    Stork character doodles. Trying to come up with a 'short' stork mascot without making him look like a dodo. It's hard!

    It's the beak, I think. Has to be way thinner. Google stork images.

    You're spot on, @Inka. Totally agree with you there. Unfortunately it's one of those specific request from the client. Hmm...

    You can draw one with the correct beak and give them a comparison. Unless they're fine with the bird's look right now.

    Perfect idea, Inka. Louis, ultimately, you're the artist — the visual communication expert — and if your client wants a stork, yet what they're asking you to draw looks like a dodo, then it's your responsibility to yourself — AND to your client AND their target audience — to convince them that their requests are not right for the job at hand. It's a tough balancing act sometimes, because often, pleasing clients means either sacrificing your artistic integrity, or making decisions that you know unequivocally are just plain wrong. It's a situation we face on *almost* every job. Good luck!!

    Very well said, @Jon! I think I have finally convinced my client not to use this stork idea. We're going to a totally different direction this time, so I'm happy. :D

  7. A 'gift box' character is decided for the brand's mascot. Now to explore more style and details for this lil' guy.
