Phantom Number 90
This is a mile stone post! Number 90! Back when I started this blog I had no idea if I would keep my enthusiasm for it, but it has been lots of fun and I have been able to meet a lot of great artists because of it. This is a digital painting I did in Photoshop, I wanted to take a shot at doing a catoon style Phantom of the Opera, and I wanted to do it in a "Basil Gogos" style as well, using lots of crazy colors. So here he is. This thing makes me laugh whenever I look at it! not sure if I nailed the Lon Chaney Sr likeness or not, maybe a bit on the Tim Conway side? Either way, I think it turned out great, and I had a great time painting it. I am working on setting up a store here soon, and I have a cool line of original art that will be for sale here soon as well. As always, thanks for stopping by to check out the monsters. I know they enjoy the company!
