New Background Paitings

Here are some BGs I've completed. I've arrived at an art style that I like, but I'm worried that it will take me too long to paint all of them like this. I'm hoping that I'll be able to recycle a lot of BG elements and do color adjustments for different seasons. I'll have to take whatever shortcuts I can.

And here is what I imagine the fully rendered film should look like:

This frame was composited and rendered from Toon Boom, and is kinda what I'm aiming for as the final look.

So, feedback and comments please?

Duck Boy Officially Time Locked!!!

Here is the time locked cut of Duck Boy:

Duck Boy Time Locked! from Bryan Young on Vimeo.

Excluding any small corrections and cleaning, I'm basically done with all the raw animation! So I guess it's pretty much all post production from here on out. Clean up, coloring, and compositing. Yey for the hundreds of backgrounds I have to paint!!

The Last Shot

So I'm pretty much much finished with all the raw animation now. I was going to post the new cut of the film, but Premiere is being a pain in the butt and keeps crashing my renders, so I'll have to post it later. I'm basically picture locked except for the last shot of the movie. It has to look good since it's the last shot of the film, and my money shot, but I've animated it twice now and something just doesn't seem right about it. I'm posting it in hopes that I can get some suggestions and a notion in the right direction.

Without further ado here is the clip for your viewing enjoyment:
