Barnabas says- Have A Nice Day! by Kapow2003 Barnabas says- Have A Nice Day! by Kapow2003
Whew! Well here's my first entry. I contemplated doing this digitally but I've had so much fun with my Copic markers recently that I decided to just do the entire thing traditionally.

Also, I wanted to modernize him as suggested but didn't want to overdo it with too many elements so I decided that the lone smiley face- a popular icon from the 70's- would be the perfect fit to counteract the moody demeanor of the piece (Plus, it's funny!)

I still might send another entry in with a dash more color but I also really like the contrast between the drab grey tones and the bright yellow of the 70's Smiley Face button.

Hey, nice work with the markers, and a good likeness as well. I think you went with the right decision with that little spot of color, it's a nice emphasis on the difference of his more gothic past and the glaring 70s present.

Wow! The detail on this is AMAZING! I love the hands and the folds of the coat, especially. And the necklace, holy crap. Great job! Really nice. I wish this had placed in the contest. The little smiley face against the gray tones and his serious face is hilarious and seems very Burton-esque. It's a crime he can't have judged this :/

Not a big fan of the smiley face, personally, but I don't hate it. It just looks a little out of place with the rest of the drawing to me. But I think the rest of the drawing is magnificent! I absolutely love it. Definitely top 5 for me.
