Satan's Jester, Jose Pardo (2D)



Title: Satan's Jester
Name: Jose Pardo
Country: USA
Software: Photoshop

Here is my "Spectacular" entry, any observations and crits are welcome. Also here is my final "story":
It was difficult for me to wrap my mind around the theme of this challenge. After all, we have seen so many Spectacular things both terrible and wonderful, in real life and in the entertainment industry.
I tried to think of the most spectacular thing I ever saw. A lot of things went through my mind, from the births of my children, to September 11th, to some of my favorite epic movies. But I wanted to do something different. For some reason, in the midst of a sleepless night "The Cat in the Hat" book scene where he is bouncing on the ball, balancing all the objects, came to my mind. (I really dont know why I have not read Dr Seuss to my children in years) But I had to take it to a Fantasy/SciFi environment for my own enjoyment. I must have been in a fairly dark mood because the title Satan's Jester came to mind immediately.
I figured he has seen so much... what would it take to impress him. Since I certainly dont know, I drew the most insane act of human acrobatics that I could muster, then drew Satan almost completely unimpressed.
So is it Spectacular? I dont really know. I do hope that the judges will be a little more impressed than the audience in my image.
Many thanks again to all who visited and posted!

Poor Jokester

Congrats on finishing the challenge Jose. Nicely finished piece here. Well composed too. A few things i would have worked on more would be the background and the main character. The background could use some more depth by perhaps place the characters in a cavernouse surrounding. The head on the main character looks just a little bit large for that skewed perspective you have going here. I'm enjoying the dynamics you've managed to portray as well. Nice work.

Thanks to all!

Rares- I didnt want to make hell into a cave, I wanted it mostly flames, probably could have given it more depth anyway. As for his head, you might be right, unless he's a fat head! ; ) The perspective and anatomy were difficult for me on this one. Thanks for your comments!

Good Luck to all in the judging!

I feel a bit foolish: I completely missed this one for the spectacular challenge. Oops...

Well, here goes my belated comments: It definitely is a spectacular concept. I love the dynamic feel you have going. I particularly like the light bloom on the blade. Very nice. The jester is beautifully detailed. The colours are clean and great.

Well done!

Waheed- Thanks Sir, I am a big fan of your painterly style!

Lync- Thanks! I am always amazed at the gems that I find in the challenge after it is over, yours for example is extremely well rendered, fabulous textures, and very worthy of the theme!

OK I think that covers everyone! Thanks again to all for stoping by!
