Labyrinth Guide - Tendril Jack by Chaotica-I Labyrinth Guide - Tendril Jack by Chaotica-I
Page for my "Practical Visitor's Guide to the Labyrinth"
Painted in Photoshop CS5, using the film as reference.
About 8 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!!!


Lucky Page #13 :party:
After painting up the Goblin Knight page, I decided that the steeds were worthy of a page all by themselves. I could not find any information on them whatsoever, anywhere I looked... so felt free to just let the creative juices flow, and make it all up myself ;P
Still not sure how I feel about the name, I mulled a lot of possibilities over in my head (Tendril Steeds, Tendril Mares, Tendril Mules, Tendril Colts, Tendril Ponies, etc.), but something about Tendril Jacks just seemed to stick. May wind up changing it at some point :shrug: What do you think?

I love what your imagination came up with! The bit about the tendrils is awesome, and it's neat to think these guys fill some kind of ecological niche in the swamp...

One of the best movies of the 1980's! It's a Jim Henson fairy tale that dominated my movie-watching habits as a child :)

Only the best film ever! lol... It's an AWESOME movie from 1986, with David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly... really a collaboration of some impossibly talented people including Jim Henson and George Lucus. Basically, it is about a girl who wishes her baby brother away, and to get him back she must make her way through a Labyrinth filled with goblins. Not everyone's heard of it, and it does tend to be more popular with women then men, but I've always adored it. It has a charm that only 80's movies seem to possess. Here's an original trailer for the film: [link]

Sounds pretty awesome. But the 80's hairstyles... oh god! Not the 80's hair styles! :noes:
Goblins are a weakness of mine. So i might check it out :D

I like "Tendril Jack"! Out of all the possible names, it has the most Labyrinth-ey, Brian-Froud-style-faerie sound to it. And great drawings! I especially like the close-up face view, with those giant gleaming orange eyes. They're almost pleading--they stare into my soul!!! :wow:

I'm glad to hear it! I am still not 100% sure about it, although I think it fits better than anything else I've thought up. :)
