Get With the Decade, Barnabas by Terrauh Get With the Decade, Barnabas by Terrauh
All I needed to hear was "Tim Burton" and "judging contest".....but then having to draw Johnny Depp as the character just made me pick up my paints and pencils and go to it.

I really can't wait for this film to come out. As Tim Burton is my favorite director and Johnny Depp my favorite actor, most things that they make together grab my attention.

And Mr. Burton, even if you don't pick my work to be in the finalists, just know that I tried really hard to make this painting special and you'll still be my favorite director of all time :) :heart:

Acrylics and color pencil with some water color pencil on 16 x 20 inch canvas.

Aha, so you're the thief who stole my grandma's macrame plant holder! Where to start... I love the rainbow effect of his shades reflecting the lighting or ceiling above him. Nice serpentine detailing on the fireplace mantle. The Lava Lamp casts iridescent shadows on the mantle surround; excellent detail. The texture of his coat (crushed velvet?) is either bark-like or reptilian; either way, its uniqueness makes me want to touch it. Best of all: the contrast between the 18th century dandy and his groovy "descendant" is in keeping with the legacy as Barnabas elicits both hauteur and hawt-ness.

Im digging the hanging plant holder and lava lamp, those are great little touches of the era. Barns looks amazing, you did a great job matching up his looks with that of 70s attire. The ascot is perfect
