Your illustrations are always so touching ...(well, maybe the wise owl isn't touching, but he's awe-inspiring) and you create the sweetest little ducklings. I like your interpretation. It's an idea that could work for people too...we should be able to envision the beautiful creatures we are becoming. Nice job!

the angles and the sharpness of your planes you use in your shapes are cool

Wow, this is so cute. It's a great version of the ugly duckling. I think it's great that he can see his true self.

I thought of doing something like this too ... but somehow my duckling just doesn't look right. You did a great job here.
