Kamelot Doodle: Creative Platypus

Working with chalk pastels on black paper again today. There's some editing on the color balance in an attempt to get the scan to match the original drawing (just a little fiddling with the midtones). This is a scene inspired by the song Sacrimony from Kamelot's Silverthorne album. As a fan of Victorian Gothic, I appreciated the Fall of the House of Usher meets Phantom of the Opera quality of the story. Here we have the Good Brother receive a vision of his dead sister as The Angel of Afterlife descended from Heaven to judge his case. I wish I had enough skill to do this dark theophany credit -but oh well...
