Demonic Circus by vinegar Demonic Circus by vinegar
Another art challenge by :icondaekazu:, :iconteanah:, :iconvinegar: and :iconwashuuchan:
For each challenge we interchangeably give ourselves an idea or topic to illustrate and a short, specified time to execute it in whatever shape or form... of course, without knowing what the others are going to come up with.

This week's topic is *vinegar's idea: Demonic Circus. Got from a video game name generator, but still it sounds cool, right?


Okay, I got kind of carried away with it. Had so much fun with the faces that when I finished them I needed to make all the rest more realistic than I intended to. Ah well. One day I'll learn ;)

The twins were inspired by the twins from The Shining, and I used some random still as a reference for their hands. Just the hands though. Clown's hands are referenced on my own. Her face not refernced which is perhaps why her smile is so weird. I learned painting teeth hurts. Other than that, just too much time in Photoshop and Painter ;)

I have to say it's first thing I painted that I'm quite fond of since a long time. Hope you'll like it too!

Close ups on my blog. I'm not sure if I'm finished with it, but I'll leave it like that for now.
