Red Death-Phantom of the Opera by 666eternity Red Death-Phantom of the Opera by 666eternity
So, may i present: My first oil painting!

I'm a great Phantom of the Opera-Musical Fan and the character of the Red Death always fascinated me. When the Phantom first appeared on the big staircase during the masquerade ball at the beginning of the second act of the musical, i was so impressed!! Unfortunatelly there are only few good picutres of this fantastic costume.... Until i found a flyer/leaflet of the London production. "The Phantom of the Opera - The most haunting musical" (or something similar ^^°;) I was soo happy when i saw this advertisment :D And so true!! ^^ Well, the music of ALW has haunted me down for 8 years now :lol:

"Lange Rede kurzer Sinn" -as we Germans say:
I love the Red Death which is why i chose him for my first attempt with oils :D

Hope you like it!

I'd be very happy about some comments! Thank you! :hug:


oh, i forgot:

I am SO glad you did this of the Stage version and not the one from the movie. The one from the movie is so boring, but this mask was breathtaking.

I always loved the costume too. It was so spooky, yet so intriguing. Very nicely done!

Oooh, LOVE this! The Red Death costume Erik wears during the masquerade ball has always been my absolute favorite.

So happy you used the play's costume in this beautifully done piece. :)

This is just Excellent! I am interested in possibly using it for a book cover. Can you email me and let me know what your use policies are?

Thanks,
