And dooon't worry about the background! Your brilliant characters 'n faces tooootally balance any "bad stuff" (not that it's ever bad, honestly, I don't know what you're talking about) that you might draw. Lolz.
like anyone even see's the background with all those beautiful JIRO pixels hanging there so hot and wonderful haha!
no it looks fine, seriously. Backgrounds seem to be difficult for a lot of people (including me) I try to avoid them at all costs.
