Here are my Shadow Puppeteers: Father and Son. They both work together traveling around entertaining the towns. The father, on the left, is an expert puppeteer and cares a lot about his craft/profession. He holds a shadow puppet with great care. He wants to pass down the skills to his only son. On the right is his son. His son means well but is clumsy, lazy, and goofy. He holds his shadow puppet the incorrect way and breaks it. He also wears a picture of his mother on his head wrap in her memory. In the middle is the Beast of Burden, Buddy. He is loyal and grew up with the shadow puppeteer family. He likes to have fun but can sometimes get into trouble too. He sometimes doesn't have patience for the shadow puppeteer's son and hates it when he sleeps on his back and drools (As seen in the story beat below) A smaller story beat depicts Buddy and the son knocking over the cart and getting yelled at by the shadow puppetmaster.
