All right. So here I am talking about The Snail Who Ate Too Many Mints again. I've decided to redo the style for the final images of Snailiarty and Snailarina because of speed of process as well as my confidence in the style. I love digital painting, but in order to keep things moving, I am going with this simpler style so I can move on to the next project. I believe (fingers crossed) the dummy is actually done now.
There was a section of the story that was funny to me because it was confusing, but then I remembered how irritating something like that is when I am reading a story with my girls and they want me to explain something way too complicated for someone their age. I am all for keeping the language at a level that challenges kids a little, but getting into circular logic with a book aimed at 4-6 year olds is probably not a good plan. I mean, I did it in a book for adults and I can assure you that it didn't work out well there either.
Anyway, here are Snailiarty and Snailarina hugging it out. Weekend's almost here, deeds!. Hooray!
