Today I have started on some of the background for my animation, with the help of the very talented Jacqui Davis aka The Logic Fairy (http://logicfairy.blogspot.com/) You should check out her work it's fantastic!
Jacqui helped me on the first background I just did the sky and the red sun, and using the technique see showed me I created the rest.
I still have a few to do but it should't take me long.
This is the ship, I've been working on today for my animation. It's taken me about 2 and half hours to colour, I'm 70% pleased with how it turned out. I just need to improve on my painting skills more, so must do some more digital painting over the weekend.
