View Full Version : The Working Clown...fish

I did this little quickie for a January challenge (Clown Theme) for an illustration group I belong to. Wanted to keep it simple with a deeper emotional effect of a sad clown with happy makeup. Thanks for checking it out! :):)

Charming as hell. A sad clown. What could be more kitch. I think it's from the sequel: Finding Nemo a Job.

Talk about scaring the heck out of school fish everywhere -- lines with baloon bobbers. You got your fishing theme in though!

Cheers from the peanut gallery at the circus.

You're a genius in both concept and implementation! :eek::cool:
This is an absolutely brilliant idea! :D
I don't know whether's the same in English (I suspect so), but this type of Nemo-like fish in Italian is actually called pesce-pagliaccio that is clown-fish.;):p:):):)

Nemo's brother, Roy, who joined the fish-circus and now has a meth-amphetamine problem... poor guy.

Wonderfully conceived and executed Eddie. A clownfish in grease-paint. All that's missing is a tear.
