ChickenFox - Backgrounds

The 3rd year project I'm working on is called "ChickenFox", and I'm helping out with backgrounds and VFX. These are the backgrounds tests I've created so far, with strong reference from the backgrounds in the animatic. The project is stylistically based on cut-out stop motion, so we have a library of textures at hand for the  backgrounds, and the animation is being done with a puppet-based piece of software called CelAction. The green fields test was done using masks in photoshop, and the interior scene was done slightly differently: I created the basic shapes and shading for the scene in greyscale, then applied a material with a 'colour burn' blending mode. Below is before and after the material is applied, and the rest of my backgrounds.
