In the Lap of the Gods - 20 Years Since by kdotmdot In the Lap of the Gods - 20 Years Since by kdotmdot
Here it is... My 2011 tribute to Freddie Mercury on the 20th anniversary of his passing.

I hadn't drawn him in like two years. I didn't even know what to do until yesterday - all I knew was that I wanted it to be completely Freddie. Originally I was going to do a drawn animation, but I couldn't pull that off in 2-3 days (wouldn't have had the patience anyway)! I also wanted there to be SOME kind of color in it because all my recent stuff has been black and white.

So I came up with this - kind of a compromise :P But I'm really happy with it. And it gave a few Queen albums a chance to grow on me (even more). I'll be uploading the static images later.

Also: greatest poll results ever!

To my hero. Thanks for everything, Freddie. We love you.
