on the drawing board: go figure

Even though I like to work on my figures first, when or before I work on my figures I try to fill in the background area around them.  This way I won't smudge too much of the work I've done on the figure when I finger blend elements in the background. When I have a background like this though, a bunch of random plants for example, and I'm referencing several different jungle photos, I don't have a specific plan and am just making it up as I go along.  This slows my work on the figure down while I 'work out' what I'm gonna do with the backdrop.
