NO STEALING, COPYING, TRACING OR HEAVILY REFERENCING MY STYLE!
Warning HUGE file!!
Sorry about this whole copyright thing but I'm just worried that after taking forever to work out this style and get it to how it is that someone might try and copy or take all this hard work that belongs to me. Please understand!
Okay well really you should start with the sky first and work your way from the farthest object in the background to the nearest in the foreground. The trick with backgrounds is detail! Don't blur it out like does, I find that it ruins the picture and looks rushed or annoying to the eye. The trick with detail is sveral different colors aswell! Light tends to have a white or yellow or even orange/red hue (depending on the time of day) and shadows are colder so usually black or purple or blue. But remember that is the hue and tone not the actually color of the object! You don't want rainbow mountains! And be cautious with shading, shading does best when introduced gradually not as harsh 'black and white' lines!
