Mimicking some Backgrounds

For the background project we were to research an artist that paints naturalistic backgrounds and draw inspiration from them (no pun intended). The artist I chose was Matt Nava, a concept artist best known for his work on the game ‘journey’. The reason I chose Nava was because his art style is very simplistic and stylised, and doesn’t rely on using too many different colours. I really enjoy backgrounds more once I realise how few colours and & shades they use to create such fantastical backgrounds, so it seemed really fitting to pick Nava’s work.

I learnt alot from mimicking his art, and I feel like I’ve improved alot as an artist, and this will hopefully allow me to create my own unique style of backgrounds!
