Okay, I should TOTALLY be packing. I move in less than four days. wait... three days. *sigh*

But sometimes you get an idea, and you sit down and then you just get swallowed by it. Hence, this painting. When I get to crossroads in my life, for some reason I find myself turning back to Labyrinth. It's my way of centering myself, and it's cheaper than therapy.

This image is based on a fanfic I'm working on. No references were used (and I'm a little proud of that... and scared. There's something a little strange about being able to paint Jareth utterly from memory). The color scheme is very deliberately sort of gothic/film noir and there's some important stuff going on with the composition and posing.

I do have to say, I think this is one of my favorite Labyrinth paintings so far. It came out very different than I thought it would, but I really, really like it.

Labyrinth, Jareth, Sarah etc are (c) Jim Henson, David Bowie, Brian Froud and whoever else owns those particular rights.

PLEASE, no copying, no avatars, do not upload to your myspace or photobucket accounts, no use without talking to me first

Could you post a link to the fanfic that inspired this?  I would love to read your writing as well as see the visual.  Great job, by the way!  I love the feeling of darkness that you bring across.

Are you going to be selling prints of this image.  I love it, and would love to have a print of it.

I adore this so much, it's amazing! I will happily state I was able to watch the Labyrinth 310 in under 4 months, making it easily my favorite movie. Wonderful job on the picture!

Very nice. I'd agree with the therapy bit. :D

Hey, would you be willing to share where we could find your fan fiction?
