A Little Priest by Moundfreek A Little Priest by Moundfreek
It's Priest. Have a little Priest.

The first Sweeney Todd fanart ever (on my part, haha).

I've been a fan of musical theater for several years now, but only started familiarizing with Sweeney Todd in the last few months (because I heard that it was to be adapted into film).

So, I've based the characters from the Tim Burton adaption of the show. I used Victor's and Emily's (from Corpse Bride) body formats for obvious reasons.

It took some number of hours that I do not know. I did not outline the background because I wanted the characters to stand out the most.

The picture is really grainey. It was either going to be grainey or blurry given my scanner's behavior today. I chose clarity, even though it's overpowering.

If Sweeney were animated, it'd look just like this.

Great job. C:

I am a HUGE fan of Sweeney Todd as well.

You have done an absolutely amazing job with this piece! I really struggle with backgrounds, so I really have to give you props there.

The style you used for the characters was so clever as well. You applied it really well, I can sense their personalities in the image! I have to say my favorite part is the shading and the use of colourization.

Well done indeed! ^^

Thanx! Though I think that the contrast between the background and characters could have been clearer (the two blend together a tad too much)

thanx for the fave!!

I love musicals. <3

hmm. what type of colored pencils did you use?
you should darken the background a bit to improve the contrast between Sweeney and Ms. Lovett. it also helps them to stand out more because they kind of blurr into the background.

Prismacolor pencils

I agree that they blur into the background. I was trying to give them a stronger contrast than the background, but it didn't turn out quite how I wanted.

Thanks for the advise! I'll keep it in mind

My friend on youtube was going to make Sweeney Todd with Victor as the titled character, but he had other things going on, so he sadly cancled it.

Like we all were saying earlier, this piece is absolutely wonderful! There is a lot of attention to detail (not only in the characters but also in the background elements as well). You really recreated the characters well on paper with their facial expressions and body language. Great job!
