The Secret Life of Trees

I went through a phase, a few years back, of doing very long exposure, night-time photos. This is a series I did called ‘The Secret Life of Trees‘…

Background Texture

CapBackground

This is the texture I made to put behind Seri in my last post. The trick to making good background textures is not to make them the main feature. When I construct a texture behind the character, I’m constantly damping the texture down, and concentrating on the character, making sure the texture doesn’t overwhelm her. I’m not making the texture for it’s own sake. When I’m finished, if I like the texture, I delete the character and save the texture to my ever-growing folders of fabulous textures, which make it easier and easier to create new ones… I seldom re-use exactly the same texture. Anyway, sometimes, as with this one, when I remove the main subject, I realise that the texture, itself, is a gorgeous landscape! Usually they’re just that little bit too bland to stand alone, but I think this one does (:
