the enchanted violin - secret santa for *bdunn1342 by your-obt-servt the enchanted violin - secret santa for *bdunn1342 by your-obt-servt
“Music is well said to be the speech of angels; in fact, nothing among the utterances allowed to man is felt to be so divine. It brings us near to the infinite.”
- Thomas Carlyle



Secret Santa gift for :iconbdunn1342:, coordinated by :iconphantomfans:.
I rarely draw Leroux Erik, so I hope I did him justice...

:holly: Happy Holidays! :holly:

Doing something different for a change is a bit nerve-wracking,
but also helpful in terms of refreshing your perspective.
So this was a great project for me.
Thanks for the vote of confidence. :hug:

Everything about this is great! The clothing, the Lerouxian mask, the pose and action, the setting, the weather and the music quote :D

I love collecting quotes in general, but especially ones that remind me of a certain opera ghost.

I'm tickled that you noticed the fingers.
One of the distinct features of Leroux Erik that stands out in my mind,
so I did spend some time on those.
Thank you so much for your comment!

I'm so used to drawing Erik my way (for better or worse),
so this was a great project, trying to break out of that mold for a change.
I'm glad you liked it.

Happy holidays. :wave:

Thank you for your kind words.
The graveyard scene is one of my favorite in the book, even though it is somewhat short in description.
So, when I got Leroux Erik request for the secret Santa project, this was the first image that came to my mind.
Thanks also for adding my pics to your group - I am tickled.

Happy holidays. :wave:

This was a fun project, since I don't draw Leroux Erik that often.
That also made it a bit nerve wracking, too, but it turned out well, I think.

Happy holidays. :wave:
