Songs of -Dead- Angry Men by DarthFar Songs of -Dead- Angry Men by DarthFar
TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY AT YOUR OWN PERIL.

Yes, I am mad. Thank you for asking.

I have a hundred serious art projects planned, an art trade, more Garrity. And what do I do instead? A musical poster illustration of a Les Misérables fanfic that I sorta kinda promised someone somewhere.

[Only, ONLY in the Les Mis fandom can you get as hilarious a crossover as Reanimated Dead Vs. .... what did Tory call it again? Brokeback Insurrection. :rofl:]

Props go to Marguerite for writing A Difference of Understanding, and for the title suggestion. The full list of unused titles, by Marguerite and Pie, are:


- L'aube de l'ABC? (Dawn of the ABC/Abaisse... I mean, can't get any more abased than zombies, can you?)
- Afternoon of the Living Dead: Attack on the Pantheon?
- Songs of Angry Men: Undead Edition?
- Tomorrow Comes (with the subheading, 'The music of a people... who just want brains';)?
- Lost in the Valley of the Night (It's up to Enjolras to make the songs of angry men ring out across France!)?
- One Day Later (No backwards death scenes on barricades, but just as much violin music)?
- Dead Up-Rising (Against the Government)?
- Rebel Without a Pulse? (That one I nicked off of a video game, though)
- Ou la Morte? (Because during the Terror, it was liberte, egalite, fraternite, ou la mort)....
- At the End of All Days
- I Screamed a Scream
- Who Was I?
- Lamarque is Undead
- In My Afterlife

:lmao:

Somewhere, Victor Hugo is turning in his grave.


Brown colour pencil version here: [link]

If you don't know where Jean Prouvaire's hideously anachronistic clothing are from, you probably shouldn't ask. A poet who, in fanon, writes violent poetry with startlingly high body count, and drinks alcohol out of skulls, is probably best observed from afar.

You should read Marguerite's Les Amis story, A Difference of Understanding (for which this is an illustration). It's absolutely priceless! :rofl:

"Grantaire, however, was a problem."

Ahahahaha, upon further reading I find that I like it very much! ... and I'm still right at the very start! :D

Oh gawd, why does Grantaire make me laugh so much?

Not to be annoying, but i just looked at this again and noticed Jehan's carved RUTABEGA!
I think I broke something laughing!

:icondarthfar:
DarthFar Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2009
Yeah, the mention of Jehan's carved rutabaga in the story caused me to break out in a snickerfit too. (If you're a member of Abaisse, you'd probably recognise the source of the insanity as Colonel Despard's Jean Prouvaire Halloween picture). ;)

Oh gawd, I don't know if to laugh hysterically or slowly walk away from you and stare weird at it. :rofl: I mean, this is just too wicked and creepy, especially the jawless one. :fear:

But I like it, it's got a style, a swing! I saw the movie and I liked it a lot. I especially loved the protagonist and Marius. In fact, I'm doing a story (well the sketch of it) about a social activist in Russia who falls in love with a Swiss or Dutch painter. Haven't decided the nationality yet. :D
But yeah, it's inspired by Marius.

I was having the funnest time (and yes, I said "funnest") drawing that picture. :rofl: Well, maybe not so much doing the *research* for it (spending hours at Rotten.com isn't the best thing to do on late weekend nights), but drawing decomposed, reanimated corpses is fun.

I assume that, when you say movie, you're referring to a screen adaptation of Les Mis,and not Les Mis Vol. 6: The Undead Version? ;) (Which version was it?). Looking forward to seeing your sketch/reading your story!

I'm talking about the 1998 version. And oh my, didn't know there were so many!

:icondarthfar:
DarthFar Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2009
Ugh, the 1998 version. :rofl: I think its only redeeming quality, at least among the females, is Marius, who easily wins as "best looking Marius in ALL the screen adaptations". If you want to see the most faithful (and best made) book-to-movie adaptation of Les Mis, I'd recommend the 1934 French black-&-white movie starring Harry Baur as Jean Valjean and Charles Vanel as Inspector Javert. It's notoriously hard to locate in stores, but this person's uploaded the whole movie to their Youtube account in I-don't-know-how-many parts: [link]

Oh, Marius is sexy, they're right about that :nod:. Besides, some chicks really dig that "revolutionary riot" stuff. *shrugs*

Thank you so much for the link, I will definitely see it! My professor recommended me "Tous le matin du monde". He says it's great but I haven't seen it. Look for it and see if you have some luck. I'll do the same. :)

Ah, yes, I remember when they debut on Broadway. Samuel L. Jackson in the role of Jean Valjean was a role he was born to play (m*otherf*cker), and reviving Beethoven for the symphony orchestra was an unconventional, but brilliantly chilly performance.

"Because a revolution just isn't the same without Dead People in it."

Oh, does this mean Milla Jovovich will be playing the part of Eponine? And Val-jean needs a Crowbar. Can't fight Zombies without a crowbar. -nodnod-
