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

oh yes, I know the TV show was a more "seroius" than this movie will be, but I still like the angle they're trying. I never got to see the original show, but from what I hear, both of my parents and all my aunts and uncles would race home after school just to watch it.

This turned out amazing! I love Tim Burton, Johnny Depp, and also Helena Bonham Carter. They're my favorites. It would be kind of interesting totally freaking awesome knowing Tim Burton saw your artwork. :giggle: I really can't wait for this movie to come out. Good luck! I sincerely hope you win. :D

I hope so too! You deserve it! And me too. That and Brave are the only movies I can think of that are coming out that I'm eager to see. I'm half tempted to check out Hunger Games cause everyone likes it and recommends it, but it comes off as another Twilight fad to me. At least people aren't acting brainwashed...yet. My boyfriend said it's better than Harry Potter and that makes me not want to see it. :giggle:

LOL, yes, I haven't read it yet, but I can't imagine anything could beat Harry Potter.....

Exactly. It might be good but there's no way it's better than Harry Potter. I actually don't think the trailers look interesting, with the exception of Josh Hutcherson. :giggle:
