This is so gorgeous! I love how you did the perspective and your attention to detail. This is truly breathtaking to look at. The shading is extremely well done, and I really like how you did the lighting from the Chinese lanterns reflected into the flooring, not to mention the texture in the floor. I really enjoyed the backgrounds from Avatar and it's nice to see them so well embellished here. Wonderful job on this!
Yeah - I think the backgrounds in Spirited Away were just unbelievable, and I'd love to work somewhere with similar sensibilities. (Or anywhere. Animation salaries look huge to me after years in the RPG market...)
