BAckgrounds

I think I complain to myself that I hate to draw backgrounds because they take a long time, figuring out all the details. But when I have to do a spread like this building exploding!I realize that I actually enjoy backgrounds a lot- perhaps more then drawing the actual characters! I just completed this one the other day and I was pretty proud that all the real perspective and all the parts where I faked the perspective meshed together and it actually looks believable.
Because of the way my writer changes location in the story every other page, Undertown has a ton of background drawing to establish things. So its like...slow to draw, probably overly dense, but I think it should look pretty. Maybe I should pitch a manga to TP where it's just backgrouds and no dialogue or characters!

Holy cow! Backgrounds are so hard to draw, but this is very good! And explosive! Let me know when your book is out. I will gets it.
