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!

He's a very talented musician. People criticize him for not being like Alan Menken, but I like his style. He can write powerful songs as well as soothing ballads.

The best part is the Godspell stained glass windows. The Steven Schwartz Album is one of my all-time favorite cds, so this is incredibly awesome.

stunning work ;__;
I especially love Giselle laying on the piano, enlighted by Notre Dame's stained glasses lights (as well as the face of the Master :) )
