I'm Going Slightly Mad by nabey I'm Going Slightly Mad by nabey
Drawing made for the 16th anniversary of Freddie Mercury's death. So, this is for you Freddie.

It's based on a picture of Queen's video "I'm going slightly mad". He's just awesome in it! go check it out if you haven't [link]
I didn't pay much attention to the refernce though, I just drew and had fun (much fun).

I'm entering it to =Cataclysm-X's music contest [link]
I named it after that amazing song, because this song really inspired me to draw Freddie again. It is unique and original (just as Queen and Freddie were), and the video matches the song perfectly, it's in fact one of my very fave videos and it shows what a great artist Freddie was. Here you are the lyrics (just amazing)

TITLE: I'm Going Slightly Mad
BAND: Queen

"When the outside temperature rises
And the meaning is oh so clear
One thousand and one yellow daffodils
Begin to dance in front of you - oh dear
Are they trying to tell you something
Youre missing that one final screw
Youre simply not in the pink my dear
To be honest you havent got a clue

Im going slightly mad
Im going slightly mad
It finally happened - happened
It finally happened - ooh oh
It finally happened
Im slightly mad
Oh dear

Im one card short of a full deck
Im not quite the shilling
One wave short of a shipwreck
Im not my usual top billing
Im coming down with a fever
Im really out to sea
This kettle is boiling over
I think Im a banana tree
Oh dear

Im going slightly mad
Im going slightly mad
It finally happened - happened
It finally happened - uh huh
It finally happened
Im slightly mad
Oh dear

Ooh ooh ah ah
Ooh ooh ah ah
Im knitting with only one needle
Unravelling fast its true
Im driving only three wheels these days
But my dear how about you

Im going slightly mad
Im going slightly mad
It finally happened
It finally happened - oh yes
It finally happened
Im slightly mad
Just very slightly mad

And there you have it"


Well, thank's for looking! :aww:

Spanish

Dibujo con motivo del 16 aniversario de la muerte de Freddie Mercury. Así; que esto es para ti Freddie.

Esta basado en una foto del video de Queen "I'm going slightly mad" (en español sería algo así como "me estoy volviendo un poco loco". Es genial! lo podeis ver aqui si no lo habeis visto [link]
Aunque no he prestado mucha atencion a la foto, simplemente dibujaba para disfrutar.

Es mi segundo dibujo con el que participo en el concurso de =Cataclysm-X sobre música [link]
El dibujo se llama como una canción (ya que esa era una de las reglas). La canción es increible y me inspiró a dibujar a Freddie otra vez. Es única y original (como Queen y Freddie), y el video encaja a la perfección, de hecho es uno de mis videos favoritos y muestra que gran artista era Mercury. Las letras las podeis ver en la versión inglesa de esta descripción.

Gracias por la atencion! :aww:
