Minimalist Flat Cartoon Background?

I posted this in another forum so it's copied and pasted

"Okay so Iím a newbie at Maya, I go to school for animation but I like playing around in the software.

Iím teying to go for this type of lineless minimalist (Iím guessing low poly?) type of style:

Iím more going for the PPG, Dexters Lab type of look but just to get across what I mean I looked for more shows that show it off better.

I know these are most likely created in Photoshop, or hand painted/pastels but I feel like there should be a way to imitate it? I modeled what I wanted in Maya and didnít like the renders I have (Arnold was too realistic and Maya Hardware 2.0 wasnít really what I wanted)...

So I put the room into Cinema 4D! Did some high luminary cel shading and got this:

As you can see itís in the same value and it has the desire flatness but thereís something not quite right.. should I add textures? Is there something I can do in maya? What should I do to hit it more spot on?"

(Sorry if this isnít the forum for this by the way).

I notice that there is no 2-point converging perspective.

I would try to recreate exactly one of the scenes for practice.
