Beware the Demon Barber by Leopreston Beware the Demon Barber by Leopreston
Finally! Finally! Aha ha ha ha haaa!!! :crazy:

I should like to officially congratulate this piece on managing to drive me completely mad. Yes, it finally happened. Ha ha... urgh. =p

Aaanyways, my latter ‘work in progress’ upload tells me that I’ve been working on this since March, and it sure as hell feels like it! Even though so many details have changed since I first started working on this, I still really, really wanted to see this finished! So, I stuck with it to the end and hopefully it was worth the effort! :)

Btw, I’ll just be repeating myself when it comes to the details of this piece, so you might want to check out the sketch: [link] and the work in progress: [link] for a description. ;)

I'm really late commenting on this piece XD lol
It looks great tho :3
It's gives me creepy Jack the Ripper vibes especially from the background which the level of detail is amazing, I need to work on backgrounds myself but doing this would send me mad to the point were I lob my laptop outta the window XD

Hey! Thank you for taking the time to comment (and it’s never too late on this site!) I know what you mean about backgrounds. They are certainly a challenge! This wasn’t as painful as it seems, though, as most of the texture was pre-defined in the pencil sketch. It was just a case of shading various brown tones behind it and adding paper grains to the mix. I’m glad that it’s well and truly done and dusted now though! 😂

He considers himself only at level 60% on the 'creepy scale'. He has a way to go before reaching ultimate creepy. ;D

You should do Pennywise. You already pulled off making Sweeny Todd more creepy, maybe you can do it with a killer clown.

Believe me, I'm very tempted! Hard to make something more creepy when it's already on a state of perfection however! 😀

At a theater where I live, they're going to do Sweeney Todd! I'm a bit scared to see it, though, from what I've heard about the "meat pies." ID

Honestly, you'll love it. The original musical has such great (dark) humour. I myself went to see an amateur production of it a few years back and enjoyed it very much. You'll have a great time. ;)
