Tales of the Abyss BG Studies by Avibroso Tales of the Abyss BG Studies by Avibroso
This was a good excercise for me to paint some BG\'s I know I should probably be trying to paint more from life and photos of real places but I really wanted to do these fantasy backgrounds because I think that I understand certain relationships between the colors better because they're so saturated : O

Also because I was referencing these off of my TV I wasn't able to resort to color picking like I would have if I was working off of a picture on the computer.

I\'m pretty happy with most of them. (Except Chesedonia...eff that one really. >:C )

Started with Tataroo Valley (night time) and then I suddenly had to do more This may or may not kill my friend hana...

This is really REALLY beautiful! I mean wow! Definitely adding this to my favourites so I can look at it every time I feel like skimping on a background XD

Oh wooooooow, these are absolutely gorgeous and ohMAN way to hit me with a huuuuge pang of nostalgia! I absolutely LOVE how these came out, the colors are so rich and yet harmonic, and the way you really played with lighting was just terrific~ ♥
I mean, I really can't pick favorites, but the lighting in the kimlasca throne room and cheagle woods, and mt. roneal~ waaaaah, all of them, seriously! ;-;
