Dark Shadows Entry by CarolineHaysArt Dark Shadows Entry by CarolineHaysArt
Oh my goodness this took FOREVAH!

This is my entry for the Dark Shadows contest.

I wanted to do something unique compared to the other entries that I saw so I took a "vampire-y" take on this portrait (That is why he is upside-down).

I also looked at all the trailers I could to get a sense of the Barnabas character that Johnny Depp did. One of the most common facial expressions, I noticed, was the confused arched eyebrow look. I drew Barnabas in that way to harness his essence in a way :)

This portrait was done completely in soft pastel, and then the border was a photoshop add-on.

The money I would receive for winning would go to my college education. Since I want to go to an art school, it would be amazing to win.

Just the thought that Tim Burton might see a picture by me is simply MIND BLOWING!

Hope y'all enjoy! :D
