Backgrounds how I build them for my Animations

In this video, I document my process when creating backgrounds for my animated features. In this case we will look at my current feature Tomatohead. The video is a speed paint of me creating the backgrounds and adding all the necessary elements to transform the scene and to help boost the performance of Adam D Crain.

I used mainly two programs to construct the scene, Adobe Photoshop CC and Blender (for exporting a PNG file of Tom’s car) Overall I had a ton of fun working on this project, as well as recording and editing it though I did have a moderately challenging time placing the stops for the cars.
