Okay! I've decided to turn this Illustration into a web comic! That's right, I said it, a web comic!

So KEEP AN EYE OUT for the rest of the story coming soon! It's gonna be a short story OOZING with CHILLS and ATMOSPHERE! MOOWAAHAHAHAHAHAHA-khkh-COUGH! COUGH! .....ahem. Enjoy.

Here's a little somthing spooky appropriate for this month. I got the idea for this from a movie I saw 3 months ago. There was a really cool scene in which the cinematography was just eerie, moody, and you could feel the atmosphere. That's the feeling I tried to convey in this with the lighting. Inside the car, light from the dash and outside light from the break lights.

The issue of computer animation is a frustrating one for a lot of traditional animators and I can totally understand. One of the most obvious complaints about it is that you totally lose the intuitive sense of drawing! You don't think about how to draw a character when you're animating - you're totally in the moment. However, with computer animation, you have to think about those REALLY STUPID technical details, so as a result you're completely sucked out of the moment! It really is like being behind the glass wishing you could just reach in and grab the pencil and draw/animate the way you envision it! Hence the sketch! Got any comments or questions about this or anything else? Feel free to email anytime.

This is the cover for a mini comic book I did, published by Christian Family Church Intl. in 2006.
I plotted the story and characters and did all the artwork, my wife came up with the title, and the final product was written by Marty Gaines and Jason Gunn.
It tied into the sci-fi pirate theme they have going for their youth group. It was a lot of fun to do, but I wish I had more time to work on it, because the deadline came up quick! Enjoy.
