One of the opening images!
couldn’t help myself - had to put paint to paper. This penciling is just Not as satisfying. Page 24/42…
One of the New main characters I’m working with, a fledgling. This is her at home, I imagine somewhere on Boston street, being tucked in by her mom, a cigarette-smoking (that’s as bad as it gets here) pigeon (the fledglings, like the real life village kids, hate cigarettes). Note one of Lily’s feathers in her side table. She finds that at the beginning of the story when Lily gets chased down Germantown Ave.
These dogs seem more realistic.. The upper left one will have smaller eyes. Realizing how much eyes can change a personality (like in people). Going to use this when making the general village neighbors, differentiating between pigeons.
