This really reminds me of the Smashing Pumpkins music video, "Tonight, Tonight." It's extremely stylized and extremely unique. This is the stuff I long for on this website.

the sky is beautiful and I love the overall "cut and paste" feeling with everything that suits this piece well. Amazing.

I see this and think of the Smashing Pumpkins.

I love the coloration...and how busy it is, yet maintaining clarity.

Maybe I should be amazed by this piece but I am not..

Its well done , the tones, and everything fits here, I dont find it quite original (meaning that I dont see it as being 100% of your imagination, and dont get offended), its seems like an image taken from a film by Alejandro Jodorowsky, to name a few "Saint blood" ,"The Holy mountain"...

I like this piece if it were meant to be a tribute to his movies, I will totally be amazed, . but maybe the reference is not the same..

The balloons are fantastic. I've no idea where you found the big top, but it's excellent. I love old circus and sideshow lore and images, so I'm really looking forward to seeing what else you come up with here. Great stuff!

Your work is amazing, especially because it is sooooooo different than anything else that I see on this site. You definitely have your own style, and that is admirable. Your pieces scream of your confidence. That is admirable.

These last couple of extraordinary manipulations of yours remind me of long lost days of circus shows as a child, and it reminds me of spooky nightmares I used to have after going to the circus.
Something about it has terrified me and it still terrifies me until this very day, I don't think I will ever let my children go to a circus :faint: it's just too traumatic around here :aww:
You do such a wonderful work with applying and blending all of the pictures together into one scene.
It looks ever so real and convincing, and I'm in love with the golden tones this picture has.
The elephants are superb and the human figures are as well :aww:
I just love it when you manip Aunia, you do it better than anyone else I know :hug:

:heart: Breath taking work once again, dear.
Don't ever stop sharing such glorious pieces with us, please :butterflytwo: :cuddle:

'Tis cool... The hat on the woman looks a bit fake. This is surreal, to be sure, but the other one had a quality of... I don't know... Cuteness.

hey nice job! :D i like it.....the composition is very nice....yay! black balloons :D now that looks awesome lol :D

ok the details:
-The hat.....a little off don't you think?, i mean it could be tilted a bit, but well....i hope you understand what i mean...
-the crow-guy on top of the elephant stones, well the shadows need some work, but well i guess being a manip and all, well....whatever....

The rest is great, i like the banners! the "sideshow" one is very cool i like the BG of it and the designs :D.....the sky looks awesome and lighting i guess was no problem here, except for some shadows.....nice work :D hope to see more soon :D

This one is one of the most interesting ones you have done to date. I think the direction you are going in is wonderful and if I never see another tarot card again it would not matter, as this evolution in your work is very deep and intreging. I look forward to seeing more of this. There is a lot of depth to what your doing =)

I was just here looking to see if you had posted anything when this popped up in my messages. Fuckin awesome work hon.

I love how you left the woman on the left with only half a body (seen a movie once about a boy like that). Crowman, very unique and of course a nicely added touch. All the way down to the banners and ad. The black balloons add that dark touch. The sepia tone for this is just amazing. You keep that antique look to it. Very interesting concept of using the elephants as a blended mount of rocks for them to stand on. Cracks giving one the impression they have been around a long time. And of course the ringmistress, just gorgeous. Yet, another Instant :+favlove:

Sideshow freaks gawd how I miss them :( The last time I got to see real side show freaks was about 6 years ago. Got to see a guy who could sew his lips and eyes shut heh.
