A Barnabas Collins Disco Entry by Winter-Evening A Barnabas Collins Disco Entry by Winter-Evening
Immersing himself even deeper into 1970s culture, Barny Collins develops the symptoms of Disco Fever.

Digital Painting completed with ArtRage 3 Studio Pro for the Dark Shadows Contest.

I have a more humorous entry here:

Very Gary Glitter (disco was still a few years awayin 1972, but the "glam" movement was in full swing.)

Thanks for introducing me to Gary Glitter and the Glam Rock movement! It's always interesting to uncover a bit of cultural history of which I have been hitherto unaware.

No problem, glad to be a potential source of epiphany! Of course in 1972, GG was still legendary and decades away from his later "nefarious" activities. Barnabas seems to combine elements of several early 70's glam rock musicians, including, but not limited to, GG as well as David Bowie etc.

Great job btw in conveying the different plays of light and (Dark) shadow.

Thanks! I felt his hair needed to be bigger than they portrayed in the movie clip.

He looks a lot like he did in Edward Scissor Hands because of the hair style and distant/sad look

I see that. Wasn't really thinking of Edward for the hair, but it is approaching his bigger, wilder hairstyle.

Wow - this is the first one I've seen that's going for the 70's look! It's hard to know if that's what we're actually supposed to do, so I'm doing one two different styles. Good luck to you!

I think they intentionally leave enough ambiguity to encourage creativity, so it's good that you're going with a couple different styles. Good luck to you too!

I love this! I didn't even think about a rhinestone jacket! Ha, I thought my idea for disco was unique, but i guess everyone else thought of it too.

Colors look excellent- lovin that jacket too- if they didnt have that in the movie they missed out :D

Thanks! I was a little surprised watching the trailer that there wasn't quite as much emphasis on Disco and the 70s fashion trends that epitomize the era. I thought I'd try to bring some of that back to the film with this piece. Rhinestone jackets rule!

Thanks! I notice that you went with a disco theme as well. It does seem quite appropriate, given the time-frame, doesn't it? Good luck!
