Announcing the 10 Semi-Finalists delivered to Tim Burton for his final judgment!

Our staff judges pored through thousands of portraits featuring Barnabas, a dashing vampire played by Johnny Depp in Tim Burton’s latest film, Dark Shadows. It wasn’t easy but we finally narrowed it down to these special 10 Semi-Finalists for the Dark Shadows Barnabas Portrait Project!

In addition to cash awards, points, backpacks and devWEAR, the Grand-Winner as well as Second and Third place winners will be made into framed prints and presented to Tim Burton as a gift from the deviantART community. The remaining 7 Semi-Finalists will get a dA Digital Backpack, Dark Shadows merchandise, deviantART Points and a One Year Premium Membership to deviantART!

The one and only Tim Burton will now select the final three winners!

I also wish that the rule about signing your work was a little more obvious as I was one that missed that little gem.

As a Tradtional Artist I always feel a little bit out matched with the digital contestants. So for this contest I took my painting and turned it into a few digital pieces as well. Wish it was in the top ten. I have to say the top ten are not the ones I would have picked perhaps one or two of them were but their were others I personally liked better. I guess that is a matter of taste but In the rules they did say that skill was part of the judging and I got to say that the level of skill in the top ten is not as good as the ones I liked. Not going to rant and rave about my entries because as the contest was closing out I saw some many great pieces entered into this contest. I truly feel that the selections were weak at best and Tim Burton not going to see the great art that was created. Perhaps running a contest with both digital and traditional in one category is a BAD idea... oh well. Had to at least throw in my two cents. Sorry to offend the winners If I did I do feel at least some of you deserve to be there.

I'm having a guess that the 3rd and 7th ones will be in the top two.

The last one is my Fave but the one where he is holding the umbrella above it is pretty awesome too.
Two of these I won't mention which ones are awful and don't fit the theme or character at all or look like they were done by a young child
