Boba Fett & Cap/Wolvie 03's
I masked off the background and painted in the white to knock back that gray, so I could hopefully have more saturated colors for the back grounds, and I think it worked! A hazy, hot, blue Tatooine sky for Fett...
...and a warmer 'explosion' toned background for the Cap/Wolvie pic. I'm really happy with the blending of colors against that really strong black that was in the underpainting. You can still see elements of it, but it's not so dominating, bringing the focus back on the characters.
I also put in a bit of halo'ing around the characters in both pieces, hoping to set up an easier transition between foreground and background.
