Nothing like spending an unnecessary amount of time overthinking a simple background just because you want it to be just right, and realizing those several hours could have been just 10 minutes if you weren't such a nitpick. 5 Hours, just to complete a single background that may only last 15 seconds in the final render.
I went through the effort of rebuilding the lobby in Minecraft just to take screenshots for 3D reference perspective, only to toss it out anyway, since it seemed too "3D like", and that looked ugly to me.
Trying to make the oh so special ice cream Sunday that's in my head, and applying it to drawing is a battle I just can't win. Why am I even trying so hard? I have no idea, since I know I'll be extremely critical for my first time 2D animation, and then a few years later I'll look back at this and be like "Man I can do so much better now."
Ya know, I'm just hopin' when I post this to Newgrounds that I'll look at this newpost afterward, and think I was paranoid.
