Just a little update on the piece of Phantom of the Opera art that I posted recently, showing the piece in progress. I've since spent many more hours inking it and cleaning it up, which resulted in the following line art:
...to which I have now started adding some colour:
I've barely started shading it at this point, but I'm certainly looking forward to getting to the finished product.
These types of exercises are good for my art in pretty much every way: I get to practice anatomy, perspective, expression, drapery, inking, colour, shading... and why not work on these things using characters I enjoy?
More to come soon!
