This is obviously a different take on the SpongeBob character, but it looks nice! The face is drawn well and the color palette is a little dull but it still looks good. You put the shadows in the right places as well.

this is great I love it

This is the funniest thing I've seen all day! I love how well the creepiness of "The Shining" goes with the child-friendliness of "SpongeBob SquarePants". Overall a great thing for me to see on my 17th. Great job! XD

Pretty good stuff

OK so this was neat and cool the whole The Shining refreance was another cool idea, the mix of spongebob and the shinning was nice of an idea, you should do more of these movie cross-overs it was pretty good i thought, so good job there indeed, the likeness too jack was uncanny too :) so another good idea there, the whole piece was pretty good i thought, maybe a bigger backround area too show more of the door and all would have been a plus, other then that this was cool. anyways nice job here it was good stuff.

So while this was pretty good i thought, maybe a larger canvas in the backround too show more of the backround, also would allow more room for detail there aswell.


I like this art piece because it's so cool to see a style to authentic to that of "The Shining". Spongebob just looks so deranged because of how realistic he is drawn. He has the facial hair (I doubt sponges have hair) and a long nose. Well, the nose is more like his cartoon appearance, but it still looks really strange. Even the pores and holes in his body are well pronounced. His cheeks appear to be sagging near the door.

I just feel as though this would have been perfect if he was holding an actual weapon. The shading and coloring is still done well and emphasizes the madness in his mind. I also liked how you worked hard to put in a background with different shades. The door looks pretty different on the opposite sides. The teeth look sinister as well.

Chieftx responds:

glad you like it, I only wanted to mimic the famous video still that captures the madness of jack nicolson. thats whey i did not bother with details like hands or weapons.

fun fact: the cells of real sponges are capable of reassembling after being pulverized.
