Want to know the secret of drawing great backgrounds? Don’t think of them as ‘backgrounds’! These are environments. The places your characters exist within — not just backdrops to throw behind them as an afterthought. Too many artists forget this and become what Eisner called ‘slaves to the close-up’, sticking with the one thing — people — that they’re confident they can draw— afraid that if they pull the ‘camera’ back they might have to draw a dozen things they’ve never drawn before. Those who have seized on that challenge, however, have changed comics history with the worlds they’ve created. And so can you. Just remember to let your readers step into your world — make that world unique — and give them a reason to come back again and again."
