        • Very good! Now I'm even MORE scared of clowns!
        • Thanks

          Yeah clowns are pretty scary
        • Nice work.
          Excellent contrast with the balloons and background.
        • Nice... A+ for sure It appears to have little black lines by his eyes and a square by his mouth, masking maybe?
        • thanks for suggestions

          i think i fixed the chin it had little squares that i corrected and then redarkened

          then i made the area around eyes little darker to so i hope it looks even better now
        • Thanks Kratos

        • Great idea.
          Should the orbits come around the front on the nucleus ?
        • Yes, the orbits probably should go in front. I'm definitely no scientist.

          Thanks for the positive feedback, everyone!
        • Welcome to Freaking News, Shef! and congratulations on your first entry and first trophy!

        • Not sure if it looks like painting - rather it looks like a pressed photo on canvas. It's wonderfully blended though
        • Thanks NM...yea, now that you mention it, I guess it is more of pressed photo look.

        • A funny and nice chop, but most of the shadows look like stains and a bit unreal (they should be made neater and darker in my humble opinion).
        • Agree with PaulHisson on shadows; otherwise nice chop
        • Really great concept combining the sources from different contests!

          but I agree with Paul about the shadows.

        • Hilarious concept, love it!
          The balloon's string looks painted though with one solid color and one line thickness.
          Also some balloon basking leaves rough edges
