* THE LAST LAUGH *

"Any final words?"
"Nha... stick a fork in me, I'm done!"

Went with something a little more unsettling and thought provoking as opposed to outright gore/horror...although I do have a few of those as WIPs ;)


All in PS.

Note: The Painting in the BG is a WIP of mine titled "The conquest of light"

Normally gore, and violence and all of that stuff doesn't bother me but usually when I look at stuff that goes out of the box (compliment) I get creeped out, kind of like how in the Hannibal lector series he feeds the guy his own brain WTF!? And this kind of gives me the same effect, I mean could you imagine trying to wiggle your fingers and all you get is a clack clack from your now hoof....*shudders* creepy. Great work and the whole image is great quality o_o you have accomplished my shiver ._.

Hiya. Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. Feedback like yours is always highly appreciated as I love to hear what other folk pull from work I've done. And yeah that scene in Hannibal is pretty creepy ;)

No problem :P I couldn't not leave a comment, it's really cool. I also think its cool that you get to hear people's stories too :meow:. And yeah, that was the first Hannibal Lector movie I had ever seen so that was a little weird for me. Have you ever seen the video in halo ce anniversary where you can see what happened to captain keys? I was playing at night alone and on legendary so that was a bit of a big no no, lol I remember the ac was on and the wind hit my leg and I thought it was the flood so I grabbed a baseball bat and almost cracked myself with it XD!

I'm not sure what thoughts this is supposed to provoke, but you definitely pulled off the unsettling angle

Not that I'm complaining, mind

thanks for the feedback :) All comments welcome.

I remember looking at a Dali print and after awhile I turned to my friend and said I don't get it. She said yeah maybe not yet, but you have been staring at it for 15 min :) Changed the way I thought about art and art appreciation.
Everything is open to your own interpretation so I think the best an artist can hope for is that a piece speaks to viewer in some little way, positive or negative.

I've long since accepted the fact that just because I'm an artist does not mean I'm required to understand art (well I have to understand at least some art, but you know what I mean)

Creepy as all get out. Have you read any hellboy comics? There is one with a monkey using a gun.

Ty for the feedback & visit :D
Not read any of the comics although I do love Mike Mignola's style. Should see if there is a Graphic Novel version around...

Tons at the library. For the most part they are just hilarious. I used to think the movie was good, but I realised Ron Pearlman is a fool. He made a mockery of Hellboy. That is just my opinion.

Ahh cool comment :D thanks. As a kid I had posters of Dali's work on my walls. Stuff always freaked me out but I could not stop looking at it. A master of painted dreams.

You're most welcome :D Yeah, Dali is a window into a very strange mindscape - those elephants from The Temptation of St. Anthony still lumber after me in my stranger dreams!

The symbolism in your piece is very thought provoking and that, combined with your realistic execution, makes it more subtle and disturbing than a more straight-forward horror piece. :)
