Following a Train of Thought

For the short animation I've been working on, all of the action will take place inside a train. The design of which is an elaborate blend of Rococo with a turn of the bizarre.

I've been painting up colour/light tests to see how the train would blend together. The first painting I have is of the first door the protagonist discovers.

It's a break from his linear progression down the train, a path leading off and it consumes his curiosity, forcing him to try and overcome the door's defences.

Second painting in progress is one of the main seating carriages. Notices the continuation of the plush red carpet which runs throughout the train.

Both WIP's but I feel I've been holding them to my chest a bit too long. Any thoughts and suggestions would be appreciated.
