IF ...swell

With a singing voice that could range over 4 octaves, Freddie Mercury had no problem swelling from bass to tenor in a single phrase... --and often challenged his audience to match his bravado. He was as swell as a daffodil, my dear..

  2. This seems to me a bit Freudian, perhaps. That would certainly be consistent with the title of your blog. Nice contribution to IF!

    Fabulous voice! Fabulous illo! I like the circular movement and your color choices. It feel circus-y, but with a softer flamboyance. I enjoyed your concepts too, especially the second post. The body posture and the mouth study are terrific.

  4. Haha, I see Pop eye nearly made it! I am glad you did Freddy as he's one of my favourites and you did a great job emphasising such a famous mouth where many famous sounds came out of.

  5. Dynamic and flamboyant. The form of the face, especially the mouth are beautifully rendered. I also like the gradient of the background and the way the figure blends into it.
