The Juggler by Yuni The Juggler by Yuni
"You've been exceptionally supple and agile since childhood.
However, turning somersaults and falling on your head has
left its mark."


Just thought it wouldn't hurt to have a version with one
tightrope less. The original honeybee is now called
"The Juggler II" :3

The Juggler II by Yuni

Anyway, it's a little something I put together after playing
Kingdom Come Deliverance. Alas after all these years I still
feel like an unskilled teenager when it comes to drawing
backgrounds, so I just took a screenshot from the game.

His face is so cute and innocent. Peppered with freckles and that distracted joyish glee.
Great work on the setting as well. The houses look smashing! The way the shadows cast, ebb over the uneven surface of straw. The brilliant rays of sun light. This is just such a happy affair. The weight on the rope and how it bends between points is also well executed. I like both versions of this pic.

LOL just read the description screenshot background! :-p my critique is in vain. Dramatic faint. ;-)

I love Kingdom Come Deliverance. And have been doing an unpublished medieval circus project for about a year now, so more power to the theme! Love the colours!

Thanks! That's quite unexpected that you know the game! I must say the game is super inspirational, definitely something I dreamed of to have. The devs did such a great job at detailing the medieval village that I was already able to see my own medieval village, Foldale, in a new light and I plan to try making a map of it in the KCD style.

:D My first love has always been history, and married with contortion you get a potent child: historical contortion! :D Yeah I used to do medieval reenactments in Europe (Germany/Poland) and now do black powder in Canada/US where I currently am, and they're surprisingly good sources for entertainment. In Europe there are a lot of relatively unknown performers depicting period acrobats (Not something like a farby bellydancer or fire-breather at a renaissance fair) and in the US there's a performing duo called "A Clockwork Clown" which depicts a variety/contortion/juggling/magic act of the time of the Georgian regency and Revolutionary war. Hidden treasures, hidden treasures. *Does Henry's sassy finger wag from the game* Dan Vavra did a superb job on a lot of the game including singing that tavern song you hear called "Poverty and Famine." We need more game devs like them.

It's always fun to find the hidden gems :D And thanks for mentioning Dan Vavra as I don't know much about the developers aside from quite enjoying the game world itself. It was interesting to learn that it's made by, let's say, quite a small studio.

As an artist who'd never had any publisher, I can relate to indie projects and it's great that people can have the creative freedom to do what they want, instead of everybody in the world being some form of corporate slaves making another crap for Mickey Mousse or whatever... Otherwise we'd never enjoy these fun and marginal things, we'd never know better and this planet wouldn't be worth the effort living on it, I think.

I think contortion was also born as an indie thing, bending in half backwards is definitely not something they come up during an academic dance in Louvre or during a brainstorm session of some producers on the telly. It was born because it was fun and creative and people just wanted to practice something like this.

So I think it's great for an artist to be independent... well, maybe not to my level because my level of independance is way too over the top and it ends up lacking motivation to actually draw because I literally don't need anything from anyone, so natural laziness takes over more often. So maybe a little bit less independance is good, with some monetary motivation at least :)

You know, that a book of most, if not all, of your wonderful drawings here on Deviant Art I believe would sell very nicely.  And adding the "story" behind some of your works, as you have already done, would just add to the interest of your book!

Have to say that I for one very much appreciate the detail you put into clothes.  It may be an odd thing to notice but all the creases, folds, and bulges tell the story that words just can't.  Seriously, you do 'scantily clad' better than anyone !!!!

I love this version of the picture. Sometimes the tiny waists freak me out, but I still enjoy the art, but I do prefer this one over the original you posted. Thank you for posting this version as well. ^^

Well the tiny waist looks much more like a Yuni art, but THIS is actually THE original I wanted to draw, I added the tiny waist only because I felt it looked too plain for my gallery where I usually try to add some weird element to every picture. But sometimes it's fun to see what a picture would look like if a regular artist drew it :3

Oh of course, tiny waist is Yuni. ^^ I know your gallery is full of different weird elements and I enjoy that. I also enjoy seeing you do something out of your norm though too. I like it all.

I think trying to push things out of the norm is stereotypical behavior.
