Blog for beautiful (and often under appreciated!) animation scenery, background and layout art! :)

I'm an animation student focusing on layout - thought this blog would be a good source of inspiration and influcence!

...hope you enjoy the scenery! <3


Seirei no Moribito / Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit Directed by Kenji Kamiyama, and created by Production I.G. This show probably has the best backgrounds out of any anime series I’ve seen. It’s basically feature film worthy art for 26 episodes.

Avatar: The Last Airbender (The Art of the Animated Series) 

Read The Art of Avatar again! I’ve read a ton of “art of” books and this is by far my favorite! Beeeeauuuutiful and inspiring! 

Plus it goes through the art of all 3 series pretty much episode by episode and shows the entire story of production, soo much concept art and its super detailed!

Thought I’d post some of my favorite images from the book (really hard to pick favorites!)
