It does! Looks fantastic! What’s your inspiration?


painty_mimi OP t1_jc5t9tq wrote

Thank you so much!! I don't really have much of an inspiration this is just my style. I tend to draw like this when I get anxious so I worked on turning that into my art style. I'm actually a small artist and all my work looks similar to this although this one was a bit experimental for me.

Hope that wasn't oversharing πŸ˜…

Nightmare before christmas was my initial thought.


painty_mimi OP t1_jc5tb7e wrote

I haven't seen that, would you recommend?


Sim0nsaysshh t1_jc5u3vn wrote

Yeah your art style suggests you probably would.


painty_mimi OP t1_jc62mns wrote

Probably would like It?


Sim0nsaysshh t1_jc63kz2 wrote

Its not always a given, people look at my interests and suggest things, sometimes they are right and wrong. But the art style is similar and its made my Tim Burton


savvyblackbird t1_jc7snbt wrote

You probably will. It’s amazing and beautiful with characters that are still extremely popular even though the movie came out in the 90s. Occasionally you can find it playing in theaters. Usually around Halloween. You’d probably love Corpse Bride too.

I also think you’d love Edward Gorey if you don’t already. He wrote some amazing macabre children’s books illustrated with his pen and ink drawings.


painty_mimi OP t1_jc8frfl wrote

I've seen corpse bride!! It's so...I think it's best to describe it by saying what someone else on here said and call it hauntingly beautiful.

I'll definitely check out Edward Gorey, thanks for the suggestion!

Getting some Jhonen Vasquez/Tim Burton vibes from this.

I immediately thought of the little sad ghost girl from Squee.


savvyblackbird t1_jc7qkeh wrote

I love Invader Zim but hadn’t heard of Squee or Johnny C. until today. Thank you so much!


drifterswound t1_jc7t3vj wrote

I believe the Johnny and Squee comics are both available in a trade paper back. It's been awhile since I've read them but if you're a fan of Zim you'll enjoy them both. Just a warning the Johnny comics get pretty dark and unsettling. Squee is still pretty dark but leans more into the humor.


savvyblackbird t1_jc7vbp0 wrote

I saw Squee was available as a book now. I love dark and macabre stuff. I’m a proud deathling and also don’t mind disturbing. Thanks for the warning, though.

Really cool, I sometimes like do something similar and see what arises. Kinda inspires me to try playing around with this method a bit more.


painty_mimi OP t1_jc7qnj7 wrote

Oh please do!! The process was very fun! And if you do I hope you'll post it here for everyone to see πŸ˜†

Bf is right. That’s really cool.

Looks good. I like it. I would bring the body in black all the way down but wouldn't add anything. Maybe taper the body out.


LostMyAccountToo t1_jc6tyo6 wrote

Very Nightmare before Christmas vibes.

You should check out Tim Burtons art work. He incorporates it in all.his films.

Like the statue in Beetlejuice


painty_mimi OP t1_jc6wq27 wrote

I love Tim Burton's work. I haven't seen them all though, nightmare before christmas is on my list!!
