First, I want to apologize for not having adequate sketches to present yesterday. I was under a wrong impression that the background/figure sketches were due monday, and only in-progress sketches were due on Friday; I'm really sorry for my screw-up.
Second, I read the comments you guys left, and I hope these sketches are a bit more of what you were looking for. I took Gant's advice and got rid of the whole circus theme, and Daniel's by making their heads not quite so large; so hopefully these will work a bit better.
These new sketches are girls wearing modern Japanese street fashion, with backgrounds featuring landscapes and architecture of Kyoto shrines and temples.
