More stylisation, particularly focusing on colour. I'm not so sure about the Art Nouveau influence (except in #2 where it works stylishly), but I have very much taken the emphasis on circular composition from it, which I feel is working well.
Tom noted that my work was evocative of Disney's Fantasia, which I will confess I haven't seen and brace myself for the lynch mob. I looked it up and it's definitely something I'll think about as I work.
#12 was going somewhere, but I don't know where. It kind of got lost along the way.

My visual concept, which is 'equal parts menacing and whimsical', to make the locales the protagonists visit reflect their situation, i.e. being kept prisoner in a gilded cage.

I have also started forcing myself to work within compositional boundaries rather than just drawing freely, which I think has resulted in creating scenes rather than isolated elements and has vastly increased the quality. They're still very, very loose, but hopefully they're readable.

I've been reading through reviews of King Kong and I'm really, really struggling to see what they see in it. Yes, for the time it was a marvel of special effects, but 'Kong is humanised through animation'? Really? Am I just being dense and unable to pick up on subtle eye-movement cues? I didn't see Kong being humanised at any point in the movie. Am I just 'not getting it'?

And the petrified forest again. Starting to look at putting the trees into a scene, but it's still a bit clunky so I'll have to work on streamlining it.
