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.





We've got more background info on Dark Shadows to help you create your original, all-new, portrait of Johnny Depp as Barnabas. Check out the asset pack for reference shots of Collinwood Manor, Barnabas, helpful links to interviews with Tim Burton, and a full creative brief about the film.


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.
