Barnabas Collins by jackcrowder Barnabas Collins by jackcrowder
"For most men, time moves slowly, oh so slowly, they don't even realize it. But time has revealed itself to me in a very special way. Time is a rushing, howling wind that rages past me, withering me in a single, relentless blast, and then continues on. I've been sitting here passively, submissive to its rage, watching its work. Listen! Time, howling, withering! "

I realized now that was for the Dark Shadows contest so it's Depp. Seriously I think the style of your character is much better looking than Barnabas in the Burton film. To me Depp looks like a round faced porcelain doll with pouty little lips, I wish another actor had been given the part.
Such a pity the contest didn't allow for Frid's and Cross' likeness.

I like the style of this picture a lot even though I not a fan of the Burton version.

I think the makeup done in Dark Shadows was heavily disappointing. You saw edges. There was no afterthought. It was very disappointing. Almost as much as the For Children nature of the film. Let the Depp fans lynch your opinion because all of these people phoned in their work.

The strangest thing about the make-up was that they didn't adjust it for the day-lit scenes, not even blend the make-up. :spin:

The style of the clothes looks like the Depp version but his long thin face reminds me of Frid and Ben Cross.

Wow! Nicely done. I really like how he looks the Johnny Depp version, but is also reminiscent of Jonathan Frid's version. :D
Good luck with the contest.

I like that you went with a completely different style. I don't see a lot like this, which makes me happy. Who cares if it doesn't look exactly like Depp, the interpretation you have going here is great. I'm loving it!

I really did want to go with something different.

I knew a lot of people were going to go for that direct look. After all, one of the rules says its going to be judged on how close it looks like Depp.

Thank you so much. :)

Nice work... But doesn't look like Johnny Depp... They should take it down like they did three of my pieces I entered for the contest...

...doesn't look like Johnny Depp...

I'm sorry I didn't best represent Depp for you. This is, however, how Depp came out in my style when I drew him.


They should take it down like they did three of my pieces I entered for the contest...

I would suppose my lack of best characterizing Depp will ensure that I won't rank in the top 7. Therefore, I won't win anything.

Would you be kind enough to explain to me what art you did for your entries? Let alone how it can compare to my piece?

Since my piece should be removed similar to yours. I'd like to see the parallels.

I have never been disappointed with Burton's films. There is usually always something that clicks with me. Whether its art design, costume concept or the directing prompting the actors to give their all. It doesn't hurt much of the catalog has Johnny Depp in it. Not to mention Alice Cooper is in the flick. My mother would put on Welcome To My Nightmare's vinyl when I was a kid and play it all day long while my father was at the oil refineries. The song Steven has been permanently burnt into my subconscious.
