This is my first attempt at an animated project. Halfway through, I switched from using Photoshop to OpenToonz. Scenes were composited in After Effects.
A man wakes up, chained and naked in the woods. He's been left as a human sacrifice. He must attempt to escape the demon that chases after him.
A poll comics project: during the storyboarding process, readers voted on what happened next. Readers contributed details about the characters and the settings. Normally I turn the project into comics, but this time around I wanted to try my hand at animation. Characters who were based on reader input are put into the public domain (see http://www.pollcomics.com/wiki/doku.php?id=blood_opera for details- I need to update it with the latest character information).
