Lucy I'm Home!Yea, today, they discharged me from the hospital. I feel much much better and honestly, I kept reading your notes and comments of support and I cried a little on the outside and a lot on the inside. Thankfully, they had one working computer so, I was able to check in once in awhile on Google+ and DA to see any updates.
Thank you guys so much. I'm honestly sorry for what had happened but I got the help I needed. I got to catch up on sleep and relax away from family so, that was good.
Thank you so much and remember, I love every one of you guys. You guys are one of my main motivations in my work!
BackgroundsAs promised! Not entirely a tutorial but I trust this to be useful. Here's a fair share of my mindset when drawing backgrounds.
If you're tempted to try backgrounds but avoid them in fear of failure, start by realizing that there's no failure in trying. Take it easy, go with something simple, loosen up those shoulders and draw! Remember you don't have to show it to anyone unless you want their feedback.
Keep in mind that nothing you draw is flat and mostly everything has more than one plane. A common mistake is to allow the lighting that comes from a certain point to affect everything 'that is next to it'. This isn’t always right. Whatever stands in the way of something will steal its chance to be lighted and will be, instead, shadowed. Play close attention to your surroundings IRL, play with a desk lamp or your phone's flashlight and put things around and look at how the shadows lay on top of other objects.
