City backgrounds by Juggertha City backgrounds by Juggertha
I'mjust throwing this up here to show some of my work for a few upcoming projects. Trying to get the whole background thing down.

So far, I figure if I draw it out and color it beforehand, I cna add them to a scene and add highlights and secondary shades later.

Meh, we'll see how this works.

Those are some really nice background, cityscapes. I like the top one... I think i saw a bird, or was it a plane?

That's a great way to work. I should try that sometime. Then again, I generally don't have need for wide-scale scenery like that...my stories are based in much more compact--and therefore difficult--environments.

So what did you do, digital trace, or just use screenshots as reference? Just curious.

EXACTLY! I have been working on building up the same idea. Just use flat colors and plenty of wide view city shots. Nice City of Heroes buildings too. Not Kings Row, not Atlas, I forget with part of the map those are from - one main middle part of the Pargon City with the Giant saluting statue. ;-)

It's been a while since I was on CoH

Good job, great sense of distance and vanishing points. Specially on the second one.
