    I dunno the studio nor the character... but this one is so nice...

    Gives me a so calm and nostalgic feeling.

    I guess extraction was a long time one, right?! Anyway, the only thing that seems to have a bit more work (at least for me) is the floor where she is standing... it`s too raw ... or how can I say ... there is something missing like, more messed patterns or cracks would help... but all in all this is a really good wall!
