The dolphin is very cute (a natural attribute of theirs) but also has the smart, "I understand what you're saying" look that some dogs get.
It should be smart, to at least be considered "The Wise Dolphin".
Anyways, nice work and I'm interested to see how the film is! :D

It's so whimsical! I love the muted palette- very soft and airy (or should I say watery. =P )

This is gorgeous. The subjects are almost pearlescent. Such a good use of white in this image.
What a cute creature and a lovely atmosphere this has.

And I really like the very subtle use of pink and red.

So this may be a silly question, but here goes: I went to the kickstarter page and everything seems to be related to the English pound. Never having used kickstarter before, I'm wondering if there will be any problems making donations based off of the U.S. dollar since I'm located in California? Do you know if it will automatically make the conversion?

Thanks,

Pastywhite.
