These are some images of sketches and early stages of characters and backgrounds. The storyboards are created using tonal values so we know how light affects every shot. Then we select the colour palette of the episode according to the mood, characteristics of the world and time of the day.
As you can see, the patterns of most of the elements in episode 01 are now different. Things evolved little by little until we were happy with Miniambra's world.
