:P this was a little bit of a tribute to ghibli and their worlds and more so, how their world building has given birth and lent itself to my personal project Obliskura. Cheers!

Why does this give me a slighy Miyazaki vibe?

 Because it was painted as a low key tribute to ghibli background painters. :3

Where did you draw your inspiration for this piece from? Is there any context for this painting, or is it a single piece without any connection to other works?

I very much like this idea and the way you've executed it. Lovely colors too! Have you considered making this available as a print? I bet a bunch of people would like to have a copy of this on their walls, myself included. :)

Creating such an intriguing picture as this and not providing some sort of story should be punishable by death.

Wow, I really like this. For some reason, it brings to mind some of the fantastical stuff from Studio Ghibli. It just has that feel to it, and yet, it's incredibly unique at the same time.

Beautiful work. :aww:

Whoa - really cool concept.  I like how the trees, clouds, and rocks all work from a similar texturing style.  I'd love to see your take on the inside looking out.
