Rat King work in progress

Hey guys,
I'm still alive. Sorry for not posting very often. We're in super crunch time on Yogi and will be starting 12 hour days tomorrow. I will be taking a two week break once I roll of off the show though and plan on working on some 2d animation during my vacation.

In the meantime, here's a look at a wip drawing that I started this evening. I'm hoping to get some feedback on the composition. Lol, the idea was inspired by an image of a rat king that my friend sent me in combination with listening to epic music by Two Steps From Hell. The concept is that the rat king draws in rats (against their will) by the tail to make itself larger/more powerful. I wanted to show this process somewhat from one of the victims pov. I'm not sure how I feel about the super foreground rats in brownish yellow. They weren't in my original thumbnail and I'm not sure if I like them being there. I added them since I didn't have any plans for all of the negative space above the seething rat bodies horizon line, lol. Any comments and crits are highly encouraged to help make the composition stronger.

Thanks a bunch! =D

Hey Joclyn,
I just wanted to let you know you're a huge inspiration. I found your website because you were featured on Animation Mentor, and I'm interested in entering the animation field myself one day (my dream job? Disney Animation Studios). I don't often see other women of color interested in the same things so you're great encouragement! Thanks for being awesome and I wish you the best of luck in your career! :)
