"I once asked my father if there was someone else like me and mother in our world. He promptly remembered hearing myths about a girl who lived with the wild men beyond the cliffs. They did not shy away from civilization, so every once in a while stories could be heard about a small girl sitting on the shoulders of her towering stepdad, who, despite his monstrous appearance, always had a benevolent smile on his face. Unfortunately their last tale ended with them vanishing without a trace. When I inquired about their fate my father only responded that wild men in human lands were bound to attract troublemakers sooner or later.
Eventually I began do doubt their very existence until I was old enough to venture into the world myself. On my travels I actually ran into a girl who I believed to be the very girl I've heard so many stories about. She was down on her luck and searched for her beastly family, so naturally I was overcome with the same generosity her stepfather exhibited in his tales - and took her by the hand, wishing for my favorite childhood story to reach a happy end."

Still practicing backgrounds and new shading stuff. Do you guys think the swing motion is kinda lacking too? Or is it just me?

I can tell there is meant to be a swing, yes. But it does look like it's not swinging hard enough.

Everything else is great, and love the Backstory. =3


kmau responds:

I think that way too, the swing doesn't have enough power. Glad you liked it though!

great stuff :D the picture didn't really have much to do with the description do, which was a let down, wudv worked betr if this piece was with a description of 'happy days of childhood spent learning from his father' or something and u had him meeting the girl or someting other than that its really gud, gotta say do, the description won more points than the picture for me :)

This was actually supposed to be a short animation that I may do in the future, hence the picture just shows one of the scenes from the narration.
