Shape Task

Shape Task

Evaluation
What did you like about your image?
I love the gradient effects on the racoon, especially on the eyes.
I like how the background is the same grey colour as the racoon. It blends in really
well because the grey part of the head is connected to the background with no
outline, making it look appealing and interesting.
The shaping on both pieces is really fluent and makes them look visually appealing.
Both pieces have a really bold and nice colour palette that perfectly match the
animals they represent.
I like the Lighting effects on the lion because it gives the piece a lot of depth.
What would you improve if you did it again?
I dont really like the shape of the mane because it looks to simple, sharp and not
really hairy. Next time, I should shorted the spikes on the shape and add more of
them, but also smoothen their tips to make it look more like a lions mane.
While I like the lighting effects on the lion for giving the piece depth, I wish I could
maybe smoothen it because it sort-of looks unnaturally plastic which isnt very
pretty for what is meant to be a lion.
I wish I couldve added whiskers to the racoon because it would of added more
authentic detail to it.

Rotoscope

Evaluation
What did you like about your image?
I liked the self-shaded/cartoony look of the image because its what
Im aiming for in my childrens book.
The colour palette is pale which replicates the source material of
this image: a zombie film.
I like how the name tag label is at a 3D angle that matches the
angle of the tag; it gives the piece more depth.
I love how the shirt realistically creases and bends on the sides and
the pockets because it looks professional and detailed.
What would you improve if you did it again?
Maybe for next time, I should add different shadings and textures
onto the Rotoscope for when I ever want to go for a more realistic
look for a project.
Try to make the level of the eyelids the same on both of them as
they look quite uneven.

Film Quotes

Evaluation
What did you like about your image?
I love the font choice and the text colour because its the same as the
Jaws logo, completely fitting the source material of the image.
I love how the orca boat from the Jaws film is a white silhouette because it
looks visually appealing as a silhouette and it blends in well with the text.
It also goes great with the quote itself: Were gonna need a bigger boat.
What would you improve if you did it again?
The wave effect underneath the sharks thin is looks a bit off because
theres like a straight line in between a couple of waves on the bottom of
the thin when really the whole line should be curvy. I would of also wished
Id put a curvy line underneath the boat because it would of looked
consistent with the rest of the image.
I wish that instead of a shark thin, I used a white silhouette of the shark
leaping out of the water with his mouth open, ready to eat the boat. The
silhouette also has outlines showcasing the sharks mouth, jaw, eye and
gills to really make the shark look scary.

Text Based

Text Based

Evaluation
What did you like about your image?
I like all of the the interesting ways and angles the text bends, pops, curves
etc. It would be really boring if the text was just straight with 90 degree angles.
The font is bold and thick which makes the text easy to read. This is especially
helpful when it comes to some of the more skewed and distorted text.
The colour choices are really nice with some pretty cool gradient effects.
I love the texture on the first one because it looks really interesting and
actually blends in well with the text.
What would you improve if you did it again?
I dont really like the the bevelled grid-based textures on the second piece; it
doesnt really look appealing when its on text. Next time, I should just stick to
bold shades and gradients for text.
Even though I like the choice of font, I wish I couldve used different fonts so
theres a much greater variety.
I could of maybe experimented with effects other than gradients and shadows
on the texts.

Comic Book

Evaluation
What did you like about your image?
I like the choppy, cut-out style of the outlines, it gives the picture a
special charm.
The cell-shaded colour palette is very bold and interesting. I also
like how I given the man yellow skin considering that it is Matt
Groening: the creator of The Simpsons.
What would you improve if you did it again?
The placement and the shading of the colours looks really jagged
and misplaced. Next time, I would like to keep the colours in side
their corresponding areas and making the lining of the colours
smoother with better rotoscoping.
I wish I could change the colour of the background to make it
standout from the mans colours.
The colour palette, while bold, could use some more variety of
primary colours.

Comic Book (remake)

Evaluation
What did you like about your image?
I like this pieces cut-out art style. It makes the image look like its
from a very stylish and gorgeous-looking comic book.
The images effects are some of the best Photoshop work Ive
done so far. Its certainly an improvement from the last comic book
piece. The colours are bold thanks to the cut-out art style, the way
they blur and blend looks very appealing, especially on the
jackets creases and I love the way the buildings in the
background fade into a cloudier colour the further away they are
from the screen. These features definitely add depth to the piece.
Thanks to the lighting of the piece and how detailed the cut-out
style is, it looks really close to the original image. But it still
manages to stand out from the original image because of the
added filters.
What would you improve if you did it again?
I think I couldve used the polygon lasso tool a bit better when
filtering Newt Scamander (the main man on the image). Some
areas look out of place compared to the original image and I think
I could improve my skills with the polygon lasso tool for next time I
do a piece like this.
Instead of blending in with the background colours, I maybe
couldve added more colours to the background objects, like the
car and other towns people. I think it couldve made the image

Photo Story: Final

Evaluation
What did you like about your image?
I loved how I created a combination of for each image and other assets in the comic: I gave
each of them a cut-out filter, and then added a poster edge filter over the cut-out filter to
give the comic a nice-looking art style thats reminiscent of early Marvel/DC comics.
The specific combination of layers Ive created also makes everything pop and easy to see
thanks to the blocky shading from the cut-out filter and the black outlines from the poster
edge filter.
I love how I plastered the MYSTERIOUS DOOR sign onto the door through Photoshop;
even though the sign isnt actual on the real door thats on the photograph, I think it looks
like it was on the comic, thanks to all the amazing distortion, perspective and bevel tools I
used.
The emoticons and movement directions (e.g. the arrow and the question mark) makes the
piece more charming and expressive.
What would you improve if you did it again?
I feel that the colour palette for this piece is way too dull and dark at times: I think I should
make the colours more bold, bright and vibrant next time with better lighting on the
photographs and trying some colour alterations when editing the images.
I feel the explosion effects could look a bit less geometric and more realistic to make them
consistent with the comics art style.

Colouring/Final

Evaluation
What did you like about your image?
I love the character art style here. It looks simple but also visually
appealing: the big eyes, mouth to one side, expressive face, the hairy
spikes on the back etc.
The colour palette looks really nice when its done with colouring pencils
because it really gives the illustration a storybook look.
I find the inky outline of the illustration to look really appealing and
stylish.
What would you improve if you did it again?
The character design here looks way too similar to Sonic the Hedgehog,
even with little changes in design and colour palette, which may mark
this design as plagiarism. Maybe next time, I should try and alter the
design even more to make it differ from Sonics look more.
I would like to try drawing this illustration on a computer using a graphics
tablet so that I can use more graphical and advance drawing and filling
tools.

arrative Environment

Evaluation
What did you like about your image?
I adore the lighting effects on the image: the way the light bounces on the
objects, the way the shadows are presented on the image, the beautiful
glow around the sun, the thin line of fog above the ocean to show how far
the ocean is from the view of the image. It really makes the image look
graphically professional.
I love the reflection of the sun on the ocean because smudging the look of
the sun for its reflection really makes the ocean look like water as it should.
The colour palette is very bold and vivid, combined with the lighting effects
really makes the image look appealing.
I love how the birds slowly fade into the sun as they get closer to it. With
each bird having a different fade effect, it really gives them depth.
What would you improve if you did it again?
I wished I couldve made the clouds fade into the top of the sky so that it
really shows the transaction from day to night. It doesnt look very natural
the way its just plastered onto the screen without any effect towards the
background.
The clouds themselves dont look very natural as well. In my eyes, they
kind of look like theyre made of plastic. I wished Id either make the clouds
look more like real clouds where they have messy outlines and fill, or got
rid of the bevel on the image so it blends in better with the rest of image
when it comes to visual style.

Notes on character designs:


The Hedgehog here is based on the design from the
illustrations task but is redesigned to reduce the amount of
similarities to Sonic the Hedgehog.
Character designs are suitable for plot devices within the
story:
The hedgehogs legs are small and puny which makes the hare
(who has long legs) laugh at the hedgehog, causing the race to
be arranged.
The hedgehogs wife looks almost identical to him which is
important considering the twist at the end of the book.

The characters are mainly constructed of geometric


shapes, making them easy and quick to draw (especially on
the computer) while simultaneously making it look visually
appealing.

Story Overview
One Sunday morning, a hedgehog decides to go check on his turnips when all
of a sudden, he spots a hare, who even after the hedgehog greets a friendly
hello, mocks his small legs. Enraged, the hedgehog wagers the hare a race for
a large penny. After he accepts his challenge, they arrange to meet at a furrow
field in half an hour, and so the hedgehog quickly goes home to grab his wife
so he can get his revenge on the hare for insulting him. He plans to make the
hare run himself until exhaustion by making his wife stand at the other end of
the furrow; because both of them look similar, the rabbit will think its the one
hedgehog beating him in every race, making the hare constantly wanting a
rematch. When they start the race, he falls for the trap, thus making him run
himself to exhaustion.

Production Methods
For the character illustrations, I have a particular process in mind: I
will draw them them on paper in pencil first, then Ill scan them
onto the computer as PDF files, import the images to adobe
illustrator and finally, using a graphics tablet, trace over the
drawing on illustrator and fill the colours in digitally. Digitising the
character designs will give them a professional look which will be
suitable for a childrens book that can potentially be published.
The backgrounds will be done using Adobe Photoshop using the
same techniques Ive used for my Narrative Environment piece.
These are the following: rotoscoping, clipping masks, warping
shapes, adding lighting, glow, shadow and gradient effects etc.
Audience
The book will be aimed towards children from both genders around
ages 3-9. This is for children who want to read a fairy tale that feels
fresh and non-clichd which is why Ive picked a fairy tale that has
not really been adapted before. This also for kids who want to read
a book that has very stylish illustrations all over and not something
so detailed to make it easy on the eyes.
Deadline
19th November 2016

What are the strengths of the proposal?

What areas of the proposal need further work?

That it shows the page dimensions and that its has


a advantage of the PDF file format.

You need to complete the disadvantages of a PDF


format section. You need to provide an outline of
your story. You need to discus you production
techniques and say what you are going to use to
create your book. You also need to discus your
target audience and consider the age gender and
class ect. Finally there is no deadline in place.

What are the strengths of the idea generation?

What areas of idea generation could have been


further developed?

The idea generation pages are all very detailed and


well made. The mind maps are very thoroughly
done and clear. The same goes form your mood
boards which show many different visual styles that
you can choose from. You have a mood board form
themes which is less clear but is also quite good.

The only place I see that needs more development


is the themes mood board. I think that it has good
ideas but they seem to be unclear on what you are
going for. You could create one more slide for that
mood board to make your ideas more clear.

What are the strengths of the proposal?

What areas of the proposal need further work?

The strengths are that youve clearly shown the


dimensions of the book and that you know how
many pages exactly that you want it to be, giving
an idea of how long/detailed it is going to be once
finished.

Maybe add more points showing the advantages


and disadvantages of the PDF files to show more
knowledge. Also add an overview of the story to
give a clear idea of whats going to happen through
the book. Complete the production methods and
the audience section of your proposal to explain
your idea further and why you have chosen to
present your story this way.

What are the strengths of the idea generation?

What areas of idea generation could have been


further developed?

The mind maps are all very detailed and show


good information of what the ideas are. Its good
that it shows many different ideas and focuses then
on two different stories and the specific details of
each of them and whats important within each of
those stories.

Idea generation is good overall but I think on the


mood board you should involve images more
specific to how you are wanting the story and the
characters to look, rather than having different
options.

What are the strengths of the proposal?

What areas of the proposal need further work?


Most it all of the questions in the proposal are
blank you have not answered them maybe you
didn't get time or you forgot to do them over the
weekend but besides you putting the dimensions
there's nothing here for me to like or not like.

What are the strengths of the idea generation?

What areas of idea generation could have been


further developed?

There is a lot of detail here and you have clearly


put out your idea so that most people can
understand what you are doing. There is so much
here as I can see you put a lot of time and effort
here as there is a lot of detail on everything and I
can see you put a lot of thought in to all your ideas.

I think you spent a bit too long on this, meaning


you couldn't do your proposal so next time put both
even attention, idea generation and proposal as if
you dont you lose half of the the work.

Feedback Summary
Sum up your feedback.
I have a large and detailed variety of ideas in my generations, bringing up all the
necessary points and making them clear to understand. The mood board has a
great variety of different themes and styles but maybe I should make them more
clear and relevant to the story of my book. I need to complete the proposal
because theres a lot work that needs to be started on it.

Which parts of your feedback do you agree with and why?

I definitely need to finish my proposal because it needs to be done and I need


to complete it so that I can use it when Im producing the book. This is why I
think most of my criticism towards my mood boards came from, because they
didnt get any ideas on what the book is going to be from the proposal.
I agree that I havent really made my mood board clear to the viewer because
I havent explained the story through an overview in the proposal as of the
time I got this feedback. Maybe, I could either try adding more relevant
images, or try labelling numbers on the pictures and then link them to the
idea generation with those numbers so that I show where Im coming from
with each image.
I can agree that I can spend way too long on each task and thats mainly
because Im a bit of a perfectionist. Maybe I need to start doing work at home
more often so that I can be assure that my work will be done on time at my
pace.

Which parts of your feedback do you disagree with and why?

I disagree with the one point of criticism towards my mood board when it was
how irrelevant my images were towards my story. Its not so much showing

Script
Development:

Original Script (Part 1):


Source: http://www.pitt.edu/~dash/grimm187. html
This story was actually made up, young ones, but it really is true, for my grandfather, who told it to me, always said
whenever he told it, "it must be true, my son, otherwise it couldn't be told." Anyway, this is how the story goes:
It was on a Sunday morning at harvest time, just when the buckwheat was in bloom. The sun was shining bright in the
heaven, the morning wind was blowing warmly across the stubble, the larks were singing in the air, the bees were buzzing in
the buckwheat, and the people in their Sunday best were on their way to church, and all the creatures were happy, including
the hedgehog.
The hedgehog was standing before his door with his arms crossed, humming a little song to himself, neither better nor worse
than hedgehogs usually sing on a nice Sunday morning. Singing there to himself, half silently, it suddenly occurred to him
that while his wife was washing and drying the children, he could take a little walk into the field and see how his turnips were
doing. The turnips were close by his house, and he and his family were accustomed to eating them, so he considered them
his own.
No sooner said than done. The hedgehog closed the house door behind him and started down the path to the field. He hadn't
gone very far away from his house at all, only as far as the blackthorn bush which stands at the front of the field, near the
turnip patch, when he met up with the hare, who had gone out for a similar purpose, namely to examine his cabbage.
When the hedgehog saw the hare, he wished him a friendly good morning. The hare, however, who was in his own way a
distinguished gentleman, and terribly arrogant about it, did not answer the hedgehog's greeting, but instead said to the
hedgehog, in a terribly sarcastic manner, "How is it that you are running around in the field so early in the morning?"
"I'm taking a walk," said the hedgehog.
"Taking a walk?" laughed the hare. "I should think that you could better use your legs for other purposes."
This answer made the hedgehog terribly angry, for he could stand anything except remarks about his legs, for by nature they
were crooked.
"Do you imagine," said the hedgehog to the hare, "that you can accomplish more with your legs?"
"I should think so," said the hare.
"That would depend on the situation," said the hedgehog. "I bet, if we were to run a race, I'd pass you up."
"That is a laugh! You with your crooked legs!" said the hare. "But for all I care, let it be, if you are so eager. What will we
wager?"
"A gold louis d'or and a bottle of brandy," said the hedgehog.
"Accepted," said the hare. "Shake hands, and we can take right off."
"No, I'm not in such a hurry," said the hedgehog. "I'm very hungry. First I want to go home and eat a little breakfast. I'll be
back here at this spot in a half hour."
The hare was agreeable with this, and the hedgehog left.
On his way home the hedgehog thought to himself, "The hare is relying on his long legs, but I'll still beat him. He may well be
a distinguished gentleman, but he's still a fool, and he'll be the one to pay.

Original Script (Part 2):


Arriving home, he said to his wife, "Wife, get dressed quickly. You've got to go out to the field with me."
"What's the matter?" said his wife.
"I bet a gold louis d'or and a bottle of brandy with the hare that I could beat him in a race, and you should be there too."
"My God, man," the hedgehog's wife began to cry, "are you mad? Have you entirely lost your mind? How can you agree to run a race
with the hare?"
"Hold your mouth, woman," said the hedgehog. "This is my affair. Don't get mixed up in men's business. Hurry up now, get dressed,
and come with me."
What was the hedgehog's wife to do? She had to obey, whether she wanted to or not.
As they walked toward the field together, the hedgehog said to his wife, "Now pay attention to what I tell you. You see, we are going
to run the race down the long field. The hare will run in one furrow and I in another one. We'll begin running from up there. All you
have to do is to stand here in the furrow, and when the hare approaches from the other side, just call out to him, 'I'm already here.'"
With that they arrived at the field, the hedgehog showed his wife her place, then he went to the top of the field. When he arrived the
hare was already there.
"Can we start?" said the hare.
"Yes, indeed," said the hedgehog. "On your mark!" And each one took his place in his furrow.
The hare counted "One, two, three," and he tore down the field like a windstorm. But the hedgehog ran only about three steps and
then ducked down in the furrow and remained there sitting quietly.
When the hare, in full run, arrived at the bottom of the field, the hedgehog's wife called out to him, "I'm already here!"
The hare, startled and bewildered, thought it was the hedgehog himself, for as everyone knows, a hedgehog's wife looks just like her
husband.
The hare thought, "Something's not right here." He called out, "Let's run back again!" And he took off again like a windstorm, with his
ears flying from his head. But the hedgehog's wife remained quietly in place.
When the hare arrived at the top, the hedgehog called out to him, "I'm already here!"
The hare, beside himself with excitement, shouted, "Let's run back again!"
"It's all right with me," answered the hedgehog. "For all I care, as often as you want."
So the hare ran seventy-three more times, and the hedgehog always kept up with him. Each time the hare arrived at the top or the
bottom of the field, the hedgehog or his wife said, "I am already here!"
But the hare did not complete the seventy-fourth time. In the middle of the field, with blood flowing from his neck, he fell dead to the
ground.
The hedgehog took the gold louis d'or and the bottle of brandy he had won, called his wife from her furrow, and happily they went
back home.
And if they have not died, then they are still alive.
Thus it happened that the hedgehog ran the hare to death on the Buxtehude Heath, and since that time no hare has agreed to enter
a race with a hedgehog.
The moral of this story is, first, that no one, however distinguished he thinks himself, should make fun of a lesser man, even if this
man is a hedgehog. And second, when a man marries, it is recommended that he take a wife from his own class, one who looks just
like him. In other words, a hedgehog should always take care that his wife is also a hedgehog, and so forth.

Draft Script (Draft 1):


1. It was a beautiful morning outside; the church bells rang, the birds were singing, the bees were buzzing, the
flowers were blooming, while the sun was shining brightly upon them, blessing everything with life. Every creature
was happy, including the hedgehog. While his wife was busying doing the dishes inside of their treehouse, he was
outside, standing by the door with his arms folded, whistling a smoothing melody that was neither better nor worse
than what the average hedgehog sings on a day like this.
2. After whistling for a little bit, he decided that while his wife was busy with the dishes, he would go on a little walk
into his turnip patch to see how his turnips were doing. The turnip patch was close by his house, and him and his
wife were established to eating them, so he self-proclaims the patch as his own. He closes the door and sets off with
a smile towards the path that leads to the field where the patch lies. His walk was cut short however, just by the
front of the field where the blackthorn bush was placed, when he spots a hare who was examining his cabbage
patch in the field.
3. When the hedgehog spots the hare, he wishes him a nice, friendly good morning, but the hare, who was quite a
distinguished gentleman, and was cocky and arrogant about it, rudely ignores his warm greeting. Instead, he
sarcastically asks the Hedgehog How on Earth are you running around in this field at an early time like this? The
Hedgehog replies Well, Im actually taking a walk,. TAKING A WALK?! laughed the hare Im certain there are
better purposes for those puny legs of yours.
4. This remark made the hedgehog furiously angry! He can usually take anything except for insults about his legs
because naturally, hedgehogs have small legs. Is that so? the hedgehog said to the hare repressively, and do
you believe you can achieve more with your legs? Indeed! replies the hare just compare my long, strong legs to
your small, puny legs. I think youll see a pretty clear answer for yourself. Well I can proof you wrong! said the
hedgehog Ill challenge you to a race! If you accept, I bet youll be on your knees, sobbing in defeat. With your
puny legs?! questioned the hare sarcastically Please dont make me laugh! But hey, I dont care if you embarrass
yourself. What will we wager? A large, gold penny, said the hedgehog.
5. Well then, I accept your challenge, said the hare as he shakes hands with the hedgehog I suggest we rally at
the furrow fields. Good idea! Meet me there in half an hour the hedgehog arranges I am very hungry so Im
going to go home to have a quick breakfast. The hare was agreeable with the hedgehog and so they depart. As the
hedgehog strolls back home, he thought to himself the hare may be relying on his legs, but Im still going to beat
him. He may be a distinguished gentleman, but hes still an arrogant fool, which is why he must be taught a
lesson.
6. As soon as he arrives home, the hedgehog says to his wife Honey, put your house duties on hold for now. I need
you to come to the furrow field with me. Whats the matter? asked the wife. I bet a large, gold penny with a
hare that I could beat him in a foot race. You should be there as well, replied the hedgehog. Have you gone

7. As they walk towards the field, the hedgehog explains the plan to his wife: Now pay close attention to what I tell
you. You see, me and the hare will be racing down the long field. Hell be running down one furrow while Ill be in
the one next to it. Well start the race from over there, and all you have to do, is stand at the other end of my
furrow, which is where the race will finish. When the hare approaches from the other side, just call out to him, Im
already here and let him do the rest.
8. With that explained, they arrive at the furrow field, the hedgehog showed his wife her place and went to the top
of the field to go meet the hare. I hope you know what youre doing! The wife shouted as he leaves. Dont worry
sweetheart, everythings under control, said the hedgehog.
9. When he reaches to the top of the field, the hare was already there waiting for him. When I arrive somewhere
due, Im always on time. Thats means you are late! Said the hare in a cocky manner. Oh well, shall we start
then? Of course the hedgehog answered. On your mark! and they both took their places in their corresponding
furrows. The hare counted 3, 2, 1, GO! and blasted through the field like a rocket. The hedgehog on the other
hand, only took about 3 steps, ducked down in the furrow, sat down and remained in his starting post.
10. When the hare, running at his maximum pace, arrived at the other end of the field, the hedgehogs wife called
out to him, Im already here! The hare, with his jaw to the ground, thought it was the hedgehog himself, for it is
common sense that a hedgehogs wife looks just like her husband. The hare wondered, Something fishy is going on
here. He called out I want a rematch! Lets run back again!
11. Again, he counted 3, 2, 1, GO! and took off the same way as last round: like a rocket, with his ears wobbling
from his head. But the hedgehogs wife remained silently in place just like the hedgehog himself in the last race.
When the hare arrived back at the top of the furrow, the hedgehog called out to him Im already here! Again?!
the hare said in shock, I want yet another rematch! And Im not going to stop asking for rematches until I win!
Thats fine by me, said the hedgehog we can all day for all I care.
12. With that being said, the hare ran 73 more times, back and forth through the field. And every time he arrives at
the top or bottom end of the field, the hedgehog or his wife said, Im already here! But the hare never lost his
determination until the 74th time he ran, which he couldnt even finish as he dropped down to the ground, lying in
exhaustion. By then, the hedgehog walked up to him with a smirk on his face and his hand out, waiting for the hare
to pay the wager.
13. The hare was on his knees, sobbing in defeat, just like what the hedgehog predicted as he holds up the large
gold penny, waiting for the hedgehog to take it from him. The hedgehog then proceeds to take the large gold penny
off the hare: Thank you, said the hedgehog in a cocky manner. The hare drags himself home, still on his knees
crying.

Draft Script (Draft 2):


1. It was a beautiful morning outside; the church bells rang, the birds were singing, the bees were buzzing, the
flowers were blooming, while the sun was shining brightly upon them, blessing everything with life. Every creature
was happy, including the hedgehog. While his wife was busying doing the dishes inside of their treehouse, he was
outside, standing by the door with his arms folded, whistling a smoothing melody that was neither better nor worse
than what the average hedgehog sings on a day like this.
2. After whistling for a little bit, he decided that while his wife was busy with the dishes, he would go on a little walk
into his turnip patch to see how his turnips were doing. The turnip patch was close by his house, and him and his
wife were established to eating them, so he self-proclaims the patch as his own. He closes the door and sets off with
a smile towards the path that leads to the field where the patch lies. His walk was cut short however, just by the
front of the field where the blackthorn bush was placed, when he spots a hare who was examining his cabbage
patch in the field.
3. When the hedgehog spots the hare, he wishes him a nice, friendly good morning, but the hare, who was quite a
distinguished gentleman, and was cocky and arrogant about it, rudely ignores his warm greeting. Instead, he
sarcastically asks the Hedgehog How on Earth are you running around in this field at an early time like this? The
Hedgehog replies Well, Im actually taking a walk,. TAKING A WALK?! laughed the hare Im certain there are
better purposes for those puny legs of yours.
4. This remark made the hedgehog furiously angry! He can usually take anything except for insults about his legs
because naturally, hedgehogs have small legs. Is that so? the hedgehog said to the hare repressively, and do
you believe you can achieve more with your legs? Indeed! replies the hare just compare my long, strong legs to
your small, puny legs. I think youll see a pretty clear answer for yourself. Well I can proof you wrong! said the
hedgehog Ill challenge you to a race! If you accept, I bet youll be on your knees, sobbing in defeat. With your
puny legs?! questioned the hare sarcastically Please dont make me laugh! But hey, I dont care if you embarrass
yourself. What will we wager? A large, gold penny, said the hedgehog.
5. Well then, I accept your challenge, said the hare as he shakes hands with the hedgehog I suggest we rally at
the furrow fields. Good idea! Meet me there in half an hour the hedgehog arranges I am very hungry so Im
going to go home to have a quick breakfast. The hare was agreeable with the hedgehog and so they depart. As the
hedgehog strolls back home, he thought to himself the hare may be relying on his legs, but Im still going to beat
him. He may be a distinguished gentleman, but hes still an arrogant fool, which is why he must be taught a
lesson.
6. As soon as he arrives home, the hedgehog says to his wife Honey, put your house duties on hold for now. I need
you to come to the furrow field with me. Whats the matter? asked the wife. I bet a large, gold penny with a
hare that I could beat him in a foot race. You should be there as well, replied the hedgehog. Have you gone
insane?! How do you think youre going to beat a hare in a race?! We were saving our gold penny for a holiday!

Draft Script (Draft 2):


7. As they walk towards the field, the hedgehog explains the plan to his wife: Now pay close attention to what I tell you. You
see, me and the hare will be racing down the long field. Hell be running down one furrow while Ill be in the one next to it. Well
start the race from over there, and all you have to do, is stand at the other end of my furrow, which is where the race will finish.
When the hare approaches from the other side, just call out to him, Im already here and let him do the rest.
8. With that explained, they arrive at the furrow field, the hedgehog showed his wife her place and went to the top of the field to
go meet the hare. I hope you know what youre doing! The wife shouted as he leaves. Dont worry sweetheart, everythings
under control, said the hedgehog.
9. When he reaches to the top of the field, the hare was already there waiting for him. When I arrive somewhere due, Im
always on time. Thats means you are late! Said the hare in a cocky manner. Oh well, shall we start then? Of course the
hedgehog answered. On your mark! and they both took their places in their corresponding furrows. The hare counted 3, 2, 1,
GO! and blasted through the field like a rocket. The hedgehog on the other hand, only took about 3 steps, ducked down in the
furrow, sat down and remained in his starting post.
10. When the hare, running at his maximum pace, arrived at the other end of the field, the hedgehogs wife called out to him,
Im already here! The hare, with his jaw to the ground, thought it was the hedgehog himself, for it is common sense that a
hedgehogs wife looks just like her husband. The hare wondered, Something fishy is going on here. He called out I want a
rematch! Lets run back again!
11. Again, he counted 3, 2, 1, GO! and took off the same way as last round: like a rocket, with his ears wobbling from his head.
But the hedgehogs wife remained silently in place just like the hedgehog himself in the last race. When the hare arrived back at
the top of the furrow, the hedgehog called out to him Im already here! Again?! the hare said in shock, I want yet another
rematch! And Im not going to stop asking for rematches until I win! Thats fine by me, said the hedgehog we can all day for
all I care.
12. With that being said, the hare ran 73 more times, back and forth through the field. And every time he arrives at the top or
bottom end of the field, the hedgehog or his wife said, Im already here! But the hare never lost his determination until the
74th time he ran, which he couldnt even finish as he dropped down to the ground, lying in exhaustion. By then, the hedgehog
walked up to him with a smirk on his face and his hand out, waiting for the hare to pay the wager.
13. The hare was on his knees, sobbing in defeat, just like what the hedgehog predicted as he holds up the large gold penny,
waiting for the hedgehog to take it from him. Before the hedgehog decides to collect his price however, he looked at the crying
hare and thought to himself as he started to feel sorry for him Wow, he seems really depressed over how he lost. If I take his
large, gold penny, would that make me the better man? Heck, am I even the better man for cheating?
14. After thinking for a little bit while simultaneously looking at the weeping hare, the hedgehog said to the hare You know
what, you really have tried your hardest to beat me, to the point where youve nearly killed yourself in the process. How about
you keep your large, gold penny instead of having me take it, you deserve it. Really?! Asked the hare in guilt Even after how
I insulted you because of how I though I was superior to you? Well, I think it would be the unethical thing to do, replied the
hedgehog. Wow, thats the nicest thing that anyone has ever done for me, said the Hare in now tears of joy, Thank you for
sparing me, and Im really sorry about what I said earlier, I shouldnt have considered you inferior to me based on legs. Its
alright, said the hedgehog just dont be judgmental towards smaller creatures again. Yes sir. Said the hare.

Final Script:
1. It was a beautiful morning outside; the church bells rang, the birds were singing, the bees were buzzing; the
flowers were blooming, while the sun was shining brightly upon them. Every creature was happy, including the
hedgehog. While his wife was busying doing the dishes inside of their treehouse, he was outside, standing by the
door with his arms folded, whistling the most smoothing melody youll hear from a hedgehog on a Sunday morning.
2. After whistling for a little bit, he decided that while his wife was busy with the dishes, he would go on a little walk
into his turnip patch to see how his turnips were doing. He closed the door and set off with a smile towards the path
that leads to the field where the patch lies. His walk was cut short however, just by the front of the field when he
spotted a hare that was examining his cabbage patch in the field.
3. When the hedgehog spots the hare, he wishes him a nice, friendly good morning, but the hare, who was quite a
distinguished gentleman, rudely ignores him. Instead, he sarcastically asks the hedgehog How on Earth are you
running around in this field at an early time like this? The hedgehog replies Well, Im actually taking a walk,.
TAKING A WALK?! laughed the hare Im certain there are better uses for those puny legs of yours.
4. This remark made the hedgehog furiously angry! Is that so? said the hedgehog, Well then I challenge you to a
race! If you accept, I bet youll be on your knees, sobbing in defeat. The hare laughed, Please dont make me
laugh! But hey, I dont care if you embarrass yourself. What will we wager? A large, gold fifty-pound coin, said the
hedgehog.
5. Well then, I accept your challenge, said the hare as he shakes hands with the hedgehog I suggest we rally at
the furrow fields. Good idea! Meet me there in half an hour the hedgehog arranges I am very hungry so Im
going to go home to have a quick breakfast. The hare was agreeable with the hedgehog and so they depart. As the
hedgehog strolls back home, he thought to himself He may be a distinguished gentleman with long legs, but hes
still an arrogant fool who must be taught a lesson.
6. As soon as he arrived home, the hedgehog says to his wife Honey, put your house duties on hold. I need you to
come to the furrow field with me. Whats the matter? asked the wife. I bet a fifty-pound coin with a hare that I
could beat him in a race, replied the hedgehog. Have you gone insane?! How do you think youre going to beat a
hare in a race?! Shouted the wife. Dont worry, I have a plan, the hedgehog said he may beat me in speed, but I
can outsmart him by a mile, but Ill need your help. Come with me and Ill explain on the way. Well, ok, said the
wife.

Final Script:
7. Later on, the hedgehog arrived to the top of the field and the hare was already there, waiting for him.
When I arrive somewhere due, Im always on time. Thats means you are late! Said the hare in a cocky
manner. Oh well, shall we start then? Of course the hedgehog answered. On your mark! and they both
took their places in their corresponding furrows. The hare counted 3, 2, 1, GO! and blasted through the
field like a rocket.
8. When the hare arrived at the other end of the field, his jaw dropped to the ground, as he saw the
hedgehog as he called out Im already here! The hare wondered, Something fishy is going on here. He
called out I want a rematch! Lets run back to the top of the field!
9. Again, he counted 3, 2, 1, GO! and took off the same way as last round: like a rocket. When the hare
arrived back at the top of the furrow, the hedgehog called out to him Im already here! Again? the hare
said in shock, I want yet another rematch! Thats fine by me, said the hedgehog we can go all day for
all I care. With that being said, the hare ran 73 more times through the field. And each match ended the
same way: the hedgehog beats him while calling out, Im already here! But the hare never lost his
determination until the 74th time he ran, which he couldnt even finish.
10. The hare was exhausted from all the runs through the field so many times, and dropped to the ground.
By then, the hedgehog walked up to him with a smirk on his face and his hand out, waiting for the hare to
pay the wager. The hare was on his knees, sobbing in defeat, just like what the hedgehog predicted as he
holds up a fifty-pound coin, waiting for the hedgehog to take it from him. The hedgehog then proceeds to
take the coin off the hare: You see Mr. Hare, this is why you shouldnt judge people on appearances, said
the hedgehog. The hare drags himself home, still on his knees crying.
11. Once the hare gets out of the hedgehogs sight, he calls out his wife from the other end of the furrow,
who was dressed up like him, Thank you honey! I can always count on you, said the hedgehog. It was a
very successful plan. Its a good thing we look very much a-like, said the wife. She put her head bow back
on her forehead and they happily set off home with the large gold fifty-pound coin. Ever since that day, no
hare has ever accepted a race with a hedgehog because the hedgehog showed an example on why you
should never judge a lesser creature, no matter how distinguished you may be.
