The Unhappy Clown, Mats Holmberg (2D)



Title: The Unhappy Clown
Name: Mats Holmberg
Country: Sweden
Software: Photoshop

I ´was given the task of making a pic of a clown so i thought I'd depict their true nature - their EVIL nature!
We've all heard about the clowns who are "laughing on the outside, but crying inside"? Well this clown is more like... screaming inside.

Crits are very welcome.

I might aswell point out that I chose to paint the machete as if it was cleaned after the... massacre. I did that so it'd stand out more from the background to make it more obvious what's just taken place.

Enjoy!

ok that's a REALLY sad clown, lol. i didn't expect to see the blood bath when i was scrolling down, that made me laugh.

Thanks for the kind words. I will keep it up!

I thought I might post a close up aswell, so you can see the brushwork upclose. I usually paint so I can see the whole pic at once, and only zoom in to fix parts of certain need of detailing, like the face.

Mmm, nice. I agree with the arlier comment about the wet look of the bloody surroundings, s'good touch. The one thing I'd say is that given this clown's bloodied up the the elbow, it feels odd that the blade in his left hand that I assume was use to hack up the poor souls is almost completely clean and shiney.

Is that explanation enough?

*Facepalm* Yes, actually, that would be a very good explanation. Pardon me, must pay more attention to the description.

Looks like Rembrandt having a bad day...You did an excellent job of portraying an inner battle--that poor clown looks so resigned. Standing at attention, listening to the voices in his head? Perhaps a little more modelling on the face to match the delicacy of the shirt and arm would make this more apparent. I love the seamed/doughy look, but his face gets a little bit lost compared to that amazing gore and the hard edges of his knife.
Very cool
