A short suite for a comic panel

Short story short: I rarely can compose for something which is not for a project. Even if I try so damn hard to make music just for fun and learning, I just sit there on my desk and nothing happens. So I had this idea involving the extremely talented animator Michael J. Ruocco, who would recommend me a painting or similar I could make music for. This one has been made for a single panel from Tintin:

And now that I got a reason to compose music for, everything seems so easy! But I did drift off at the end. I think it's safe to say that more stuff like this will be coming.

Thank you for your help, Mike!

Go watch his animations, he's got some really good talent!

Too bad this is so short. Because this piece is just awesome. And it fits perfectly to the single panel you linked to in the comment section. I really would like to read the whole comic with your music in the background. :)

So, if you ever have too much time on your hands... why not try to put a Tintin comic into a flash, and composing the music for it? ^^

I am actually not that big a fan of Tintin - at least it was not a big part of my childhood. Nonetheless I am glad you like it.
Thanks for the review!
