There was a massive learning curve that I had to achieve here. I've never really thought myself much of a background designer, I didn't really know how to do them on Photoshop or Illustrator much but I think I got the hang of it pretty quick.
Now, I'm going to be really brave and put up the ugly-awful-socrap-omg-whatinthehell version that I originally did... Be prepared to cover your eyes and scream.
It's so bad I could cry. I nearly did at one point. Every time I peak at it I do a full body shudder. I mean, I hadn't added shadows or anything and the messy bits near the edges had a field guide over but... still so bad! Anyway, now onto the one that I actually like.
We call it, 'Photoshop pretending to be Illustrator'.
And here's a couple more...
Anyway, that's it for today. I'll post some more in the next couple days.
Hope you enjoyed watching me fail
