The backgrounds were created using water colors and gouache paints and I'll add the rest in with photoshop/ painter on my computer. The items in the front were painted larger and will be resized so I can place them where I want. I really wanted to create a concrete dock that looked really old and weathered. I was thinking of adding some graffiti also but i decided against it- it made the rest of the image look too cluttered and distracting. I love how raw and old concrete looks, it helps ground my characters a little and make them feel more realistic.
I have a deadline coming up this friday; I have to hand in some work to the animation dept. I'm a little behind my own schedule so I'm upset with myself but i have so much going on during the day with RA training so I'm incredibly tired by the time that I get back. Siiiiigghhhhhh........ deadlines...... I need to start trying more to meet my own goals- everyone root for meeeee!!!
