There's something soothing about drawing a tree. Even a rough sketch with a ballpoint pen on a legal pad can calm you. I've been racking my brain over this whole sidewalk perspective thing and I still haven't come to a conclusion. There is a rather strong possibility that I'm thinking about this way too hard. So I decided to jump into some more background asset creation. I'll scan these, bring them into Photoshop, place them in the size chart pic that I created, and start painting.
I can't really know how everything is going to look until I've created a mock-up. Hopefully I'll find some time this weekend.
