What Should I Put For The Background?

Postby vanoso » March 2nd, 2019, 12:00 pm

I am very stuck on what I should make the background be. For now I just have some orbs of light, but I'd like to have something that makes more... sense? I guess? Something that looks better than this lol. Any feedback/advice is greatly appreciated, thanks!

Those types of backgrounds do work if the piece is character centric. If it's meant to be more representational, I'm going to parrot what mitchellbravo asked. If you still want something more abstract like you have, maybe you could use shape and color to imply what type of character this is.

Thank you guys! You've given me something to think about when considering the background, and I think I have a better idea for that now, thanks!
