TIGER: WIP feedback requested

I wanted a sweet story that conveyed a heartwarming scene of little tigers going through a coming of age ritual in which an elder paints their stripes. I picture this taking place in an ancient village with Chinese architecture and influence. Think Kung Fu Panda.
I like the idea of a grizzled grandfatherly type doing the painting.
Robe or no robe? Straw hats or no straw hats?
Spot illustration or fleshed out hut?

@chrisaakins really creative concept. Love it!
My answer to your questions is: it depends on what story you want to tell and where you want the focus.
Is the story all about the characters and what they're doing? If robes, hats, and backgrounds aren't needed to tell the story, then you may want to consider leaving them out because they could be distracting or raise questions for the viewer.
But if the storytelling hinges on tigers inhabiting an ancient fantasy world, and the stripe painting is a rite of passage, then it might not be all about the characters and you might need robes and background to fully tell that story.

Very cool concept, I like the robes and hats I think they add to story especially if you are opting out of a background and I like the idea of the elder but he’s gotta have pi mei beard! (Kill bill)can’t wait to see how it develops
Super cute! I like the robes and hats.
I'm thinking a vignette with the hut/architecture in a pale background.

Yes to the robes and hat... they add story depth to the image.
I kind of like it as a spot illustration. I could actually see adding a couple more tigers that just got finished and having them admiring their stripes as they walk off to the right.
