I'm all for celebrating holidays far from their intended date. I'm planning my Thanksgiving dinner already. So when Craig Lew showed me his Lil Emo's Halloweemo in June, I was jumping up and down like a little kid. (Yes I have my costume picked out already.)
Craig's little niece was the inspiration for his animation. While dancing with demons seems pretty cool, he originally intended on making her a lion. "But as things progressed the lion with a long shaggy mane became the Lil Emo Girl."
You can learn more about Craig's inspiration, art and process with Poser and Anime Studio by reading his user story. And if you're heading to Comic Con, you can see him there and celebrate Halloween in July.
