    1. i love you and i want to see you lol jkim kidding anyway this looks like a lot of work

  1. nice man. though there's one thing i'd suggest. the eiffel tower looks a bit chipped in places, which gives it a sharp look as compared to the surroundings. maybe you should paint over that part or smudge it a bit, so that it looks more blended
