This was a fairly unplanned sketch that took on a life of its own and just kept going. I had a very specific idea for the lighting right from the start - a very blue, slightly misty early morning, fairly dark, with the figure struck by a bit of sunlight to pick him out from the dark background, and a gradually lightening sky. I am uncertain of my success.

The character is "Silver" Will Robinson, a one-armed barkeep working at the Beached Whale, a pub situated inside a grounded whaling ship. He has a magicked wooden prosthetic under that glove and sleeve. Popular guy with the ladies.
