Hi. I'm Rosalie and I'm an artist. And I'm going to show you how to draw a mountain looking background. So, a mountain background is simple, classic, beautiful. I just draw these shapes like this. Those are the mountains. And they, you can just put in as many as you want, depending on how mountainous you want this background to be. And you can have them getting bigger as they come into the foreground or closer to the front and smaller as they go back. There's a little one. I'm going to put a lake in the middle of these mountains. Because that is nice. So, I'm just sort of fitting it in here. And it's going to go around that mountain a little bit and just sort of come around this mountain. And then I'm going to make it clear that it's water by sort of sketching in like a smooth water texture. And it can have like a reflection down the middle, just to bring out the lake qualities. But you can see that's water there. You could also have it be a valley with like grass, But the background is the mountains. So, you can just color it in a little, shade them in, and depending on how detailed you want to get with it. But mountains off in the background are a real nice way to have like a background of like a landscape, depending on what you want it to have in the foreground. But it's just a background so, you wouldn't really have to do anything more than that. And that's how I draw a mountain looking background.
