This is the sketch I started my background from. I started with three sheets of 11x17 tracing paper and drew the foreground on one, Middle ground on the second, the background on the third one. This way I could scan these in and color them on separate layers and eventually do some camera movements within my background.
I decided to gray scale my picture out so that I could get all of my values. ALso the BG, MG, and FG is separated.
First, I applied two gradients on their own separate layers to set the mood (starting at orange at the top and yellow at the bottom). I switched the blending mode on the second layer to multiply to pick up a lot of the values that I laid down, when I was doing the gray scale. Then, on the first layer, I changed the blending mode to soft light to make the gradient pop out a little. I also added a little blue to the top of the sky on a separate layer because I felt it need some contrast with all the warm colors I used. I did a lot of other things to make this pic come to this point, so if you are interested in the other techniques I used, just let me know.

Chubby Angel Backgrounds
Morning!!!! Well Here is some backgrounds for my Chubby Angel Animation. All of them were painted on Photoshop.
I made this wide view so I could zoom in and out if I need or pan left or right.
My main reference for the backgrounds was Hercules and All Dogs go to Heaven. I also used this tutorial to help me make the clouds.http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=§ion=&global=1&q=Pixar+Clouds#/d23lozh
