Hey there, Kiddos!
Today I sketched a lot of character art for how we want Little Raindrop to look in his book. Little Raindrop was kind enough to pose and make faces for me for inspiration, and he did a swell job! Our next step is to decide which style we all like best, though Little Raindrop can't make up his mind; he says one style looks more like his mom and the other looks more like his dad! You can see what I did here on my blog!
I've also been working on a scene for an Ocean Habitat! I don't want to spoil the surprise but I can tell you this much: one of the underwater creatures in the ocean scene has eight wriggling arms! But, shhh! Don't tell anyone I told you that!
Keep on conserving! ;D
