A portrait/character study of George Hearn and Angela Lansbury from the 1982 DVD performance of Sweeney Todd. I wanted to try designing caricature-esque features from existing models. Drawn in my mini hard-bound sketch notebook with india ink pens. 2008.

Wow, that is amazing! Love the detail on this and I love the way you drew Sweeney and Lovett. Very nice to see artwork from the 1982 version, there isnt enough of it on here.

This is so great! I love how you've paid so much attention the background, like the planks on the wall, the ripped wallpaper and the tattered curtain - my own energy always runs out after finishing characters... ;) And besides, the characters look just awesome too! :+fav:

Oh this looks great, I have always loved your work, but you just keep getting better! I watched this version of Sweeney Todd before the movie ever came out, I believe that the Broadway version is MUCH better.

George Hearn's performance is my absolutely favorite Sweeney, as well as how I picture the character would be most like.

So, AWESOME JORB!

Very well done. Lansbury and Hearn are good choices for character study.

I saw a gorgeous adaption of the play at my local college and this scene is certainly one of the best. I think you drew the pie shop, as well as lovett and sweeney wonderfully.

I'm really glad to see you're back :heart: you were a muse then, and continue to be now

The first time I saw a video of Hearn singing Epiphany I was sure that if I ever saw him in dark alley, I would run for my life, screaming and shouting... :fear:I still think the same, and your pic just reminded me of that :XD:
