last month i started a multi-part guide on drawing backgrounds for beginners (or any artist anxious about getting started!). i took some people's questions on twitter about things they struggle with most regarding backgrounds and i'm using those to write up this guide, so hopefully your burning questions about backgrounds are answered here!

  • how do perspective lines work?

  • how do you decide what to put in a character's room?

  • how do you make your backgrounds less flat?

all that and more is answered here!

these guides are free to read and will stay free to read. if you find them helpful consider supporting me on patreon or ko-fi if you like! i post free guides to my patreon regularly and bonus content for patrons 😊

recently finalized the design for one of runa's important historical figures, the mortal saint and father of necromancy Ydesis 🌠 his imagery can often be seen in mortuaries, cemeteries, and medical facilities as a symbol for those passing away without a patron godking, though the few countries that ban necromancy also ban his likeness.
