I have a simple idea of mice trying to scare a cat. He is at home preparing his pumpkins and mice dress up in costumes and are trying to get into his house.
This is the first I am trying to do it properly (value, colour decisions) so I am looking forward to your valuable comments and advice
PS: I don't know yet if I am going to ink it and submit to monthly contest or just go with digital for my own purposes.
I went further. Perhaps its more readable now Lets say its at value stage... If you have any advice for me, don't hesitate

@aska Just be careful that the pumpkins closer to the window don't distract from the main focal point. They are not the main part of the story, the cat is.
@mf-james thanks you for your advice It sounds good
Until I read your description, I didn't really know what was going on in this picture. I think it might be better to approach this from a different angle, and showing the mice inside and scaring the cat. Especially if this isn't going to be a comic or a storyboard and just a single illustration, you might want to skip to the punchline so that we know exactly what's going on. I love the idea, and it's such a cute idea! Can't wait to see how this progresses.
@jbrannan hey, thanks for input however i went quite far now and would prefer to make smaller changes, if possible
so if what i done below doesn't work (still a draft), perhaps i could put a sign on the right bottom, which will be pointing left and saying 'cat scare point' or smith like that. What do you think?
