brief re­quires the back­ground to be sim­ple, sketchy and sparse, so that text can be added when the image goes on the cover. On a sep­a­rate layer, set to Mul­ti­ply, I ap­ply a light-blue fill, then scrawl a few ar­chi­tec­tural de­tails that sug­gest a Parisian set­ting. I also paint some light­ing over­lays to the back­ground to fur­ther frame the char­ac­ter.
