(...) There's a hole in the world like a great black pit
And it's filled with people who are filled with shit
And the vermin of the world inhabit it
But not for long...

They all deserve to die
Tell you why, Mrs. Lovett, tell you why

Because in all of the whole human race
Mrs Lovett, there are two kinds of men and only two
There's the one staying put in his proper place
And the one with his foot in the other one's face
Look at me, Mrs Lovett, look at you

No, we all deserve to die, even you, Mrs. Lovett, even I
Because the lives of the wicked should be made brief
For the rest of us death will be a relief
We all deserve to die (...)




Johnny Depp as Sweeney Todd and helena Bonham Carter as Mrs Lovett from Tim Burton's movie Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. That movie well... shocked me It was so grotesque... I'm not into musicals, or thrillers and for sure not dramas. But I liked it so much. All actors played their roles extremely well. And great singing! Johnny Depp has amazing voice ;)

This drawing is the biggest one I've ever done and it's also the first time I've ever portrayed woman, but since Mrs Lovett is one of main characters I just had to put her here. The worst part was her hair. Even now I'm not satisfied with the way it looks like. :/

Fantastic! Brilliant! Even if I didn't love Sweeney Todd (I do) I'd have to say "hats off" to the detail and emotion put in this picture.

Wow! At first glance, I thought this was a black and white screenshot! :D Wonderful drawing! Sweeney Todd is one of my all-time favorite movies. ^^

Also, um...I feel like a total jerk for pointing this out, but he's singing My Friends in this scene...Not Epiphany. Sorry! Please don't hate me!

I like this because I am huge Sweeney Todd fan and you did his face amazingly. However I am very unenthusiastic about her face. It looks aged and droopy with disinterest. So the good and bad counter each other leaving me with a simply uninterested feel
