Adjusting drawings to work on ArtSteps

After taking photos of my work for ArtSteps, I realised I won’t be able to imply the art to the wall without it being the shape and size of the image including any background. Before Covid-19 the drawings would have been fixed straight onto the wall without a squared off background but attempting this virtually is a lot more difficult.

I have used photoshop to edit out the background however, I still ended up with it being white. When I tried adding it into ArtSteps it looked better than before but, it still made it look square and almost framed. I thought about using frames on ArtSteps to create a border around the drawings but, I felt this would take attention away from the ripped edges and would defeat the objective of them. I found by enlarging the drawings, it helped with this problem but still was not perfect. Unfortunately I am unable to resolve this problem as the only final show I have in virtual.
