I've lost A LOT of sleep over this. You have no idea.
To me, an example of great film making is when something sticks with you days, weeks, months after you've seen a movie. The last movie to do that to me was the entire lantern sequence in Disney's Tangled. Something about it was just so hauntingly beautiful.
This is a sort of tribute to that, and to one of my favorite shows right now.
I've had the idea to do a comic based on that sequence for awhile now. Although the concept always remained the same, the execution was always in flux. Eventually I settled on something that is pretty faithful to the original scene in the movie. The primary reason for that was really more technical than anything else. I had a few other ideas floating around but they would require me to create landscapes and backdrops I knew I couldn't do myself.
Also for those that I know will probably pick apart my word choice, song lyrics don't always translate well into words. I did my best to work the song into the comic. I had to change some phrasing and some words to make it more appropriate and to have it flow better with what I had. Despite that, I'm not 100% happy with it, but I don't think I would ever be satisfied unless I would've managed to squeeze the entire song into it. I think it could have flowed better if I wrote something myself, but I'm no writer.
I'm never doing something this big and complex again. This is also bar none the cheesiest and dorkiest thing I've ever done.
Please don't sue me Disney!
See how it's made! [link]
