This set piece was originally a very different looking photo from pexels.com:
I had a lot of fun working on the artwork for this. It was half work, half, relaxing hobby. In fact, in some ways it may have been much the same enjoyment that my grandparents had working with miniatures as a hobby. Granted, they couldn’t click undo and the whole thing had to physical work in a 3D space with gravity. But it does take some skill manipulating digital items to position them to all work together for a fun scene. I highly recommend creating your own pieces from scratch if you can. But you are more than welcome to remix the dollhouse we used.
And for some extra joy, the sugar plum that was seen in the film is included.
If you have seen the film, the scene starts wide and zooms up close. The reason this works is because the photo is so large that the zoomed in section is still enough pixels wide to remain HD once zoomed. Otherwise, it would pixelate.
