Flowing Complexity by Muirin007 Flowing Complexity by Muirin007
"I am profoundly enchanted by the flowing complexity in you."

~John Keats, in a letter to Fanny Brawne

I found this still from "Passage" i.ytimg.com/vi/C3mFDR6pnX4/max… and I just HAD to draw Erik and Christine. I really wanted to emphasize the deeply spiritual, artistic connection between the two of them, something that transcends description and can only be captured in sensation. It's the way art or literature or poetry or music makes you feel. It's an exaltation of the soul. I like to think that Erik and Christine connect on that level. It's a "marriage of true minds."

Whoa. That got exceptionally deep exceptionally fast. :lol:

Phantom of the Opera belongs to Gaston Leroux.

I really do love how they don't have to be together, to be "together", if that makes somewhat of sense.

Beautiful! I love Christine's hair too! I wish that mine could be just as naturally thick and curly.

Oh, my word, Muirin. I have no idea how you can draw something so absolutely emotional. You've captured this feeling so well...

Um, yes yes yes to everything you wrote in the description. ;) Dang it, why can't they just be together? Well... it wouldn't work. But it WOULD and it's just so tragically... er... cathartic and spiritual and... yes.

Anyway, the swirls are really cool... I love it when you draw in blues. And Erik in his white shirt... Shows his redemptive side, I think. :) LOVELY.

I'm not even sure where to begin with how much I love this.  The colors are perfect.  Their expressions are perfect.  The connection you wanted to convey is there and it's perfect.  Absolutely incredible.  They both look like they're in emotional ecstasy.  Exquisite work.  Probably among, if not your best to date.
