I love those eyes. For some reason, this image reminds me of both the Crow and David Bowie ... or maybe I just haven't had enough caffeine yet ;)

Oohh, yeah, I hadn't heard the crow yet as a similarity, but I had on D. Bowie. :)

cut outs from various sources. I collect disused and used books, and publisher returns.

Thanks!
yep, the picture I used as a reference was [link]
but I definitely do like to deviate from my direct references - I think mine looks a wee more masculine.
again, thanks for the words, and for providing good stock!

it is a bit bowie-esque... i can see that. ;)
When I look at it I see a mix between a magician named Dan Sperryman and a character called "Blind Mag" from horror rock opera "REPO: the genetic opera"
btw, REPO is awesome if you havn't seen it. blood, gore, guts and singing.

Yeah, I can totally see REPO influence there. I haven't seen much of it - started watching and got sidetracked by other stuff- looks neat though :)

Sidetracked? :omg:
lol

... granted, I have to be careful - REPO is one of those major *HIT OR MISS* movies - most people will either absolutely love it or absolutely despise it. especially if one is not a fan of opera.

My roommate demanded I "move my car out of the driveway or they would back me over with the their truck" -- I decided to comply... then I decided since I was in the car I needed Subway. Which took a while... by the time I got back to the house it was over and I was quite sad.

The genre of Opera/musicals in general is hit or miss. Though I'll always remember my first one which was PDQBach's The Abduction of Figaro XD
