Sayaka Ouhito's work reminded me of the backgrounds from Ni no Kuni in the mundane world. I loved Ni no Kuni for its beautiful 2D Studio Ghibli backgrounds combined with 3D additions from Level 5. I want to take the use of lighting from Ouhito's work alond with the amount of detail. As I would be making an animation, I may have to redraw the same background from a different angle, so I would need to ensure that the content of the backgrounds composition is not too complicated.
