My dream job is to be a background designer/artist. Yes yes! I love drawing backgrounds. So I gave myself a personal challenge and I decided to draw a couple of backgrounds from my comic, Nuclear Winter. Instead of chosing some fantasy/sci-fi setting, I’m focusing on the mundane to practice my lighting and colours. I have absolutely no education in this field so I’m just learning as I go. This was done entirely from scratch, in Photoshop, with a couple of photo references for the props. It’s far from being perfect but it’s a learning process!
So anyway, this is a corner of Marco’s office, with his reading chair. I drew a lot of old, second-hand furniture because Marco still writes by hand and he’s not a computer person. I thought it fit with the old, run-down Mile-End apartment he lives in.
