Comic Book Environment

Here is the first project from my comic book illustration class. We had to create an environment with multiple characters interacting. A bar seemed like a good place for some mingling to happen so this is what I wound up with. Later in the semester we need to come up with a two page comic book, so if anyone out there is thinking "Geee, I always wished Dave would do a comic book about ______," let me know your ideas, as I have none of my own.

Oh and if anyone has been checking this thing going "what the heck is Dave doing with his life? Where are all the updates?" I'm hoping to get a few more finished projects up as the week grinds on.

Devil went down to Georgia

The devil went down to Georgia, he was looking for a soul to steal.
He was in a bind 'cos he was way behind: he was willin' to make a deal.
When he came across this young man sawin' on a fiddle and playin' it hot.
And the devil jumped upon a hickory stump and said: "Boy let me tell you what:
"I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too.
"And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you.
"Now you play a pretty good fiddle, boy, but give the devil his due:
"I bet a fiddle of gold against your soul, 'cos I think I'm better than you."

Then Johnny was all like, "Aw crap."

Over the summer I had the idea to illustrate some songs. Now I'm two weeks into school and somehow this is the only one that went anywhere. All the credit goes out to Charlie Daniels and his mad fiddle skillz.
