An Ode To the Unsung Art of Anime Backgrounds

Backdrops are called backdrops for a reason—they're designed to fade against the focus of a particular scene. But as a new single-serving Tumblr called Anime Backgrounds proves, sometimes the best art is to be found behind the characters.

An Ode To the Unsung Art of Anime Backgrounds. <--- Unsung?!? This attention to detail gives me chills!

My transparent body. They way I look to myself. Inside a mental hospital which I would LOVE to be!!!

This reminds me of the house built above the railroad tracks near Chickamauga Dam in Chattanooga TN.

This really caught my eye. I've always been a fan of collages and this one really stands out to me. The way the body and the background work together but still create contrast is what I like most about it.
