A quick and super messy Thank you sketch for all my followers. Sure, Erik does not care, but as I am glad and thankful that You like and follow my work, a little thank you and welcome to my new followers!
Incredibly sad news! It seems Universal Studios Hollywood will be tearing down their historic “Stage 28” (463 signatures on petition)
Sign this petition and help save the PHANTOM OF THE OPERA set from being destroyed!! Please pass this on!!
This is one of the rare occasions were I not post art but reblog. I think this is the wrong decision, as it will wipe out a very important part of movie history. I would even go so far and compare it to plans of demolitioning the famous Bates house with the motel from the Psycho-Set.
A little warm up sketch that evolved into a bigger warm up sketch. I directly worked with fineliners and my ink brush pen, without any penciling. I just added some watercolour for the background.
And it’s just my depiction of little modern-day Erik crying his eyes out to his only friend, a tame fox going by the very easy name “Monsieur Renard” (Mister Fox). The title is a slight reference to Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s “Le petit prince” where the little prince encounters a fox too.
And that’s how the #drawing looks complete and with #watercolours slapped onto it.
I like to think of Erik as a person who takes great care in their fashion and appearance, as he lacks simply natural beauty. So he looks careful after his clothes and his posture. I have seen plenty of people wearing beautiful fasion but really having a very sloppy posture. In all fairness, I can’t rule out that I fall in the same trap. :D
A little ink-sketch of Luna, the photographer and Erik’s flat mate in my modern day version of the Phantom of the Opera. I imagine her as a fan of more classical movies with the stars like Audrey Hepburn, Natalie Wood and Sophia Loren. And I think that she likes to cloth herself more in the fashion of the early/mid 60s.
Weird or downright depressing sentences from my French course on Duolingo. Today the Erik-Edition with, “est-il laid?” (Is he ugly?), “oui, il est laid.” (Yes, he is ugly.) I can’t help but turning everything related to ugliness into an Erik-thing :]
Just a quick sketch of a drawing I tried my hands on recently. Sometimes I tend to overwork parts and mess everything up. When I just make an easy sketch, everything turns out far better than in a planned drawing. Maybe I tend to overthink the things too much.
And now I want to thank you everyone for mentioning my little production in their list of interesting and follow-worthy phantom-related blogs. :)
