Having used textured backgrounds in my last piece, the retro bearded man (see last blog post), i thought i would take it on a level and see how i can combine textures.
by overlaying the two textures on top of each other, i have been able to create a gritty and punchy backdrop. This helped contrast against the modern, pixelated style of the leopard... hopefully adding a unique spin to catch the eye!
My plan is to explore more creative backgrounds that i can find in the natural and man made patterns and textures all around us. i'm hopefully going to start to build my very own stock library for future editorial work.
