This work is really amazing! I really like the point of view and how you implement the theme ♥ It looks so scary, but also it shows the truth about drinking alcohol.
Your technique how you use watercolor is simple, but really amazing! The splahes made everything look more dramatic and also more energetic. I love the way how you use it.
It inspire me alot, so I think I want to use it, too :)
The colors look amazing, too ♥ Althought it is only black/grey/white it looks so expressiv. So the little amount of ochre makes it look more alive.
You did a great job!

i honestly don;t know what to say, usually i have a lot to say but, im speechless! the textures and the colors all form in perfect unison! The darkness of it also apeals to the darker side of a person. i also LOVE the detail you put into this. Everything down to the folds in the epic jester hat. This doesen't say 'wasted' it says 'WaStEd' as in wasted and gone. the emotion is almost radiating off of the figure. the background effect is also very lifelike and very appealing, makes it less greyscale and more apealing to the eye. Amzing job!!!

Wow this is unbelievable work. I wish I could draw like that for my art classes. The coloring is amazing and it really brings the picture together. if there were any other colors than the colors you already have chosen, it wouldn't have worked. Especially because of the title. The body is just amazingly awesome. I love this picture just because it reminds me of my nickname that I got stuck with in school. Not because I am a clown, which I am not a clown. I hate clowns. xD But because of my last name, Durr. Plus my first name but I'm not getting into that. It is just completely awesome and I hope to say more work in the future. ^^

I'd like to know what inspired you to create this grim and depressing idea?

Jay-Allen-Hansen Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
This was the start of the series of paintings for this november's art show. We are choosing random and/or selective lyrics and illustrating them. At the time this lyric was choosen, i was having a rough time with things (Im not going to get into it here). Lets just say i was depressed, and drinking alot. It just hit me then, and i cant even describe how realistic this felt when i was drawing it out. The quote was so ironic and true at that moment. I do refer to this as a self portrait. And there is alot of symbolism in this piece.

The Suspension of the character represents the buzz. The Ribs represent being held back. The Jesters cap represents being the fool. Missing Segments represent the emptiness. And the entire background represents the only way to release the rage without destroying everything. I like my booze. I was drunk and i let this painting create itself somewhat. It certainly was an icebreaker when trying to draw attention away from my ZOMBIE GIRLS project.

Does this help any?

Quite a lot you've gone through which would inspire this artwork.

Yes it does help explain a lot. Thanks
