Labyrinth Guide - The Worm by Chaotica-I Labyrinth Guide - The Worm by Chaotica-I
Page for my "Practical Visitor's Guide to the Labyrinth"
Painted in Photoshop CS5, using the film as reference.
About 5 hours of work.
The Labyrinth and it's Characters are Jim Henson

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!!!


Another page for my new project! These have been coming together so quickly, and they've been a lot of fun. Probably start a new one immediately... just gotta decide what I'd like to do next. Perhaps the wise man and his hat, or the eye lichen, or alph/ralph/tim/jim... so many to choose from! :XD:
The worm was always one of my favourite characters! I think I did a better job painting him this time than the last time...

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.

Feedback?
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!

:star:Vote in my Poll!:star:
Got a poll going here: [link]
Please vote for the ideas that you would like to see next.
Please comment with any additional ideas! Looking for LOTS of ideas here, enough for a good guide book :XD:

"moved by a political agenda."

Ah, yes. I do seem to recall the Great Worm Rebellion of '87. (Something to do with a "tea tax" I believe.)

I LOVED the worm! Still do for that matter, although Jareth has become my favourite character over time. :)
Thank you! :D

Of course I love Jareth too, but I like Worm's character. Everything from his design to his cute little accent seems perfectly situated.

Jim Henson and his entire team were genius. I honestly wouldn't change a single character. I've been disappointed by more recent "Jim Henson Studios" work, seems like the soul has been cut out :(

I really can't say I've ever kept my eyes out for his work, but now I find myself looking and going "Oh, Jim Henson, Yay!" ...I have an art teacher that if he grew his beard out just a little more could pass for his twin. I told him that's who he should have been for Halloween.

So cute! Although I feel compelled to point out that worms aren't insects, they're invertebrates.

Thanks! I actually considered mentioning that the "worm" looks to be a caterpillar more properly (which is an insect lol). I honestly don't think that worm is a correct name, but he's always been known as such, and who was I to deny him that dubious honour? Plus, I didn't really want to invent a butterfly to go along with him :lmao:

The fur tufts definitely make it look like a caterpillar, but then it doesn't have any legs, which says worm... hmm. I dunno.
