Very beautiful and magical piece, wow! 18 I find the use of this color (This type of blue) a magnificent choice, it’s as if it throws the viewer straight to his own subconscious, I also really loved the folds on the grayish white cloaks... Fantastic work! 13

They look like mourners as much as guardians, which makes me think of Grave of the Fireflies.

:-) Joel N. Barkley replies: "A very good movie, if however sad. I never thought of this piece in that way before, I can see where one might have that feeling. They’re not sad or morose at all. Really! 2"
