Just a little update on Rp_Nippon.
Pretty much worked on the beach and several other parts, you can really see parts where I reference animes in this.
Is from Clannad. I really loved the ambiance present in Clannad where it generates a small village feel, but it does it so with so much green and terrain. Presenting this mix in the map will be costly and time consuming, but I think it really helps generate an ambiance.
This is from AIR, another Key anime. You can see the inspiration I had from this image is in how to present the transition between the ocean and the city. It really has an intresting mix of old vs. new in the presentation of the ocean town in AIR.
