Headless Horseman Portrait by Captain-Halfbeard Headless Horseman Portrait by Captain-Halfbeard
Here is another changing portrait I created for myself of the Headless Horseman. The original painting is "Napoleon at St. Bernard" by Jacques Louis-David. The Horseman painting was done by Sassydeb [link] . The frame comes from inspyretash-stock [link]

*Note: The downloadable file is quite larger than shown here. DeviantArt doesn't allow .gifs larger than 150 x 150.

That's a cool idea, but I haven't worked with car ideas much yet. I'll keep it in mind for future projects.

an Image where you see an old rusty plymouth fury, then a remodeled plymouth fury, and later a christine on fire.

also..i would very much like to use the same avatar as you, would you permit me? & if so how'd you do it?

Captain-Halfbeard Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Sure. The Headless Horseman is everyone's right to enjoy. I made the avatar from a picture from Disney's Sleepy Hollow cartoon using Gimp. It's just a small image of 50 x 50 pixels.

Did you know that in the early development times of the Haunted Mansion, it was planned to be a Ichabod Crane & Headless Horseman ride? That would have been cool!

Do you mean "how do you do it?" I made both pictures as separate images, then made an animated .gif file out of them and used a blending plug in to meld them together.

This one's cool, reminds me of those "painting" at Disney's haunted mansion, I've always liked that kind of effect.

Thanks! I really wish they had worked the Headless Horseman into The Haunted Mansion as was the original idea..

Then for story purposes, the now-deceased Icabod Crane would've had to have moved to the Mansion to, since the headless Hessian was chasing him in the classic Irving story.

He was supposed to be part of it, as the Haunted Mansion was to be a Sleepy Hollow ride. But, that was quickly abandoned as Walt had other ideas for the creepy ride.

Sounds awesome. I like the Mansion either way, though.
