These are my rough sketches for the locations in my story- the artist's studio and the zoo. For the artist studio, I like 5. What I had in mind when designing this is a dome shape ceiling where the room will get its light source from. I tried not to be generic though it was challenging because it is a room. I added a small stage at the center of the room because as my character is a perfectionist, he would want to step onto this stage of his, blocking all other distractions and just paint.
As for the Zoo, I had more of like an aerial view. This is to ensure that I am aware of my surroundings as it will make it easier when I start to paint from a specific angle where the event takes place.
