Mixed Media: pencil, ink, watercolor, gouache. Full view, please.

I am a HUGE fan of Tim Burton, so as soon as I heard about this contest I got to work right away! I've been a fan my whole life, going back to the first grade when I dressed up as Catwoman for Halloween. I dragged my Mom to the theater to see The Nightmare Before Christmas half a dozen times when it first came out and I have seen every film he has ever made and anticipate each new release eagerly. I even traveled to New York just to see his show at the MoMA! He is my favorite director, artist and kiddie book author. To be judged by him would be a dream.

I am very influenced by his work, so if you are also a fan, be sure to check out my other entries and my gallery.

Thanks for looking, commenting, and favoriting. Best of luck to all other contestants! :pumpkin:

So Gothically good! I love the detail work of the background. You've captured an expression of emotion that is quite indescribable, yet it is appropriate to the character. I see something of Peter Lorre in the eyes--another great film actor Mr. Burton enjoyed.The watercolor allows shadows to form in the cloak which is quite impressive. This is just wonderful!

Thanks very much for your thoughtful comment. Any likeness to Peter Lorre was completely unintentional, haha, but I can see where you would think that. Oddly enough, I have a piece of Peter Lorre/Vincent Price fanart here [link] Perhaps I am influenced by my own past work?
Anyway, thanks again. I am glad you like it!
