This sequence contains a lot of "firsts":
- Panels 3 and 4 are the first time I draw characters from a "seven-quarters" view (from behind at a ¾ angle)
- Panel 4 is also the first time I draw a digitigrade kneeling (which is next to impossible in nature)
- Panel 5 is the first time I draw a character running on all fours with a dress (meaning I don't draw –and therefore don't know– what positions the legs are actually in)
- Panels 5 and 6 are the first time I do a "see what the character is seeing" view (put the camera behind the character, pointing it in the same direction they're looking)
- Panel 6 is also the first time I try anything close to a "from below" perspective
- Panel 8 is the first time I do a "glomp"
- Panels 8 and 9 are the first time I draw a child from one species with an adult from another, and manage to keep the proportions straight
- Panel 9 is also the first time I draw the bottom of a foot that isn't a human foot
- I'd like to say 9 is also my first attempt at showing a twirling motion, but that would be a lie
Honestly, if I didn't know I could do it, what was I thinking planning such a complicated sequence?
