Danse Macabre by Muirin007 Danse Macabre by Muirin007
I've always wanted to do a piece based on this fabulous composition: [link]
It's one of my favorites. I absolutely LOVE it. And I think it's perfect for Erik and Christine. Well, mostly for Erik. He oozes creepy.
If I could animate, I would absolutely animate a short film of the two of them dancing to this with a bit of a Burton flair. Can't you picture that? And I'd have them gradually picking up speed as the song gets faster, and there'd be a bunch of shadow...ghost...dancer people in the background. And at that very last dramatic note, Erik would gesture abruptly, and everything would disappear. Then he would bow slowly, and then look up at the "camera," and everything would fade to black except for his glowing yellow eyes....
Yay for hypothetical animation sequences!
It was fun to experiment with color and lighting like this. I used my favorites--colored pencil, marker, and ink. :) This is a terrible scan, though, so I'll upload a better one later.

Much love to Camille Saint-Saëns!!

Insightful. That is actually one of my personal favourite pieces of music. You choose the perfect colours to capture the emotionalism and I think you made an overall splendid composition.

Very beautiful. Your Christine sometimes reminds me of a young Linda Eder, when she was in her Jekyll and Hyde days.

Again, the coloring on this work is fantastic! It's deep and passionate like their relationship is, and I love it. Good job.
