Man catches fish thumbnails
The thumbnail sketches show my original thoughts. Not happy with the fussiness of another figure in 1. Poor dynamism of scale in 2. Angler not interacting well enough in 3. 4 was closest and note the extra scribble adjusting the angler's arm, making the whole thing cleaner and easier to 'read', shape-wise. I onced picked up a great tip from a Disney artist when I used to work on character designs, which was always imagine the drawing as a silhouette. Make good negative shapes happen and it will work so much better. The last frame with amended figure hopefully demonstrates just that.
