Tim Burton's Sweeney Todd by Leopreston Tim Burton's Sweeney Todd by Leopreston
I said to myself that I wouldn’t sketch these characters… but eventually gave in and did so anyway. They are… addictive… and I absolutely adore their designs/costumes (and their hair! Woo! Messy, messy!) :D

So, melancholy man, Mr T, and his ‘friend’ (love the design of the razors too… ‘avenging angels’, nice), Mrs Lovett (Helena Bonham Carter… makes me want to shout pantaloonies!) and two blobs that could barely pass for foppish Pirelli and pervy Judge Turpin. Oooh yeah, and, ha ha, “anything you say… so long as it’s not stripes”. =p

Agh agh agh agh agh~~ <3333 These are so awesomeee~~~! Argh I love how you draw Johnny-Sweeney~~ :B His face omg. He's stylized, but he's still got those cute cheekbones and wrinkly brow~~ Lovett looks really good too.. 8D And omg, the By-the-Sea Sweeney.. xDDD That's the best man~~ I thought I was going to die of mirth when I saw that in the movie~~

LOL, I forgot to mention how much I love the hair~~ @3@ I wasn't overly fond of how stringy Johnny's looked in the movie, as I liked to think of Sweeney Todd as a bit better groomed (though I found out that's pretty antithetical to String of Pearls xDD), but you really make the messy 'do look sexy~~ <33

I instantly recognized Turpin and Pirelli, by the way. Don't put yourself down! :lol:
