Can Beetlejuice resist the temptation of the sleeping beauty??? Just finished this one and wanted to upload it while I thought of it. Im working on different things in my drawings lately.. trying to get more details.. more touchable looks. I really should redo some of my older works to see how they would be now. You can see the morph of time and learning in my drawings. Haha.
EDIT 3-20-2012 — BJ's profile image needed updated since I've been re-doing everyone else's.
I enlarged the image, repositioned the character, and added the back view that wasn't in the original image. I noticed BJ's legs were abnormally long, so I went in and shortened those up, so now he looks more normal. The background is new as well as his name there and a slight glowy effect.
Some parts of the original post have been changed.
Stories : "Beetlejuice Afterlife - A New Beginning & Dark Shadows"
This is my version of the one and only Beetlejuice! I figured I'd throw this up here and a few other similar ones of the characters I've made/remade and such. BJ is just the first!
This is an older picture that I did with Illustrator, and I'm not that happy with it anymore, but still, here it is.
Tools used: Pencil, Illustrator, Photoshop
To read the story, head to FanFiction.net to read my series "Beetlejuice Afterlife" which contains the stories "A New Beginning" and "Dark Shadows".
"Im not going out tonight ,cos I dont want to go,
I am staying at home tonight, cos I dont want to know,
You revealed a world to me and I would never be
Dweling in such happiness, your gift of purity."
Oiy.. Yeah.. Groovy mates... Thanks David Bowie fan club for all the favourites.
I'd also like to thank whichever moderators (that must have been Labyrinth fans) decided to make the version I put up on Elfwood a moderators choice! [link] <--- I am feeling much love here for this pic mates.
I'm deff. feeling up to doing another Labyrinth inspired piece.. uhh.. eventually... or maybe even a little something from David Bowie's Jazzin with Blue Jean video where he's all dressed up in the paint with the puppet strings falling out of his hands and stuff. That lil video short is hilarous. "I'm speechless really!" Anyway... Just wanted to say THANKS! And if any more Bowie Devotee's are coming on here don't be afraid to leave a comment letting me know what your favourite bit of Bowie is!
This is a little gift for *skittleme420
She and I used to watch Beetlejuice all the time way back when, and even now still love that old ghoul. Not too long ago we went to Universal and got to see "Beetlejuice's Rock 'n' Roll Graveyard Revue". This images reminded me of that, since he came out of an upright coffin during the show.
Now for the technical stuff! First off, I put this in the "traditional" category rather than "digital" because the pencil sketch took way longer than coloring it did. Second, I did draw this from a picture, but in all fairness it was a very small picture in the booklet of my Beetlejuice Gameboy (yes, that's the original Gameboy) game, and the only color in it was shades of purple, and some white. As a final note, I will be making a slight addtion to this later, namely the cg guy (his name has escaped me) you see in almost every episode will be put on the blank screen which sists in the top left corner of the coffin. I'm going to edit this image, rather than reposting it, so if you want to fav it, feel free.
So not too recently it became "stylish" for men to wear pink... I never really got it, but whatever, mine is not to question. Anyho, I noticed that Beetlejuice had been sporting a pink shirt, for years, and he makes it look good. :r
I didn't get into the bg on this cause I thought it might clutter up the image. I considered using a photo of a department store, but couldn't find one I liked.
Click for full view, it's the only one worth seeing.
As for what they're doing in the store, and why BJ didn't see the need to disguise himself as he normally does in the mortal realm, uhh... ummm... lokk at this puppy! *flee*
I love that BJ can turn into inanimate objects! It makes ideas flow so much more freely! In case you can't tell, he's a ball of yarn. :r
Boring technical stuff:
I did something a bit different with this one- instead of drawing in graphite, inking it, scanning, and coloring on the pc, I did the graphite drawing, scanned it, and used the miracle of layering to do the outline. ^-^ I have no tablet, so I had to use my mouse and the line drawing tool. :/ More than once I outlined some on the wrong layer and had to go over it again. I also utilized the paintbrush tool more than usual, and tried to go a little heavier on the shading and lighting. Also, Beetlejuice's mouth is red because I couldn't get it to show up any other way.
Beetlejuice and Lydia... I had the idea for this drawing while watching the episode "Bewitched, bothered and beetlejuiced", during the part where Lydia says "buuut... if we go to the witches' ball, you might get the chance to beetlejuice some witches!", and only their outlines are visible. Only difference I changed Lydia's expression and now she seems just disappointed about something and BJ looks pretty shocked. Maybe she wants him to take a bath... or maybe... she thinks it's time to go visit his parents again... or else... doh, dunno! You decide what's best for her to tell him
I know this is an old drawing of mine ([link]) but I wanted to edit it and so I did... cause I wanted to try the pen tool in Photoshop and I thought tracing an old drawing could be a good way for improving. So... here it is! Much cleaner than the older one too
Anyway... this is from a cartoon called "Beetlejuice", the picture is taken from the episode "Out of my mind" and this scene... well, imagine him saying "now, explain to me... what does this mean?" while twirling the spaghetti... lol.
Its a gift for all Beetlejuice fans out there. Many of you guys wanted to see what will happen, when my comic Lydia meets BJ. So here you have it! The second and final page will appear later, cause Im very busy right now.
PS. This comic is only one-shot and has nothing to do with my comic project Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice( click here [link] if you want to read it).
"Brides of Funkenstein" was the only episode from "Beetlejuice" which I have remembered since my childhood. It has an awesome script and wonderful moral about self-confidence.
And now ladies and gentlemen,ghosts and ghouls I'm presenting you the Brides of Funkenstein(from left)-Bertha, Prudence and Lydia. If you want to see their live performance just click here:[link] and here:[link] ..............................................................................................
"Make your face look creepy, then dance all around like you've got the heebie jeebies. Stomp on some bugs till you make them go crunch, then flip your wig cuz you just caught lunch! You're getting dangerous kid! Be smart, take notes, of my heavy metal ryhme. You too will be a wild one in no time. First you make noises, crazy and loud! Brewster be a rooster, join the crowd! You're getting dangerous kid!"

Beetlejuice folded his hands behind his head as he walked and looked up, "Oh, this has to be the best day of my life..."
Lydia giggled and hugged him. "Mine too..."
"No way, it was mine first!" Beetlejuice joked, and gave her a noogie.
"Hey!" Lydia responded and laughed.

Oy, three Beetlejuice drawings in a row! I don't know what's coming over me... I guess my brain just focuses on one fandom at a time...
Anyhoo, another RP illustration! Weeeeee!! I just thought this scene was cute, and it was just begging to be drawn! x333333
And before you ask: yes, they're covered with slime Basically, they just played this game at a festival where you have to hit as many balloons as you can with any sharp object, and the one who hits the one full of slime wins... And gets covered with it!
I thought it'd be fun to experiment a little with my inking, and I gotta say: the thick outlines do look pretty good ^^

"Besides, Lyds, I cut those wires to pieces" Beetlejuice flailed his arms. He then turned around and folded them, "What? Do you expect the power to come back on like magic?"
They were silent for a while but then Beetlejuice opened his eyes wide with a gasp, "Magic? That's it!" He turned around shaking Lydia wildly and gave her a kiss on the cheek, "Babes! You're a genius!"
Lydia was left dumbfounded, and almost automatically, she touched the spot on her face where Beetlejuice had kissed her, and blushed yet again. "Uh-huh..."

What's this? Something based on an RP, and it's NOT ~bleedingangel515's Strange Strays?! What has the world come to?
Okay, so I got a little obsessed with this moment in the RP. It was just so random and cute, I had to! x333 Anyhoo, don't ask about the little rip i Lydia's poncho. It's a long story
I adooooooooooooooore how BJ's smile in the second panel came out!!! When I was done sketching it, I actually prayed the Lord that I wouldn't mess it up
Beetlejuice and Lydia belong to Tim Burton and WB
Oh, and Gosen, I know I edited the written part, and I know they're not in their wire-disguises - but aren't they just the cuuuuuuuuuuutest? x//3
FINALLY!!! I kicked myself in the butt and decided to do some Beetlejuice fanart in the original style!! BJ's shirt collar is surprisingly tough to draw And don't even get me started on the damn colors! I had to blend two-three colors just to get the right scheme - and it's not even right!
Oh well. Despite all that, I'm really happy about how this came out. Especially Lydia's smile/mouth. I thought for sure I was gonna mess that up!
As for Ronnie Wood... Well, he is/was having a relationship with a late-teen, isn't/wasn't he?
Beetlejuice and Lydia belong to each other *BRICK'D* Okay, okay... To Tim Burton and WB...
