How to Draw and Use Backgrounds in Manga
Hosted by Dirk Tiede

How to Draw & Use Backgrounds in Manga Many beginning artists find drawing backgrounds intimidating, and often actively avoid them altogether. Unfortunately this means they miss out on using scenery to evoke a believable setting, which can produce a powerful effect in storytelling. However, with a little thought, patience, and few tricks, learning to draw them can be fun and rewarding. Dirk I. Tiede, creator of Paradigm Shift, demystifies the art of using perspective, photo reference and other techniques to create realistic backgrounds in comics. Covers the importance of using setting in storytelling, and features an in-depth demonstration of perspective tips and tricks.
