The Evolution Continues

Character development is hard work, but so exciting!  Love watching a personality come to life.

Chicken Sketches

Hi everyone, I talked to my agent yesterday about the flower hat bear story, and it wasn't her favorite.  But she wants me to keep working on a chicken story I had written back when she first signed me.  It's really taking shape, and I think I'm close to having the final draft.

For right now I'm trying to figure out the main character's design and have decided to base her on the classic Hollywood actors such as Sophia Loren and Audrey Hepburn (oh, and the glasses are a Jackie Kennedy-ish style).  My agent also wants the story laid in thumbnail sketches to get a feeling for the pacing, which I'll post as well.  I'm so excited! :)

A Little Digital Coloring

This will ultimately be in watercolor, but the digital is good for figuring out colors.

This is called the ostrich defense.  If you can't see it, it's not there.

Sassafras is a little character I've been working on.  Her character design will probably evolve over the next few days.  Despite her love of tutus she does not dance.  She just likes the look of the tutu lol.

No Use

I want a tutu for bad days, so I can sit like this on the floor.
