    The map looks great as it is already! :)

    If I could make any other additions it would be:

    Good use of resizing different layers to give that depth of field look. However, if you're planning on zooming in on your character during the actual animation itself, you may need to adjust the position of the trees in the very front or consider adding more of them so that their presence may be noticeable.

    Maybe you could give it some more "life" by maybe adding some more trees/bushes/flowers in the areas that seem a little blank. Monsters in the background idling or passing by in the background is also a nice addition I personally like to do.

    *You could also add something in the middle (between the background and foreground).

    These aren't really NECESSARY additions ^ , but it will make your map a little more interesting to look at. Regardless, great job!

    *EDIT: Here's a picture example!

    Thank you! I appreciate all the advice :D! I'll work on it, I was considering fading the very front trees when I zoom it in but I'll try moving them around first, and I like the monsters in the background idea!

    Might I also suggest a color filter. When it comes to color giving things practically the same hue is pleasing to the eyes, even if it's just a hair.
    (This is a screen shot of your map, so the quality is jacked up, but you can get the concept)

    Like Paco said, the map is solid how it is, but sometimes it's the little things that can make a big difference

    What is the animation exactly? A fighting animation? If so, then the map perfectly fits the environment, simple without too much detail distracting us. Good stuff Hope, looking forward to seeing more maps from you! :)
