-dark shadows: the old and the new- by runty -dark shadows: the old and the new- by runty
3rd and final pic of Barnabas!



That background took me literally a DAY, I swear!

Labor of love, labor of love. :heart:


I wanted all sorts of old relics, the beautiful Victorian styling of window-ing and lighting (perfect for Barnabas' manor! :heart:), as well as... something you'll only find in 1972. :giggle:





I had SO MUCH FUN in this contest!
Whether I win or lose, I know I'll feel I gained a lot anyway: learned so much about drawing realistic, detail work, and pushing myself to see how far I can go, and all the rewards of improvement.

And of course, getting to work with such a beautiful subject (Johnnyyyy :heart:)...

I've already won, if you ask me.



:heart: Best of luck to everyone else entering!




Barnabas Collins, Dark Shadows (c) Tim Burton
