PotO: Angels Don't Cry by dalmuln PotO: Angels Don't Cry by dalmuln
It's been a while since I've attempted realism. However, I decided to give it a more painterly feel that downright copying a photograph completely.
This scene in the Phantom of the Opera Trailer was the most heart-wrenching of them all, I think ;_;
However, it was very difficult to make him look distraught, rather then giddy. =/ I'm still not sure if I've accomplished that feat. The quote is from the musical, and is one of the saddest lines, IMO. I thought it fit the pic.
The thumbnail will probably look cruddy, so you might wanna fullview ^^()

Isn't Gerry Butlar the smexiest phantom evverrr??? *dies*

Took many many hours
painted on photoshop

I luff that pic -added it to favorites- Yes, I agree, Gerard is better looking than Michael Crawford, but Michael's singing and disfigurment are much better! -is a Butler and Crawford phan-

In my opinion, the saddest line in the musical is this (made me cry o_o):

"This face which earned a mother's fear and loathing..."

Yes, I cried -bawls- SO SAD!!!! -sniffles-

Random question. The font - Bad Seed? (I'm a dork, I know)

this is fabulous. The thumbnail looks like a screenshot. I wish was talented. if I could draw only one thing I'd want to draw people (for reasons like this). :heart:

During this scene, I was whimpering and just wanted to reach out to him!
Had I actually been able to, I definately would have run up and hugged him so hard I would have tackled him to the ground. :glomp:

and indeed he is 'the smexiest phantom' ever..;)

I melt eveytime I hear him say 'you will curse the day you did not do all that the phantom asked of you!' (hence the signature :P)
I own the extended movie soundtrack and I'm addicted! :drool:

ooh, that was longer than I meant it to be...sorry for the rambles ^^;

oh it's so good! I had to go to at least 5 stores before I found it! well actually, I found it at FYE, the second store I went to, but it was much more expensive than anywhere else (I looked online). I ended up getting it at K-mart!
and just so you know, don't look at best buy because I don't believe they carry it at all. :)

Awesome picture - you capture his emotion well. 'The Phantom Of The Opera' and 'Jekyll & Hyde' have always been my two favorite broadway plays, and I'm looking forward to eventually seeing the new movie. It seems to be a fitting tribute, at least based on the trailers I've seen.

wow, that looks excellent. Hmm, you're right about Butler in the sense whatever is under the mask must be pretty horrific for him to hide away in the cellars of the Paris Opera house.
