I Want To Break Free by bullsik I Want To Break Free by bullsik
He was born in September 1946 in Zanzibar. His real name was Farookh Bulsara. In 1973 he and his band Queen released their first album in UK and that's how the story begun. They quickly become one of the most famous bands on this planet.
Freddie died on 24th November 1991. It's been 14 years now and I still remember seeing the news on TV. It makes me feel strange... like when you admire someone and you just can't understand why such great person must leave the world untimely. I have a "Queen evening" today. I'm listening to their music, I've watched some videos. And finally I finished this picture.

"I want to break free" is one of my many favourites songs/videos of Queen and this picture is my tribute to Freddie (who doesn't love that scene in drag? ) Handdrawn lineart (+ some pencil shadowing), colored in Photoshop & Painter with mouse. The style refers to Alphonse Mucha.

Freddie definitely looked funny dressed as a woman, but I guess it made the music video memorable. It's one of my favourite Queen music videos.

What I'd really like to know is what Freddie's Parents thought of this behavior. Lol, I love this performance. You did a great job capturing it.

I've had this song stuck in my head for the last week now -- I think it's become my theme song.

And for the record, I think we can all agree that Roger Taylor is one hot chick.

Awesome job, Bullsik! :D

I just now checked out the video for "I Want To Break Free", thanks to you. At first, I wasn't sure if I knew the song, but I immediately remembered it, once I saw the video. It was funny seeing Freddie and another guy in drag, too. :)

The song was used in an old commercial, but I can't remember what it was.

Ugh, the good ones always die young. DD: I loved Freddie Mercury, even though I was born after he died, I still loved his music.

This was one of my favorites. <33

Really great drawing by the way. :"DD
