Stefan & Peeku Pencil Tests

Thought I'd share a few initial pencil tests of Stefan and Peeku with everyone..

Here are the character designs of the talented Stefan and his equally talented cat, Peeku..

Hope I finish it on time.. More importantly, hope it comes out the way I "see it".. BTW, for some reason, I haven't been able to decide on a title for my film.. Any suggestions are most welcome - and the chosen title will be credited :)
