Off the wagon a little this week with family and other things - but here is the thumbnail of the current BG. This is a long pan up into space, originating from the North Pole. These big camera moves end up being very taxing to paint since the end resolution for the screen is 1920x1080. At some point the computer always gets boggy - even doing simple things. Anyway, this one is well along and I hope to finish soon. Just trying to determine what should an overlay to build the dimensionality. I also have a question on the subject of continuity. There is chimney smoke in this scene that I must have drawn to enhance the layout. Seemed like a nice element - drifting upwards as we pan up. Problem is I didn't have a Chimney or smoke in any of the other BGs. I don't mind some continuity problems, but what do you think about this one? If anyone has an opinion, i'm happy to hear.
