Background Design Process

This section is very WIP!

I’ve been designing and painting backgrounds for indie visual novels as a side gig for a few years now. Creating rooms with character-specific details and putting together a style that complements the sprites are my favorite parts of the process. Personally, I find world-building very fun, and it’s waaaay less stressful than doing character art.

I’m not interested in replicating my portfolio here, so I’ll just be sharing some process steps and thoughts using some old works.
