Now that I have the first full-length Pinky Panda Bear book behind me, I am working on a book about Snailiarty. This is a shorter and simpler book about moderation. He likes mints. He eats too many mints in a short time. He learns a lesson.
I've had a lot of fun with the concept phase for this one because I can take a lot more chances digitally and not have to worry about running out of paper or paint.
Here are some of the ideas that I've come up with.
I'll get started on the roughs for the book tomorrow, and it'll be Snailiarty with the fuel gauge. I came up with the idea after my mom suggested maybe a compass on his shell. So it was her idea, sort of. I'm still not sure if I am in love with the line art style, but if I do it all and then realize I want to do it a different way, then it'll be easy enough. All it takes is time. Slow and steady. Snail on, folks Snail on.
