Here's me to explain my little vision of fucking wonderful Erik the fucking Phantom. The straggly dread-looking things are his hair.... I draw him as such because I recall a part of the book where his hair is described as strands like rat tails. So THAT'S WHAT HE GOTS! The mask is meant to be black, another aspect from the book. Christine even describes him as look like Othello at one part!!!!!1! OK, so my mask design doesn't look quite african, but hey, it's more accurate than ALW's so FUCK YOU BUDDY!
