I met some of you last year at illustration boot camp in KC, but this is my first time posting on this board. I have been concentrating on putting a portfolio together, and one thing I really struggle with is backgrounds. I tend to find that when I put a background in, the spontaneity goes out the window. So my idea was to do something very light and suggestive in the background, rather than too structured.
I’d appreciate your thoughts on this, or any other element that occurs to you.
