The Deer Sketches

So, onward I truck. I've been sitting on the idea for my next story for some time, but I think I'm finally starting to get it. It's going to star a deer and his faithful friend, a lightning bug! Hey, the story's still in development, so who knows what could happen. Below are a few of the "research" sketches I've been doing. Unfortunately, the only real deer I ever see around here are dead on the side of the road. While that would make for an interesting subject matter, I don't think I could stand the smell. So, these are from books and my BFF, Google.

Hope you like them and, as always, please let me know what you think! Thanks!

Quotable Quote

"More than any other major personality trait, optimism is a matter of practice."
-Kathleen McGowan

...in other words, I've now sent out my latest portfolio to almost every animation studio I could find and still nothing. So, do I keep on trucking and stay optimistic? I guess so.
