After chasing down some feedback out of class, I settled on the style of the 1977 Rankin/Bass animation of the Hobbit.
This has already created some interesting challenges.
There are absolutely no females in the movie to reference - Not even one in the background
There are also no children or anyone that can even really pass as youth
This is going to be a challenge since 2 of my characters afll in these. I began looking into other Rankin/Bass productions to see how I can assimilate some of the characters from those into the style of the Hobbit.
