Salieri by tavington Salieri by tavington
“All the same, if it wouldn't be imposing, I would like you to see my new piece. It would be a tremendous honour for me.”

F. Murray Abraham from the movie "Amadeus"
If you haven't seen this film yet, I suggest you do so now!

Tom Hulce's laugh is highly contageous :D

This is F. Murray's character, Antonio Salieri, talking to Mozart about a new Opera he is writing.
Slimy git, but hey :D

I wanted to find some great pics of Salieri online, but couldn't, so ended up getting a few caps from my DVD.

I couldn't help but see a bit of Jason Isaacs's Lucius Malfoy in him.
And his cheeks were particularly interesting to shade and colour. I think he may have had a skin condition when he was younger, but I could be wrong.
I could bang on and on about this film and this character, but I'll let you discover it for yourself if you haven't already.

Listening to some music whilst colouring this, lyrics I heard seemed quite fitting for Salieri's character:

"Father into your hands, I commend my spirit
Father into your hands
Why have you forsaken me?

In your eyes forsaken me
In your thoughts forsaken me
In your heart forsaken me, oh

Trust in my self righteous suicide
I cry when angels deserve to die
In my self righteous suicide
I cry when angels deserve to die"

Next will be Hulce's character, Mozart himself
