Gary, I have a similar critique for you as Lawrence. Your thumbs are very unclear, and I'm not exactly sure what’s going on in each scene. I can sort of make out that the boy is leading the monster towards a particular direction like the city. Others look like they're taking a stroll in the park or gazing at the stars. You need to ask yourself more specific questions, which would lead to more specific answers, effecting your overall design. Why does the monster help the boy? How does he help him? Why does he help him? How old is the boy? What kind of town/city is the boy leading him to? Can you restage the scene so that it shows the monster going against his clan to help the boy? Remember that the more thinking and planning you do at this stage, the less you have to do in the finish (making it easier for you). It’s also a test of your story telling abilities.
