It really is a beautiful piece of art. I really love the details you added, like the water flowing out of the vase. I don't think that you know about it, but it reminds me of the moments on Pottermore where you can explore each picture/scene and discover so many little things and your works also include so many details that you can discover (even if they're not animated). So great work.

I would have thought the streets of France would not be so "Beauty and the Beast"-ish in regards to cleanliness. You have to take into consideration that the Medieval times were before 1300 (afterwards it's called Renascence) and the main disease in that time was the black plague which sprung into flourishing in these countries due to... you guessed it, filth and poor living conditions and hygiene. And where else would that be obvious other than the streets. Here it's just an idealized version, just like in "Beauty and the Beast".
