Making :: A Certain Day at A Certain City by AsakuraShinji Making :: A Certain Day at A Certain City by AsakuraShinji
The making of my latest art, "A Certain Day at A Certain City".

Actually, some people were asking me for tutorials to make BG, but my method is still very lengthy, inconsistent, and relies heavily on layer blending. That's why please bear with this step-by-step for now.

A word of warning though, this method I use now is not a good one, more like a workaround to make up for my lack of color picking skill... so if you want to become a pure painting expert like Jonas de Ro or Feng Zhu, I strongly advise you to not use this method of mine... ^^;

Software used is Manga Studio 5, with a total of 114 layers.

This is one of the best drawings I've seen. Love the Lamborghini Adventador Roadster (I think that's what it is (one of my favorite cars)) and just the picture altogether is magnificent. ^-^

amazing~ , helpfull and inspiring yes. Your art is so gorgeous ;w;
I am a little confused at the "blending the char in the bg" could you maybe give me some more tips on that?

To ask you to make a tutorial seems a bit too much xD I am already happy you made this tutorial!

:iconasakurashinji:
AsakuraShinji Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Sorry, but it's hard to tell you how exactly I did it... It's more a feeling than technique. Just use those layer combination and experiment to find the best color balance. Some tips I can give : When adjusting, zoom out 'till you can see the whole picture. See the picture as a whole, did the character look out of place or stand out too much...? If yes, then you need to adjust it some more... :>

And thanks very much~ >w<

Matte terasa terbatas kalau g punya stock photo/texture yg banyak, dan aku males cari photonya... XD

Sempat kepikiran pake 3D juga sih, tapi kapan aku bisa menyusul fuzichoco-sensei kalau gitu...? Aku dari dulu konsen ke bg karena pingin bisa bikin bg sekeren dia... TwT

Misalnya gambarnya dia yang ini www.pixiv.net/member_illust.ph…
atau ini www.pixiv.net/member_illust.ph…
kalau pake 3D malah mati aku...  _(┐「ε: )_

kalo matte ambil dari www.cgtextures.com/ banyak kan dah tersedia

nyusul fujichoco ? nyamain aja rasanya mustahil XD mau nyusul hahahahaha butuh 10 tahun dari sekarang itu mah 

kalo 3d kan enaknya bisa dipake terus sama gonta-ganti perpektif terus gak usah gambar lagi :3 apalagi buat BG visual Novel

Hahaha, nothing is impossibru... just you wait... targetku maksimal 4 tahun lagi harus udah bisa bikin kaya gitu... mwahahaha... :icondignitylaughplz:

Yah, kalau buat VN atau manga emang enak pake 3D, tapi aku kan g bikin itu... dan aku kurang suka bikin sesuatu yg mirip dg yg pernah kubuat sebelumnya... ;w;
