Happy birthday to us!

I first uploaded this baby one year ago today. It was months of work, and when I finally posted it I still wasn't 100% satisfied but I simply could not keep poor Abby waiting anymore. That shot during the car chase, where the trees start to strobe and disappear? You will never know how much that bothers me. But this was literally my first fully-animated anything (as opposed to superimposing the occasional mermaid tail or puddle of Posh Spice vomit in an Xtranormal cartoon) and I was learning as I went. The scene early on where the monster carries the bride out of the castle was the first time I animated anybody walking, ever. Taking stuff like that into account, I'm still pretty proud of my gross, sweet, stitched-together beastie.
