I’m developing some concepts for a short story for under 10 year olds, and was hoping for some feedback on the development of it.
Simply put, the story is about a boy who draws a picture for his parents of a cat, but upon him offering it to them as a present, his mother freaks out due to the markers he was using having marked the floor. The kid (Oliver) runs away into the night, where he meets the living incarnation of his cat drawing (Kat) whilst alone and scared in the snow. Together they go on an adventure through the neighbourhood and Kat teaches Oliver that while families sometimes argue, that doesn’t mean they don’t love each other, which allows Oliver to forgive his family and go home.
I’ve already worked on the characters and am looking into some sculpts as well as animation tests and background designs. Any feedback would be much appreciated. The work so far has been hand drawn line art with colouring in photoshop. More to follow soon
