Well, the love interest in my film is a cuckoo from a cuckoo clock. Needless to say, having spent so much time drawing my mouse lately, it's hard to find a good design for his other half; nothing's good enough for him!
I'm generally basing the design off a canary; cuckoo clock birds are songbirds, not necessarily cuckoos! The clock shop is going to be dark and moody so I'm going to offset that with a stunningly bright and lovely yellow bird!
It's surprising how many different variations you can find within the limited constraints, but there you go. It's time to put her next to my mouse to see how they look together.
