Enjoy the freak show :)

Hello Linda)
Thats amazing work as always! your concepts always are great!
"Questions, questions. Many you asked. About the future and some of the past."

That's some strange seaweeds growing on the slimy floor! What are those things?

I think it will benefit the whole image better if you depict the humans more clearly. They could be squashed in their glass cells in awkward pose, without an inch of room to move, especially the fat one. She could have this bulging-eyed scared expression on her face. Perhaps she could have some feeding tubes running down her mouth like a sick feeding show.

The overall colours are nice!

Thank you Greatto

Thank you so much Jeromoo, excellent suggestions, I will admit though I am awful at painting humans so that is why they are so cartoony looking. I thought about adding an icecream cone in her hand, but I really like the feeding tube idea. That could get messy and goopy ha ha. Those things on the floor are actually little aliens sliming around, if you look closely they have eyeballs and sucker feet for sliding around.

Hi Linda! I love those little squid arm creature things! The whole image is very fun indeed and I am starting to wonder wether I should have done a more fun piece myself haha. The aliens look fantastic. I agree that the humans could be a bit more visible but I totally understand where you are coming from.

very good indeed

Thank you Andy ... let's see here I have a few more days, maybe I can try to work on that fat lady at least.

Work In Progress: FatLadyWIP

I've got some extra time so trying to get my fat lady to look at least somewhat finished. I think I have her workable now. Lassoed a bunch of stuff and moved it around a bit, roughed in a new hand and a feeding tube as per Jeromes suggestion.

Still working on it a bit, I am really hoping the fat lady is improved from the earlier version. I struggle so much with people. I still have some time so, will work on my aliens a bit more.

Work In Progress: FatLadyWIP1

I am still plugging away at my fat lady, I could really use some crits or advice if anyone has any to offer. I know her hand is off and I am going to attempt to fix that next. I am having some problems with the lower belly fat too.

Hey Linda,

Dunno how much advice I can give you except it gets better the more you work on it.
Furs looking nice I personally love freak shows. Her hand looks great I love the finger.
But you can improve on it if you want. I love the lower belly fat too.
But yeh I suppose it could look more like belly fat..

Very funny hope you keep at it 'till it's beautifully detailed.

Nice one
