Pinocchio Sketches

Recently, I watched the Disney version of Pinocchio, which I hadn't seen in years. It still holds a firm grasp on my imagination and the movie was done very well, although having not read the original story by Carlo Collodi, I've always know the original to be more involved and darker in nature. So, after finishing up Tarzan of the Apes I bought a copy of the original Pinocchio story and am now reading it. Of course, the imagery is wonderful and imaginative and I am loving it. How would I take on the image and looks of the bratty wooden boy? Not being a real boy and prone to stupidity and misbehaving, I thought to give him deep and dark eye sockets, before he was to earn his character, dignity and humanity.
