Crocs...

PART 01

Hi all,
I've decided to start a personal project and document the 'journey' here. The plan is to have somekind of a children book at the end of this process. I have no experience in creating a proper children book before, so any suggestions in the process will be greatly appreciated.

I'll try to post most of my progress here.. so you'll get to see -some that I considered- successful and also some crap drawings/design. :) I'll have the basic story ready and brew it further as I post more.

First.. let's drop my first design experimentation on the first character - let's call him Mr.Croc for now (I'll drop the proper name later). These are really quick sketches to explore and get the feeling of the character - still not happy with any of these.. I will try some other styles and see what works best for the story.

Charles, I hope you have a blast every step of the way. It's a fun road.

One big thing to consider is the appropriate format- like in entertainment. Here is a link to a pretty standard format from Bob Staake's website http://www.drawger.com/bobstaake/?article_id=7231

these are great croc sketches Charles! Definitely will be keeping a close eye on your journey. I have some plans to do a children's book as well, but I also have very little experience in doing so.
You're gonna do awesome man - I know it :)

I think it's a grand idea, sir!

Does old Croc get happy at the end of the story? Does he learn a lesson? Do we find out why he's so mean??? Can't wait.
