I've seen images online of little box people like this. Can't wait to see a little animation made from these guys, looking good so far.

No, I thought you looked young in your video, but your youtube profile has you at 44 and living in the US.

Sure wouldn't want to piss off the green box he looks big and angry .
On that same pic I see that the rendered " floor" is blueish whilest de background( which is probably comped in is yellowish I would match the colors a bit more.
( keep in mind that the sun gives a hard direct yellowish light and depending on what the weather is, the atmosphere tends to give a blueish indirect light or a greyish one ( if the weather is crappy like here in the Netherlands) with soft shadows.

I don't know if the images are actual shots from your movie, but if it is, try to keep te characters on the same side of the screen on image 2 the yellow cardbox character is on the left while on the 3rd image it is on the right.

Looks promising though

I agree about the colors of snow, but with the images 2 and 3, the yellow box is on the left because it's a shot from behind, then a shot from the front would make him be on the right. So that's fine the way it is.

Glad you agree about the snow

I am not saying it is physically wrong that the characters switch sides it's not wise to do it when it comes to storytelling it makes it chaotic, I believe it's called negative axis or something like that, see the schematic image I have attached, when you stay out of the nogo area with your camera the characters, or in this case blue en red stay at their respective sides, hope this is clear if not watch some tv and look at a program with some dialoque you"ll see that camera people all around the world adhere to this rule ( except Bollywood those guys do everything LOL)
