    robots. Need help with background.

    I think there is something wrong with the background but donīt know what it is. I made the mountains that are farthest away more blue. I thought that would give the illusion that they feel farther away then the close mountain side. Help would be appreciated. If there are critiques regarding other things with the picture you wish to bring up feel free to do that.

    I did a really grubby PO. One thing I learned with perspective is that EVERYTHING pretty much has to line up to look convincing. So I use a ruler. I generated a perspective line using this thingy that I use. youtube video I think that this should help you out when planning out the rest of the landscape.

    Then I added some more worm robots and made them smaller and larger for added effect, cuz why not.

    Hope this helped man.

    Give more distant objects softer edges.

    I never thought about lining up everything like that along the perspective line, now it looks much more realistic. That youtube video was really helpful too. Thanks.
