The Lone Ranger. Part Nine

So with both figures moving right along, I turned my attention to the background. Working in Illustrator as much as possible now to keep it clean and editable. Much of the vector work is exported out as smart objects. Just in case you wanted to know that. Even in vector form, I still try to keep a basic painting principal in mind of little shapes on top of big shapes. So I am working with the biggest pieces here.

With all the big shapes in place, I can now go back and start to define each area with a bit more detail.
