These are a number of the environments I have been making for the project. I still need to revisit a couple of them and add clouds and specs to the sand.
This was my test environment. I was trying to come up with something that both of us liked. After a number of attempts this was the solution. The clouds are all different styles and I ended up not using any of those methods in the final pieces as the new ones don't take as long to make.
Background for the scene with the Turtles running down the hill. I'm still going to revisit it and add some texture to the foreground sand. Background for the scene charging up the hill towards the bunkers. Still needs some clouds and texture in the close sand. Background for the scene with a turtle being attacked by a seagull. Clouds are done in this one, but the sand still needs some close texture. Background for the turtle behind cover. Looking at it again, I'll most likely touch it up some more later; adding a little more to the clouds, and a few more specs to add texture to the sand close up.
