I have really tried to do more images with realistic backgrounds as I am bored with brushes and the C4D/smudging is starting to really get over used...not that I have ever been good with that style and no offense to anyone that uses it. This was a great theme for that realism and I hope I did well!

For reference I and many others have issues with using the IMG tag and the links for those images in the gallery which is why I posted the Gallery link.
P.S. Pardon me if the Japanese is a bit off...I don't speak it so...you know!
