Beetlejuice Group Shot by Dext Beetlejuice Group Shot by Dext
A big group shot of Beetlejuice characters I've been working on for a couple of weeks... some things got in the way of finishing it.. but it's finally done!

It may be a little known thing... perhaps... but I'm actually a big fan of Beetlejuice, in particular the animated series. I've loved it since I was little and recently I watched some of the episodes again. The cartoon is pretty much as old as me, which is crazy!

My favourite character is Beetlejuice, of course... but I have a soft spot for Charles and Jacques too... and an urge to draw them led to this big group shot! I thought I'd uploaded my other Beetlejuice related pictures but... apparently not! Oops! Oh well, they're not as accurate as this one anyway. XD

Style imitation is something I haven't done in a while... I used to do it all the time but it's time consuming, taxing and sometimes even stressful! But I love the style of the Beetlejuice cartoon so much... it would feel kinda wrong to draw them any other way! No shading this time to keep with the style. =)

- From left to right; Claire, Bertha, Prudence, Charles, Delia, Beetlejuice, Lydia, Percy, Monster Across the Street, Prince Vince, Jacques, Ginger and Poopsie

Beetlejuice belongs to Tim Burton.

When watching the Beetlejuice cartoon, I thought Bertha was played by the same person who played May Kanker from "Ed, Edd n Eddy". I ended up finding out that it wasn't true. I guess it was my ears playing tricks on me. Although they weren't fooling me with Claire, I knew it was Tara Strong the moment I heard her voice.

The rest of the characters are great too. The Monster Across the Street always reminded me of Gossamer from "Looney Tunes" with Yosemite Sam's personality and Prince Vince kind of looks like Tim Burton in my opinion.

Anyways, great job you really showed a lot of hard work and dedication.

Hahaha, I can hear in my head what you mean there on Bertha and May! And yes on The Monster Across the Street and Gossamer and Yosemite Sam. XD Prince Vince I'm certain is based on a recurring character for Tim Burton? I think he's had multiple Vince/Vincents in his movies and works if I remember right. =) I looked into it a few years back because I was fascinated by it, I love when artists/creators/directors put... pretty much cameos of their own characters in their other works. =)

Thank-you! =D I'm glad you liked this, thank-you for the lovely comment too!

And to answer your question, probably not. =( Besides that taking a long time, I have to be honest and say that I don't know all of his different personalities! XD; Nor if there are clear references of them... hmm...

What the heck happened to the Maitlands, by the way? They sort of disappeared in the transition between movie and cartoon.
