Hey there! I'd like to apologise for the radio silence since my last email but I had something else going on unfortunately (driving license's theorical exam fun). However upon seeing Jordan's characters the other day I got inspired to dump a few experimentions of my own tonight - I doubt they'll actually be useful but at least it allowed me to get back into the swing of things.
Parts of Phil's script reminded me of a series of french children books from the late 50s that would often have illustrations of flocks of children with the protagonist set apart through the use of red, so I figured it might an appropriate source of inspiration to use for this (see bottom of the page). I reckon some of the following sketches ended up looking a bit too humanoid though. I think that kind of came from a fear they would all just look like notes; since I remember reading in the script that at some point musical notes were flying off tubes (or something along those lines), I figured it might be important for those to not be mistaken with the note-children.
Anyway tomorrow I shall look into developing some 'kingdom' concepts. Sorry again if this post seemed a bit unnecessary. Hope everyone's been doing okay :)
