So I was up all night messing around in Photoshop and trying to work out some color ideas for my backgrounds and I came up with something like this. I am a gradient fiend and can't seem to do much rendering without them, but I also want to pull in some illustrated techniques into it too. This is the most complicated background in my film so hopefully all the rest of the backgrounds will go much faster once I have an established rendering style for them. Fellow filmmakers, please share your input. I really appreciate it.
