I agree to your wife it really doesnt give me the creeps :D
I still like it . Im creating a rpg-game for fun and i might maybe use this for a the sad backstory/flashback :P.
If i would use it a faster maybe more serious version of this would (suitable for battle ) be nice for a fight in which the character takes revenge on the villain or something like that...
In short well done !!
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
