With the Church and some buildings I'm ready to make the environment for a couple of shots... Here are the buildings built in Sketchup too. For the references I use a building in Portsmouth that I liked.

Two hours to do this.... needed something to practice so chose one and draw a very fast cartoon of the Chilean President, Sebastián Piñera.
|This is the final one... no details, fast painting.|
|Meet the real one!|

This is a storyboard I made for a short story written in 1917 by the Uruguayan writer Horacio Quiroga, called "El Almohadón de Plumas" (The Feather Pillow). It is a simple adaptation with simple characters.
|The young couple just got married, starting a new life together...|
|For three months - they had been married in April - they lived in a special kind of bliss.|
|Alicia passes the days on that hostile house trying not to|
think about anything till her husband arrived each evening.
|It is not strange that she grew thin. She had a light attack of influenza|
that dragged on insidiously for days and days.
|Jordan's doctor examined her with minute attention, prescribing calm and absolute rest.|
|Jordan kept her as the doctor said, trying to have her back as soon as possible.|
|When she awakened the following day, Alicia was worse.|
|The doctors returned, but to no avail.|
They saw before them a diminishing life, a life bleeding away day by day,
hour by hour, absolutely without their knowing why.
|Suddenly Alicia began to have hallucinations, vague images,|
at first seeming to float in the air, then descending to floor level.
|The lights were lighted all day long in her bedroom, and there was complete silence.|
Hours went by without the slightest sound.
|Finally, Alicia died.|
|The servant, when she came in afterward to strip the now empty bed,|
stared wonderingly for a moment at the pillow.
|Servant: "There are stains on the pillow that look like blood."|
|Jordan approached rapidly and bent over the pillow.|
Truly, on the case, on both sides of the hollow left by Alicia's head,
were two small dark spots.
"Hold it up to the light," Jordan told her.
|The servant raised the pillow but immediately dropped it and stood staring at it.|
|Jordan: "What is it?"|
|"It's very heavy," the servant whispered, still trembling|
|They carried it out of the room, and over the table...|
|...he ripped open the case and the ticking with a slash.|
|The top feathers floated away,|
the servant opened her mouth widely giving a scream of horror.
|In the bottom of the pillow case, among the feathers,|
slowly moving its hairy legs, was a monstrous animal,
a living, viscous ball. It was so swollen one could barely make out its mouth.
|Night after night, since Alicia had taken to her bed, |
this abomination had stealthily applied its mouth to the girl's temples,
sucking her blood.
