The Impossible Cuckoo Clock

I really love cuckoo clocks. I think they're brilliant, so I made one of my own. If this were a real clock I'm 99% sure it would weigh too much to be mounted on a wall in any normal fashion.

Most of the motifs and designs were based off of real cuckoo clocks, as were the flowers. (I looked up a lot of Dutch motifs because they are really pretty and intricate)

To the right I've included some detail shots, but there were a lot of them. I'm glad I did this picture because I found a cooler way to do fur/hair.

There are some goofy characters hanging about, including a clockwork ghost, an acorn pendulum monster thing, a sasquatch, and some animals just enjoying the scenery.

And if you are wondering where the water for the waterfall/wheel is coming from....

Keep wondering, because I really have no idea.

Tools: Photoshop Cs2 and mouse.

Inspiration: Cuckoo Clocks, a little bit of Crowded Teeth, dutch motif, cool hipster stuff that I cannot afford but want.

There's a cuckoo clock in my favourite café. People spending time there use the place like their second living room, and that cuckoo clock hasn't harmed atmosphere (maybe on the contrary?). Little distraction is rather nice. This cuckoo clock might be a big distraction, but it's so adorable it could grow on people. Would be interesting to hear what it would sound like. I wouldn't mind sound of the waterfall.

The owner is not the one using it on Photoshop, Most of my Artwork were used on GIMP with a touchpad (while the older artwork was used on MS Paint) for nearly seven years, but now I just transitioned to Inkscape (Vector) for characters, props, and actions while I continued to use GIMP for background illustrations, unused props, characters and Audiences.

I keep meaning to comment on this and keep forgetting. UNTIL NOW. But I love this. The amount of detail is amazing. I love pictures where you discover things the more you look at it. I also love that you have the details on the side. It makes it look like a cool poster. My favorites are the clock and the little owl on top.
