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.
