Are you ready for another background? This time I went under the sea and created a background for Sid & Nebula to swim around in!! Because of their name sake, these two reminded me of the amazing colors in a nebula and I wanted to get a little of that color into this. So I added some yellows and greens then went heavy with the blues.
This background started with a bunch of yellow, green, blue and turquoise patches. Then starting from the bottoms I covered it all similar to the way I did the night time sky. I used B99 and blended all the way up to B91. Then at the bottom I started adding seaweed with the darkest BG, G and YG colors. The fish were added with another dark color, probably B99, and finally I used the blended pen to add some bubbles and finished those off with the gel pen with more colors. I love how it turned out – more so than my last one.
Now that I have a couple of these finished, I’m going to add a new label named “… Full Background Techniques” so we can easily see them. And yes, I say we, because often times I go back and wonder just how I did that so I can reproduce it again. LOL So far, each one is unique.
The image I used is Sid & Nebula from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and was released this week along with some other great fantasy horses! You should check out the awesome release in the What’s New section and thanks so much for stopping by today. *Hugs
