I made this for the Wild West VFX/Film Character Challenge. I almost ran out of time with the Priest for a couple of reasons. For one, I was splitting my time between this and the other Character Challenge that was going on at the same time. I was also trying a lot of new things. While that's great for learning, it's not optimal for a timed competition. So I hit a dead end and chose to start again in the last week or two, scaling back significantly on what I had in mind. I'm happy with what I came through with, though I'm aiming for even greater work in the future.
