An Animation Project

Hi, and thanks for taking the time to read this. I am currently working on a short animation based on stories and characters that I have been very passionate about for some time. I haven’t done many animations besides a few really short tests, so this one is kind of my way of challenging myself. It’s supposed to be hopefully over 1 minute long. The reason I am posting here is because I was hoping people would be willing to give suggestions about how I might make the scenes more visually appealing. I have the first set/scene nearly finished, but it just doesn’t look as stunning as it probably could. Still working on an art style as I go, but I know that I don’t want it to look too realistic. I’ do use quite a bit of the velvet shader to achieve a cartoonish look. Here is what I have:


I’ve made some changes to the scene since, so here is the new render. I’m still working on the city backdrop.
