One of our scenes was to use colour, i used a simple pallet using similar tones. I like the composition on here but colour pencil was probably not a good material to use as the foreground needs to be richer in colour.
We had to create a layout using pencil and tones, i like the perspective on here however there is a bit much detail, as it was for a layout.
The last background we were asked to create was a room with a directional light, i made an abandoned house using light beams from the boarded up window. I used ink and oil pastel to create this, in the original picture the light looks harder.
I might try editing these backgrounds in photo-shop to get a more stylized look.
