This is the first of some backgrounds I did for a short animation a friend of mine is working on.
The short film is actually live action. The animation sequence is for the backstory of the protagonist.
This is was pretty fun to work on as I had never done finished backgrounds like this, with color and whatnot. Plus, in animation, the backgrounds are usually what get me most excited.
I wanted to try something in the veins of the animated movies from the 60's, especially 101 Dalmatians, which is one of my favorites. I could stare all day at the backgrounds of that movie. They're just too gorgeous for words.
I'm pretty happy with how this turned out, regardless if it has any resemblance or not to Dalmatians (which, unfortunately I don't think it does)
