Ya know, I learned some things from this contest - I started out slow - lol.... I got into it at the end and I think my image with Tim Burton on the ground and Barnabas holding the witch is one of my best pieces ever... If I could do it all over again, I would of stuck to the original idea of taking a famouse shot by the original and posed Depp like it.... as big of an actor as Depp is, I kept coming across poor photos to work from - .... I think in your case, you might take the pictures where you are working on this and make a collage and upload it next to this - This looks impressive... the other thing change his expression, show his teeth.... So many times I didn't bother opening the thumbs cause I thought they we're photos - probably why you didn't get picked, ya know - great looking picture, I haven't touched my airbrush since I got into cg art.... except once - I painted a 20ft x 8 foot mural in a liqour store of a vinyard = about 3 years ago.
very nice... great taste by the way I used this original photo as my inspiration as well.
