Barnabas by AbigailLarson Barnabas by AbigailLarson
I love the old "Dark Shadows" show - how could I not enter this contest? I'm so excited to see the movie! I know Johnny Depp will do Barnabas justice.

This piece was made with pencil, watercolor, and digital media.

Thank you! I have made sketches of many of the characters, but I haven't finished any. I'm just too busy! But they are fun to draw :)

Your welcome. I know what you mean, between work and play its time consuming just to find the time to scan and upload :P
By far, Jack skeleton is the most fun the sketch :la: I :heart: the pumpkin King :XD:

Okay, so, I have to ask it....


How the hell did this not make it into the semi-finalists? This is PERFECT for Tim Burton's contest. GAH!!!


Such a disservice to Tim Burton that the judges didn't pick anything even remotely channeling his style. :(

:iconabigaillarson:
AbigailLarson Featured By Owner May 8, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Aww, thank you dear! I was rather surprised by some of the choices, because there were so many wonderful Tim-Burtonish entries - but that's the nature of the beast :P

I whipped this out too quickly, without going through the rules with a fine-toothed comb.
I screwed myself because I read afterwards that the image had to be 2500 pixels, and this one was 2900. So that was totes my fault for not being more careful!

Thanks for the support, though! I'm sure there will be other opportunities to work with Mr. Burton ^_~

I bet there will be, too, but that's such a shame to be disqualifed for something so trivial :(. Still think you should have made it. Too bad the judges couldn't let you know about the rule and give you time to fix it >_<!

It was a popular TV drama in the '60s and '70s, but I think you can get it on Netflix these days :)
