You are absolutely AMAZING. We have no words! Imagery is splendid and the details - I mean - when the bubble is exploding and transforms into metal; and the movement of the pretty snake. We are full of joy and happiness today. Thank you for your fabulous work, I would love to hug you all right now! We are very lucky we met and now we can say to all the world, you are the best creative studio ever!

“As I mentioned it was very well received, with various comments being made on its realism, lighting and quality. “Very lifestyle”, “Painterly feeling” and “great attention to “colour temperature” are some of the (paraphrased) complements that were mentioned.
