The Fool



Finally. I guess there were some people what waited for this picture long enough now :nod:

Continuing Tarot Card serie.
"00: The Fool" or many of us know him better as the Joker.

The Fool is the character that simbolize something as base of human, human without knowing, just nature, but my Joker is something that is inhuman, well beyond it. Someone who doesn't even know what it is "to be human". Tarot cards is like a fool's journey through life, to become true human. Well we will see what comes next in other cards ;) (I'll tell you this story little by little...)

Ussualy fool's card has elements like flower in a hand or sun in the background. I wanted to leave those elements, only interpret them in different way. A flower doesn't really have any meaning to the fool, he tore half of her petals. The sun in the background gives me sweet candy like feeling that don't even fit with macabre face of the Inhuman. Why? Well, this makes this picture sureal in someway :mwahaha:, I would apreciate if viewers would interpret a bit more on this subject ;p

This artwork is very impressive. The jester looks like what Pennywise the clown from Stephen King's book IT would look like if he didn't suck at life and at luring children to their doom. Your coloring is very good as well. His expression is fantastic, it's almost as if he is mocking the viewer. The flower is well drawn, and the jester's hair things are oddly enough colored to stand out and not be boring. IF this were an actual painting, I would probably buy it, as these kind of pictures attract my interest. Overall, you did a fantastic job with this.
