love this Phantom face! so much expression in his face with that early holly wood make up. good rendering, nice use of lights and darks.

Thanks, man! I wound up drawing half of this pic upside down; I felt I was able to get a better feel for the relationships of the shapes that way. Some of Chaney's other make-ups are also pretty amazing, considering the time that he was doing them. They still hold up today.

Thanks, Jason! Yes, this was from photo reference! I don't have a photographic memory, unfortunately.
