While the others appear over-crowded, you seem to have found the balance between not having enough detail and having too much.

Oh my gosh... That video was beautiful! I promise you if you keep making things like that and such nice touching videos you will become a legend. I just love the music and on how he was building a home for himself, alone, in the sky and remembering the painstaking past of building it! Keep up the good work! You'll go far! -The Xpert
