In Tim Burton's latest film, Dark Shadows, Johnny Depp plays the dashing, charismatic vampire Barnabas Collins, a relic of the Victorian age who is freed from two centuries of entombment to find his family, fortune and beloved Collinwood Manor in ruins. To save his family, Barnabas must learn to make sense of the modern world – and there's nothing like a total image makeover to shake off the dust and get with the times.

Well, I entered one of these contests, for a change...and I managed to make something that's NOT crap, considering it was on the first page of popular entries for a short time!

I have a bad feeling that it will be all for naught, though...a lot of these other entries seem much more original...

Just for clarity's sake:

SELECTION OF WINNERS: Potential winners will be selected on or about April 25, 2012 from all eligible entries. Ten (10) semi-finalists will be selected by full-time deviantART Staff, on the basis of Overall Visual Impact, Success As A Portrait Of The Character Barnabas From Dark Shadows, and Technical Skill . The semi-finalists will be posted in advance of final judging. Only one Work per Entrant may be chosen as a semi-finalist Entry. From the ten (10) semi-finalists, the three (3) top winners will be selected by the director of Dark Shadows, Tim Burton. The three (3) top winners will be announced on or about May 11, 2012.

Semi-finalists are to be selected on or about the 25th, but not necessarily announced then. I take this to mean that semi-finalists can be announced any time between now and May 10th.

So relax, guys. No need to check the site every 20 minutes. :nod: Judging by the number of entries to sort through, they are most likely going to need some time.

Gah! The suspense is killing me! I know patience is a virtue. I'm not necessarily complaining, just saying I'm impatient lol. I mean, I know I probably won't even make the semi-finalists, cause of all the other awesome entries, but I need to know haha. Good luck to everyone who entered, and I congrats to whoever gets chosen!
