"Raj" Continues to Evolve
Now that the publisher has chosen the lighter style I've done some tweaking to the characters to match the tone of softer lines. These are some more quick color sketches - I drew these right on the watercolor paper without any thumbnails as I just wanted to make sure everything is working well together including color choices and line variation - and also wanted to ensure there was good chemistry between the kids and Raj. These are outlined with plain ol' graphite- the colored pencils kept breaking every time I tried to sharpen them to an extra thin point. Graphite held up better. The white kitty, Snowball, is kind of the villain in the story - a very fun character to draw since he has such an attitude.
