I'm not sure how but, I started associating flashing with bearing your soul. Anyhow, the top image is an earlier drawing of that whole idea. The image to the lower right is an alter ego assignment. I was thinking people keep their alter egos hidden in secret. Unfortunately, the destructive and careless Mr. Hyde side of myself comes out when I'm hammered. That's how these came to be. The End.

This is a storyboard for a parody type deal where King Kong finds a cigar. He ends up going apeshit when he can't figure out how to light it. I really just wanted to draw the happy ending of the last scene but I thought I needed to explain some of the events leading up to the moment. It was a good chance to consider composition. I thought it would be a commercial for some fine cigar company so I kept all the panels the same size and thought a lot about cropping and slowly panning out so the audience learns more about the character and setting.
I think I'd like to be reincarnated as a bison. They're big enough to not have to concern themselves with natural predators and they just munch on grass all day. They don't even have to worry about really regulate their bowel movements. The bison's in the reference photo looked worried about something. I guess even bison life isn't carefree.
