slapped a mask on the bush, unsure about it just now. Oh and the ink trail following the boy is still to be tweaked... but another step closer to the final thing! :)

Thanks to everyone who got back to me about scene 06! I took all the comments on board and have spent the last couple days fixing and finalising the scene. It looks great now, and I've passed it onto Erin for clean-up.
Here's the scene with the new dog and ball layers:
I fixed the slide on the Dog's feet which itself re-timed the run, so now the whole thing happens a lot faster, which a lot of people felt should happen. Because of this I then had to re-time the ball as the Dog began to overtake it. I then re-drew the Dog Walker (who I've affectionately renamed Doug Walker after my dear friend, Doug Walker) to match the new frames, and altogether they look like this:
Finally, I added in the Girl layer to see how everything looks so far, and it looks AWESOME! The new timing of the Dog, etc, couldn't have worked out better! Very chuffed with how it's all looking now:
Just a couple of short, finalised layers from the wonderful (read: bane of my life) scene 03, the girl on the see-saw scene. The first is the tumble of the teddy bear as it falls off the see-saw:
The second is the ball which slams into the back of the Girl's head:
I love animating these short wee layers, they make you feel like you're getting a lot done and ticking a lot of boxes. I drew myself up a more precise list of What Needs To Get Done, which looks a little like this:
The lack of ticked boxes scares me. Wish us luck. 5 weeks to go.
