characters studies for "Once Upon a Time..." work in progress.
Once upon a time, there was an energetic Hare, who was so eager to have a real running competition. 
He boasted he could run faster than anyone else, and he wanted to challenge everyone he met in this vast 
forest. The Hare was really concerned about the quality of the race, so he usually felt disappointed 

with his competitors. 

final roughs for  for "Once Upon a Time..."

The Hare was really concerned about the quality of the race, so he usually felt disappointed with his competitors. 
However, who, in the end, would be the winner? 
The Little Red Riding Hood? 
The trudging Tortoise? 
The Three Bears? 
The Bremen Musician?  Hansel, Gretel? 
Sleeping Beauty? 
Would the Hare be the first?
