Meh, I started sketching something completely different and it slowly turned into this. In such a situation, you can either love or hate the result. I love the result.
I notice that Ive been lacking in detail with these characters of late, so heres something with a little more to it. Also, Mrs Lovetts design needed some development. Im still not so sure if I like what I see, so I might have to experiment a bit later.
Tobias looking sad, Mrs Lovett looking happy and Sweeney Todd looking

suggested that I enter this piece into a competition (that is still accepting entries for the next few days
theres your hint to enter chaps!), the Famous Anthros Contest. I must say that it sounds intriguing, so I thought why not? It looks like fun!
For the sake of the judges, these anthropomorphic characterizations are based on the descriptions of the historical Sweeney Todd ( and more pointedly the figure that features in the early Penny Dreadful titled The String of Pearls A Romance' ). It has been hotly argued over the years that Sweeney Todd may have been a very real figure, hence my entering this into the competition.
