For my thesis I decided to do two background designs that would be used in an animation. Each background is created with the intention of them being set from the same red planet. They are sci-fi, post-apocalyptic illustrations that could be used in numerous storylines and instances. I tried to use a combination of graphic elements and movement to create these scenes. I also used a monochromatic color scheme and differing textures to allude to the mood of the background settings and what stories might take place here. My love of both animation and landscape illustration created the perfect outlet for my thesis and I will take what I’ve learned from this project to bring into my future background designs.
