BG NameTimeStatusDescriptionSnowFile Link Location
3
PROTAGONIST ROOM MorningNopeTypical boy’s room. Curtains should be visible to show the time of day with a bit of morning light wafting through. Maybe we could use the old video game trick of giving the protagonist a poster of the game’s boxart, though I don’t actually have that boxart yet.

PROTAGONIST ROOMNightNopeTypical boy’s room. Curtains should be visible to show the time of day with a bit of morning light wafting through. Maybe we could use the old video game trick of giving the protagonist a poster of the game’s boxart, though I don’t actually have that boxart yet.
5
KITCHEN/TABLENopeNot sure if this should be one BG or two. Some scenes have the protag standing by the kitchen or talking about food, but that’s about it. The table is the main focus because it’s used for breakfast conversations. Nothing too special here
6
PROTAGOIST HOUSE - FRONT DOOR (optional)NopeThere’s one scene where a character visits the protag and they have a short conversation by the front door. Other than that, it might come in handy in the other morning scenes, as opposed to leaving the screen blank. The entire house is just your standard house.
7
STREET A MorningNopeThe “first” street; the one in front of the protag’s house. It’s a typical street in the suburbs with some snow lying around. Somewhat like the attached picture except less snowy because that was taken while it was actually snowing.YES (NOT DONE)
8
STREET A TwilightNopeThe “first” street; the one in front of the protag’s house. It’s a typical street in the suburbs with some snow lying around. Somewhat like the attached picture except less snowy because that was taken while it was actually snowing.YES (NOT DONE)
9
STREET A Cloudy EveningNopeThe “first” street; the one in front of the protag’s house. It’s a typical street in the suburbs with some snow lying around. Somewhat like the attached picture except less snowy because that was taken while it was actually snowing.YES (NOT DONE)
10
STREET B MorningNopeSame idea as Street A except it’s closer to the school. The style is the same; it just has to look different so that the player doesn’t feel like they’re on the same street for an hour.
11
STREET B TwilightNopeSame idea as Street A except it’s closer to the school. The style is the same; it just has to look different so that the player doesn’t feel like they’re on the same street for an hour.

13
CLASSROOMNoonNopeTypical anime classroom. Should be drawn from a desk near the window, as always. Sunset should be at least somewhat dramatic in terms of lighting. I suppose the windows wouldn’t be visible but it doesn’t really matter either way. I was thinking of putting some sort of reference on the blackboard, like in Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei.YES (WINDOWS & EXTERIOR ONLY)
14
CLASSROOMSunsetNopeTypical anime classroom. Should be drawn from a desk near the window, as always. Sunset should be at least somewhat dramatic in terms of lighting. I suppose the windows wouldn’t be visible but it doesn’t really matter either way. I was thinking of putting some sort of reference on the blackboard, like in Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei.YES (WINDOWS & EXTERIOR ONLY)

16
SCHOOL STAIRS ATwilightNopeNothing too special, I just need it to show movement, like in Tsukihime.YES (WINDOWS & EXTERIOR ONLY)
17
SCHOOL STAIRS B TwilightNopeSame as aboveYES (WINDOWS & EXTERIOR ONLY)
18
SCHOOL HALL AMorningDONE (FINAL - READY TO USE)Generic school hall for a lot of scenes. Attached picture is an example. This game treads the awkward line between Japanese and non-Japanese, so I don’t want any obvious American objects like lockers or Japanese objects like those signs above classes (3-A, 2-C, etc.). Basically, avoid things that make the reader question where the story takes place, because that isn’t really relevant.YES (WINDOWS & EXTERIOR ONLY)www.solterraph.com/sepia_tears_finished_final_bg/school_hall_a_morning.png

21
SCHOOL HALL B Mid-dayDONE (FINAL - READY TO USE)Same as above except less important since it only has to be used once. I could use it more than once for variety but that might require more lighting effects.NOPEhttp://www.solterraph.com/sepia_tears_finished_final_bg/bg_school_hall_b.png
22
SCHOOL ROOFMorningNopeAnime roof, basically. Fairly important to the story, though it’s only seen twice. There might be an event CG for the night one.YES (NOT DONE)http://www.mediafire.com/?r1wijqx8krukz7fThis one just needed snow on the background and a few on the railings and ladder - Leave color correction to me - Johan
23
SCHOOL ROOFNightNopeAnime roof, basically. Fairly important to the story, though it’s only seen twice. There might be an event CG for the night one.YES (NOT DONE)http://www.mediafire.com/?r1wijqx8krukz7fThis one just needed snow on the background and a few on the railings and ladder - Leave color correction to me - Johan
24
OUTSIDE SCHOOL Mid-dayNopeI’m not sure if this should be behind the school or in front of it, so either would do. It’s for when the characters leave the building or are waiting right outside. The school should be a bit more interesting than your typical rectangular block that you see in anime; don’t want it to look too familiar.
25
OUTSIDE SCHOOL AfternoonNopeI’m not sure if this should be behind the school or in front of it, so either would do. It’s for when the characters leave the building or are waiting right outside. The school should be a bit more interesting than your typical rectangular block that you see in anime; don’t want it to look too familiar.
26
OUTSIDE SCHOOL Snowy AfternoonNopeI’m not sure if this should be behind the school or in front of it, so either would do. It’s for when the characters leave the building or are waiting right outside. The school should be a bit more interesting than your typical rectangular block that you see in anime; don’t want it to look too familiar.

The school should be a bit more interesting than your typical rectangular block that you see in anime; don’t want it to look too familiar.
28
LUKAS HOUSE - OUTSIDE MorningLack snow (mefloraine has made snow version but I can't find the file she sent nor can I find her Twitter account in my list)Protag’s friend’s house. Used in one scene when the characters are waiting outside. Should show the front door clearly.YES (FINAL)www.solterraph.com/sepia_tears_files/bg_lukas_house_morning.png
29
LUKAS ROOMMorningDONE (FINAL - READY TO USE)Otaku room. Don’t make it too cluttered, but try to draw a bunch of miscellaneous anime merchandise like figures and artbooks. It’s a bit different since this is being drawn, but you can draw specific doujin covers if anything comes to mind. There should be a computer with a blurry monitor (the monitor is on but you can’t see what’s on it)YES (FINAL)http://www.solterraph.com/sepia_tears_files/bg_lukas_room.png
30
TRAIN INTERIOR Mid-dayDONE (FINAL - READY TO USE)Exactly what you’d expect. I never managed to take a picture of the train interiors where I live, but pretty much anything should do. Just don’t copy those triangular handles in the Japanese trains (like the ones in the sample pic)YES (FINAL)www.solterraph.com/sepia_tears_files/bg_inside_train.png
31
MISC OUTDOORS (optional)Mid-dayNopeCan’t remember exactly where this was supposed to be used so you can leave it ‘til the end. Basically, there are one or two scenes where the characters are just walking in no distinctive location, so I might be able to use one of the street BGs for this.
32
OUTSIDE MALL A SunsetModel / Texture DONE (Un-rendered)Exactly what it sounds like, though this isn’t a fancy city square; just a typical (but large) mall. There should be a bit of a path to walk around, as if the characters are behind the building rather than in the middle of the parking lot.
33
OUTSIDE MALL B SunsetModel / Texture DONE (Un-rendered)Same scene as above. Not sure what to do about it, but the scene is kinda long and I need something to show that they’re walking.
34
PARK - BENCH MorningNopeSmall park with the protag sitting on a bench. Twilight version is only used briefly; morning version is used for a bit. I don’t have any sample pics but imagine a small park in the suburbs.
35
PARK - BENCH TwilightNopeSmall park with the protag sitting on a bench. Twilight version is only used briefly; morning version is used for a bit. I don’t have any sample pics but imagine a small park in the suburbs.
36
PARK B Cloudy TwilightNopeSimilar to above except more like a playground than a park. Swings should be visible. It goes with an event CG, but the CG doesn’t show much of the background. I attached it anyway.
37
FORESTTwilightNopeNot a shot from the Amazon; just imagine that you go a bit off the path on a typical bike trail. I attached a sample pic of what the entrance might look like, but a BG from inside the forest would be of more use than one of the entrance.
38
LILLIAN HOUSE - OUTSIDE AfternoonLack snow (mefloraine has made snow version but I can't find the file she sent nor can I find her Twitter account in my list)Outside the protag’s female friend’s house. It might be too much work to create for just a short scene, but it’s hard to describe entering a neighbourhood with a black background. I could also try to make the scene longer… (as for the neighbourhood, this is still typical suburbs stuff. Try to make it look warm and welcoming)YES (FINAL)www.solterraph.com/sepia_tears_files/bg_lilians_house_afternoon.png
39
LILLIAN STUDYNopeGirl’s study room. There should be a plushie on the desk to match the attached SD pic. The girl is normally serious and studious, and her room is supposed to reflect a slightly more girlish side.
40
CITY STREETS A MorningNopeDowntown streets. I don’t think I’ve seen too many of these in anime; I guess it’s only Tokyo that has the Manhattan-style towering buildings and skinny roads? I attached a sample pic, but I didn’t get to take any during the day. For the evening/night ones, make something like the Christmas lights in the sample pic; I think all of the night ones are used on Christmas Eve.
41
CITY STREETS A Mid-dayNopeDowntown streets. I don’t think I’ve seen too many of these in anime; I guess it’s only Tokyo that has the Manhattan-style towering buildings and skinny roads? I attached a sample pic, but I didn’t get to take any during the day. For the evening/night ones, make something like the Christmas lights in the sample pic; I think all of the night ones are used on Christmas Eve.
42
CITY STREETS A Cloudy EveningNopeDowntown streets. I don’t think I’ve seen too many of these in anime; I guess it’s only Tokyo that has the Manhattan-style towering buildings and skinny roads? I attached a sample pic, but I didn’t get to take any during the day. For the evening/night ones, make something like the Christmas lights in the sample pic; I think all of the night ones are used on Christmas Eve.
43
CITY STREETS B MorningNopeSame as above, I just need more than one for variety.
44
CITY STREETS B Mid-dayNopeSame as above, I just need more than one for variety.
45
CITY STREETS B Cloudy EveningNopeSame as above, I just need more than one for variety.
46
CITY STREETS C MorningNopeI was picturing this a bit like the shopping district in Kanon. Something like that should work as long as it matches the other downtown BGs.
47
CITY STREETS C Mid-dayNopeI was picturing this a bit like the shopping district in Kanon. Something like that should work as long as it matches the other downtown BGs.
48
CITY PARK SunsetDONE (FINAL)It’s kinda hard to describe the difference between a city park and a normal park so I’m hoping you’ve seen one. Sample pic was taken at night, but it should give you the general idea. This one’s only used in one scene but it’s a fairly important one; dramatic lighting is preferred.YES (FINAL)www.solterraph.com/sepia_tears_files/bg_city_park_sunset.png
49
HILL (optional)TwilightNopeThis is just for when the characters are climbing to the “hilltop”, which is the next BG in line. Not sure if it’s necessary, so I’d save it for later.
50
HILLTOPTwilightNopeVery, very important one. It also goes with a yet-to-be-drawn event CG. It’s supposed to be a hill overlooking the city (I was kinda thinking of Makoto’s hill from Kanon). There’s also a Generic Cherry Blossom Tree towering atop the hill, though the type of tree wouldn’t matter since it’s winter. The rest is pretty much up to you, just don’t be afraid to make it dramatic. Depending on how it comes together in your mind, you can make it bigger than 800x600 to allow for panning effects.
51
SHOPPING CENTER ARCADE (optional)NopeThis only appears when one of the girls is playing whack-a-mole so it’s probably optional, but I’ll have to figure out how to not confuse the viewer by talking about a whack-a-mole machine without actually showing it.
52
MALL BENCH Cloudy EveningNopeSelf-explanatory. I’m not really sure what to do about the background, and I might want to make this scene outdoors (like a shopping center) instead of indoors (like a mall). It’s for the scene with Rin in Day 5.
53
MALL BENCH Cloudy TwilightNopeSelf-explanatory. I’m not really sure what to do about the background, and I might want to make this scene outdoors (like a shopping center) instead of indoors (like a mall). It’s for the scene with Rin in Day 5.
54
QUIET PATH Snowy AfternoonNopeBad name for a BG but I couldn’t think of anything else. This is for Lillian’s scene in Day 6. It’s important. It’s not actually part of a park, but it’s not a sidewalk either. Try to imagine a quiet path through the suburbs or behind the school, heading toward a park.
55
DOWNTOWN SQUARE Snowy NightNopeFancy downtown square. A shot of something like Times Square might be useful for multiple scenes, but that would require more than just the night shot. It might also replace one of the “city streets” ones. I don’t have any pics but I think everyone has seen shots of these squares before.
56
DOWNTOWN SQUARE Snowy NightNopeNot sure how common this is, but where I live (Toronto, Canada), we have an outdoor skating rink near the square. I attached a sample pic. This doesn’t necessarily have to be the same as the aforementioned “downtown square”. It’s only used on Christmas Eve, so do something with the lights and decorations. Also, the characters go skating for a bit, and I’m not sure if we’ll need a separate BG for that.
