About Me

My photo

Editing Yesterday's Illustration

I don't know if this looks any better than the one I tried yesterday, but I tried putting the photograph import virtually 30 miles in the background and worked on making the foreground more believable in relation of cars in the parking lot. The background is no longer transparent as there is no way it could cast a shadow. I also made the shadows correspond to shadows seen in that import.

Siting Illustration

Here is a siting illustration where I have contrived a background that works with afternoon shadows.
This perhaps reveals how I've done it, importing a photograph onto a vertical plane that simulates the angle of the mountains. I did have to make the opacity of it 69% so that the photo would not cast a shadow onto the drawing.
