I've been revisiting a lot of old pieces and seeing if I can recreate them in different ways, and I love this type of environment. If you remember, I did a piece like this but with a sad light-bulb called "The Long Walk Home". This was just for fun, and it was. Enjoy.
"An anthem can be “oh say can you see”
About a people fighting the “good” fight towards prosperity
Or the words can go “g...
Warm foggy eyes
Your words numb my voice
The disappointment in your eyes
I feel like I'm drowning
I can't breathe
After having such nice things said about my last animation (I'd Rather Be The Wolf -Animated), combine with the massive amount of great art, concepts and music (thanks again ppeppina), I couldn't really pry myself away from this project.
I also wrote a short story to go along with this, which is under the resources also.
LET'S CREATE A GALLERY OF GRIMM CHARACTERS & WRITE SOME GHOSTLY STORIES FOR THEM!
Metaphorest, our Resident Text & Audio Curator, has started a collaboration called The Grimm Gallery for all of the dark & twisted characters on hitRECord. The collaboration is here: http://www.hitrecord.org/records/886787
ILLUSTRATORS: You can create some new ghoulish characters and contribute them to the Grimm Gallery collaboration. You could also put these characters into picture frames as if they were on display in a gallery within a decrepit old mansion with peeling wallpaper and eerie vibes.
WRITERS: You could select some of your favorite Grimm Characters from the collab & start writing some back stories or poems about them.

Theserpentthecharmer obviously has a gift with words, and so I was overjoyed when he put some of his short stories in the "Spiderlimbs and Eerie Things" collab. This is the first in a series of four drawings/illustrations for "Daughters and Vultures". Colorists and Letterers---you know what to do!
"I'd ask the hangman to wait, to wait until I found your face in the crowd. "
In my collaboration "Spiderlimbs and Eerie Things" I challenged all the crontibutors to consider coming together with our creepy stories and illustrations to create a graphic novel. A graphic novel is the perfect collaboration project as it necessitates a writer, penciller, inker, letterer, and colorist.
In the case of this first story I have filled in as penciller and inker, just to get the ball rolling, and obviously, Metaphorest was the writer of the poem "The Sorrow Bird". Now all that is needed (for this story, at least) is a letterer and colorist. Help me out guys! (Or start your own penciller/inker steps by choosing another story in the collab.)
If you want to take on either of these jobs, download the zip file of all the pages!

I had quite a bit of fun trying to illustrate sojushots short story "Hiding"! these particular monsters are supposed to look like mutated memories of people that went from reality to nightmares. I am no good at lettering, so If someone wanted to re-mix sojushots story or a work of their own digitally into this image---I would be ever so grateful!
