The Phantom of the Opera is possibly my only favorite stage play. In this illustration, I tried out a style found in comics where the figures are tilted within a frame. The drawing looks fine when viewed both ways, portrait or landscape. Though they are standing still, there's dynamism in the composition!
What do you think of The Phantom of the Opera - was he a fiend or just a hopeless romantic? You know, he died of a broken heart in the end.
"If I am the phantom, it is because man's hatred has made me so. If I am to be saved it is because your love redeems me." ? Gaston Leroux, Author of The Phantom of the Opera
