Les Miserables by scarletwilight Les Miserables by scarletwilight
OMG So today I went to see Les Miserables (movie) in theatres a week after the release (it was released on Christmas) and it was soooo good. The first part was sort of awkward to watch with my dad but after that it was superb. I really wish I had read the book before watching it though. No time because of school unfortunately. And it's a big book (I have it at home, just haven't read it). The music was sort of hard to understand at times because of the background noise or because multiple characters were singing at the same time and usually one would outdo the others lol. But still! IT WAS AWESOME. I highly recommend!!!! So anyways, I drew this in about 3 hours. It features Cosette (played by Amanda Seyfried) and Marius (played by Eddie Redmayne, who--might I add--is quite cute and has a very nice voice). The original image was in a magazine for Vogue..??? Actually I don't know. I just googled 'Les Miserables' and found this pretty picture ahaha. I'm quite proud of it, especially after having not drawn in about 3 months (well actually I painted the official art for Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Times for my brother's Christmas gift on canvas, but it's obviously much too big to scan lollll). My friend told me the movie was good and that she was planning to watch it twice in theatres. I didn't believe it could be THAT good considering how America hasn't produced many good movies in the last few years (no offense, but I really am not a super-hero fan; plus, it's just a fad because there have been plenty of movies before that were released and just weren't popular enough). But now even I want to go watch it again in theatres. More money for them! They deserve it! ESPECIALLY Hugh Jackman who plays the main character Jean Valjean :D. His singing was great throughout the wholeeee movie (most other characters were only present for a portion of the movie or didn't have many singing/speaking parts). Russell Crowe (plays Javert) was also nice. Heck, EVERYONE IS GREAT. The last song was beautiful. Man I just loved the movie. I can't wait till I have more time because I'm going to read the book for sure (I also recently bought Angels and Demons, so Les Miserables can go after that haha). OH Oh oh! I forgot, MUST GIVE LOTS AND LOTS OF CREDIT TO CLAUDE-MICHEL SCHONBERG (still alive by the way I think). He produced the original music for Les Miserables. I grew up listening to French music, but I didn't realize (until my dad kindly pointed it out to me today) that Claude-Michel Schonberg was one of the singers I had listened to (without knowing). :D.
Anywaysssss, enjoy the drawing. Misc: just used a mechanical pencil, eraser, and a tortillion
Uhh it's a big file so I'm not sure I'd recommend downloading it, but I'd also like people to (because then I feel loved lol).
Andd I improvised with Marius' hair because it's not shown D;.
Oh and ignore the timestamps on the bottom corner. :D
