Roughs, finished (again)



Well I finally finished the roughs for my 4-book series, again. (If you remember, I had to redraw the entire series because the original characters, elephants, were deemed 'unsellable' by the publisher's marketing team)

so, once elephants, they have magically anthropomorphized (OK, I know that's not actually a word but can you think of a better one?) all the way into humans.

Starting on all the final paintings now, but also looking forward to a bit of a break over this, the season of silly...... hope you get one too!

I wonder why the elephants would not be a good idea. I think they are incredibly adorable! I really like the kids too! I'm sure the book is going to be great!

I think they look cute either way. Darn clients... can't make up their mind for nothin'! May be why self publishing is on the rise! :P

Thank you everyone. Yes I think I like them as much as kids as I did as elephants so that's a good thing!
