3D backgrounds for 2D?

for 2D games I think I might switch to using 3D backgrounds. That way I can just make whatever I need easily. Also I have a lot places that are integrated into the mall but it’s really hard to find backgrounds to use for that.

I’ve basically fleshed out several areas of the mall here and posted some example pics of how I can make use of different angles for each area. Feel free to post thoughts.

I want to do the GemCo academy the same way also so everything can be consistent.
