Send in the Clowns by Selfish-Eden Send in the Clowns by Selfish-Eden
I was thinking about how vampires frighten a lot of people, but they don't scare me. With that in mind, I decided to use the same background stock and a similar pose I used for my Armand dev, only this time I made it with something that frightens me: a clown/mime!

When I was a kid, my parents bought me a clown piñata from this restaurant. *shudders* Clowns and dolls, yuck. China dolls are pretty, but they're still effing creepy.

Eeep! I would have set that thing on fire! I was never one to play with dolls. I was a weird girl. I never wanted the little cutesy toys in Happy Meals. I wanted the Transformers and Lego sets.

Hell yes. I had a dragon too, when I was a wee lad. It took me six months to stop being scared of the thing, but one day I started playing with it, and now well...I collect them. There are several toys from my childhood that friends had that I wanted so bad. Still do, to some extent.

I've always loved dragons and snakes. I have a collection of dragons, a lizard, and a ton of snake jewelry.

I thought about getting a dragon tattoo or two, but time and money being what they are... Also, they tend to frown upon tats in the white collar world. So for now I'll just settle with my collection. It's pretty awesome.

I have a couple of tattoos on my ankle, but I can always cover them up with pants or boots. There are ways around the white collar fashion rules. :D

This is beautiful. Im planning on reading the books soon. I have seen the movies, and now I want to read them. I really think this says "sad." He looks as if he cant understand something. I love it.

You...made something with a clown? You??? She looks depressed and in need of another eyebrow. It's very moody. Do you ever make happy art?

Anywho. I like it.

@Caustic: The clown is in a castle simply because A) It's great stock and B) I wanted it to have the same arrangement as my Armand dev because I'm exchanging something that scares most people with something that scares *me.* Thanks! :hug:

@Shd: Thank you! I'm glad you find it creepy, too. :D

@Lena: Thanks! I was thinking about the wings in that context because clowns are just... ugh. I blame it on Stephen King for writing IT. Even sad clowns are scary clowns.

@Voodoo: Hehehehe, my sister Kate is petrified of monkeys, too. She saw the monkey and shuddered. Thanks for the feedback!

Dear god, is it holding a monkey? NOT COOL. I'm glad that you put the boned wings on it because the face is actually... dare I say, appealing? I dunno, the face could fool me into thinking this clown isn't quite so bad, but the atmosphere and the monkey are sealing the deal for me. Creepy ass clown!

This is an everlasting symbol of childish horror. Wings are a great detail to expose the fakeness of the clown's friendly intentions. Very smart. :clap: And look at this creature, it's pretending to be helpless and sad. :paranoid: Liar.

Okay, I'll have to agree with you. That clown is particularly creepy, especially set in those surroundings. Great job!
