Though it isn't quite there I think its on its way. With this new approach I am thinking about going back into my painted textures and draining them of detail instead making it more hand drawn with scribbly lines and much vibrant colours as the renders currently are washed out.
NOTE: as this is rendered in maya software I need to smooth the model with polysmooth - a button for smoothing or dummy model is yet to come
Things to do-
- re paint textures for more hand drawn style
- increase colour vibrancy
- continue to play with blending modes in AE
