-Dark Shadows- by Initial-Dzines -Dark Shadows- by Initial-Dzines
UPDATE: IM A SEMI-FINALIST!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU x10!!! OMGOODNESS I'M LITERALLY JUMPING OUT OF MY SKIN! This is really a dream come true! I honestly didn't think I had a chance with all the amazing entries there were! Everyone did such a great job!! I still can't believe TIM BURTON will see this, even if I don't get chosen as one of the 3, This is still one of the most amazing moments of my life! I am truly TRULY thankful!! My heart is overloaded with joy right now! :') THANK YOU!



Download to see all the details!!! my 3rd & final submission: This took FOREVER!! :la: 27hrs spent on trying to perfect this. I thought I should try a new approach with different techniques I've been learning lately. I wanted it to look as close as possible to what Tim Burton would have as a painting in the movie. I'm pleased to say I'm happy with the outcome. I put my heart into this, I hope you all enjoy it. ;)

Tim Burton has been one of my biggest inspirations since I was a little kid (20+ yrs...man I'm gettin old) To have him judge my work would be a life long dream come true. Good Luck to all who enter!!!

i went to the movies the other day and i it took several minutes to make up my mind between this and Avengers. i chose Avengers. i'll probably buy this once it comes out on blueRay, it looked pretty great.

This is just an awesome work :) The BG ofcourse is wonderful, and I really like how you made the weather, it gives it more emotion. And that plain look on the man is just perfect. Mysterious and sad, yet great and happy because of the flowers and the grass being quite green :D Interesting work :heart:
