Beneath A Moonless Sky by LisaKellerer Beneath A Moonless Sky by LisaKellerer
One week ago I first watched the DVD of Love Never Dies. I am a really big fan of The Phantom of the Opera and before watching Love Never Dies I was a bit skeptical whether the sequel is as good as the original. But my concerns were unfounded, what I saw was a musical masterpiece and I can´t stop listening to this music. Ben Lewis played the Phantom and Anna O´Byrne Christine Daaé.

This drawing took me about 30 hours

Bristol paper (250mg/m²) 19,5x29 cm
H-6B Faber Castell pencils
eraser in pencil shape
Tombow Mono Zero eraser 2.3
usual eraser

This is amazing, it looks even better than the actual color photo! I know a lot of people don't like Love Never Dies and there are a lot of problems with it, but in the end I do really enjoy the musical. do you have a favorite song from it?

I actually really like the most songs but my favourites are Once upon another time and Beauty underneath. Since a few weeks I hear LND nearly all the time and by far more often than POTO :). What are your favourite songs?

That really is beautiful... I understand you were skeptical about Love Never Dies, since sequels often don't 'live up to the expectations' - the downside of setting the bar high, ALW. The acting may not have been that good (yes Erik, you), but the singing was breathtaking. Ben Lewis has this deep and menacing voice which suits his character perfectly! Anyhow, your drawing is amazing. Such detail, I mean look at his sleeve and her dress! My favourite part is Christine's hair. 
One question though, when drawing this, where did you start? The contours of the face? Sketching everything before picking up the H-6B? The eyes, the clothes? I usually start with the eyes (the centre) and gradually work my way to the rest of the face.

thank you for your kind words :) Firstly I began to make a grid (2x2cm) at the reference photo and on my paper. Then I tried to transfer the reference photo so exact and detailed as possible to the paper (Of course just the lines, no shading at this stadium). After erasing the grid I started with Christines face, foremost with her eyes. In nearly all my drawings I start with the women (I knew 90 percent of my drawings are women xD) because drawing women makes me much for fun then men. The same in this drawing here: I started with Christine, after finishing her, I drew the Phantom and finally I drew the background (Oh, how I hate drawing the background... :D )

Could you tell me how you draw textures?

I drawed them with layers of pencil areas. I started with light grey and then darker and darker so you have a better controll about the shading. The right shading is very important if you want to draw silk for example. Sometimes If you have to draw a rougher structure you can make little strokes with an very thin eraser.
