A lot of people are saying they have always been so inspired by Tim Burton or a huge fan or Johnny Depp. Obviously I am no different. However, what I admire most is not the acting, or the career, or the movies (while those are all fantastic) it is their view of life and their personality that is what I find so fascinating.
I have spent a lot of time looking through the entries and noticed a lot of them (while some better than others and quite skillfully done) look very similar. It is the same pose or the same technique, or a lot of people claiming they painted something when I can see the smudge tool's ugly mark with pixelation of an image behind it.
I am hoping my style comes off as original and different enough that it stands out above others. Winning this contest would mean a lot for me (not just because Tim Burton would see it because yes, that is very much amazing and I would be honored), but I am engaged and my fiance and I are paying for the wedding ourselves. Every dime won would go directly to that. We do not have a lot of money, but want our day to be very special and represent us. We want it to be as unique as we are, the same way Tim Burton and Johnny Depp show their uniqueness every day.
