Labyrinth Guide - Firey Page 2 by Chaotica-I Labyrinth Guide - Firey Page 2 by Chaotica-I
Page for my "Practical Visitor's Guide to the Labyrinth"
Painted in Photoshop CS5, using the film as reference.
About 7 hours of work.
The Labyrinth and it's Characters are Jim Henson
This guide however belongs to me!!!

Sorry about the copious watermarks. They aren't going anywhere. Don't ask. I am SO proud of this project so far, and would hate to see any part of this turn up somewhere else.

Please note that I don't have time to say "thank you" for every favourite, but I appreciate them all nonetheless! Thank you all for your support!!!

The Fireys won in my poll, and I figured they'd be fun. Thought they'd be a challenge, but I had no idea what I was in for! They were really difficult to paint! All the random colours and textures... took longer than I though. I guess I'm a glutton for punishment though, because after finishing the first page, I decided to go with a two-page-spread. Glad I did, I had a lot of fun in the end :XD:
Chilly Down! :lmao:

About the "Practical Visitor's Guide to the Labyrinth" Project
I have handbooks, guide books, and field guides to a million different species of animal, and thought that it would be interesting to make one for the creatures of one of my all time favourite films, Labyrinth! The idea is to create a page (or spread) for the various creatures that Sarah encountered in the Labyrinth.

I'm REALLY interested in feedback on these. I do plan to continue working on more pages. What other Labyrinth creatures would you like to see? How can I make these better? I'd love any and all feedback!

I just read that thing at the bottom of the page saying they never sleep. I wonder if that's why they act so weird.Giggle

Funny thing, if you don't throw unpermissioned someone else s head they won't make you throw yours! Normally.

I LOVED these guys! They were so creepy and yet funny and cute at the same time. Great work!

I think this is an awesome idea. It's very interesting and humorous. The artwork is just amazing, it's so realistic. If this sold in the stores I'd definitely buy a copy.
