Thanks Mike. I wanted to include light bleed but didn't think it would be
possible without adding a bunch of spotlights, BW's suggestion sounds like it
might do the trick though! Putting some decor on the wall is a good idea, my
intention was for it to be a brick wall but BW is right that it resembles cinder
blocks. The overall design is an amalgamation of a bunch of different references
so it doesn't recreate a specific location, but even so there's plenty to tweak
when I get around to it!
