WIP Milking Old Cranky Pygmy Goat (Misunderstood Monster)
OKAY, getting a late start on the Misunderstood Monster, but better late than never.
This concept is from personal experience. I was raised on a farm and one of my chores was to milk the goats. When I was younger, I remember being kinda scared going out in the night to milk. So here I have Squirrel going out to her little barn to milk her cranky old Pygmy goat. She kinda lets her imagination go wild when she sees her goat's shadow.
Tell me which thumbnails are your favs and any suggestions on compositions:

I'm torn between 5 and 6. Though I love the impassive goat face in 6, 5 has some awesome forced perspective with the huge out of frame goat body.
Also, in 5 you don't need to render a goat anus. Unless you really WANT to render a goat anus (I'm not here to yuck your yum).
Either way, I think 5 and 6 read the best

@Squirrelsize I think #3 does a good job of storytelling with the shadow. I like the angle on #2.

I think #2 reads quite well to those who read from left to right. First, I look at the shadow then think, "oh my!" as I look at the squirrel's reaction. Finally I look at the goat and get the humor of the situation. Of your options, I think this one is most easily readable. I really like it!

@squirrelsize I vote for 5. Cool to see your process from the start. Good luck!
@Art-of-B I agree, I think those two have been my favs.Hahahaha! My friends always get a hoot out of the goat butts in my drawings lol. Maybe it should be my trademark.
@KathrynAdebayo I agree, #2 is very readable. It would be a good challenge for me too, if I do it with that angle. Thanks!

I like 3rd one.
Yo Peeps, So I've been thinking about all your suggestions and I've come up with a new one. What do you all think?
Squirrel gets started by the shadow spills the milk and jumps on her goats face for protection.

@squirrelsize I like the concept! It made me chuckle! Is there a way to tweak the composition so there is not a dividing line right down the middle (shadow on one side, goat on the other)? Maybe make the shadow larger and use the rule of thirds?
@juliepeelart Yeah! That is a good composition idea! I'll see what I can do on my next sketch. haha! Glad you got some humor from it
