tim burton by Ferntree tim burton by Ferntree
This is for *solle's contest at [link]

I didn't mean for Tim's legs to join to the border at the bottom (that's Solle's thing). But it went a little bummy so I had to :dohtwo: . I'm quite proud of my idea to get the pinstripes on his jacket (I attacked it with a pin- shhh!) But this was something very different for me and I'm not very good at trying new things, so I'm proud of this.

I'm surprised I got this finished what with the piles of homework constantly falling on my head.

Is that really what he looks like? I'd read that Edward was based primarily on Burton himself, but I never imagined anything like this. I wonder if he's ever made a cameo in any of his films...

that sucks, it looks nothing like him, but don't let my opinion get to you because it means nothing, but it's so anime!

Very well done.
It reminds me of Jack Skellington the way you gave him pinstripes and made him all lanky and thin.
Love it!

Thankyou! :D

kaian Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2004
Oooooh wow!!! I love the swirliness and the darkness and the paper-cutting-outness!!! *peers closely at border* Ohhh, that looks SO cool!! :eyepopping: And I love how the coloring contrasts between sharp (i.e. his hair and the border) to soft (i.e. the paper). It's just gorgeous all-around! Good luck with the contest; I'm rootin' for you!!! :w00t:

Very nice! I love the detail and around the edges. His face is drawn very nicely and I love his pose. The cut out of the paper and him holding the scissors add up to the picture so greatly! I love this drawing!
crunchychibi Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2004
Very, very cool. I love how his hair swirls into little Nightmarish hills.

This thing has way too much ownage going for it. Tech-wise, I'm going orgasmic over the texture of the clothes-- the stripes of it, the folds, the shading. The detail of niftiness, references, is insane-- the Timmish cutouts, lil hearts and spirals and crowns, the scissors, the camera, the Skellington-ness of his outfit. The hair, wild, spirals. Gorgeous. I'm drooling over the hands-- dynamic, powerful. His expression is perfect. On a personal, subjective level, I'm completely madly wildly in love with the purple collar, and of course with the way his legs blend with the border. The shading around the eyes and nose, the way the scissors shine-- the soft grey of the paper, gorgeous neck, nifty letters.

I never expected this much niftiness for my contest. Choosing a winner is going to be sweet, sweet torture. :D

dude it's awesome! I think it doesn't matter that the legs are joined to the's cool lookin!! i think you did an awesome job for this to be a completely different thing for you to do.
rainyd Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2004
Waaa this is so coooooool! I hope you win the contest!!!

Wow. This one's excellent! Great ingenuity, too, using the pin on the paper. Heh...pinstripes. Good one.

It has great gesture, too. The line of action is very dynamic, and works very well in the pose. Also, this piece screams Tim Burton all over it, in both character composition, color choice, and border elements. It's an exquisite drawing, with a lot of character, personality, and creativity. Excellent work. :thumbsup:B-)
