Background tutorial - Part 2 by kalambo Background tutorial - Part 2 by kalambo
EDIT: Changed the colour of the lower writing to black so it's more visible since it's on a paler background than the top writing.
Changed it so there's a version with just a grey sky and no light.

Part 1 --->

THERE, as promised since May xDD

I was going to put trees and leaves in this one as well but rocks and clouds were selfish and took up the whole tutorial :I
So there's going to have to be a part 3 xD

Anyway i say thank you to *pettyartist for the awesome brush i use for backgrounds [link] <3
i can't tell from that image which one i use but you should be able to find it from the image in the tutorial (;

Also does anyone know how to upload just one brush from your photoshop? i can only save the .abr file for all my brushes xD
i want to upload my blendy cloud brush.

Cloud and other brushes --->

Enjoy! i hope it helps some people! <3

I use Photoshop CS4.

Hi! My apologies since I haven't yet checked your gallery, but do you maybe have a tree/bush tutorial? I'm so stuck on leaves! I can get the trunks done good, but not leaves.

If not, would you be opposed to making one?

Thanks so much! And sorry if you've already made one!

Hello! Sorry for the late reply, I've been away.
No, i don't think I have a tutorial for them and I don't really have time to make any tutorials at the moment ^^

I guess the best tip I can give is to give the impression of leaves with a painterly brush and colour and not to try to draw every single one. :)
