UPDATE: Some tweaks added after feedback.
A second concept piece of the Ling Zhi mushroom
I felt the need to create a second concept piece to better illustrate the ling zhi mushroom and its possible environment, as the previous felt a little hard to read in hindsight. While I want to maintain a dynamism in my animation, a shot like this may perhaps be necessary to establish the scene.
With a good range of concepts, I feel confident to move on with storyboarding next in order.
