Background Lighting Effects by ramy Background Lighting Effects by ramy
wow HUGE HUGE HUGE tutorial, and I hope you find it useful. I included the tree tutorial that I promised in this one :) Basically the intention of this tutorial is to help you paint backgrounds quickly and painlessly. The techniques are fairly easy and give nice results I think, and I really hope you can put them to good use. I always tend to get lazy towards the end of the cging process and rarely have the energy to do a full background, so here are some of the ways that I still put together a background when I don't feel like spending too much time. Enjoy :D

(oh and sorry for the long load time, it really is fricken huge)
