    You're off to a really good start tokotewhero! Excited to see what you come up with to make him more "underworld" And YES, he definitely needs a bigger mustache!

    I love evil clowns so I'll probably go in that direction.

    I've decided to go with a Vampire Illusionist. She obviously needs to kill to survive and the Cirque allows her to move from place to place with ease.

    I love this - and yes, the bigger the moustache the better. Just imagine it fluttering in the wind as he glides through the air...

    Nicely thought out.

    I'm gonna go for something a little less subtle. More of an EC horror comics or Killer Klowns from Outer Space cartoony type of thing.

    UPDATE: I've deleted the sketch because I'm completely re-thinking my entry.

    When I saw the theme I immediately thought about the movie "cirque du freak the vampire's assistant" if you need some inspiration watch that one it's nice.

    First off, gratz to the new mods, i'm confident you'll both do a great job

    Cool topic, as usual, I imagine there will be lots of different and original designs for this one.
    Ive been browsing the net for abit of inspiration and to get a few ideas flowing and figured I'd share a few pics I collected on my travels.
    Its going to be a challenge to portay a circus character who lives a seperate life outside his/her act. I'm liking the idea of the circus freak, not sure on his day to day life though yet...

    Good luck all, looking forward to seeing what gets produced!

    Hello, I've been lurking in the CHOW threads for weeks and I think I'll dive into this one due to my fascination with Cirque du Solei. *holds nose and prepares to jump in the deep end!*

    logistic puppet, the little pink haired figurine you posted, I pointed the creator out to Emilie Autumn and the bloddy crumpets and she got so inspired she made that figurine. Awesome to see it in here. //random

    Hey, I'm new to the forum and this is my first CHOW attempt. It's a very cool idea and Im working on an idea of a strongman gone evil. When you're evil and your too big for anyone to stop you or say anything...thats a wicked combo. I'm a big fan of turn of the century tattooing so I plan to ink out most of his torso when I get a little further along. I'm a student and am decided to start doing these competitions to get better so any critique or input is great.

    Going for a slightly unbalanced looking fire breather here.

    Tried to give her a more contorted pose, ended up with a broken leg instead. Off to find references I go.

    I'm going with the Bad Twins, acrobats. I'm using the Diane Arbus's iconic photograph as inspiration, I only hope I can pull off the creepiness without being overtly freakish.

    Worked more on it. It's feeling... clumsy. :/ Not as sinuous as I'd like.

    rgeorge: i think more of a symmetry could work in this,not total symetrical but close, like the photograph, gives more emphasis on the twinness of it
    tokotewhero: i love it man! can't wait to see it done

    Hunchback--Very cute!!


    From Bad Twins to Bad Troupe. They're some mean assassins and at war with the clowns. I just kept adding more to balance the pic. Putting those mean linoleum carving knives in their hands.

    Dile and hunchback those are absolutely FANTASTIC! Loving the mood!
    tokotewhero very good start, I cant wait to see where you're taking him!
    fdisk I like the scene, though I had to look twice to see the evilness, but I guess thats just me When I got it, I liked it. Looks a bit like Mafia covering their activities with a circus.
    vandalfish I really like it. Has a great atmosphere to it, and I like the way to lightning goes to. When I saw it, I instantly though maybe she's a prostitute for some extra money? Thats the redlight-fortune-teller-ball, I guess
    MasterTroglodyte Great concept! What is more creepy than an evil clown? I like the pose and his expression!
    reimaru Good pose!
    Elixy Great idea! And she looks sexy
    George Abraham A deadly shooter clown, I like!
    Ruri Love the Tattoos!
    Crumbelievable I like the pose and the overall appeal, but I don't quite see the evil part.
    rgeorge Evil Twins! I like! Make them creepy!
    astillac I think it looks clumsy because her legs are too short and you're lacking about 1 head in the body as well!

    Now crit the shit out of me!

    Crumbelievable I love the concept. I think it looks unbalanced because of the front foot. It looks like it is turned out too far in comparison to the rest of the body and leg.

    Thole-thanks man. clowns are awesome! do it!

    Sean McClain-cheers for the link! interesting stuff, lol sprayed on abs!

    reimaru-thanks. yeah carny posters should prove fun. though im finding it harder to come up with ways to show the dark side in a poster, will have to come up with more subtle things in the back ground or something...
    ps wips look good. really looking forward to seeing how it will progress.

    Elixy- looking rad! awesome posture, and characters personality is really coming thru.

    Nikola Marinkovic-cheers

    LibertineM- no better theme to start with man.

    David_Ray- welcome man. good on ya. id suggest finding some reference for your character. If your wanting to do a large muscle man type find some ref for how muscles take form when ppl get that big, but i think most importantly for you is to enlarge the canvas size and add his feet in there. Get him grounded show his weight by the way hes standing. (use ref for this) keep it up!


    Crumbelievable- hehe. how often that happens. nice character man. exciting pose! looking forward to it.

    ryanoir-thanks man.

    Dile- wish you would man.

    hunchback- very freaky! aghhh.. i want to draw some clowns now....

    rgeorge- I think you need to simplify it man. Twins is an awesome idea like what ryanoir said. perhaps focus on them more, and get them as interesting as possible. lots of potential there! get your freak on!

    Tawnos-thanks.



    had a little more of a play with the winged man. enlarged winged area(so that it looks like he might just be able to glide or something) having a bit of a hard time coming up with a sneaky dark talent to him, so kinda coped out with assassin. glides to building tops to assassinate high officials and such. has strengthened his hands and chiseled his nails into claws for dealing damage...

    ..not too sure about him so started playing with another idea after talking it over a little with a work mate, sticking kinda close to features of the first character design.

    meet monsieur Swinelick, the man who can eat anything. his talents are an amazing digestive system, and an immunity to poisons. his hidden talents are also surprisingly in assassination. being able to mix and hold poisonous substances in his belly, when released hes able to poison any targets in the near by region.

    crits most welcome.

    -Toko

    And the Pig-man is very funny! Love his small cup
