The Phantom of the Opera by MicahJo The Phantom of the Opera by MicahJo
*cries* Don't make fun of me...I'm really sad and disappointed, I spent forever on this and it didn't come out how I wanted it to...At all, but...It's not THAT bad, don't hate me x_x It looks better on paper, truely! It does.
I looked and looked for a good Michael Crawford pictures, but I couldn't find any I liked that were big enough to draw from. Otherwise, I DEFINITELY would have drawn him, of course :D

So yes, Phantom of the Opera...Colored pencils o.o There goes two nights I'll never get back x_x I liked the movie, I liked it a lot and I've never seen the Broadway. I really want to now though, of course. I wanted to go before the movie, but that's just because I love almost all theater =P I didn't like Gerard Butler, but I really loved Emmy as Christine. Her voice was so pretty! She's pretty, and I wanted to draw this picture because of her. (And because I've never done that view before), oh my goodness, it looks horrible and I took a hellofa long time drawing her. (More than the Phantom, I couldn't get him right at all so I just moved on and tried drawing Christine.)
I kept trying to fix their faces with color until I realized that it WAS the drawings that were wrong. I couldn't start over though...I was really proud of it at 4 in the morning. All of my drawings look good when I'm half asleep, but then you wake up the next morning and look at it, and realize it's not as good as you thought..

It's not all THAT bad though...This is my first realistic picture that has two people in it. That was the hardest part...Getting then together in the right place and having them be the right size-ish. I did sort of okay on that...It was just hard! I'm not that great of a drawer I guess, I had so much trouble on so many parts of this x_x For how difficult it was to do, I like it, lol. My mom thinks I'm improving :bounce: She also wanted me to call it "Music of the Night" because it's her and my favorite song. So many pretty words in one place...I can't not like it @@

Originally drawn for Or...It was going to be for her with the Michael...I doubt you want this one, ne? XP I'm going to ask Ms. Peck if I can enter it in the Puyallup fair anyway...Then all the good artists will laugh at my shame @_@ Yippy

Welp, enjoy XD I guess..?

You're disappointed? But this is honestly soooo good-I especially love the colors! The Phantom's head might be a tad bit too small in proportion to Christine's, but that's all! And in two nights, you're so fast

Usually when people add rainbow colors to a drawing, it looks horrible. But you make the different rainbow colors fit so well! I love it!

i think it's wonderful. I can't believe you did this with coloered pencil, looks more like paint. I know what it is like to work hard on a piece that never seems to work, but this was worth your effort. I love it.
