Outside of the Norm (My Fastest Painting Yet)

For the Most Part 
I paint
 Comic Art
Comic Book Art
Comic Character Art
Whatever you'd like to call it, but for friends and family 
when I want to do something nice for them, I paint them something they would like.
That's what this piece is...

I'm part of a Professional Cinema Fraternity on Campus
Delta Kappa Alpha
And last weekend was Big/Little Reveal!
As a Big this semester, we gave little gifts to our Littles!
This was just one of them!

I'm a Big Fan of Musicals!
I saw Les Miserables on stage about four years ago,
And then the movie came out.

So when I heard my Little Loves Les Mis,
I knew exactly what to do!

Admittedly, I looked to Pinterest for Ideas 
and I think it came out great!

This is a 8x14 canvas.
Despite being a music buff I did not have any songs from Les Mis in any 
of my old sheet music books, so I printed out "Do you hear the people sing?" 
I only had a few days, so I aged it by crinkling it up into a ball and 
leaving it outside in the sun for a few hours. After flattening the papers, 
I used Mod Podge to glue it to the canvas. It took two sheets to go the length of the painting. 
Once the sheet music was secured, I painted the canvas to look like the French Flag. 
Then I painted a silhouette of that scene when they sang the song, and wrote the words above.
Lastly I Signed It
Before putting a glossy coat of Mod Podge on it 
to protect the painting.

I'm actually really happy with how well this came out.
It's not perfect by any means, but I really like it!
