Another art challenge by :icondaekazu:, :iconmidnighttea7:, :iconvinegar: and :iconshuu-washuu:
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.

Love your artwork! I run a weekly YouTube Show "Danica Raven's BiteSize Horror" where the host reads short horror stories sent in by the audience and at the end of each episode we showcase Horror artwork. Would love to feature some of your artwork on the show (with credit and links to your websites ect). If you are interested drop me a message and you can check out our channel on youtube for context on what we do. Keep up the incredible work!!

They're so cute, yet so creepy all at once!!:aww:
They remind me of two characters of mine who are twins (only one of them is really scary, though). ;p

All three characters look just like someone named Kristen, in all her different looks. The resemblance is amazing! You have matched her character to a T as well, excellent work, got to love it! Seriously wicked artistry! :D

who's Kristen?

I have a very interesting job, I study people, their looks, lifestyles, habits, etc. When I look at different art it always amazes me how much closeness there is to certain people even when the artist may not know them personally. Like we are all connected on a higher level somehow. Who she is is not of great importance but this so nails it when it comes to her, I'm sure many would agree. Again, wickedly beautiful! You are very talented :)
