Delirium, Who Was Once Delight by alsobroken Delirium, Who Was Once Delight by alsobroken
Delirium of the Endless from Neil Gaiman's Sandman series.

I've always wondered if she has moments of lucidity amidst her insanity.
Or does everything that enters her brain come out as flying goldfish and words that "mean green and red at the same time?"

Wanted to do something totally different than my usual stuff.
So this is an homage (hopefully a flattering one) to two of my favorite artists on DA:

Here's another Sandman pic I did:

I'm in utter awe (and slightly confused and amused by the very well drawn goldfish).
It's good when art renders you speachless.. but I guess not so good for the artist who wants to know how to improve ^^;

Awesome perspective on the face! If you're going for realism i wud suggest u bring up the left shoulder a bit but if u just want to exaggerate then it's all good! :thumbsup::D

Her nose looks a bit crooked, don't know if you meant for it to be that way though._. Anyway, the patterns and colours really bring life to this. It's very pretty(:

You have several good paintings - but this one sticks out to me the most. :D

First, the anatomy on the face is near perfect. Her head is tilted at slightly impossible angle, but that fits concerning the delirium theme.

The colors are just awesome - I love how you used mainly colors to show your theme - it makes this a visually exciting piece, and adds fun and interest to structure.

The abstract designs on her neck and the multi-color eye shadow are the finishing touch on this - it adds that final intrigue that makes this look fantastic.

GREAT work! :D

This is fascinating. You've totally upended the concepts of the "normal" light and shadow colors I'd expect to see, and you played them masterfully. There's such a riot going on here and yet you've shaped it into a beautiful piece of art.

I'm with HellV on this one. Love to comment, but once again my puny dictionary fails me. It's the size of a matchbook - I kid you not! Damn you, diminutive dictionary! This is the last time you subvert my ability to leave comments...
