Surrender to Your Darkest Dreams by Muirin007 Surrender to Your Darkest Dreams by Muirin007
....and you'll live as you've never lived before.

Have you ever heard a particularly great piece of music and felt like that? Just totally emotionally moved and inspired? Like you're bursting to the brim with creativity? Erik's voice definitely does that to Christine. :) Oh, if she'd only waited it out a bit longer!

Just to clear things up: Erik's mask is not on the wrong side of his face. As usual, I drew a Leroux-inspired Erik with a full-face Leroux deformity. So, naturally, Erik would wear a full face mask. I guess I threw Leroux's Erik into the ALW production.

Which would be pretty cool, if you think about it!

(Used a reference from the Las Vegas "Phantom" production.)

Watercolor and colored pencil.

Phantom Leroux (and Webber and Rice, in the lyrical sense).

In many ways I think this is how the phantom of the opera should be done. One day I'd love to see a movie that really pays tribute to the original story by following as closely as possible with minimal compromises on it. I remember finding your art when I was googling some to see it and I really enjoyed it. I remembered it now and was happy to enjoy it again. Excellent work.

He looks adorable, and so does Christine. 
And isn't it ironic how he'd have a long nose... if he had one?

Hi there! I don't know how active you are here so I hope you get this message, but anywhoodles, I just wanted to say that I'm absolutely in love with your art and all the things that you write to go along with the pieces! Absolutely beautiful, they bring to life what I always wanted to see in my mind's eye when reading anything relating to Phantom of the Opera. I hope that makes sense. Anyway, these are gorgeous, so glad to have stumbled upon them. :D 

Cheers,
K.

It's almost... dreamlike, if not a little grim, exactly how Erik's "strange new world" would be. Beautiful.

he is incredible! absolutely incredible! I know you said you based him on Leroux, but honestly, he sort of reminds me of Basil Rathbone, who did an excellent Phantom on the radio in the 40's. :D

'Kay, all of your PotO stuff is amazing, so I'll just say that here instead of spamming all over your stuff. But this is also amazing; you have an incredible style, and your understanding of anatomy (even exaggerated) is fantastic!:heart:  Again, I'm not sure I can put into words how much I love this, so I'll stop and leave wondering if what I'm saying makes me sound like a total creep. :-/

When I see this picture I imagine Erik Singing and for some odd reason he sounds like a cross between geard Butler and Micheal crawford, but that's just me I don't know about you.
Anywho, you are a amazing please keep gracing us with your wonderful drawings :D

My hope is that when ALW's PotO eventually gets a revival (despite the fact that I love its nonstop running everywhere) they give Erik the full-face mask. And maybe make Chris blonde again?

Amazing, as all your pieces are! I was immediately reminded of "The Music of the Night," though I am not sure if you meant for it to take place during the song. (Though I suppose the title sort of suggests it.) Anyhow, I'm a huge fan of your work, and I think that everything you do sets you apart from other artists. Your style is, I find, very unique.
