Most of the work I did in the studio previous year was backgrounds for the new cinema-length animated movie "The Case of Hana & Alice" (花とアリス殺人事件 Hana to Alice Satsujin Jiken) written and directed by Shunji Iwai.
The backgrounds where based on photos but we had to do a lot of editing, and matte painting before using them as a base for watercolour-like final pictures. Also some scenes required the backgrounds to be painted from scratch (for example I painted the ballet class based only on some references from the previous movie). 
Below you can see some example screenshots from the trailer and pictures taken from the movie's website. You have to see the movie for the rest of almost a hundred backgrounds I did.
