Here’s some more development stuff for “Sing a Worried Song”. The ghost is, of course, JD Wilkes, frontman of the band. He came along pretty fast, all I really had to change was his nose. Then I just drew a crap ton of old timey looking monsters and picked the ones I liked the most. The “Pig boy” and “Rooster” are references to Legendary Shack Shakers album covers. The Snake Priest was a fun idea but didn’t make sense for the video. I really loved that boar with the axe too. And finally the Devil, whom I designed last. JD said the first pass was too scary and not fun enough. Also that design seemed too hard to animate. A lot of rubber hose devils look the same so I didn’t want to do that. JD mentioned a horned skull idea. I think I finally nailed it with the “baboon” skull look.
