Supervlieg, Jesterspawn, you guys are awesome- thanks for those suggestions. I could have used you last week!
Time is up for me so I picked one element to fix because it was the most alarming- the blending together of the two characters. Hopefully his helps.
The plants are a real sore spot- they really needed more research and work. Same with the clouds- and I actually had good ref for them that I just haven’t been able to find. Crap. Time to let go.
