The fluidity of this piece is stunning. Having all of his greatest works in one piece without the piece seeming over crowded is marvelous. I adore how the light from the windows of the Hunchback of Notre Dame is framing half of the piece in almost a light curve. It really adds more to this piece as a whole, but it also does not leave the piece feeling lopsided because the light of the moon fills the other half, having complete balance. I really love his facial expression, it looks thoughtful and genuine and this piece is just a gorgeous piece as it is. This is a beautiful tribute to a man with great vision and talent. I believe that Stephen Schwartz would be moved by this tribute.

I see wicked, Harrison Ford and Disney and I very very much approve.
This is beautiful, and I can't help but look at it and get a sense of uplift and music (which I imagine is your aim)

You did not draw Stephen's face! did you? I kind of want you to say no, because then I would not have to praise you as an almighty god, but I also want you to say yes, because, then I will praise you as the most magnificent person of all time!
