I would like to complete this assignment digitally. While I can sketch traditionally, my coloring skills are stronger in digital form. Therefore, my digital work has a more finished look as opposed to just sketching. Also, I am very comfortable working with Autodesk Sketchbook, Adobe Illustrator, and Adobe Photoshop since all of my assignments up to now have been completed in those programs. As such, I plan to complete concept sketches traditionally in pencil, scan them, and refine them digitally.

Pitch: “The Wendigo” is a horror narrative aimed at a mature audience. It details the events of a college girl, and her group of friends as they search for the mysterious Wendigo creature to complete their final project for “Intro to the Occult” class. This story presents a situation of experiencing true despair in the face of innocent ignorance, as the group suffers a terrible fate for their desire to seek out the unknown without a care in the world.
I was trying to find a horror story as it would be easily applicable to any time period. As such, I found The Wendigo by Algernon Blackwood. My idea for this story is that since it is about a mythical beast, I could narrate the story in the modern day as the original premise takes place in the past.
