Backgrounds for Comic Books

Did you know that backgrounds art very important to the design of a comic book? It helps to set the time, place, and date of the book. How do you get good at creating background? The best way is to go out and draw from real life. Go to the park and draw the scenery or go into town and draw the street setting. It will help you in the studio when creating your comic book. Also don’t forget to take your camera. Every artist uses reference material and the ones you take are always the best to use. It’s also alot of fun.
