I loved the comic! They looked so cute all bundled up.
And actually, my favourite animal is a giraffe, too... Because they can lick their own ears (how cool is that!?)
The pictures look awesome. I don't feel they look out-of-place, it would be better to judge if they had one of the guys next to them, to judge who stood out more.
Giving them eyelashes was a good idea.
Are you going to give the women different skin tones? Or are they all going to be the same?
