The Raven: Bg Design 2 by DragginCat The Raven: Bg Design 2 by DragginCat
Second part of my vis dev project! This one was a bit more difficult to work with than the last bg, but i personally like it a bit better, i think cause it looks more fantastical than the other one, which was just a pretty generic forest tbh. |D

One of the last parts of the Raven story has a glass mountain with a castle on top that the hero struggles to climb. I... had no idea what that was supposed to look like xD so I mainly had to just go with a semi transparent icicle looking mountain I suppose. |D
The hut in the foreground was built and lived in by the hero since he spent a year trying to climb the mountain but kept slipping down. Yeah this story is weird haha x'D

Heres the last background:  The Raven: Bg Design 1 by DragginCat I hope I didnt deviate too much from the style xD

That sure looks like it would be a challenging climb! It's a pretty mountain, but probably quite slippery! Very cool illustration.

blending technique is superb

The way I blend is:
Create a new Layer and FILL it with WHITE
Then CREATE a your mid tone layer above the White layer and paint your base colour.
Then create a new darker layer under the mid layer. Ctrl click the thumbnail of the mid layer, then click the lower layer you should have a selection made... and SELECT EDIT FILL and use
a darker colour.
Now go back to the mid layer and create a layer mask, it should be on the bottom left hand side where you create a new layer next to fx.
Now select a soft brush about 14% opacity and paint in the darker areas, the bottom area will start to show through your mid layer.
Once your happy with the result go to LAYER: MERGE DOWN, the two layers become 1 Create another layer mask on this layer and with 14% opacity paint in the lighter areas...DONE

You know, if it's glass, why don't they just use pickaxes to climb up? Or, in fact, use an explosive to bring the whole thing down? XD

Very fun and creative, and I love the background mountains and their textures. One thing... the bloody door. There is no way it fits in that door frame! silently fumes about the door being left open. Seriously, were they raised in a barn? XD

ITS HARD GLASS, THE HARDEST GLASS IN THE UNIVERSE

Thank you! Yeah I wanted to make the door kinda shoddy and badly put together xD To show that it was handmade from the hero (hes kind of an idiot in the story lol)

Mmm, that makes more sense. And, wait, if it's hard glass, how does anyone get up there? Or is the person who lives up there an anthropomorphic bird? So many more questions! XD

Definitely looks very mystical, fantastical. Great job on the crazy ice mountain spire thing; the background looks incredible, as does the lighting and detail.

Great job overall on this. Thanks for sharing Draggincat!
