There's more to backgrounds than just taking a character and plopping them down somewhere. The background is a key part of the composition!
In our latest art tutorial, character designer and illustrator Brian Ajhar shows you how to make your characters and backgrounds work together 💃🕺
If you’re not already familiar with his work, check out this interview. Our very own Will Terry sat down with Brian to talk about how his career evolved, how he refined his style over time and why he decided to do a class on Building Backgrounds.
This class is the video only version of the interactive one Brian taught earlier this year. Now you can take the class on your own time and your own schedule! (Without his personal feedback of course😉)
In this class you will learn:
Fundamentals of perspective and why it's important
Understanding your character in perspective
Why it's important to know the eye level in your drawing
Adding furniture and props to a room
How to make your characters live in their environment
Making perspective believable and using perspective to to tell a story
