The World Will Burn: Dr. H by stereowaste The World Will Burn: Dr. H by stereowaste
I didn't expect to paint this. But I did. It was fun. Nothing great, but I don't submit much on here so eh.

I had all these plans for like a mushroom cloud, but they are too hard to draw - so I simply did Penny with smoke from fires. I am clever, yes.

Use the final scene as a reference.

Dr. Horrible kind of kills my brain. 8}

Arise and see
So your world’s benign
So you think justice has a voice and we all have a choice
Well now your world is mine


- Dr Horrible

It's wonderful, his expression is perfect. He looks at once indifferent to the burning fires a sort of nonchalant callousness, and at the same time there is a sorrowful deadness there.

Oh, very nice! I love the coloring all-around (gorgeous job on that), but I gotta say: the labcoat. I love how you made it fade from white to red (nice touch there). Love the Penny in the sky, too.

Must say, I'm in total agreeance with ~klibese. Awesome work here, hun.

I think putting the image of Penny in the sky behind him adds a nice subtext. He became the villain he always wanted to be, joined the Evil League of Evil, bested Captain Hammer... but the girl he loved died in the process. It makes for a hollow victory.

Her likeness in the clouds and the expression on Dr. Horrible's face evoke the feeling that he's just going through the motions since she's gone.

not only does he look amazing and very well painted, shadows and the like but the background is brilliant and does that fady-see-two-pictures thing and concept is great too and even if i didnt have a slight supervillian problem id probably still like it cos its brilliant!

It's about time there was some great Dr. Horrible Fan-art out there. The other stuff just.. it's either talent without emotion or emotion without talent. This is both. It's distinct.

As soon as I saw this, it was an instant recognition. I loved Dr. Horrible for as long as it lasted online and beyond, I still remember it dearly.
Your drawing portrais his emotions at the end of the series greatly, and anyone can tell how much work you put into Penny's cloud face. I truly love it!
