My PotO Drawings :D

Post  Melly on Tue Feb 21, 2012 2:21 pm

Hello, I'm an illustrator and I'd like to share with you my PotO drawings Smile

This is a very "quick" series (of the dresses I'd dream to make or finish!) with no line or specific shading Smile I usually make these ones during my lunch break which is VERY long by the way >_<

Each pic took me about 30 min, they are all made with Photoshop Smile









This one uses a longer technique Smile

Are we allowed to know what those are, or are they secret? Smile
You should do a big PONR one with the Phantom and Christine!

Oh! I made a sketch of this! (PONR)Very Happy
But I'm not satisified with this one yet Smile

Well, for now I was planning to sketch this kind of thing (I'm in love with those TUTUs!)



I can't draw complicated pictures since I only have my lunch break to draw for me (and I still have commissions to finish - people asking their character drawn by me, etc... It helps me to finance the costume I make during the Week end haha).

Aw, please show the sketch! The sylvan glade picture sounds cool. Are you going to focus on a particular production for that pic, or will it just be random?

I don't have the sketch here since I'm at work (baaaad girl!) but it was nothing but "potatoes shapes that only me can understand haha"! If I think of it I'll show you, but for the moment my idea is to restart everything from the beginning Smile I wanted the phantom to be barely visible, you know, with his black costume Smile

Concerning the ballerinas I think that I'll draw only one girl with the flowered ark Smile I'll use the same technique as the other drawings, with this kind of "pastel" rendering Smile

Your work is so gorgeous!

I hope to see more stage-show drawings! The Wishing dress and the Amnita dress are truly beautiful!

I love your style. It reminds me of the new Disney Princess's merchandise. You're very talented. Smile

Thanks a lot!

Yes, Disney inspired me a lot and these movies are one of the strongest reason that revealed the artist in me Smile So it's a part of my general style Smile

Oh, that one's gorgeous! I particularly like the use of highlights for the Phantom's cloak.

I've often gotten those vibes from seeing the scene, and I think it might be intentional from the costume designer. It's a robe traditionally associated with death figures, both in sculptures, in Grim Reaper depictions and in death personifications in popular culture. One example is Death from Monty Python's "Meaning of Life":



But I would assume the movie Amadeus, which ALW has admitted served as inspiration for him, also influenced the design. In the Don Giovanni (Don Juan) performed there, they have a long table with red table cloth, decked with finery. Don Giovanni and his servants are dressed in Renaissance styles clothes, and in enters a black draped Death (here in the figure of a statue whom Don Giovanni mockingly invited for dinner). The overall design is not too unlike Phantom's own Don Juan.



In Mozart's opera the statue descends down to hell through the floor, and drags Don Giovanni with him. Makes me wonder if the following scene of Phantom is a meta reference, since they too descend "down to hell":

"Down once more to my dungeon of my black despair, down we plunge to the prison of my mind...
Down this path into darkness deep as hell!"



But I'm digressing.... I'm loving the apple PONR new Don Juan illustration!

Operafantomet > thanks for these details Smile this is really funny since I've named this illustration 'the Angel of Death on my deviant art gallery! I've always seen the metaphor of Death here. It's interesting to learn how ALW came to this idea Smile

Thanks again everybody!

Given the sensuality of the scene, I wonder if there's a "little death" pun going on somewhere as well...

Maybe the new tour should throw a midget Don Juan in there just to make it more obvious Smile

And somewhere, Joel Schumacher is slapping is forehead and saying "That's it! I should have put the midget in the Don Juan scene--that would have fixed everything!" tongue

Somebody stop him so I can do the slapping for him. I'll even bring my own hammer to do so Smile

After looking at your deviantART page, I soooo want to make Melly's costume from the Painful Day picture. Also, I'm in love with your art nouveau drawings. I just love your style. Very Happy

I somehow missed all the fuss here.

Melly, you are quite talented! Love how much fidelity you have to the stage costumes while still retaining your own fun, distinct style. That last PonR one with the shadowing Phantom is really fantastic with the way you've employed the contrasts of warm and cool colors to depict the Phantom and Christine, respectively.

I look forward to seeing more of your work in the future and thank you for sharing Smile
