“I remember there was mist… swirling mist upon a vast, glassy lake…. There were candles all around, and on the lake there was a boat… and in the boat, there was a man…..!
Who was that shape in the shadows? Whose is the face in the mask?”
Finally went back and finished this composition that I’d roughed out and posted *months* ago. First in a series of lots of Phantom vis dev work that I’ll be posting in the near future. I’m going back to my roots and building up my vis dev/ character design portfolio.
“Why, you ask, was I bound in chains in this cold and dismal place? Not for any mortal sin, but the wickedness of my abhorrent face!”
Figuring out how to translate the Phantom’s disfigured face has proven a lot more challenging than I expected. Here’s where I’m at so far… and yes, that’s Mads Mikkelsen in the middle of the three rough sketches.
Throwback time. Never finished this sketch of the floor show scene in RHPS, but I always kind of liked what I had started. Figured I might as well post this, since it’s probably gonna sit in Limbo till I do it completely over again. This is from 2011-12 (I think).
