Picture Saturday- I can't stop drawing Phantom

The problem is, I keep refueling the obsession.

I think it was actually starting to wear off, and then we decided to watch it again. (Not the 25th, no, we have another version, where we know the guy who played the phantom and it's very sad.)

Anyway, so we watched it, and I'm back to the lalalalala-POTO-is-life, and it's actually getting a bit worrisome.

Not really, I mean, I spammed with Brothers In Arms fanart last year, and that ended eventually. (Cait, I will get you your SPN Fanart soon, I swear!)

I couldn't really draw this week because I had a sense of impending doom hanging over my head, and I can't draw when I'm stressed out. (The sense of doom was caused by a jury summons, which I did not end up having to attend, Deo Gratias.) So instead of being productive, I binge watched some TV shows and decided to partake of the Supernatural Rewatch.



Anyway, I think I shall do a life-updatey post next week. (Because my life is just so freaking exciting!)*

*I'm joking. My life is beyond boring, and I like it that way. 


Right so!

1.) Candence asked me to draw her blog's sidebar image, so... She gave me some ideas for what she wanted, and I basically went nuts.



2.) So many ideas came pouring in...




3.) Mmmmm yass.



4.) This one did not turn out so well but whatever...


Using just a tiny bit of color may very well be my new favorite thing, you never know. What with not having jury duty, my mind is full of drawings now.

5.) If you guys get tired of Phantom Fanart let me know, and I'll post it to tumblr instead. Or I'll break it up. Or something. But let me know!

Here is the colored version of the Think of Me I did last time. I like it better colored, it makes me really happy. 


6.) And here we have two of the same picture. One before I colored it, and one after. I like both, and I like the way the pencil sketch looks refined and rough at the same time. YEAH!




7.) The girl I started and didn't finish because it was like 10pm and I wanted bed.



8.) Another before and after look at a phantom art.... I was experimenting with expressions....


Angry Raoul Teeth...


9.) Annnnd finally, we have the completed one from last time. I really like adding red to the phantom pictures. Don't ask, I couldn't say why. BUT LOOK AT THEIR EXPRESSIONS! They have nice faces, and I liked the whole look of Christine and Raoul, and the Phantom's face makes me really happy, because he's disfigured and it's awesome.


Okay! So! Question time:

Favorite drawing? (pick one. Or two. But no more than that lol.)
Tired of Phantom?
Do you like the minimal color ones? 
Do you need a blog header drawn? 

Mkay, now I go.

Treskie out.

  1. Amazing drawings! My favorite is the second one with the flowers,on the girl's hair in color. Color makes the drawings pop out and come to life kind of look. :)

    I would love a new banner drawn by you, but I don't want to burden you. You must be real busy. And I have to thank you Treskie for your prayers. My family and I sure need them.

    God bless you always! ❤️

    1. Thank you! :) Yeah, that one turned out really well. She kinda reminds me of Alice in Wonderland. I'm getting better at color too, so I'm starting to *like* using it. XD

      Well if you do want one, I don't mind doing it at all, just email me something that you had in mind, MKAY? Yeah, I'll definitely keep breaking.

      God bless. <3

  3. My favorite of all these is the colored All I Ask of You one. It's awesome in color. And the sidebar picture you did for Cally is perfect for her blog.

    Psshhhh, who gets tired of Phantom??

    I think the minimal color works quite well.

    Actually... Maybe. At some point. XDD

    1. lol... which one? I REALLY LIKE HOW CALLY'S SIDEBAR TURNED OUT. XD

      HAR. Ehm. I'm not. I don't think I"m gonna be anytime soon.

      Me too. It's really fun to do just a touch of color for a POP.

      Sweet, let me know. :)

  4. I CAN ONLY PICK ONE DRAWING???????????????? *SHRIEKING NOISES*

    Okay.

    *takes deep breath* theyareallamazing

    BUT

    I simply adore number two, with the blonde girl in the blue dress. I WAS LIKE DYING. LIKE WHAT EVEN. IT IS SO BEAUTIFUL. I COULD CRY.

    And of course I LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE the one that ended up on Cally's sidebar.

    (that was two)

    Tired of the Phantom, yes, but of your drawings? NEVER. I ADORE THEM ALL.

    I LIKE THE MINIMAL COLORED ONES. I LIKE THE FULL COLOR ONES. I LIKE THE BLACK AND WHITE ONES. They just all are unique and awesome.

    I would do drastic things for a blog header or anything drawn by you for me. BECAUSE YOUR ART.

    IS

    *takes in a deep breath, then shouts it from the rooftops*

    AMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAZINGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG.

    1. *SHRIEKS BACK, BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT i DO.*

      THE BLOND HAPPENED WHEN IT WAS REALLY GREY AND RAINY AND I NEEDED SOME COLOR PRONTO. BUT YEAH, I LOVE HOW SHE TURNED OUT, SHE'S SO PRETTTAAAAY.

      Ehehe. I thought you put her up to asking me, but you didn't.

      *Squeaks* HOW DARE YOU BE TIRED OF PHANTOM.

      Drastic things? LIKE ADMIT THAT COUNTRY MUSIC DOESN'T SUCK ALL THE TIME?????

      Thank you, thank you. *bows from adjacent rooftop*

    2. .....well, not that drastic.....

    3. JUST ADMIT THAT IT'S NOT ALL AS BAD AS YOU THINK, HOW STUBBORN ARE YOU

  5. Favorite drawing? (pick one. Or two. But no more than that lol.) Number 3 :D
    Tired of Phantom? No, not really.
    Do you like the minimal color ones? I prefer the coloured ones to the black and white ones if that helps... :)
    Do you need a blog header drawn? Actually yes... but no at the same time lol. My header is fine, but on my sidebar there is this "WELCOME" paragraph thing, and originally it had a photo of me (but it was an awkward photo so I took it down) and I think it would look amazeballs if there was actually a cartoon version of me because then its still private but people have a vague idea of what I look like :D

    So yeah, if you were happy to do that than AWESOME!!! But I don't know how to get money to you :(

  8. Favorite drawing--half finished girl and colored-in Go, go now Phantom one.
    I will never tire of Phantom.
    Minimal color is wonderful, as is no color and lots of color. :)

    1. Aw, really? The half-finished girl IS pretty good, despite the fact that she is not complete. ;) AHAAGH I LOVE THAT ONE TOO!

      So you just like all of it. I like that. lol.

      Well, you should get one. :)

  9. You and copics go very well together, my friend. I LOVE THE WAY YOU USE THEM.
    Okay. So. Favorite drawing... I LOVE THEM ALL, THOUGH. (sorry for all the caps... I just get excited.)
    *ahem* I reeeally like number 2. The colors are so beautiful and I love her pose. ;A;. Also, number 8. The poses are really awesome, and I also like their expressions and the difference between the sketch and the final product is fun to look at. :D
    I just re-watched POTO, (not the broadway one, sadly.. I need to watch it) so I'm loving all of these Phantom drawings :D I've had POTO songs stuck in my head for like... The past week. It's fantastic.
    Anyhoo- KEEP DRAWING!! I need to get my life back together and start drawing again.
    Can't wait to see more of your aaaaart!

    1. Aaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. That's so NAICE of you. I'm finally getting a feel for them, and they are *the best*
      I LOVE RANDOMLY USING CAPS TOO, SO NO WORRIES. ;)
      Thanks, I'm kinda really proud of that one. Her HAIR.
      You think so? Mmmm, I was irritated at their faces, because normally my faces are somewhat more attractive, and stuff, and things, so yeah. I like her clothes though, YASS. So thanks. XD
      WHAT THE BROADWAY ONE IS ON NETFLIX. WATCH IT. WATCH IT NOW. Phhhbhth, having it stuck in your head for a week is nothing. It's been stuck in mine for... for... holy crap like over a month now. *eyeballs self with concern*

      THANK YOU, I SHALL. Yeah you do, because I like it when you do sketch dumps. Makes me verra happy.

      LAAAAAA, me yours too. Ehem.

      kay bai.

  10. Whenever I watch or hear anything to do with Phantom, the same thing happens to me. OBSESSION TAKEOVER. I go to graveyards and sing 'Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again', I look through all my Phantom memorabilia, and I (used) to go in my Phantom themed room (it's currently a storage room for other people's stuff and it stresses me out so I usually avoid it).

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who obsesses over Phantom! I must be somewhat normal then ;)

    I NEVER TIRE OF YOUR PHANTOM DRAWINGS. I love them. Keep them coming, please! I really like the 'Go now, and leave me' drawing. And the last one. And the first one. Oh goodness, I like all of them! I am loving your use of color! Lots of color makes me happy :)

    I don't need a blog header at the moment buuuuut would you be willing to draw me some Phantom paper dolls? Based off of the 2004 movie costumes? I don't remember how much you listed your custom paper dolls for on Etsy, but maybe you could make a reserved listing or something? What say you? Interested? Let me know :)

    Jury duty would have me stressed :P I haven't been summoned....yet. But now that I've said that I probably will be :P Glad you lucked out!

    1. Same here. Except I think it had been like almost a year since I'd actually sat down and listened to it. (I dunno, I don't usually wait that long in between, but it was a rough year so...) But yeah the relisten really got me all obsessed again, and stuff... and yeah. DRAWINGSSSSSS. YOUR PHANTOM ROOM IS A STORAGE ROOM? NOOOO, I LOVED THAT ROOM!!!!!!!! I sang Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again for class, and I made people cry and it was kind of the highlight of that class... XD

      Hate to burst your bubble, but just because I too obsess doesn't make you normal. It make us both weird, and that's okay, because weird people rooock.

      SWEET!!!!!!!! I shall do my best, the love is strong still. :) The Go Now and Leave Me one made me sad, because Christine and Raoul are so cute together, but it's sad that the Phantom is alooone. XD Color is starting to make me happy too, because I'm figuring out how to use it and that's fun. :)

      I would LOVE to draw you paper dolls! THAT WOULD BE SO FUN!!! omg. I don't remember how much I listed them for either. I shall take a look. And yeah, reserved listing would be fine. Shoot me an email with an idea of how many outfits you'd like, yeah? XD

      Soooooooooo stressed, I didn't sleep. lol. DON'T JINX YOURSELF! IT'S AWFUL!! lol glad I lucked out too.

    2. It's been a long while since I've watched or listened to anything Phantom :P I need to make that a priority! Phantom makes everything better.

      YES, I LOVED IT TOO. But for the past year Robert and I have been storing my sister's and her husband's household belongings in our basement and various rooms while they plan and build their house. Hopefully everything will go back to normal (before I go nuts) and I have my music room delightful phantomized (it's totally a word) once again.

      *GASP* My last hope, my final ties to normality, severed. Gone. Pitifully extinguished! Lol, I'm good with weird :D I've always known deep, deep down that I have never been and will never be normal. It makes me question why anyone would want to be normal when weird is just so darn awesome. Yep, we definitely rock.

      I KNOW, it's heart-wrenching! Poor Phantom.

      YAY!!!!!! I just e-mailed you :)

    3. Maaaan you should definitely watch it! The 25 Anniversary is on neeetflix! It's also on youtube HEEERE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Er_E_xh90hQ. Now you have no excuse.

      Well that's really nice of you, because if I had a phantom room, I'd be really grouchy if it had to be turned into a storage unit lol. How soon do you think, til it's done??

      LOL RIGHT? So sad, all gone. I've always liked weird better anyway. Normal is really boring. XD

      Poor li'l phantom man.

      WHEE! *goes to check*

  11. I LOVE THEM ALL ESPECIALLY THE PHANTOM ONES GAH

    I love the "Think of Me" one now that it's colored. AGH I gotta watch it again but I probably won't since ADELAIDE WATCHED IT WITHOUT ME. I will never get over the betrayal. Wretch, wretch.

  12. Oo, I love #3! The blog sidebar with the girl and the book. It's awesome! Plus, yes the minimal color makes it stand out. I love it!

    One never tires of the Phantom! Bring it on! (I know you talked about doing a post on why you prefer the Phantom to Rauol. . . I guessing that's your preference, it seems that way at least. . . back to focusing- so did you do that post and I just missed it? Or is it still to come?) Also Phantom fanart does look good with red. I've no idea why. But it does.

    Oh! Oh! *claps hands* I have an idea. You should do Leverage art some time. Maybe. . . you know, one day. It would be awesome!

    I love that song. "Think of me, think of me softly. . ." I don't know the words well, but now the tune is stuck in my head. I think I have to give PoTO a rewatch tomorrow.

    1. Thank you! The girl and the book was so fun, and her hair turned out well, and I just really love the whole look. YAY for minimal color. XD

      Lalalalala! I will! Because Phantom is fabulous. XD OOH yes, I'm going to to a post defending my ship. Although it's going to be defending Raoul and Christine, because even though the Phantom is a sad potato, he's still creepy and murder-y and, yeah... Raoul is awesome. But no, I haven't done it yet, I have trouble writing about stuff I really care about sometimes. lol. ;) Right? what is it about the red??

      I KNOW I SHOULD TO LEVERAGE ART! But see, Leverage is something I really, really care about, and for some reason I get blocked on certain things. But it's weird Because I love Phantom to death and I can art about it no problem, but leverage, I go to draw and it's like, "what is pencil?" and it's very frustrating. I need to do it when I'm not thinking about it. XD

      The problem with Think of Me is that there are like five different versions of it and I know the most obscure one, so yeah. Have fun learning the lyrics. XD

      Delete
    2. I'm with you about Raoul. Because, yeah, the Phantom is insane and murderous. . . plus he's way older than Christine.

      It would be neat to hear what someone who prefers the Phantom would say. Considering his villainous ways and how psychologically messed up he is, how would someone rationalize that preference? It is beyond me.

      Delete
    3. Right!? he's a lot older than Christine! Wasn't she supposed to be like 17 or something? Creepy!!

      They say that Erik was just misunderstood, and he really loved Christine, and Raoul was boring. *face palm*

  13. MY CONFESSION: I only watched Phantom for the first time two weeks ago!! It was the 25th at Royal Albert one. I have a friend who's obsessed, and also I'd been wanting to watch because of this blog ... though I've been kinda skimming the art to avoid spoilers.

    UNTIL NOW.

    I think my fave is the last one (THAT LAST SONG HOLD ME) but I like them all. My other favourite is the 3rd button. I really, really love the adding of just a bit of colour, with some just in grey. Gorgeous.

    I am working on drawing my own header currently .... >.<

    1. YOUR CONFESSION SHOCKS AND SCANDALIZES ME. (Not really, but hey) SQUEE WE JUST SHOWED THAT VERSION TO OUR FRIEND YESTERDAY!!! she hadn't seen it either, so don't 'feel too bad. But really? Dis blog made you want to? *shucks*

      SWEET.

      I can't actually choose a favorite song. I've literally grown up listening to Phantom, so I know every song inside out and backwards, and I love them all. I've sung Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again for voice class (THAT WAS FUN) But yeah, I love all of them. BUT THE PART WHERE CHRISTIN DOES THAT "Angel of Music, who deserved this? WHY do you curse mercy?" SAD. ........... and it occurs to me, rereading your comment that you meant drawing and not song as favorite, and now have silly.

      I LOVE THAT ONE!

      Sweet! I can't wait to see it, because your art is so fun. XD

  14. K HAAAII I'D JUST LIKE TO LET YOU KNOW THAT I SWIPED THAT BLUE GIRL AND BLONDE HAIR WITH FLOWERS FOR MY SIDEBAR MUAHAAAA. which is number 2. I figured that since you drew them for me anyway, you wouldn't mind me grabbing it. XDD But in the case that you actually do mind (who knows? maybe you do care. it's possible i'm wrong), just let me know and I can take it down. I added creds to you so yeah.
