ALL HALLOW'S EVE by Ricky-Roo302 ALL HALLOW'S EVE by Ricky-Roo302
As huge a fan as I am of Tim Burton's 2000 retelling of the Sleepy Hollow Legend, I still have a warm place in my heart for Washington Irving's little fable of the meek little schoolteacher who is tormented by a jealous rival.......

....and so to all of my DeviantArt friends and colleagues, I wish you a HAPPY HALLOWEEN 2007!!!!!!

This is awesome, I know you mentioned that this was inspired by the Tim Burton film and the story, but when I look at this, I think of the Disney version Ichabod which I also love, not to mention Brom Bones' song that scared Ichabod about our favorite headless murderer, and I know the whole song by heart! This pic rocks, love your use of color, gives it more of an eerish glow. :headbang:

I love all versions of this classic tale and no wonder that since (a)It's my favorite Halloween story, (b)I have a personality akin to Icabod's, except for the sort-of snobbish behavior (i.e. I am meek and knowledgeable, yet easily frightened).
