From The Mind Of Tim Burton by timshinn73 From The Mind Of Tim Burton by timshinn73
Here's my entry for the contest.

I did a quick pencil sketch to establish the composition and the likenesses. The sketches were scanned and the painting was done using Photoshop CS5 and a Wacom tablet.

Took about 6 hours from start to finish.

Had a lot of fun working on this. I have a strange connection to Dark Shadows. My first professional job as an artist was at a NYC art studio. One of the artists there was Ken Bald. He was the artist who did all the Dark Shadows newspaper comic strips. I learned a lot from him as an artist and a person. He's a perfect gentleman and a real pro. I look back on those days fondly.

Anyway, hope you enjoy my effort. I'm digging a lot of the other entries and wish you all good luck.

Thanks for taking a look!

Holy.....
there are no words. This is just plain awesome. I can't believe this wasn't in the top 10; it's easily one of the best ones I've seen. For some reason this art reminds me of MAD.

I did not follow the rules. My signature is on the piece and I included someone other that Mr Depp in the piece. It's my fault for not following the rules properly. I'm glad you liked my work. Thanks!

I've been disappointed with the outcome of the Barnabas contest.... I figured there were 50 good pieces out of the thousands.... None of these I would of picked. I'm disappointed my Art "They Tried To Stoning Me My Dear, It Did Not Work" didn't make the top ten, but I'm really surprised your's did not make it.... I thought for sure Burton would of chosen yours as one of the three.... and I could see him making money off your image, I just don't understand why they chose this art and not the art that truely deserved it.... I've been venting - lol.... I thought it would be nice of me to tell you I had you picked as one of the 3 Burton would of chose - excellent art man.

I've been connected with deviantart for years, but rarely come here til the Barnabas Contest.... I'm glad it caught my attention, this place is rock'n on this contest - and now that I figured out how to fave a picture, I had to come back and fave this - my favorite in the contest.... the use of funny/thriller is always a great combination and it fits the Tim Burton world perfectly
