I did lots of progress with my animated shorts over the course of the last two month. Most importantly I decided to make it 2D. And since I love the aesthetics of old-school MGM shorts I decided to go for a painted background. I wanted it to be simple and rough. Here you see what the whole composition will roughly look with characters when composited.

The background itself. It’s not easy to make a simple shot like a puddle took colorful and not too distracting. The focus should be on the characters.
