Hello! I'm trying to work on the storyboards for a fantasy comic, and I'm having trouble with the backgrounds. Most of the works I'm looking at for inspiration, and that carry the kind of mood I'm looking for, are all concept art and digital paintings. One of the opening page spreads I'm working on is a view of the main protagonist looking over a valley, and in the distance is a mountain range with a pair of face statues carved in the side, sort of forming a gateway of sorts. I'm trying to keep the entire work in a per say "manga style", but I want it to diverge from that as well to give it some personality and uniqueness. All in all, it's really hard to get the look I'm going for with lineart. Does anyone have any advice on how I might achieve this?
And apologies if this seems like a really vague question. I'm not entirely sure what questions I should be asking so I just kind of puked my thoughts into a thread. Haha.
Thank you in advance!
