Todd in the Shadows by PhilWiesner Todd in the Shadows by PhilWiesner
Entirely made off of two images in my mind melding into one being:

Makeover Fairy's Todd in the Shadows (of the Opera) and "Give me everything tonight" as a mugging line.

This started as a sketch of a cyberpunk Todd idea...and it was loosely that, then I decided I liked it too much to leave it as simply a sketch and finish it. ^^;

I suppose I can say this is the Wasteland project take on Todd in the Shadows...but that would mean he'd be using an abandoned opera house as his base of operations and his outfit would be hiding a bunch of cybernetic implants.

...which isn't such a strange thing when compared to the fact a friend of mine introduced me to a book called Eternal Pleasures...which is about the spirits of dinosaurs in people fighting cosmic entities/aliens...so I might just include this as part of the Wasteland project take on the reviewers and save myself the effort of topping the idea of Todd as a Grim Reaper/Phantom of the Opera (and apparently Assassin's Creed) lovechild. I say that with utmost respect and the mandatory salute that he is a bad ass for doing his job.

Also need to note that the musical symbols in for letters was inspired by ~TheButterfly.

So this has a primary focus on TGWTG, it's not limited to TGWTG only.

Here's the collection so far (excluding this piece):

Oh this is excellent the only ONLY critique I have is that the Base Clef is actually a stylized letter "f" MASSIVE props on the "s" though! /no one cares about your music nerdery Kayla.

Oh, I know, but it covered two letters, so I figured I'd try to cover that. :P

That's really really really cool. And using segno for S was a way better idea than the treble clef. Dang! Good job XD

My friends kept telling me this, despite the fact none of my references had that...funny how Kessler's hood from InFamous, Vincent Valentine's Cape, and a Gothic Opera flair like Raphael's from Soul Calibur all equal Ezio when the concepts are thrown together, huh? Lol.
