Beneath the Opera House by MaGLIL Beneath the Opera House by MaGLIL
This is what happens when you combine Leroux Erik, ALW (2004 movie) Christine, and Tim Burton style-ishness (I guess)
See Erik? He just a little twig.
So, I've kinda been obsessed with Poto for the past few months. Read the book...Its so insane I loved it. And then I saw the Corpse Bride preview...and the story kinda reminded me of poto. So, I thought it would be so cool if Tim Burton made a clay animation film of poto...that would be sooo awsome.
This has kinda been an experiment with the rocks and water (I need to learn how to properly draw water) They were very fun to draw, though, so now I think I'm gunna draw more.
Christine looks different than I expected her to...She looks kinda sickly. ah well.
Sorry if the perspective is wrong. I'm really bad at that. Someone help me.
I used a book cover for reference (kinda).
Anyways:
used Painter and PSP 8
if ya was wonder'n

And thankies to :icondarkelm0: for helping me improve/edit it... Even though I didn't follow her advice too well...>.>

The style you drew this in is exactly like Tim Burton's stop animation style! Wonderful job and I absolutely love Tim Burton! I also love the phantom of the opera, great author, great story, wonderful music, etc. The shadows and shading you did are make the piece so lifelike. Great Job!!!!!!!:)

I think it looks great. Very much Tim Burton, water very picteresque, and the perspective is just fine. Good job, and I agree with you, if Tim Burton made a Phantom of the Opera movie, I can't even begin to think how great that would be.

Oh my god, I can't believe I never considered this- Tim Burton SO needs to make a clay animation film for this! Genius, and I really like how the water turned out.

If Tim Burton did a claymation Phantom of the Opera I would literally die from joy... then rise from the grave to see it again and again in theaters! :XD:

I love how real the water looks, as well as the entrance to the cave, from the cracks to the shadows. And Erik's creepy eyes and his stringy hair and his...everything. He's as skinny as that pole he's holding. :D
