A Background Guide by Auro-Cyanide A Background Guide by Auro-Cyanide
This a new background guide I did to replace my old one [link] since, well, it was terrible and it made me wince every time someone favourited it.

I'm not the best at explaining, so I hope it's somewhat understandable. Please ask questions if you haven't gotten something I've said :)

I have used some backgrounds I did for an upcoming sim/visual novel game called Culina as examples. Please go check it out! [link]


Perspective for Comic Book Artists: [link]

Some actual perspective tutorials: [link]

Shading: [link]

And I recommend all of fox orian's tutorials

Thank you! I'm glad you like it ^_^

Haha, yes, I struggled with perspective for a very, very long time. The best thing to do is read up, change the way you look at it and practice, practice, practice~
