carnival in nightmare land by Corpse-boy carnival in nightmare land by Corpse-boy
"The Dark Carnival Is In Town
"You Better Be Ready Just Follow The Parade Of Dancing Skeletons
Full Of Ghoulish Delights Around Every Corner
Don't Tell Your Parents You're Here They Will Soon Be Mourners" Welcome To The Lower Birth
The Greatest Show Unearthed
We Appear Without A Sound
The Darkest Show Around"

I kinda based this off the song "The Greatest show unearthed" by creature feature' which i can't get eoughe of :heart:

the pic it self is just a "what if" about Matt going to clockworths nightmare land, befor he enters he's greated by Doctor Goulpiper, a necomaner who use's a organ player to pipe out green ballown ghost,

now this took a chunck outta me, 9 staight hours today working on this, trying to make a digtal peace with the same magnitude of detale as my tradtion peaces.. the result, always out due myself and can never recreate it what the hand can make.

so with that, please no simple comments, like "OH GREAT JOB or COOL! that shit actaully makes me sick... i want feed back on this! it really matters to me!

You've really outdone yourself here Ray, this is marvelous! Matt's outfit is awesome, yet his facial expression is what really gets me. He looks like a poor kid who was just let into a candy store and was told by the owner that he could have anything he wanted. :XD:

Clockworth's tower in the background looks awesome, as well as the carousel and the Ferris wheel. The detail on the organ grinder is very well done, it looks so gritty and surreal, which considering where Matt is right now, it really hits home. The use of textures in this is great, it give the piece a nice, dirty feel.

Here's to a job well done, and a fun time to be had in that carnival! Go Matt go! :XD:

The Artist thought this was FAIR
10 out of 10 deviants thought this was fair.

there's a lot going on here but i think that you pulled it off very well. I especially like the colours you used- the smokey grey and black make the background ominous, but the red brings kind of a Pop of trippy, creepy energy. the textures of the smoke and fog are awesome- as well as the balloon ghosts. The details really bring out the carnival, and i love that your showing that the is a fun but dark aspect to it. also, it does have a bit of the feel that a Creature Feature song does. The carnival has been done a lot, but this is unique.
