Hi, my name's Jessica, and I'm artist. And today, we're going to draw some background scenery. So, the first thing we're going to do is, we're going to draw the area where our background is going to take place. So, here we go. We've got this area here, and we're going to do some mountains. We're going to do, like, a mountainous background. So, we're going to draw them kind of high up on the page, because the background takes place in the back, and then the foreground is where the action takes place. So, in this scene, we also have a mountain that's, like a little bit closer, which is why we did that line like that. And, that is, you know, we can see some stuff going on on the mountain. Like, maybe there's a path that goes up the mountain, and a couple trees and things, some action happening here. There's also water. There's a big lake that goes all the way around, like so. And, we've got actually another mountain that kind of comes in here. And, this is developing a little bit of dimension here, so we can see there's action in the foreground. And, there are some trees and things there, too. Now, in the background we've also got, we've got some more trees and what have you up here, and we've got a sun and some clouds, lovely clouds. And, we've got some birds flying. And now, now that we've done our background, we can do whatever we want to take place in the foreground. Say, a couple is having their picture taken together as they look over the water. So, he's got his arm around her, she's got his arm around him, and they are so happy, and they're having their picture taken together. And, that is how you draw background scenery.
