Using Maya I've blocked out a basic shot of a garden/forest scene to paint over to see if my 2D on 3D animation would work. By doing this it has helped to see what my idea is.
I set up a camera to take some shots of how it may zoom into the section where my character will be telling the fern life cycle story.
Far away shot, going to zoom in on the log where the snail will be moving along.
The view on the Right is where the snail is going to be telling the Fern Life Cycle on pinned up leafs against the tree.
