1.) Because I can, of course. 2.) I see good meme's about fanDOMS, but never any about fan CHARACTERS. 3.) Because I'm bored and I have writers block for my Drop Dead Fred Fanfic and I REALLY wanted to submit something again. x_x
And will I myself be doing this, hmm?
WELL OF COURSE I WILL.
*eyes Battyjuice, Prince Jack and Stephen, and Princess Sally*
Batty: I knew it, I knew it, I knew it...-_-;
Jack: Er, this should be interesting...
Stephen: *runs like hell*
Sally: Meh, whatever. Not like I have anything ELSE to do! :<
BWAHAHAHA!!! Hope everyone has fun torturing their fan characters with this. I know I will!
*hides* xD Why am I putting this up? I don't know... Well, okay, I do know... Because a miss Rebekah made me color it and stuff...so now I have to put it up!! Oh yeah, and BJ's dialouge is supposed to look all gross since he's drunk, so I intentionally let the yellow mix with the black ink to get that icky color xP
This is based on a very weird conversation me and Bekah had....it started out with just Jack Sparrow...
This was our convo...only slightly edited. xP
witchy_wanda666: Ok, call me stupid, but...I just realized my Jack looks like BJ in a Jack costume and with maybe make-up on his face and stuff..
forever_knight77: Mmm.. No, I dont think so. Just similar styles
witchy_wanda666: Yeah... but...but... if I made his nose a little more out there and crooked like ...
forever_knight77: Mmm... maybeeeee
witchy_wanda666: Buuuut I don't think BJ would go that far @_@ I mean...you'd think BJ would be JEALOUS of him because Jack gets more attention than he does
witchy_wanda666: BJ: *grumble grumble* What's Lyds see in that guy anyways...suuure he's a pirate an his accent's cool and stuff...but he's sooo weird! He staggers around all the time and is ALWAYS drunk! *I* don't do that! ...*pouts* I can't even GET drunk..
witchy_wanda666: I still am sooo curious... What would BJ be like drunk?! Weird and wobbly like Jack? Goofy and kinda childish... or maybe...he'd be a big horn dog!
forever_knight77: mmm... probably a horndog!
witchy_wanda666: Yeah but he'd probably also be a bit childish too.. I can see him asking lots of questions and poking at everything and just not shutting up at all. @_@
witchy_wanda666: Until someone does something to shut him up.... Lyds could flash her 'girls' at him and then he'd be just...standing there... Just staring...
witchy_wanda666: And then he'd attack!!
Well, there you go! And it was so funny that I just started scribblin' and got this...
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 3-4-2012 — Holy cow, what DIDN'T I fix on this one! Well, I cleaned up the image a lot, enlarged it, cropped it better, smoothed out much of the colors, and most obviously, added a vintage grungy background and a slight sepia tone over the characters to help them further blend in.
This is another of my all-time favorites that I've ever drawn. And now I've fallen in love with it all over again.
EDIT 3-20-2012 — Now, unlike a lot of the other profile images for the characters in my "Beetlejuice Afterlife" series that had gone mysteriously missing (because dA likes to do stuff like that now and again), Lydia's profile image was still showing up. But, I felt it necessary to update it the same as the other profile images I've updated recently.
That being said, the changes I made were: Enlarged the image and repositioned the character. I also added the back view of Lydia, not shown in the original profile image. I also added a background, her name, and some glowy effects to make the character stand off the background better. I even went into the original Illustrator file and altered the color of her skin, eyeshadow, and bottom lip. It's not a big difference, but at least she doesn't have white skin with grey shading and blue-jeans-colored eye shadow. I even added her pink eyelid shading. I dunno, I just really like nit-picking details, I guess.
I just hope everything I did was an improvement.
Some parts of the original post have been changed / added to.
Stories : "Beetlejuice Afterlife - A New Beginning & Dark Shadows"
What's BJ without Lydia?! Again, this was an older picture I'm not that thrilled with. My art style has changed much since this, but I just can't get around to doing new profile pictures to replace these old ones. I still think it's not that bad for using Illustrator though.
Her outfit was designed after actual gothic clothing patterns found online. I'm in love with her pants, personally. They have see-though areas down the outside of each side of her legs.
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".
Font downloaded from [link] It's called Brown Bear Funk. I had three choices, and this one won.
My versions of Beej and Lyds kissing. Aw, it's cute. And, I don't want it stolen, so I had dA put a watermark in there for me. Yeah, I'm a bitch like that.
I'm in a sort of mental depression where I don't feel like watching anything, reading anything, hearing anything. I feel blah-it happened yesterday too. I've slept most of my weekend away. That really sucks. So since I could work on nothing else, Beej and Lydia got my attention cause they're one of the best damn couples around (if they are the same age group).
Yeah, Lyds hit a growth spurt while Beej is dead and will never hit puberty so he and his girl are the same heighth. Good for her. Why aren't they plastered together for a kiss? Well, cause Lyds has boobs and Beej is a bit overweight, so not good for squishy/squeeze kisses. I may not be great with my drawing and art, but their hair kicks ass. Especially Lydia's.

Teenage 2007 styles of both (C) Me
If you wish to draw the styles of them which I have created, please either send me a note asking to do so, link to my profile or this page, or add my avatar : icontwistedtuesday : (you know without the spaces between the words and the colons), OR even mention TwistedTuesday as the redesign artist for the two. Thanks a bunch.
The final version: complete and colored. I put this in Traditional art because I did more work on the drawing than I did for the computer added things. All that was finished on the computer was the lyrics and the ribbon. The drawing took much more time and ability to get finished.
Lydia and Beetlejuice enjoying a dance together, and this drawing was inspired by the song "If I Never Knew You" from the cartoon Disney movie: Pocahontas (that looks like it is spelled wrong, it might be.) They're supposed to be dancing in midair, but I couldn't show that in the drawing. I like how the drawing came out, and the background's okay. It wasn't what I invisioned, but I couldn't get what I invisioned to come out onto the page.

"IF I NEVER KNEW YOU" (C) DISNEY AND BUENA VISA... I think that's it.
This has been finished for weeks now. I made it a while back but didnt get it colored until way after that. So I used images from the scanned lineart (which I had plans to post but never did) to make my avatar. In case my avatar goes by too fast (I know it does, I'm just too lazy to fix it) it says "If you could only see how blue her eyes can be When she says she loves me. Dani X Sam DP GB" I'm sticking with calling her Dani. I don't like it with two 'n's because that's not how I've grown up seeing that name spelled.
This was inspired by the song by Tonic "If you could only see." Every time since I got into the DPGB, I've heard the one line about how blue her eyes can be and thought of Dani. So finally, after about a year, I drew something about it.
Since I'm depressed and logged in to add something anyway, this finally got put up. Hope you DP GB fans enjoy it.
This was also before I figured out that coloring with the peach pencil lightly looks much better than really pressing hard.
Danny Phantom characters (no matter what gets done to them) are Butch Hartmans creations.
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!
