When we were doing the group chat earlier, I mentioned trying out Rene Gruau's style as our animation style. I was introduced to his work by Maritza. He is a fashion illustrator working with traditional media. His painting style is very unique. He uses flowy and heavy contour line. He strategically colors only a few objects in the scene to guide the viewer's eyes to the focal point. There's a lot of ways his style can be implemented, and this is my one attempt at it. I will try to do more. Let me know what you guys think. Thanks.
This is the specific illustration that I was mainly looking at when working on this. The one Keith posted earlier was also his work..
