Ultimately I was having trouble drawing overalls on Danish when he was shaped like a bean. No shoulders!
I also started toying with the idea of only the heads of the animals would be, well, animals. The rest of them would have human like features, namely five-fingered hands and five-toed feet. Still figuring it out.
I should also try writing another story so flesh out Granite Town some more. Maybe something about the amusement center repair shop. That's way cooler than Daniel Tiger's dad who works at the clock tower making clocks.
