Breaking in...

I did a ton of bad art while trying to break into comics. ( Actually, i still do, but that's another story.. )

This is a panel from a unfinished horror story.  The kids neck's too thick, a common tendency of my early stuff.

Not great, and obviously still a little rough, being a fledgling effort.



Here's something you might not have noticed at first: check out the image that's reflected in the puddle.

See the *hand* reaching up for the kid?

The monster's hand is *only* in the reflection,  so... is the monster real?  Or is he only in the kid's imagination?

Typical EC Comic or Twilight Zone plot-twist.  Seems kinda cheesy now, but back in my teens,

i was quite convinced it was terribly clever.

I think it's really cool, Sam. I noticed the hand in the puddle, great effect.

Sam, I really like this! And the neck actually doesn't look bad at all. The hand in the puddle I picked up on immediately ;) looks great! Would love to own this piece of art!
