This week we worked on color passes for our characters. I worked our soldier scarecrow concept. To fall in the lines of Tim Burton a little more I redesigned the scarecrows musket to look more like a blunderbuss with a scope attached as well as a spiral bayonette.

To the barn I made additions to the tiling of the roof and added a loft inside.
