Just when I was trying to find a subject to excite my muse, DeviantArt announced this contest.

Oh, I love Johnny Depp... especially as Don Juan DeMarco.

Ignorant people harassed PTE to remove the tube.

if this is not a photo-manipulated photo then wow good job on making it look like one. It looks good, almost like a vector drawing.

The background is a photo-manipulation of a portion of one of the photos in the supplied assets for the contest... the seahorse sculpture. There are several effects and filters applied and the opacity of the layer is reduced to let my hand-painted background colors show through.

The main subject, Barnabas, is my digital painting.

Thank you, Jay, for your comments... and accute observation. I do work with vectors in the process of painting.

Thank you, Marty. I am notorious for "over-working" my paintings until they look more like a photo than a painting. This one I stopped myself from polishing until smooth.

P.S. I am a MAJOR Tim Burton fan!!! Is he judging this? If so, I hope he picks this one!
All Tim Burton movies I could get my hands on are in my DVD collection. :)
Johnny Depp ROCKS too, so this is definitely a winning combo!! I can't wait to see the movie.
Again, LOVE your artwork!!!

Nice work... But doesn't look like Johnny Depp... They should take it down like they did three of my pieces I entered for the contest...

To be quite honest, the first time I saw a photograph... YES PHOTOGRAPH... of Johnny Depp in Barnabas costume, I did not recognize Depp. AND... even after being told it was Johnny Depp, it was a difficult recognition for me.

When I first read his comment, the words "sour grapes" popped into my mind.

Deb, I'm with you... my mouth would be wide open, but there would be no words.
There is just something about him... can't place my finger on it... but he's been on the top of my list for longer than any other actor.
