Hey everyone! I'm working on a scene for a short animation and I was hoping to get some feedback regarding its composition. The sketch of the scene is supposed to represent a table full of food, a grandma looking down at the grandson, and the grandson blindfolded sitting down at the table. The whole scene is going to be a quick joke about how usually grandmas expect their grandchildren to eat a huge amount of food when they visit. :D My only concern is the fact that the wall is not parallel to the edge of the table, which I found to be very uncommon in dining room references. This might make the scene look odd to the viewer. However, it could be that I'm totally overthinking this... Also, the items on the wall are not completely random since they contain a small easter egg for a future episode, so they do have some importance. This is one of the reasons why I wanted the items on the wall to be easy to understand and not distorted. I would highly appreciate your thoughts on this. Is the setting easy enough to understand and pleasant to look at? Or does the orientation of the wall throw everything completely off? Thank you!
Hey everyone! Complete newbie here. I've been working on a background for a small amination series I'm making and I came across a problem. The drawing is supposed to be a snowy mountain peak with some tracks in the foreground and behind it should be a deep valley followed by some faraway mountains. I've added the reference image for clarification. My problem is that the valley and mountains in the background don't really come across as intended - really far away. The background is not 100% finished. I still have to add some clouds and a flag on top of the snowy mountain in the foreground, but I don't think that will improve anything. Any suggestions on how I might be able to emphasize the idea of "deep valley" and "faraway mountains" while keeping the cartoony/simplistic style? Thank you!
