I am a thorough and detailed person. I think things through and like things I do to make sense. This is why recently I was inspired by a video I watched talking about layering many subliminal details in a scene to make it more meaningful or symbolic. I'm going a little crazy with it right now. What's my character's sprit animal? How can I show that subtly? Am I being pretentious by putting so much underlying meaning? So I'd like to ask, how many small details do you think is too much? Also how can you tell when you make your "subtle detail" into something that screams "ASK ME WHAT IT MEANS!" I'm lucky that I'm limited natually due to my setting or else I'd probably go really crazy.
