Dr. Shroud: Mask Pt. 1

Author Comments

This is a new special series entitled "The Mask of Victor Graves", a short two or three part cartoon comprised of excerpts from the upcoming "The Boy in the Box", which reveals the harsh history of Victor Graves, a.ka. Dr. Shroud.

While this part still appears in "The Boy in the Box", I felt that it was self-containing and long enough to warrant a series of its own. Plus, I felt that it was too long between series, so here is a little something in the meantime.


Today's been a good day for the portal...

This is reminicent of the old silent films from the 20s (obviously). The story is told easily and the animation (the lighting especially) fit perfectly.

It did hit a few snags where it just seemed to drag along (dwelt too much on the photo and a few other places).

Not exactly sure about vampire lore, but I can't say I ever heard of turning a vampire child into a human... A dampiel(sp?) is a half-vampire/half-human...

Mah... not enough on that train of plot for me to make any conclusive comments.

You are correct---a "dhampir" is a product of a vampire man and mortal woman that has an immunity to vampires. In the world of Dr. Shroud however, all bets are off. There are quite a few things with vampire lore that I altered to fit the story better, especially the fact that the boy (Dr. Shroud) is a bloodsucking killer.

Thanks for the review!


Quite classy

My question is, how did they have a vampire boy anyways? Or am I getting my vampiric mythologies mixed up? Anyway, loved the retro silent film look, and slick visuals. And even the dialogue was well written, most artists cant get that down. Now where's part 2?!

Hehe Old movie goodness

That was pretty nice some good (cheesy) silent movie goodness. the music was even cheesy...which in this case is a good thing. If you where going for the ancient film look and style you nailed it. Nice job.


i love your work
