So, now that I've got a better script, the novel is done, and I'm well on my way to learning drawing to the point where I roughly start engaging in the concept art, I've been wondering what to do next. My first inkling was to move onto storyboarding and get a storyboard artist. As well as get a background artist and make up the backgrounds for the pilot animation. However, it's still too soon for that because of... well, the next step. I want to move into a stage that I'd like to call concept finalization.

This is where I look at all of the options and figure out the best of each category. Keep what works, drop what doesn't, and make sure that everything is absolutely ready to move on. It's a big step and it's one of the most important. After that, I rewrite the pilot script with everything in mind, and then... well, I need finalized design sheets. Now, these are questions that I'd like to get some consensus on, or at least run them by a general audience. So... let's go. Also, here's a link to the current pilot screenplay, because that might be a necessity: Growing Around Pilot - Attempt #2 (Draft 1)

So, let's go through each and every question. In no particular order:
1.) Are each of the main Dunn characters well defined enough to support their own episodes? Do they each have good chemistry with each other Dunn?
2.) Do each of the secondary/tertiary characters have good chemistry with the main characters?
3.) Are each of the characters easy to draw similarly and repeatedly?
4.) Should the animation start with the Dunn family owning Gumdrops as a pet?
5.) Is the plot good enough to sustain the pilot episode? Does this plot give a good glimpse of the world and leave an audience wanting more?
6.) What should the Dunn house look like? The cake design? The typical house design? A castle? Or something else altogether?
7.) Should I write in a character - Janet's husband Damien. It seems very conspicuous now that she's in the same class without her husband, and one problem I've had with Robert's character is that he didn't have anyone outside of the family to bounce things off of. If I do so, he could be the straight-A student in this type of world. Does this seem like a good idea?
8.) Is the genre and tone of this show visible from the first scene?
9.) Is there anything that doesn't/hasn't worked thus far?
10.) What is absolutely important to this series? If you took this out, this series wouldn't be "Growing Around."

On top of that, I'm going to need concept art (which I am definitely willing to pay for), and I need to figure out the finalized designs on each of the pets.

I auditioned to to sing for the growing around theme song, and in case you didn't see it on your profile page, Mr. Enter, I thought I'd send the link to it here, just to make sure you got it (if it's because it's taking considerably longer to respond, I understand that) I'm sorry I'm limited on Internet resources and equipment for the time being.

Even if I'm not the right person to be performing this song, I'd still prefer hearing that, than hearing nothing at all.
