Barnabas - Gaze of Hunger by InsaneKane87 Barnabas - Gaze of Hunger by InsaneKane87
My entry for the Dark Shadows contest

The photo I used reminded me of this quote from the trailer. [link]

:bulletred:[Barnabas stares at a lava lamp]
Barnabas Collins: [drools at the "blood" inside] Aaahhhh...

I made his eyes red for the obvious reason the hunger of blood that he is craving. I felt it would stand out and make an impact. I loved this expression and couldn't resist. I previously started this a few days before I found out about the contest. When I found out, my jaw dropped hitting my table and then I couldn't sit still for a hour or so.

:bulletred:Inspiration I used while working on this, I listened to alot of Danny Elfman music. I listened to the Edward Scissorhands soundtrack the most. Music really helps with concentration but what other way for this piece than to listen to some Elfman music.

:iconmeryheartless: Helped me with the template, if it wasn't for her I wouldn't have been able to submit this to the contest.

:bulletred: Tools used
~ 2H, HB, B, 2B, 4B, Red Pencil for his eyes!
~ Stump, Q-Tip, Finger
Used the stump for the dark areas, used the q-tip for the light areas.

This I really amazing and I love this movie. The only thing I'm not so keen on is the eyes. I think the vibrant red takes away from the rest of the portrait, giving it a less realistic and mature look. You shading is wonderful though. You have some serious art skills my friend. Awesome! :D
