In the Path

This is an idea for an animated short I thought of. I haven't finalized the plot, and I don't have the technology to do what I want with the short yet. But I didn't want to forget the idea, so I drew it in pencil first. I won't give away the whole plot, but I can explain this picture at least. The person sleeping on the ground is a hiker who's trail is blocked by a large, smooth rock right in the middle of the path. As you can probably tell, this rock is alive in a way and has large eyes. Part of what I want to do with the animated short is see what kinds of emotions I can express just by moving the eyes around. That's moss on it's top-right corner and left side. I'm not sure that's clear. This image is actually from a long time ago, but I decided to get it back out today.

I haven't been posting lately due to schoolwork among other things. I'd apologize, but I don't think it's necessary in this case. I've started moving towards working with pens in my sketching. It's surprisingly relaxing not being able to erase mistakes on random drawings.
