First Completed Backgrounds!

Well, I managed to complete color renders on three backgrounds in downtime during one four-hour work shift today: A good sign for productivity on these to come! Here's my first three fully completed backgrounds for Caravan The top of of which has flat colors was posted here, for the curious)

Shots 031, 031 &032

I've mentioned previously my affinity for musical inspiration throughout the creative process. Two days ago, I discovered yet another lovely track from the August Rush soundtrack (Never seen the film, hence the delayed discovery) that has so many textural similarities to how I want Caravan to feel visually, it, frankly makes me rather giddy. So, I had to share.

More again soon,


  1. Lookin' beautiful! I like the soft sandy texture you chose and that nice glow of the still hot logs and the way light is diffused from the trailer.

    Btw, I don't know if it matters, but your texture layer has put a line across the blue lawn chair on the right in that first pic that goes from the seat and up over the arm. Hardly noticeable unless you're a freak like me though!

  2. Thanks so much, Kate! And yes indeed, I have a whole host of paper textures for these backgrounds that are fraught with that sort of imperfection - I want to give, to a certain extend, a slight groady feel to each of these, as well as that of natural fibrous paper. So that sort of thing will show up frequently, I'd imagine :)
