Puppet Girl

Hey :-) This is the first page of a 4 page story I'm doing. Sorry for the randomness, but here goes...the basic story plot is that a girl wishes to be a real puppet (bit of a play on Pinnochio wanting to be a real boy). A demon (or something...?) comes to her and grants her wish / makes a deal with her. Excited to get her wish she accepts and is transformed. But then her dream crashes down when she realizes that she loses her freedom as the demon controls her instead (puppets have to be moved by someone operating their strings). So bit of a "be careful what you wish for" story.

This character was just a doodle I produced a few months back. I recently found it and decided to attach a simple story to it.

I really like this more open style layout - inspired by the work of David Mack I displayed in an earlier post. What do we think....? :-\

something, or someone has cut her strings, but we don't get the visual anticipation before hand, or a visual reflective discovery afterwards (think of film) - so we are left hanging in the air - excuse the pun
