character tryouts

This is what my desk looks like as I try to find the right character for the new book that I'm working on. It's a very fun part of the process but it's also really difficult. You have to find the right shapes and details to tell the story correctly.

Once I finish this stage, I try the character out in a few settings to see how they hold up. Sometimes they do, other times I need to go back to the drawing board.

Is this going to be the girl for the gold fish babysitting book? She is pretty adorable.
