The Breaking Point

Drama

Everything has a breaking point. Sticks. Stones. People. Relationships. The question is, can you ever put it back together?

School Assembly

Action/Comedy

A troublesome bully pushes a shy gamer too far.


Awesomesauce!

Action/Comedy

While on an epic quest for friendship, a young scientist accidentally unleashes a giant monster on his school, and must take super heroic action to clean up his mess.

I really wanted to explore a story similar to the Lion and The Mouse from Aesop’s Fables. In that story, the Mouse accidentally wakes up the Lion, and the Lion spares the Mouse’s life instead of killing him. Later, when the Lion gets a thorn in his paw, only the Mouse is small enough to remove it for him!

For my story, I decided to exchange the Mouse for an all-powerful Superhero, and really turn up the volume on our Lion, a giant Slime Monster.

When doing a superhero story, I always start off by doodling the gold standard, Superman.

The Alter Ego!
Designing the Alter Ego. Leroy is the name of my Great Uncle, and is super fun to say.
The Kaiju Monster
Designing the Kaiju Monster. I ended up going with a giant slime monster because it offered the most flexibility with comedic value in the action
