Fall of Spartacus: Background

I created a background image for my character. I didn’t want to spend a lot of time on the background, so I found a nice nature image of the horizon and sky I liked, and used it as a base for a paintover to create an environment that fit with my intended style.




It turned out quite well, however I wasn’t sure if I was going to use it, as a lot of character pictures actually work better with a plain black background and a spotlight, with maybe some volume lighting. Backgrounds also may take the attention away from the character if you’re not careful.
