Totem Animal Carvings and Prints

Veering off the topic of the woods in the dark days around solstice, today's collection consists of tiny drawings of simplified versions of the five animals my collaborator and I have decided to use as the totem animal possibilities.  My plan is to make a five-sided die out of Sculpy and print the animals; then I'll lightly incise them and then bake the Sculpy to make what I hope will turn out to be a bone-like die with an animal on each face.  On the far left are the five carved rubber blocks;  in the middle are my sketches, which I then drew onto the blocks;  on the right are the prints.  The animals are penguin, rabbit, bear, cat, and bird.
