Did some more work.
Wondering - should I keep it simple and have a very pared back background - just a slight suggestion of a yellow brick road?
Or continue with the more elaborate background?
Time constraints to consider also - I doubt I will be able to go into much detail on background stuff so any tips would be handy - am I heading in the right direction?
If I DO keep the background, I know I will have to bring up the detail and contrast on the character to make sure she stands out more than she does right now.
