Background Blitz: Second Chance

SECOND CHANCE

Since I wasn't sure about what topic to choose, this time you get to decide what to draw! You can pick any of the previous themes used in the Background Blitz, directly from this list.

Of course, you'll need to tell us what topic you chose. ;) If you already started, but didn't finish, a background for that particular topic, you may use some sketches that you did. But I'd prefer if the background itself was all new.

Many thanks to Sinitrena from whom I shamelessly copied borrowed the topic idea (and even the title), and who also compiled the master list!

Deadline: 31th January 2021.

Voting:

Concept: your background should tell us something about the place you have depicted.
Playability: does it have clearly defined walkable areas, things to interact with, etc?
Artistic Execution: does the image convey the wanted atmosphere? What's the feeling of the place?

Good luck! ;-D

I tried a painting off the cuff on the last theme – tropical.

Lovely background, Creamy!
It has a nice sense of depth and makes you want to explore the rest of the land! Many different items to interact with too.

Thanks  :)

I like the mix of hand drawings and numeric colors in your games too, Raccoon and lorenzo.

You made it through the mountains, you faced the jungle, you solved countless ancient mysteries - all on your way to the old Temple of the religion of the CUP. Of course, you assumed it would be blue, but...



For both Ex-Society and Temple. I had a sketch before but there were too many things I didn't like, so I started from scratch.

Very nice entry, Sinitrena! I really like the temple and there are so many opportunities for exploration and puzzles (the coloured symbol and buttons, the door, etc).

The theme is "Glowing".

I worked waaay to long on this one, but at one point it just gets messier instead of better. Anyways, I think as a kid, I would have loved this.

Nice, dreamy atmosphere! I really like the colour choices, and the animation adds some life to the scene.
