Developmental Commentary

The penguin is a streamlined bird that relies on it’s group (rookery) for warmth and survival. Their stubby bodies move awkwardly out of the water and I thought this would be a good chance to make some awkward, interesting type. I made the characters very sleek and streamlined, like a fat penguin would be, but I tried to organize them into a very awkward cluster that functioned as a whole. Penguins are also loyal to their mates during their mating season and rely on them heavily for survival. As seen in some documentary movies, penguins seem to have feelings of love for their mate, although it is impossible to prove. To pay homage to the penguin love I based most of the characters off of a heart like shape.
