The Rents

This is more or less my dad, but with a little extra gut:

Hope he's flattered, but my father just happened to fit into the "dorky-cute" profile of the character.

For the mom, she's a stern, assertive, but compassionate cross between my friend's mom and Hillary Clinton:

Did a rough estimate of how many pages the story was going to be - came up with 138. Yikes! Gotta figure out a way to cut down the pages or draw a lot faster. Maybe both.

Some interesting trends already though - the dialogue is quite sparse, and there's a roughly 30 page section without any. Also, about half of the dialogue is in Spanish.


8:30 - 10:00 - environment design - house, bedroom, props
10:00 - 12:00 - file claim, organize portfolio, correspondence, essay
12:00 - 3:00 - revise script, create loose breakdowns, snack
3:00 - 4:00 - lunch
4:00 - 6:00 - breakdowns, environment design
6:00 - 9:00 - gym, dinner, shower
9:00 - 11:00 - scan, ink, blog

I chuckled at the image of the father--your father. Could you make his sleeves just a bit longer so he won't look quite so dorky--or do you need tht dorkiness? Mom
