Here's a list of my top 10 favorite Tim Burton movies. I'll be listing them from 10 to 1 right here.

#10.) Dark Shadows- Though it's new to Tim Burton fans like me, this film is a comical take on the gothic soap opera from the 60's, and one of my favorites. Johnny Depp plays a silly, but tragic vampire who was put under the ancient curse of an evil witch and tries to restore balance to his modern day disfunctional family. It also has a special guest appearance of Alice Cooper, who Barbabas calls, "Ugliest woman I have ever seen."

#9.) Edward Scissorhands- It's a sad movie aout being alone and feeling unwanted by the public. It was also the first film where Burton casted Depp in the leading role. Even though critics like Siskle and Ebert didn't like it (becasue their review was unjustified), it's still today a Tim Burton classic. It also stars Winona Ryder as Edward's love interest and Vincent Price, who Burton idolized as a child and casted as the narrator of his first animated short, Vincent, as the inventor of the title character who died before he finnish him.

#8.) Frankenweenie- Also a new project which I really enjoy watching again and again, it's based on a live action that Tim Burton created. Basically this film is a kid friendly stop-motion animated retelling of Frankenstein. It's funny, scary and has loads of memorable characters in it, besides little Victor and Sparky the dog. This is also another film with the voices of Catherine O'Hara, Martin Short, and Winona Ryder.

#7.) Alice in Wonderland- Most of you would probably turn to the Disney animated feature, but this is more epic than any other version of Alice that I've seen. This a dark and twisted telling of the Louis Carrol classic, about our title character returning to Wonderland to stop the evil Red Queen, played by Burton's wife Helena Bonham Carter, with the help of the Mad Hatter, played once again by Johnny Depp, and the White Queen played by Anne Hathaway. What I like about this film is that it not only makes Alice a stronger character, but it also recreates the Hatter, and both queens into three dimentional characters. It's also one of the last Michael Gough performances before his death.

#6.) Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street- If you're familair with the story of Sweeney Todd, or seen the opera, then you would know that this film is about another barber played by Johnny Depp, who was persucuted and banished unjustly by an evil judge inorder to steal his wife and child, and sought revenge against him, while he murders his customers and has his parter in crime, Ms. Lovett (Helana Bonham Carter), make their corpses into pies. I'm not really into musicals, but this is an awesome gore fest of musicals, without even Danny Elfman composing.

#5.) Batman- My favorite version of my favorite comic book superhero, next to the Animated Series. Even though Micheal Keaton didn't look much like the part, he still was able act the part out. And his performance would definately put Christian Bale's performance to shame. I also think that Jack Nicholson's peformance as the live action Joker was perfect, he knew how to play his role, funny and menacing at the same time. Plus you got to love the sound of Danny Elfman's theme song. The film was the first movie to keep in the dark and serious spirit of Batman.

#4.) Sleepy Hollow- A darker and gruesome take on the Washington Irving story. It's the third time after Ed Wood, that Burton casted Johnny Depp as the lead. Depp's character of Ichabod Crane was changed from a school teacher in the original story and into a comical constaple, sent from New York City to investigate decapitations of some of the most important people in Sleepy Hollow. Soon realizing that the murders were commited by the Headless Horseman Of Sleepy Hollow! It's a very great movie and the first horror film to be created by Tim Burton.

#3.) Corpse Bride- You may see it as just a poor rip off of The Nightmare Before Christmas, but this is yet another amazing film about love and a Grave misunderstanding. I can see that Tim Burton really loves Johnny as much as his wife, so he casted him as the voice of the leading man and Helena as the Corpse Bride herself. :XD: The film also has Danny Elfman as not only the copmoser and song writer, but as the voice of a skeleton named BoneJangles. It's just another fun and entertaining Tim Burton classic.

#2.) The Nightmare Before Christmas- The ultimate of all Tim Burton classics, this is a film about the King of Halloween who discovers the world of Christmas Town and decides to steal the role of Santa Claus, not knowing about the consequences it would have on the children of the world. It was a short story that Burton wrote, then with the help of Henry Selick, he was able to make this into a very successful stop-motion animated feature.

Before I get to Number 1, here are some Honorable Mentions:

Ed Wood

Big Fish

Pee-Wee's Big Adventure

9

Batman Returns


#1.) Beetlejuice (of course ;))- My favorite Tim Burton movies of all time! As you can tell by the count of fan drawings I do. When I was a kid, I actually saw reruns of the Beetlejuice cartoons on TV, and loved everyepisode of it, with it's imaginative world, characters, and humour. It's a show that really blows my mind with it's awesomeness. But when I saw the movie, I was abit surpsired to see the title character was actually the villain, not just a typical wise cracking con artist who loves pulling pranks, but a psychotic killing phantom who tries to force the goth girl, Lydia (Winona Ryder) into marrying him. The film was focuses more on the previous owners, played by Alec Baldwin and Gena Davis, who died in a car accident, came back as ghosts and have to share their home with Lydia and her family. Since they fail to scare them off, who do you think they turn to? :iconevilgrinplz: So I really enjoy this film, even though it's underrated. But it still holds up today with his dark humour and performance of Micheal Keaton as the lead.

though he'll be sucking the red out of something else later

I was going to draw these two in my original style, but figured that was too difficult, then I wanted to do fionna and try to remake that scene from the first Spiderman movie where he kisses Mary Jane in the rain.

Ended up with this, mildly pleased on how it came out, especially Gumball, Gumball looks great

I was at a funeral the day
I realized, I wanted to
spend my life with you.
sitting down on the steps
at the old post office,
the flag was flying at half mast
and I was thinking 'bout
how everyone is dying,
and maybe it is time to live

I don't know where we're going
I don't know what we'll do

laying in bed tonight,
I was thinking & listening
to all the dogs & the sirens
and the shots & how a careful
man tries to dodge the bullets,
while a happy man takes a walk

and maybe it is time to live


:frog: :orange: :skullbones:


I'm too tired to write much about this, but it's some well overdue fanart of Death from the Sandman. I actually used to draw her all the time in high school, when I first started reading Gaiman, but probably haven't done anything of her in over 7 years now so that's why it's overdue.

I drew a Day of the Dead pin-up in october (just of a random girl, not Death) & ended up losing that drawing. :( so this also is my attempt at recapturing what I had with that original piece. when I started kicking around the idea of drawing miss dee again, it made total sense to me that she should be a dotd pin-up. it all really clicked into place when I saw KidNotorius' wonderful new art of her, Muerte: [link] .. I have never seen her depicted as a dotd pin-up before, on da or the web, so I'm hoping that this is a take on her that's all mine. :) I am surprised that no one's done it before though!

I did contemplate keeping my pallette more limited, since she's never depicted with any color, but I couldn't help myself. plus it's dotd, which is infused with color, and if she were just straight black & white I didn't think it would look appropriate. I also like the irony of her being Death, yet having face make-up with flowers & wearing green, both symbols of life. her sigil is there but I don't like how it turned out at all so I kind of cut it out of the picture.

well, I guess I did write a lot about it anyway. =P

done with Copics, Prismacolor markers & colored pencils. I also tweaked the levels a bit in photoshop cs2.

and a special shout-out to :iconkidnotorious: again. I've always loved his version of Death, so a lot of the inspiration for this piece goes to him. :hug:

ahoy!
yesterday i wrote a very smart status on facebook :"YOHOHO AND A BOTTLE OF RUM" and after a lot of comments and watching a pirate episode from south park, i realized i really want to draw pirates, and what better way to satisfy this need if not drawing almost all the characters from the movies pirates of the Caribbeans?

it includes characters from all of the movies, at the top is the black pearl :D
and going down:
Davy Jones, the Kraken, mermaid, Philip, Norrington, Governor Weatherby Swann , Captain Teague, Ragetti, Pintel, Tia Dalma, Blackbeard, Angelica Teach, Will Turner, Elizabeth Swann (i hate those 2 so much), Barbossa, Joshamee Gibbs and the very drunk Jack Sparrow.
oh, and the monkey :D

it was so much fun! and so many references!
