The Chocolate Factory Gets Creepier!


After more than a month off from design team creations, I get to jump back in with both feet over at The Burtonesque Dolls featuring a project inspired by one of my favorite Tim Burton movies.... Charlie and The Chocolate Factory!!!  There is NO denying that Tim Burton's Charlie and The Chocolate Factory is a creepy version of the original film (that's why I love it), but the factory is about to get a little creepier as Strange Skin takes over.  Strange Skin is our sponsor for this challenge!

This time you're challenged to take your inspiration from Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, but Monster-ize it! Maybe a new chocolate can be made? Or use colors inspired by the movie and apply it to a Gruesome image making it fun, funky and all Burton!  The winner of this challenge will get to pick TWO digis from the Strange Skin online store.  Click HERE to enter and to see how the rest of The Dolls used these uber-fun monsterific Strange Skin images in this challenge.

So, I used the Just Bitten image.  I had a whole story in my head of how this young girl gets a golden ticket and heads to the factory only to get bitten by a rabid vampire oompa loompa.  Since they all look identical, Wonka is surprised that he missed the blood-lust, pale skin and transformations into flying creatures that should have made the culprit stand out among the rest.  Even more so, Wonka contemplates the actual size of a vampire demographic that would LOVE a blood-flavored Everlasting Gob Stopper.  He briefly ponders the resources required to expand the new flavor only to scrap it and move on while the rest of the oompa loompas sing about a girl who should know better than to be undead. 

Anywhooooo.... that seemed like something that would require much more polka dot paper than I had on hand, so I shortened the whole thing to a sentiment that reads, "Realizing something horrific had occurred at the factory the night before, Wonka scrapped the blood-flavored Everlasting Gob Stoppers."  Here's a close up of the vampire girl... she was REALLY fun to color!!!


Have fun with this challenge you guys.... I sure did!
