If you're interested in seeing my thought process/drawing process of this piece, I've recorded a video in the link below! :D (Big Grin)

My dearest friend, if you don't mind
I'd like to join you by your side,
where we can gaze into the stars
And sit together,
now and forever
For it is plain as anyone can see,
We're simply meant to be

I started getting into this 'Tim-Burton' mood, and ended up watching his films like The Corpse Bride & The Nightmare Before Christmas leading up to Halloween, so it was only natural that I felt like recreating and commemmorating the festivities inspired by one of my favourite films. For those unfamiliar, this is the iconic ending scene of the film, The Nightmare Before Christmas, where Jack Skellington realizes his feelings for Sally. Of course, it's my own interpretation of the scene, which I thought was a lot warmer and touching, despite the eerie-cold macabre setting of the film.

I love how the lines organically draw you in to the moon and the silhouettes of Jack and Sally! So pretty!

I absolutely love Tim Burton's works and especially Nightmare Before Halloween. This just inspires me to just draw and explore my own creativity. Great job on the artwork. Keep up the great work. :)
