This is My Circus by MagpieFreak This is My Circus by MagpieFreak
Meet the devastatingly charismatic ringmaster who's here to tease your mind with unearthly delights and curiosities in his pandemonian circus (DISCLAIMER: User may need an acquired taste). And nope this is not my silver-tongued Lucifer XD This is a slippery ringmeister of the one and only circus that fleets from imagination to imagination leaving cognitive chaos and mental mess in its wake! Meet Oliver Alptraum, the commander of the Big Top, who's charms will undoubtedly blow your mind :> He gives ... quite a different performance XD

Heheh :> Olly belongs to Endling who is unquestionably one of my biggest inspirations when it comes to .. being creative :B so many thanks to him :> Yay!

You might want to check out www.WorldofCircus.com/Contests before Nov 14th this would fit in it well in Cirque Inspired Art category.

I discovered this. At first I was like : 'Damn, that's pretty good !' The pose is really great I think, like very dynamic, everything is ordered and still a bit messy, and the colors are very appropriated.
Then I looked a little bit more in detail and was amazed by the profusion of details, which adds a lot to the style. The Now now now on the big clock, the Don't let Jack out on the box... I love everything about this picture. It is what I would call greatness. And my new wallpaper. Did I mention it is stirring something in my heart? I want to go to that show so very bad.

XD Awww it's great that you noticed the details :D It was really fun figuring out how the background would turn out XD I hadn't drawn much actual lineart on paper, so most of this, the eyes, the living sand, the shadows, the clock, the thises, the thats, ended up being improvised and allowed me an opportunity to give it some fresh new thinking over :> Guess it helped to keep the piece alive XD it would be a hell of a circus to be in XD I'm really not sure if I'd like to be there, haha XD

But thank you <3  It was a joy to make, and it's a joy to know that you like it :dance:

Thank you for replying, not everyone here does it!

I don't think I'd ever be able to create an entire piece of art like this one, I'm too lazy. Filling my sketchbooks already takes a lot of time ._.

Ehhh I'm slow at drawing >_> it gets embarrassing XD;  This piece took a long time, but in the end it was totally worth it, so I suppose in a way, time doesn't always matter. You don't have to do it all in one sitting at least :> Just slowly work on it now and then, if you need to :>
