The Hapless Prince by ~meluseena is simply astonishing, the surreal touch, the colors, the concept just catch your eyes. You can easily get stuck at this! ( Suggested by karemelancholia and Featured by kuschelirmel )

This is remarkable! I never would have imagined such a thing could be made ;3;

I don't know how you put this together, but it's gorgeous nonetheless...his face is full of dismay at his situation---it definitely puts me into mind of a fractured fairytale <3

This is the absolute definition of surreal; I see the picture, it should look normal, and yet something is off and this makes it slightly disturbing. Brilliant job.

When I saw this I automatically thought of my favorite book, because it has such a similar feeling, not to mention the prince reminds me of the one in the book, and there's the obsession of a broken merry-go-round horse. Tithe by Holly Black, to be specific.
Beautiful work. :)
