The Show Goes On by CalamityChemist The Show Goes On by CalamityChemist
Prior to his death, Carmori finally landed the leading role in a theatre production—a newly written play which was projected to be a great success. Unfortunately, he drowned just before the début. Each evening until opening night, he watches silently from a theatre box as the cast rehearses the play with his replacement.

I really enjoyed doing this particular illustration. :> Backgrounds are not my forte, so it was a great learning experience to put a bit more detail than usual into one. Hopefully I’ll have the guts to tackle other background-heavy pieces in the future.

I hope that you like it <3

Carmori belongs to me (*CalamityChemist)

Thank you very much! I am glad that you like it. :) Yes, there is a bigger story to him--he is the main character of a novel of mine, and I do a lot of art featuring him. I will be releasing more art with him soon! Thanks again. :>

Have you considered doing emotion charts for your characters such as Carmori and Cecile?

All the applause, dear Lady. All of the applause.
This is nothing but a sheer dark delight for the eyes. If you hadn't gone and say you weren't good at BGs, I never would have guessed. This is perfect on so many levels. The line work, the details of the mouldings and the patterns. Absolutely perfect lighting. It has just the right amount for dark with even a pinch of ominous. Beautiful work! :iconisayplz:

It's a beautiful piece, and I really like all the attention to detail. His expression and posture convey a very distinct emotion-- sort of indescribable unless you see it, but very strong. One thing, though-- wouldn't someone in his position have an understudy to replace him in case of injury or, in this case, death?

Thank you so much for the kind words. <3 I really appreciate them. And yes, you're correct; his replacement is his understudy. c:

I'm not trying to discredit the scene here, but he died right before opening night and so they postponed the show to rehearse it again, correct?
Reply
:iconcalamitychemist:
CalamityChemist Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2011  Student Filmographer
He died three days before opening night, so they ran through the final nights of rehearsal with his understudy. The replacement was well-prepared, so the show was not postponed. c:
