A lizard comes out of mothballs

I am so excited! I have resurrected an animatic for a short that I had started over 8 years ago. This character is close to my heart. I had presented the animatic at an ASIFA open screening years and years ago and I still have folk coming up to me to say that they remembered the animatic and when am I gonna finish it?
Thank you to all who have encouraged me to get back to work on this and for reminding me that this little guy is memorable!
Stay tuned!!

I was just noodling around last night. This is my tribute to Ray from Princess and the Frog-my favorite character! Last night I got inspired when I was at my friend's jazz show. I drew this on the back of a receipt and later painted it digitally. Dr. Facilier is sneaking up on him... So far all I know how to draw of him from memory is his hat and eyes!
