Next Booples! Episode: "Children of God" - John 1:12

I'm currently working on the next episode of Booples! which will be the first episode on the 3rd DVD.

The episode is currently titled "Children of God" with the message verse being John 1:12

Yet to all who received him,
to those who believed in his name,
he gave the right to become children of God

I have made some improvements to the Booples' world - adding some depth to the background (as you can see from the images below) w/ additional hills and a focus range so the distance objects are slightly blurred.

The song by Pete Buchwald is great as always and I'm really excited about some new aspects of the stories I don't want to write about just yet.

Let me know what you think!
