I really love music, I love the way it makes me feel, I love the things it makes me think, and I have, for a long time, wanted to draw comics based off of songs. Mignola uses folk stories to inspire some of his Hellboy stories and I have been trying to do the same thing with music, but a lot of the music I listen to doesn't really apply to my characters. There are lines here and there but usually not a whole song. When I heard Gunning Merring Will Have His Revenge by Captain We're Sinking I thought that I finally found a full song, one that I could do with one of my characters. The original story and outline followed the song to a tee, but I didn't want to give Skoed the personality in the song, so I took out a few things and changed the ending.
Also I am trying a new sort of style. I drew this in my notebook and didn't ink so that it wouldn't look to over produced. I wanted it to feel more punk.
Tell me what you think.
