From concept to finished design; here are a few images from the production of Hayao Miyazaki’s Spirited Away (2001). You can get a nice look at the work put into a single production background image starting with a sketch, a full colored and detailed comp; which is then eventually drawn and painted again as the final image used for the film.

Considering that the average film has over 1,000 different shots; you can start to appreciate the work that goes into hundreds of fully painted backgrounds for an animated film. And these images aren’t even showing the work that goes into scouting locations, finding references, or even the initial thumbnail sketches and comps for one single background image!
