these were done for stardust entertainment in Berlin, best city on the planet. They were hand painted by these really talented brush-heads and used as backdrops for 3d characters for a show that I don't think ever took off called Stevie Stardust. Maybe it did I never saw it, but it got a write up in Animation Magazine back in the day and we all thought we were headin for super stardom. One of the guys though, Ben Dishart, got to work on Lord of the Rings on the other side of the planet. Lucky *@™t!
