Guideline sketch = http://www.truploader.com/view_upload.php?id=53986

So far = http://www.truploader.com/view_upload.php?id=430900

I'd like detail suggestions, like certain objects to add.

when it's finished, I'm going to add light sources and shadows to everything, I'm going to put minimum background movement of things like fog, bugs, and maybe water.


Also: If anyone has a request on a background that they would like created, just create a Guide for it like I did, and post it. Don't include stick figures and their motion lines. Just do the background, if I like it, I'll make it.

Is this liked more than a huge tree in the way? http://www.truploader.com/view_upload.php?id=912477

Not bad so far.. I just don't like how there's gonna be a huge tree in the middle of the screen, it's gonna block a lot of things. :S unless you're shifting it away later in the animation.

That's exactly what I was thinking when I put it there.
I'll probably end up moving it to the right side of the screen.

lol, now there is a huge foreground blocking the whole bottom of the screen. Design-wise, it would be best to scroll away from the tree in the middle, so that the main action is as clearly visible as possible.

I like the tree being behind the stage like it is now. I'll do something in the future.

You say they look wierd, but you don't know how? That's original.
It's a good thing that I'm going to change them, isn't it? I'm going to revamp the entire thing once more when I have this layer of detail completed. So basically, this is another guide for the more detailed version.

Sorry, I just dont know how to put it. Other than that. I guess the outlines are a bit too thick, but if this is just another guide for a more detailed background I guess it doesnt matter.

I like the thickness of the outlines for the trees and the grass stage.
The rocks are a bit too small I guess for that size outline. I'll do something when I redo it again.

I think the background is pretty good, If your using it as an opening... and then shifting the tree....

I loled at the rectangular rock. Just make sure that your more detailed background doesnt have a really thin outline. (it makes stuff look weird)
