Hi guys! SO GUESS WHAT. The fabulous @baneismydragonis not only amazing at writing, drawing, and being a really cool person, but is also ridiculously talented musically. She arranged AND sang the parts for the original animatic I made for @krzed, and it is SOOOOO magical to be able to finally HEAR the lyrics!!
As you might recall from the fanfiction, Marinette and Chat use the Phantom of the Opera song “All I Ask of You” to express their love for each other. For the original animatic it would have been nice to be able to use a vocal track, except since the male and female vocals are swapped in the fic (which I LOVE because it changed the whole dynamic of the song), it was not possible.
So, enter Bane!! All the music from the moment Marinette starts singing til the very end of the video was arranged and sung by her. It’s been a really busy past few months but I finally got around to re-cut and edit the video (plus added a few unused panels from the original), so here it is! I hope you like it! Thanks so much Bane and Krzed!!!
“I was told for the first time in my life that I would have to give more eyes and hands and all that kind of stuff. I have my reservations about all that. I mean think the Phantom is not about that, solely.
It’s a funny thing though, most of the bad side of his face or the deformed side of his face, which is a birth defect, is covered for most of the show.
And really I think that this is the side that’s deformed [pointing to the not deformed and not covered side]. This is supposed to be his good side, but in fact this is the evil side. The side behind the mask is really the good side, because that’s the true person.”
