    Hey Tom,

    I like the idea of you setting up the spore dispersal as some kind military exercise - I can see how this could work very nicely. In terms of 'animation' styles however, I'm going to suggest that you take a closer look at the 'style' of the most successful animations of late, as I think this might be a project best conceptualised via Illustrator's pen tool and flat colour, as opposed to anything too painterly; for example, check out the following, and you'll quickly see what I mean:

    Also - take a look at these animation backgrounds - again, note strong form and flat, banded colour:

    I think, in order to pursue this idea, you should develop your next set of thumbnails using limitation; limitation of colours, limitation of shading, and simplification of forms - think like you're making animation for television, as opposed to film - line art, flat colour, strong, simple shapes, consistent design etc.
