In Storyboarding and Animation, they talk about silhouette value. If you block your character completely in black, how does it read? Can you tell who it is and what they are doing... feeling? It requires the artist to think about positive and negative space wrapping around their character. Characters that have good silhouette read better on the screen. Ten times better. See my revision of Raul above.
