Light them up!You'll have to indulge me as I am on a bit of a binge. I've discovered that painting back drops is easier for me that 10mm Roman shield patterns, so I've diverged a bit. Actually I'm really having a blast doing these and it puts my BFA to good use.

Another idea I have for light box backdrops is actually building a "stage" set. Here's the start. The buildings were originally designed by the talented and handsomely rakish Jaye Wiley of Wiley designs ( Jay is my artist who does all my flags and cool add artwork!)
I've taken his original designs and started changing them up for scale, and layering. This is the first round of test shots. Now that I look at them, I want to get a bit more depth to the set, but not full on 3D.

Right- that's all I have for now. I'm thinking of doing an article for one of the gaming mags on backdrops. What do you esteemed readers think?
