Barnabas Nouveau by spacemonkeydr Barnabas Nouveau by spacemonkeydr
Barnabas Collins in an art nouveau style, surrounded by elements from his character and the movie.

Took about 10 hours from start to finish, 100% Photoshop. I tried to use minimal colors, as I usually do t-shirt designs which requires that, so I only used 6 colors, the gradients can be half-toned. I'm pretty happy with the end results, what do you think? Please leave a comment/critique, thanks!

While you won 3rd place in the contest, I like your entry the best.
It captures Johnny Depp's take on Barnabas \well. Not to mention the border and the background is really cool. I love Barnabas' expression, too :lol:

nice! this piece is evidence that either a.) someone woke Barnabas up somewhere between 1890-1910...or... b.) Mucha was a vampire himself...and created this somewhere earlier than the late 1700's and then went into hiding shortly there-after... but seriously....this piece is really well done...i would wear one as a tee...everyday

Ah, recalling Alphonse Mucha, here; love the intricate nameplate below the figure. This could easily fit upon a Parisian wall as an advert for the film. I love how you have incorporated symbols of the undead in the "halo" around Barnabas. Of course, Angelique must look down on all of this. The seahorses are a fine touch, as are the cobwebs. The color palette, while minimal, evokes mystery and suspense. Barnabas, himself, is rendered with a clarity of detail in the clothing, hands, and face. Well done, and good luck to you!

Art nouveau style, for the "nouveau" Barnabas. I love the little details in the windows around his head that symbolize his new life, and also Angelique above his head.
