Black Nostalgia - Chp 3 - Pg 3 by DragonessDeanna Black Nostalgia - Chp 3 - Pg 3 by DragonessDeanna
Well. Yeah. I'd rather let this speak for itself. But I don't think I can.
I want you all to remember this. My Erik is deformed in the world of Black Nostalgia. He's different. His major deformity lies in his mind. He's not mentally stable. I don't know which version it is, but there was one Erik out there that wasn't deformed at all. But he was completely insane. I think that was the rats in the pants guy. But I dunno. That's not the point. Go easy, you guys. It took me forever to get my Erik the way I wanted him. So now you know what lies under that mask. . . But then again. This was a long time ago. What changes could've happened in over twenty years? ;)

EDIT: 6/1/12
I saw this page again for the first time a few weeks ago. And I hated that third panel. So I redid it.
Also added some drapery to the background. Which I'll be doing to the rest of the pages in this scene. :P

I sure as heck don't see anything wrong with your face, Erik. In fact, those scales around your eye look really cool that way! :)

Dario Agento is the version your referring to -shutter- not a good movie...not a good movie.... but I'm down with the whole more crazy thing. I love that jewel Erik is wearing did you make up the design yourself?

Your version of Erik would have to be my favorite of any version I have seen. You brought such a humanity to him, but also an alluring virility to his character also. :love:

Humanity? Sometimes hard to see in a character that's mixed between a dragon and a wolf. Lol! I'm kidding. I know what you mean.
But really? He's one of your faves? .... EEEEE!!!!! That makes me so happy! Thank you!! *Happy tears*

Your version of Erik, with the rich background you have created so intricately for him, it resonates such a deep soulfulness in him. I seldom see such tragedy balance with the right amount of pathos in a character as you have achieved with Erik.
Also, I confess find anything wolf-like extremely sublime, so a wolf-like version Erik was simply a dream long waiting to come true!

He is my ultimate favorite, even more than Kay's at time! I LOVE HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:iconfangirlingplz:

Really? :blush: Sorry about that, I tend to babble the nonsense that fills my head, esp when I am a devoted fan of something.

Animated?! :faint: :love: That would be another dream come true! Words fail me right now at the thought of it being animated, it would be spectacular!

Oh yeah! One Phantom of the Opera idea was that he was traumatized by a war or something, and he thinks his face is deformed but it's not and he's just unstable in every way. And personally the scales aren't a weak (if that's the right choice of words) deformity at all. Remember it's in the 1800s not much could be explained back then. Poor Eriks deformity was probably best explained by a demon touching him on the face before birth or something evil like that. Good job by the way

I was very worried when I came up with the idea for Erik's deformity. I didn't know how everyone would react to it. But then I remembered that Erik's been deformed in many different ways before. But people seems to like it all so far. And I'm glad you do, too. Thank you for the wonderful comments!

I think it's unique giving him scales. Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical changed Erik's deformity to make it easier for the actors to sing. I found out what Lon Chaney did to look creepy, and I don't think he could talk what so ever(good thing he didn't have to :D) But to give your Erik scales and say he's a demon (and give him wings to boot) is neat.

Aw, no problem! At first I was wondering about the scales, just because it's so different from other Phantom deformities, but I kept reading and started liking the whole idea ^^

Glad to hear that. =) Makes me wonder, though, if I do make it as an animator and get this whole thing animated, how's the public gonna react? Since people are edgy when it comes to retellings of classic stories. Y'know?

The-Nightmare-Doctor Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2009  Student General Artist
yeah.... well, some people will like it, nay, love it, and some people may just hate your guts for it. Not everyone will like it cuz' no ones the same. Also, you're gonna try and animate it? That'll be cool! Are you going to get voice actors? I'm trying to start animating as soon as possible, but I don't have Photoshop or anything like that.... well I have a trail version, but it seems to jam up my computer (you should have seen it, it was REEEEEALLY bad last time I tried to work on it, so I just gave up) so I'm just going to start like Walt Disney did, with just paper.

Oh yes. If I do it the way I want, it'll be a full-length animated feature. But not like Disney, since this is all too violent for Disney. :P
Anyway. As for voice actors, definately. But Erik's voice is going to be the hardest to cast. x.x; Every time I think of the right actor, I then think, no. That's just bad. *Sighs*
Oh well. It'll all come together, I'm sure.
